  • Patent number: 6146349
    Abstract: A copolymer thermoplastic natural foot orthosis for supporting and controlling the movement of a lower extremity and method for manufacturing the same. The orthosis is fabricated by forming a positive mold of the lower extremity, and modifying the positive mold in predetermined locations to accomplish the type of lower extremity control desired. A strip of heated thermoformable copolymer material is strategically positioned around predetermined locations on the positive mold for providing increased support for the natural foot orthosis at these predetermined locations. A sheet of heated thermoformable copolymer material is then drape mold around the positive mold and copolymer strip, wherein the copolymer sheet is vacuum sealed to conform to the shape of the positive mold. During the vacuum formation process, the copolymer sheet and copolymer strip combine together so that the copolymer sheet and copolymer strip are integrally formed into a single supporting structure.

  • Publication number: 20150193834
    Abstract: A system and method is provided for adding at least one advertisement to a personal communication and providing additional communication data to a recipient that interacts with the advertisement. A sender network device communicates with an advertising application operating on a Web site to generate a personal communication containing at least one advertisement, where the at least one advertisement is selected from a palette of advertisements. In one embodiment of the present invention, the sender has control over advertisements that are displayed together with the personal communication by allowing the sender to delete (or remove) an advertisement from either the at least one advertisement or the palette of advertisements. If a displayed advertisement is interactive, and the advertisement is interacted with, the advertising application will provide the recipient with additional communication data in a format that can be understood by the recipient network device.

  • Publication number: 20140025501
    Abstract: A system and method is provided for adding an advertisement to a digital message. An advertisement generator residing on a network host accepts digital messages from contributors and allows the contributors to select an advertisement to be displayed with their contributed messages. These digital messages may be sent to specified recipients or published on a Web site. Using stored personal data associated with the contributor and with the recipient of a digital message, in addition to the content of the message itself, the advertisement generator suggests advertisements to be included with the digital messages based on their contextual relevance. If the contributor-selected advertisement is provided by a third party advertiser, the message, contributor, and advertisement data may be utilized to compensate the contributor of that message for sending it to at least one recipient or posting it on a Web site.

  • Publication number: 20200279585
    Abstract: A method is provided for acquiring and transmitting biometric data (e.g., vital signs) of a user, where the data is analyzed to determine whether the user is suffering from a viral infection, such as COVID-19. The method includes using a pulse oximeter to acquire at least pulse and blood oxygen saturation percentage, which is transmitted wirelessly to a smartphone. To ensure that the data is accurate, an accelerometer within the smartphone is used to measure movement of the smartphone and/or the user. Once accurate data is acquired, it is uploaded to the cloud (or host), where the data is used (alone or together with other vital signs) to determine whether the user is suffering from (or likely to suffer from) a viral infection, such as COVID-19. Depending on the specific requirements, the data, changes thereto, and/or the determination can be used to alert medical staff and take corresponding actions.
