  • Publication number: 20210124925
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a picture hook identification method as well as an apparatus and a terminal device using the same. The method includes; determining geometric parameter(s) of an identification object based on image(s) collected b a camera and internal parameter(s) of the camera; comparing the geometric parameters of the identification object with geometric parameter(s) of a target picture book; and determining the identification object as the target picture book, if a difference between the geometric parameters of the identification object and the geometric parameters of the target picture book is within a preset range. In this manner, the target picture book is further filtered by matching the geometric parameters, which can reduce misidentification to improve the accuracy of identifying the picture book.

  • Patent number: 10835295
    Abstract: An implantable spacer for placement between adjacent spinous processes is provided. The spacer includes a body and a wing rotatably connected to the body. The wing includes two U-shaped configurations that together define a substantially H-shaped configuration for retaining the spacer between adjacent spinous processes. An actuator assembly is connected to the body and to the wing with the proximal end of the spacer being connectable to a removable driver that is configured to engage the actuator assembly. While connected to the spacer, the driver is rotatable in one direction to deploy the wing from an undeployed to a deployed configuration and in an opposite direction to undeploy the wing. In the deployed configuration, the spacer acts as a space holder opening up the area of the spinal canal, maintaining foraminal height, reducing stress on the facet joints and relieving pain for the patient.
