  • Publication number: 20190106018
    Abstract: A method of controlling movement of a first component of a vehicle, the first component being a squab or a bulkhead of a rear seat of a vehicle seating arrangement. The method involves receiving a signal indicative of a state of a second component of the vehicle and receiving a request to move the bulkhead so that the seat is in a folded condition. The squab of the rear seat is moved into engagement with the bulkhead of the rear seat prior to moving the bulkhead; and movement of the bulkhead is commenced in accordance with the request and in dependence on the signal indicative of the state of the second component.

  • Patent number: 9569770
    Abstract: Techniques for generating and providing phrases are described herein. These techniques may include analyzing one or more sources to generate a first corpus of phrases, each of the phrases for use as an identifier and/or for association with a user. Once a first corpus of phrases has been generated, these phrases may be filtered to define a second corpus of phrases. Phrases of this second corpus may then be suggested to one or more users. In some instances, the phrases suggested to a particular user are personalized to the user based on information previously known about the user or based on information provided by the user.

  • Patent number: 8832558
    Abstract: Techniques for presenting patient data at the patient's bedside include receiving predetermined presentation style data that indicates a subset of fewer than all parameters available from an electronic medical records (EMR) system and a first arrangement on a display device of related parameters in the subset. Without human intervention, the most recent values from the EMR system are received. The most recent values are associated in the EMR system with the particular patient for corresponding parameters of the subset. A first most recent value is presented according to the first arrangement at the particular bedside display device without human intervention. In some embodiments, the most recent values are also received or presented in response to a single stroke from a human user at an input for the particular display device.

  • Patent number: 8224583
    Abstract: Techniques for medical infusions include determining a first infusion rate for administering a first medication to a patient. A fluid load is determined based at least in part on the first infusion rate. It is determined whether the fluid load exceeds a predetermined threshold based on a fluid maintenance rate. If it is determined that the fluid load exceeds the predetermined threshold, then an action is caused to inhibit administering the first medication to the patient at the first infusion rate.

  • Patent number: 7813880
    Abstract: Optimum concentrations for a drug administered as a medical infusion to a patient, particularly a pediatric patient, are determined. The determination is made using inputs regarding (1) the drug to be administered; (2) the patient; and (3) the infusion process. The optimum concentrations are displayed to a user, such as any health care provider. A chart illustrating the distributions of concentrations over a range of doses and patient weights is also provided.

  • Publication number: 20100205599
    Abstract: A method and device for dealing with problem of software-incompatibility or obsolescence of hardware. The method includes copying of information regarding architecture and other features from hardware components, conversion of existing hardware-specific software to suit architecture of new hardware component and transmittal of adapted software to new hardware. The method and device provide for enabling semi automatic migration of hardware-specific software between hardware components such as computer processors. This process of software migration, in turn, provides for effective transfer of functionality from one hardware component to the other. This novel process can be used for migration of software from one processor to the other.
