||PCT/CA2013/000804||MDDT INC.||RAHIMI, Fariborz|
A system for obtaining and analyzing data for overall joint motion from a plurality of joints of a subject experiencing a movement disorder involves a plurality of kinematic sensors configured to be placed on a body of a subject experiencing a movement disorder proximal a plurality of joints of the subject. The kinematic sensors are selected to measure overall joint motion with sufficient degrees of freedom for individual joints so that data collected by the sensors can be deconstructed into multiple degrees of freedom for individual joints and analyzed to provide amplitude of the movements caused by the movement disorder and/or relative contributions from and/or directional bias for each muscle group that may be implicated in the movement of each joint. Such a system permits methods for determining a treatment regimen for treating the movement disorder, whereby the treatment regimen is based on the amplitude of the movements and/or the relative contribution and/or directional bias of each muscle group to the movements caused by the movement disorder.

WO/2015/039207 FOLDABLE TABLE||WO||26.03.2015|
||PCT/CA2013/001045||KHIABANI, Kaveh Valaei||KHIABANI, Kaveh Valaei|
The present invention provides for a foldable table assembly movable between an open and a closed position. The foldable table assembly comprises a base including a base wall surrounding a hollow interior for containing a folding table, the folding table being movable between a closed folded and an open unfolded position and a screw Jack assembly moving the folding table between the folded position inside the hollow interior of the base and unfolded substantially horizontal position removed from the hollow interior wherein operation of the Jack assembly permits the folding and unfolding of the table. The foldable table assembly has a lifting plate engaged with the Jack having a plurality of lifting arms each arm having a first end attached to the lifting plate and a pair of table top segments hingedly connected between a pair of said lifting arms. The pair of table top segments are connected one to another by means of a flexible hinge to allow the pivot point between the pair of table top segments to be located at the surface of the table top segments. In this way the table top surface in the open unfolded position has a smooth finish with no projections rising above the surface.

||PCT/CA2014/000483||MCMASTER UNIVERSITY||QIAO, Shengjun|
A method of determining generation of an activated protease in a biological sample is provided. The method comprises the steps of exposing a biological sample to a substrate for the activated protease, wherein the substrate comprises a detectable label linked to a cleavage sequence for the activated protease by C-terminal and N-terminal spacers that form a beta-sheet, and wherein the detectable label emits a first signal associated with the substrate and a second signal associated with a cleaved product; and determining the generation of the activated protease by measuring the change in the first or second signal over time.

A system and method are provided for analysing and communicating social data. A method performed by a computing device or server system includes obtaining social data and deriving at least two concepts from the social data. A relationship between the at least two concepts is determined. The method also includes composing a new social data object using the relationship and transmitting the new social data object. User feedback associated with new social data object is obtained, and the computing device or server system computes an adjustment command using the user feedback. Executing the adjustment command adjusts a parameter used in the method. After the adjustment command is executed, the method is repeated.
