U.S. Patents Awarded to Inventors in Wisconsin (Jan. 10)

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Targeted News Service Targeted News Service ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 10 -- The following federal patents were awarded to inventors in Wisconsin.

*** ID Insight Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 10 -- ID Insight, Arden Hills, Minn., has been assigned a patent (8,352,281) developed by Robert T. Clark, Somerset, Wis., and Adam Elliott, Lino Lakes, Minn., for a "system, method and computer program product for assessing risk of identity theft." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "In one embodiment, this invention analyzes demographic data that is associated with a specific street address when presented as an address change on an existing account or an address included on a new account application when that address is different from the reference address (e.g., a credit bureau type header data). The old or reference address and the new address, the new account application address or fulfillment address demographic attributes are gathered, analyzed, compared for divergence and scaled to reflect the relative fraud risk." The patent application was filed on April 12, 2010 (12/758,171). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,352,281&OS=8,352,281&RS=8,352,281 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.



*** Rockwell Automation Technologies Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 10 -- Rockwell Automation Technologies, Mayfield Heights, Ohio, has been assigned a patent (8,352,203) developed by Brian J. Seibel, Grafton, Wis., Russel J. Kerkman, Milwaukee, and Carlos Daniel Rodriguez-Valdez, Glendale, Wis., for a "digital implementation of a tracking filter." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Methods and systems for tracking an electronic signal corresponding to an operating frequency of an electronic component are provided. A method may include sampling the signal to determine previous and current time samples of the signal. A frequency of interest in the signal may also be pre-warped to decrease adverse warping effects resulting from processing signals having relatively higher operating frequencies. The previous and current time samples of the signals, along with the pre-warped frequency of interest, may be input into a digital tracking filter. The digital tracking filter may be configured to execute one or more algorithms on the previous and current time samples and the pre-warped frequency of interest to estimate a current operating frequency." The patent application was filed on Nov. 30, 2009 (12/627,400). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,352,203&OS=8,352,203&RS=8,352,203 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.

*** General Electric Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 10 -- General Electric, Schenectady, N.Y., has been assigned a patent (8,352,018) developed by Joel Q. Xue, Germantown, Wis., and G. Ian Rowlandson, Milwaukee, for a "multi-tier system for cardiology and patient monitoring data analysis." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "In a multi-tier patient monitoring data analysis system, an algorithm server is positioned as a middle tier between an acquisition device, such as a cardiograph or patient monitor that can be seen as a lower tier, and a storage device for a database, such as that of a central computer for a hospital or clinic that can be seen as an upper tier. The algorithm server gathers current data from the real time acquisition device and obtains previously stored ECG signal data from the database. The algorithm server contains ECG analysis algorithm(s) and runs one or more algorithms using the current and previously acquired ECG signal data. Analysis algorithms may also be run on the acquisition device. The system provides the rapid, extensive, and thorough ECG analysis that is critical to patient welfare."

*** Smiths Medical ASD Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 10 -- Smiths Medical ASD, Rockland, Mass., has been assigned a patent (8,352,007) developed by four co-inventors for an oximeter device. The co-inventors are Dave Donars, New Berlin, Wis., Robert Rammel, Muskego, Wis., Matthew L. Brown, Waukesha, Wis., and Guy A. Smith, Waukesha, Wis.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "An oximeter has a housing configured to have a cavity defining portion that is adapted to be fitted with covers of various dimensions to effect receptacles of different dimensions for accommodating differently sized sensor of sensor assemblies that are matable to the oximeter for sensing physical attributes of a patient. Each of the covers, once fully fitted to the housing, is fixedly latched thereto unless a force that overcomes the latching is applied to remove the cover. The effected receptacle is adapted to biasedly retain a corresponding sensor placed therein. The holstered sensor therefore would not accidentally fall out or be removed from the receptacle, until the user deliberately applies a force to remove the sensor from the receptacle." The patent application was filed on Nov. 12, 2008 (12/292,093). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,352,007.PN.&OS=PN/8,352,007&RS=PN/8,352,007 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.
