Abstract

Introduced here are retinal cameras having one or more optical components whose position can be modified so that the left and right eyes can be imaged during a single imaging operation. Collectively, the optical component(s) may be referred to as an “optical assembly.” An optical assembly can include the objective lens, lens tube, and other optical components such as mirror(s), light source(s), capturing medium(s), etc. An optical assembly of a retinal camera may be movable between a first position and a second position along an arcuate path. By moving the optical assembly between the first and second positions along the arcuate path, the retinal camera can align the lens tube with the left and right eyes of an individual while clearing her nose. Thus, the retinal camera may generate images of the left and right eyes during an imaging procedure without requiring that the individual move her head.

Abstract

Introduced here are retinal cameras having optical stops whose size can be adjusted to enable self-alignment by naturally guiding an eye toward a specified location. Generally, a retinal camera will constrict the bounds of an optical stop until the optical stop is aligned with the eye. In some embodiments, the optical stop is mechanically resized as a subject shifts their eye. In some embodiments, the optical stop is digitally created using a pixelated liquid crystal display (LCD) layer having multiple pixels that are individually controllably. In some embodiments, multiple non-pixelated LCD layers are connected to one another to form a variable transmission stack. In such embodiments, the size of the optical stop can be varied by changing which LCD layer(s) are active at a given point in time.

Abstract

To better understand the impact of glycemic events, some entities have begun examining the relationship between the blood glucose level and another physiological parameter. However, this relationship can be difficult to understand. Introduced here are computer programs and associated computer-implemented techniques for discovering glycemic events in a series of data values representative of blood glucose measurements and then altering the measurement schedule of a sensor capable of generating measurements in a dimension other than blood glucose based on the glycemic events. By altering the measurement schedule of the sensor, a diabetes management platform can better understand how, if at all, dimensions other than blood glucose are related to the glycemic health state of a subject whose blood glucose level is being monitored.

Abstract

The technology described herein is related to a two-phase deployment-initiated wakeup mechanism for a body-mountable electronic device. During a first phase of the two-phase wakeup mechanism, a motion sensor detects an acceleration event indicative of deployment of the device onto the body of the user. During a second phase of the two-phase mechanism, control circuitry can be adapted to be enabled by the acceleration event. Once enabled, the control circuitry can verify that the device has been launched onto the body of a user via a deployment applicator in which the device is retained until deployment. Once verified, the control circuitry can wake up the body-mountable electronic device by transitioning the device from a sleep state to a functional (or operational) state.

Abstract

Introduced here are approaches to assessing whether digital features (or simply “features”) detected in digital images by detection models are representative of artifacts that can obscure actual pathologies. A diagnostic platform may characterize each digital feature detected in a digital image based on its likelihood of being an artifact. For instance, a digital feature could be characterized as being representative of an artifact caused by improper illumination, an artifact caused by a physical element that is adhered to the lens through which light is collected by an imaging device, or a pathological feature indicative of a disease.

Abstract

Systems are provided for detecting the flow of blood in vasculature by illuminating the blood with a source of coherent illumination and detecting one or more time-varying properties of a light speckle pattern that results from the scattering of the coherent illumination by tissue and blood. The movement of blood cells and other light-scattering elements in the blood causes transient, short-duration changes in the speckle pattern. High-frequency sampling or other high-bandwidth processing of a detected intensity at one or more points in the speckle pattern could be used to determine the flow of blood in the vasculature. Such flow-measuring systems are also presented as wearable devices that can be operated to detect the flow in vasculature of a wearer. Systems and methods provided herein can additionally be applied to measure flow in other scattering fluid media, for example in a scattering industrial, medical, pharmaceutical, or environmental fluid.

Abstract

An insect dispensing system is described. The insect dispensing system includes a plate diverting structure supported by a frame. A first plate of the structure includes a set of channels and a second plate of the structure includes a set of apertures. The plates are aligned such that one end of each channel is aligned with one of the apertures. A population of insect pupae suspended in a liquid is dispensed into the set of channels via an inlet. As the liquid flows through the system, it is distributed among the set of channels, ultimately exiting via the apertures into a set of catch basins.

Abstract

An insect separating apparatus may include a sensor positioned to detect one or more insects when present within a test chamber. For example, the sensor may emit signals into the test chamber and receive reflected signals indicative of Doppler shifts caused by movement of the one or more insects. Based on information from the sensor, a computing device may determine a characteristic of the one or more insects in the chamber, such as a wing beat frequency, sex, or other characteristic. The computing device may instruct different responses based on the characteristic determined, such as activating an air mover to divert detected mosquitos out of the test chamber in response to the determined characteristics matching those of female mosquitos, or deactivating or maintaining the air mover in an inactive condition in response to the determined characteristics matching those of male mosquitos, for example, to allow passage through the chamber into a collection receptacle.

Abstract

Systems and methods are provided for continuously monitoring a user to determine when cardiovascular events are likely occurring and to responsively provide a prompt to a user to engage in additional physiological assessment of the putative cardiovascular event. Additional assessment can include the user engaging an additional sensor to provide signals that are more accurate, lower noise, or otherwise improved relative to a continuously-monitoring sensor used to initially detect the cardiovascular event. Detection of cardiovascular events includes using a cardiovascular classifier to determine, based on the output of such a continuously-monitoring sensor, whether the event is likely occurring. Such a classifier can be received from a cloud computing service or other remote system based on sensor outputs sent to such a system. Use of such a classifier can facilitate reduced false-positive detection of cardiovascular events based on the continuously-monitoring sensor, and thus reduce extraneous prompts to the user.

Abstract

Systems and methods for detecting determining a volume of urine in an absorbent article such as a diaper. A diaper loading application obtains a first measurement of ambient light received from a photodetector while a light source is off and a second measurement from the photodetector while the light source is transmitting light on an absorbent article. The application determines a normalized measurement of light reflected from an absorbent article by removing an ambient light signal from the second measurement based on the first measurement. The application determines, from the normalized measurement, a presence of urine in the absorbent article. The application further determines an estimated volume of urine in the absorbent article, wherein the determining is based on an elapsed time since the presence of urine and an activity state of an infant wearing the absorbent article.

Abstract

Various examples are described for detecting heart rate and respiratory rate by using measurements of light applied to skin through an article. For example, a sensor application obtains a set of measurements of light. The application compensates for a contribution of the article based on one or more known optical properties of the article. The sensor application further determines, from the set of measurements of light, a periodic change in amplitude. The sensor application identifies the periodic change in amplitude as a heart rate having an identical periodicity. The sensor application identifies a respiratory rate as equal to the rate of change of the heart rate.

Abstract

The present disclosure is related to an apparatus and system for synthesizing and administering particle-based therapeutics at the point-of-care. The apparatus includes a first chamber for receiving a first solution including lipids in a first solvent, a second chamber for receiving a second solution including nucleic acids in a second solvent, a mixing channel in communication with the first chamber and the second chamber, and a delivery system in communication with the to the mixing channel. The first solution in the first chamber and the second solution in the second chamber can be introduced into the mixing channel. The particle-based delivery system form in the mixing channel and the nucleic acids adhere to the particles. The formulated particle-based therapeutics are passed through a delivery system to a subject for administration.
