||PCT/CA2013/050551||CSABAI, Julius S.||CSABAI, Julius S.|
A warmable pad and method for mounting the same to a ware, such as a dinner plate, are described. The pad has a first border and a first contact surface which can be removably applied to a surface of the ware. The pad also has a depression recessed from the first border and which contains air. The pad also has a second contact surface which is compressed by the user when the first border is placed against the surface of the ware. The compression of the second contact surface forces air out of the depression and pushes the first contact surface toward the surface of the ware. This lowers the pressure between the first contact surface and surface of the ware, creating a suction effect maintaining the pad against the ware. The pad can be warmed before being removably mounted to the ware so as to warm the ware, and any food or beverage it may contain.

||PCT/CA2013/050568||CLARKE, Trisha||CLARKE, Trisha|
There is described a method of treating long hair. A first step involves receiving a client with long hair that extends past his or her shoulders for a length down his or her back. A second step involves providing a containment vessel that has a depth that exceeds the length of the long hair of the client. A third step involves supporting a head of the client with the long hair freely suspended down into the containment vessel. A fourth step involves performing a treatment with the long hair suspended down into the containment vessel.

||PCT/CA2013/050558||DUNDEE SUSTAINABLE TECHNOLOGIES INC.||LALANCETTE, Jean-Marc|
A method for recovering precious metal from an acidic pregnant solution resulting from halogen or hypohalite leaching of an ore, comprising lowering the ORP of the pregnant leachate with a reducing agent in the presence of slurried non-carboneous particules. The precious metal deposits on the surfaces of the particles and a barren solution comprising substantially all the halogen values of the pregnant solution in the form of sodium chloride, sodium bromide or hypohalites is recovered.
||WO||WO/2015/006848 - FLEXIBLE LIGHT TREATMENT HEAD||22.01.2015||
||PCT/CA2013/050549||MEDITECH INTERNATIONAL INC.||HACCO, Eli|
A flexible light treatment head comprising one or more light source modules interconnected by a hinge apparatus along a flexing edge thereof. The light source modules have light emitting elements, such as LEDs or LASERs. The hinge apparatus comprises one or more hinges. Each hinge has a head wiring channel disposed to form a continuous wiring channel along the hinge apparatus. A head wiring channel is also provided for routing wires into the light source module.

||PCT/CA2013/050855||INSTITUT NATIONAL D'OPTIQUE||SISTO, Marco Michele|
A method for operating a LED lighting system having three or more LED emitters of different colors is provided. The method allows finding the optimal drive setting for each LED emitter of the system, taking into account a specific target color. The method involves providing calibration data for each LED emitter at a plurality of values of drive setting and junction temperature, and executing a drive recursion loop calculating the drive setting of each emitter based on an input value for the temperature of each emitter and in view of the target output color and of the calibration data. Advantageously, this can be accomplished without measuring the color emitted by the LED lighting system, that is, no color feedback is required. A LED lighting system implementing the method is also disclosed.

||PCT/CA2014/000342||BIONIK LABORATORIES, INC.||CAIRES, Thiago|
A control system for an exoskeleton for a limb of a user wherein the limb has an upper portion connected to the body of a user and a lower limb portion is provided. The control system controls operation of one or more drive motors that rotate one or more joints of the exoskeleton. Input signals from pressure sensors and positional sensors are monitored and, when the input signals fall within expected values, one or more control actions may be implemented.

||PCT/CA2014/000497||MEDTRONIC CRYOCATH LP||MIHALIK, Teresa|
A system for cryotreatment and mapping of target tissue. The cryotreatment system may include a cryotreatment catheter, a mapping catheter including one or more mapping electrodes, and one or more temperature sensors located on the mapping catheter and/or the cryotreatment catheter. The cryotreatment catheter distal tip may be short enough to allow at least one mapping electrode to be positioned proximate the cryoballoon, for example, within 6mm or less from the cryoballoon. Energy, such as radiofrequency energy, may be delivered to one or more mapping electrodes when one or more temperature sensors indicate a temperature of approximately 0 °C or below at one or more mapping electrode in order to thaw or prevent the formation of ice on the mapping electrodes when positioned proximate a cryoballoon during a cryotreatment procedure in order to recapture cardiac signals.
