Computer-Implemented Method of Preoperatively Determining the Optimized External Shape of a Prosthetic Femoral Hip Stem

US20130325430A1

Computer-implemented method of preoperatively determining the optimized external shape of a prosthetic femoral hip stem for use in partial cementing hip replacement procedures and of a reamer for reaming a cavity in the femur of a patient for implanting the prosthetic femoral hip stem, comprising: a) setting an initial external shape of the prosthetic femoral hip stem based on the reconstructed femur anatomy of a patient, b) generating an associated initial reamer by negatively offsetting the initial external shape of the prosthetic femoral hip stem by an uniform offset value δ, c) calculating contact stresses at the interface of the prosthetic femoral hip stem and the patient's femur when reamed by the initial reamer and d) optimizing the offset value δ, so that the contact stresses are within a predetermined acceptable range.

Patent (1): https://patents.google.com/patent/US9430682B1/en

Pressure Profile Data Coding System and Method

US9430682B1

The pressure profile data coding system and method maps the binary data standard format (0, 1) to a prominent and a non-prominent square shape milled inside a proper material called the code stamp. The code stamp can be scanned using a high spatial resolution, high sensitivity pressure sensor array to get a pressure profile coded image of this code stamp. The acquired gray level image has two color regions including one color region having high gray color values mapping the prominent region of the code stamp, and the second color region having low gray color values mapping the non-prominent region of the code stamp. The two color regions are arranged in a square grid, which can be processed using Reed-Solomon error correction until the image can be appropriately interpreted. The required data are then extracted from patterns present in both horizontal and vertical components of the image.

Pulser Logic Method and System for an Ultrasound Beamformer

US9251781B1

The pulser logic method and system for an ultrasound beamformer is based on using memory blocks instead of ordinary binary counters to accomplish transmit focusing of an ultrasound beam. This method reduces the use count of logic blocks (cost reduction) and facilitates the FPGA floor planner routing, increasing the design overall speed (performance enhancement). The exemplary design disclosed herein is for sixteen channels, but can be adjusted for any number of beamformer channels. The design may use, for example, a Xilinx Spartan-3 field programmable gate array (FPGA).

System for Enabling a Visually Impaired or Blind Person to Use an Input Device Having at Least One Key

US9418572 B2

System for enabling a visually impaired or blind person to use an input device having at least one key, comprising: at least one tactile sensor array, in particular a pressure sensor array, attachable to a fingertip of a visually impaired or blind person for acquiring a pressure distribution image of a key slightly touched by a finger of said person when attached to said finger, a pressure distribution image processing and character recognition unit that is connected to said tactile sensor array for processing said pressure distribution image and for recognizing the key label of the touched key and an audio output device that is connected to said unit for outputting and acoustic reproduction of said key label.

 

 

Patent (4): US20170135634

Thigh Adhesion Quantitative Measurement System

US20170135634

The thigh adhesion quantitative measurement system is a sensor system for precisely locating fibers and/or bands of connective tissue formed between layers of body tissue, binding the layers together and not permitting them to glide over each other. This bonding is called an adhesion. The present system is designed to determine quantitatively the degree of adhesion and the location of high-pressure adhe­ sion(s) such that medical removal procedures (e.g., liposuc­tion) can be precisely performed. The system makes use of a scanning device having an array of pressure sensors, the scanning device being defined by a flexible plate wrapped by a belt to a patient's limb, such as a thigh. A flexible cable connects the plate to a body-worn transmitter that wirelessly transmits real-time pressure distribution images received from the flexible plate to a computer for use by doctors preparing for the liposuction procedure.
