Pill Dispenser With Compliance Features

Publication number: 9,579,264

Application number: 14/485,371

A pill dispenser is configured to receive a plurality of different pill types into discrete pill reservoirs, whereby a dose of different pills may be provided to a user in a dispense reservoir. A vacuum manifold may be configured with a vacuum tube for removing pills from the discrete reservoirs and placing them into the dispense reservoir. In one embodiment, a pill dispenser is part of a pill dispenser system that utilizes a remote electronic device having an application software program for setting, managing and displaying the dosing regimens for pills loaded into the pill dispenser. The application software program may be coupled with a prescribing pill database, whereby prescription pill information, including dosing regimens may be loaded onto the application software program to ensure compliance with the prescription.

THERAPUETIC PURSE

Publication number: 9,579,233

Application number: 13/928,444

A therapeutic purse configured with a therapeutic device including a cushion, or a thermal pouch is provided. The therapeutic purse is an enclosure having an interior volume and at least one opening to the interior volume and a closure feature. In one embodiment, the interior volume of the purse comprises a therapeutic pocket configured for containing a therapeutic device. In yet another embodiment, the therapeutic purse comprises a hot or cold pouch that may comprise a substance that may be transferred into a conduit coupled to the strap.

WIRELESS BATTERY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

Publication number: 9,553,460

Application number: 14/657,248

A wireless battery management system includes a computing device and first and second battery unit monitoring modules. The computing device includes an output data request port and an input data port. In response to a data request from the output data request port of the computing device, a first battery unit monitoring module transmits data of the first battery unit to the input data port of the computing device wirelessly and may transmits a data request to the second battery unit monitoring module. In response, the second battery unit monitoring module may transmit data of the second battery unit to the input data port of the computing device wirelessly or transmit data of the second battery to the first module for wireless transmission. In addition, each battery unit monitoring module may communicate wirelessly and independently with the computing device.

HELMET IMPACT SIMULATOR AND METHOD

Publication number: 9,552,747

Application number: 15/067,846

A head impact test apparatus is configured to enable viewing a head model including a brain component that may be at least partially surrounded by a fluid component and within a skull component. A head model may be a cross-sectional model of a person’s head and have a translucent cover extending over the cross-sectional plane to enable viewing and image capture of the components of the head model. A camera may be configured to take a plurality of images during an impact test. These images may be analyzed to determine the acceleration and deformation of the brain component. An impact element is configured to impact the head model and the head model may have any type of helmet thereon. A helmet component may comprise a helmet cover. The test may be used to determine the effectiveness of helmets and helmet covers in reducing brain trauma.

MULTI-STRAND ELECTRODE AND METHOD OF MAKING

Publication number: 9,546,429

Application number: 14/250,509

An electrode having a plurality of connected strands retained by a current collector is described. A connected strand has first and second ends that are retained by a current collector, and may be retained at different locations along the length of the current collector. A connected strand retained by the current collector in substantially the same location along the current collector, is a looped strand. A connected strand provides two paths for current to move through the strand to the current collector and may therefore provide lower resistance than a free strand having only one end coupled to the current collector. Furthermore, a connected may move less as a function of fluid forces and retain more bio-film in turbulent conditions than free strands. Finally, a connected strand has no free extended end and therefore is less likely to puncture through an ion conductive membrane.

HAND-HELD RADIATION DETECTOR

Publication number: 9,530,300

Application number: 14/035,941

A hand-held radiation detector that produces a voltage as a function of the amount of ionizing radiation is described. The hand-held radiation detector may be configured for measuring low levels of ionizing radiation including alpha radiation. A light alert feature may blink and/or a sound alert feature may produce a bird chirping sound at a frequency relative to the amount of radiation detected. The ionizing radiation detector may have an ion chamber comprising a first electrode chamber and a second electrode configured inside the first electrode chamber, and it may be an open type ion chamber allowing ambient air to enter the ion chamber. A sensitivity range selector may be used to increase or decrease the voltage range for detection. An input selector may be used to select the type of detection a user desires, such as consumables or radon gas for example.

TRANSVERSE FLUX STATOR GEOMETRY

Publication number: 9,509,181

Application number: 14/101,415

An electrical machine includes a rotor for rotation about a rotational axis, a coil arranged circumferentially with respect to and encircling the rotational axis, and a stator assembly. The stator assembly includes a unitary lamina comprising a plurality of extending members integral therewith, the extending members being bent to form a plurality of opposing extending members about the coil. The electrical machine is at least one of a transverse flux machine or a commutated flux machine. Methods of manufacturing stators for assembly with rotors to form electrical machines are also disclosed.

NEUTRON BEAM DIFFRACTION MATERIAL TREATMENT SYSTEM

Publication number: 9,508,460

Application number: 14/925,970

A neutron beam diffraction material treatment system utilizes a neutron beam source configured to produce a first neutron beam having a first direction and second neutron beam source configured to produce a second neutron beam having a second direction. The neutron beam diffraction material treatment system can direct the first and second neutron beams to intersect with each other in or on a work-piece and thereby treat the work piece by neutron diffraction. One or more of the neutron beams may be configured to move to change the location of the intersecting point within the work-piece and/or the work-piece may be configured to move. The first and second neutron beams may be configured with a magnetic coil configured around the neutron beam and between the neutron beam source and the work-piece. The magnetic coil may be used to contain the neutron beams and reduce the scattering of neutron.

RECEPTACLE CONFIGURED FOR LINER REPLACMENT WITHOUT LID REMOVAL

Publication number: 9,499,337

Application number: 14/834,845

A receptacle having a lid coupled to a receptacle body by a hinge is configured for the replacement of a flexible liner without removal of the lid. A flange extension is configured at an offset distance to the hinge and enables the perimeter of the flexible liner to be retained in a liner retainer and extend up and over the hinge and into a flange extension on the opposing side of the hinge. This configuration holds the perimeter of the flexible liner taut and ensures that it remains in place as contents are placed in the receptacle. A pair of trunnion hinges may extend in opposing directions from the receptacle body to provide a detachable attachment of a lid. A flange extension may extend substantially around the liner retainer portion or only a certain distance from the end of a hinge.

Bottle With Storable Flexible Spout

Publication number: 9,499,315

Application number: 14/323,378

A bottle has a flexible spout and a cap/cover configuration that effectively seals the spout from leakage and stores it under the cover. The flexible spout is folded or bent in two locations as it is secured within the cover. The flexible spout is folded over from an extended orientation and then around a fold partition. The cover is detachably attached to the cap. A diaphragm extends under the cap and seals liquid within the enclosure. In one embodiment, the cover and cap are configured with a ratchet mechanism that allows the cover to rotate in only one direction. In one embodiment, the bottle comprises two enclosures, and the enclosures may be detachably attached to each other or to a handle.
