Endovascular Variable Aortic Control Catheter US Patent Application 20160206798
Improved devices for hemostatic management of patients with life-threatening blood loss from an arterial wound or surgery. These devices, by blocking blood flow and oxygen delivery, severely limit the amount of time that such resuscitative measures can be taken before other medical complications arise. The major improvement in the present endovascular variable aortic control (EVAC) device is that it occludes blood flow, but not entirely, with some control. Specifically, EVAC allows greater control in the level of aortic blood flow and pressure on either side of the occlusion barrier. EVAC features either non-balloon or balloon-based occlusion capabilities in a multi-lumen catheter, which includes an external regulation device that allows medical staff to regulate blood flow and pressure by affecting the aperture of the window in the main channel of the device.
SAGA: Measuring Similarity between Data Sets
This invention measures similarities between sets of data. The data could be natural language documents or articles, product descriptions, queries, computer code, metadata, or measurements from any real-world objects or processes. The technology is able to determine similarities between data sets without needing to know how they interact. Omitting duplicate pieces of data allows the technology to provide more accurate results. Additionally, this technology can provide patterns over time of the data entered. This invention takes a holistic view of the data to make recommendations that are more accurate than commonly used methods.
Touch Based Tracking
Touch Tracking Technology was developed in the Air Force’s Munition Directorate. This technology tracks targets using information from humans as well as autonomous agents in such a way that results can be easily comprehended by other humans and autonomous agents and flexible to various target types, environments, and human variability.
A Wavelength Dispersive Microscope Spectrofluorometer for Measuring Multiple Particles Simultaneously
Inexpensive devices and methods for obtaining emission or scattering spectra of multiple particles simultaneously and for characterizing the particles based on their emission or scattering spectra. Useful for analyzing multiple particles to determine one or more characteristics of the particles, such as size, type, elastic scattering, fluorescence and/or Raman characteristics, for distinguishing between biological and non-biological particles, and for biomedical assaying applications.
Measuring Voice Signal Enhancement
This technology measures the degree of enhancement made to a voice signal, reducing the need for human arbitrations and other various listening tests. Statistically, voice signals are “non-stationary,” changing over time. The more a signal becomes corrupted, however, the more stationary its distribution of values becomes. In this technology, the degree of reduction in the signal’s distribution indicates the degree of enhancement made to the signal. This invention quantifies the voice enhancement by comparing how stationary the distribution of values are between original and enhanced signals.
Articulating Resistive Conformable (ARC) Spine
A flexible load bearing system that includes numerous vertebrae. Each vertebra has a first portion, a second portion, and a socket formed in it. The links each have a ball at both ends. The column or spine of vertebrae is connected with the ball and socket mechanism. the system can be adjusted with a tensioning system that allows for variable flexibility and range of motion changes and allows for maximum available freedom of motion while supporting significant weight.
Recognizing Sounds of Speech of Any Language US PATENT # 7,430,503 | US PATENT # 7,406,408
This technology processes spoken sounds, independent of the language used, and translates them into text. Using a unique, universal alphabet comprised of phonetic sounds from approximately 15 languages, this technology enables the ability to train speech recognition systems to recognize sounds from different languages. Speech processing applications rely on their corpora for translation—that is, their internal database of text that aids in translation. Multi-lingual speech processing applications typically require corpora from each language to be merged into one large corpora. This is problematic, as the applications can sometimes produce inaccurate or unintelligible results. This technology’s built-in corpora, or database of writings, allows speech processing applications to identify sounds from multiple languages without the need for manual checking or outside databases.
Injection Site Imaging With Near-Infrared (NIR) US application number 20170106141
A noninvasive and readily transportable, near-infrared (NIR) imaging system that displays in real time. The system permits detection and visualization of extravasation or infiltration by contrast media, blood, medicines, or other fluids and substances. The system therefore allows detection of depth, size, location and direction of movement, rate of movement or flow, shape, constitution, volume, and other defining aspects of the fluid path.
