  • Patent number: 5930762
    Abstract: A computer method manages risk in multiple-parameter physical systems performing interrelated activities, where at least one of such activities is risk-related in that it may have an outcome level which may fall outside of boundary limits. The method establishes a course of action (strategy) for the physical systems that facilitates preventing any outcome levels for risk-related activities from falling outside of boundary limits. The method assumes the existence of a computational multiscenario decision-making model that describes the physical systems and determines, under some set of criteria, both feasible and desirable levels of their activities. The method may assume either certainty, under which the value of each model parameter is known, or uncertainty, under which the values of one or more of model parameters are unknown.

  • Patent number: 4247961
    Abstract: A pillow, which may take the form of an automobile headrest, has a fastener that controls communication to an interior compartment of the pillow. A removable shock absorber liner fits into the interior compartment and defines a pocket which is adapted to receive and store first aid (medical) supplies and emergency equipment. An elastic body fits into the pocket in the liner. The shock absorber liner and the elastic body are both easily removable from the interior of the pillow and are useful as first aid equipment. With the fastener open, a plastic, transparent organizer containing first aid equipment and emergency supplies is inserted into the pocket of the liner. This compresses the elastic body. The fastener is then closed. When the fastener is opened, the organizer is automatically at least partially ejected from the pillow.
