WO/2017/007450 INTEGRATED PATIENT PLATFORM||WO||12.01.2017|
||PCT/US2015/039258||KONA MEDICAL, INC.||SABAT, Arash|
An integrated patient platform system and method for performing medical procedures below a patient's body is disclosed. In some embodiments, a superior level surface of an integrated patient platform is configured to support a patient, lying in a prone or supine position, and an inferior level surface of the integrated patient platform is configured to support one or more medical procedure components. The superior level surface includes an aperture disposed therethrough. At least a portion of the aperture forms an examination window that is adjustable in size and position and configured to receive a portion of a patient over or in the examination window. A medical procedure component may be positioned on the inferior level surface to contact or otherwise interface with the portion of the patient positioned over or in the examination window.

||PCT/US2015/039301||LANDMARK GRAPHICS CORPORATION||XU, Zitao|
A consecutive set of data points, P1, P2, P3, and P4, is selected. A first line is created through P1 and P3. A first tangent vector originating at P2, parallel to the first line, is created. A second line through P2 and P4 is created. A second tangent vector through P3 is created. The second tangent vector is parallel to the second line. A baseline through P2 and P3 is created. A Bezier curve between P2 and P3 is created, wherein the Bezier curve has a degree. The degree of the Bezier curve is determined based on a comparison of the first tangent vector, the second tangent vector, and the baseline.
