2013-273 – Background: Aerobic fitness is one of the best predictors of all-cause mortality but not easily assessed on a large scale accurately. Technology Description: A web based health fitness assessment tool which may be carried out at any location and requires nothing more than a device camera, web portal, a step, and a chair. Using technology based light reflection and color spectrum, heart... Read More
2013-056 – The invention is a method to prepare hydroxamate resin for use in metal ion separations.
2012-258 – We have invented an apparatus that automates the standard Drosophila climbing behavioral assay. Traditionally, the climbing assay is performed manually, one vial at a time using the human eye and a stopwatch. 10 flies are place in a vial with a mark placed 2cm from the bottom of the vail. The flies are tapped down to the bottom of the vial by hand and a stopwatch started. The number of flies... Read More
2010-318 – An innovative freight management solution has been developed which represents a new business model developed on transparency and risk-sharing within a reseller market. Working with supply partners, key individuals within supply chain management have developed this program which involves practice, process and designs generally not used or common within healthcare. The solution results in... Read More
2010-296 – Communications between electronic components employ one of a number of signaling schemes. Generally, digital communications use one of two classes of signaling schemes: single-ended or differential signaling. A single-ended signaling channel employs transmission of n-level (typically 2-level) signals through a single signal conductor, using a ground or power conductor as the reference for... Read More
2010-233 – The inner ear vestibular system reflexively controls eye position in the orbits. For example, when the head is tilted to the side (ear moved toward the shoulder) the eyes roll in the opposite direction so that they stay oriented to the horizon. This eye movement is called head tilt induced ocular counter roll and is mediated in part by the otolith organs of the vascular system. Damage to... Read More
2010-138 – This invention describes a mathematical method for reliably describing audiometric configuration and classifying the severity of hearing impairment. It has been shown to accurately correlate with the patient self reports of hearing difficulty better than any other classification method currently used in clinical audiology.
2010-137 – This invention describes a novel calculation called the Speech Transmission Index based Social Hearing Index (STI-SHI or social hearing index for short). The social hearing index can be calculated using standard pure tone hearing threshold data and supra-threshold measures of speech intelligibility. The STI-SHI can be useful in refining the legal definition of hearing disability and will also... Read More
2009-314 – This disclosure is for a continuation-in-part to US Patent Application No: US 2006/0056310 A1. The original patent application uses only a symmetrical THRU structure for de-embedding. In this disclosure both OPEN and SHORT structures are presented as additional structures that, once measured with a VNA, can yield additional equations.
2009-140 – This technology relates to materials and methods for inhibiting botulinum neurotoxins (BoNTs), and more particularly to materials and methods for inhibiting the zinc endopeptidase of BoNT serotypes A, D, and/or E (BoNTA, BoNTD and /or BoNTE to (1) treat botulism, (2) Protect against botulism, or (3) use as an adjunct therapy during administration of medical toxins that are based upon...
