A titanium based, ceramic reinforced alloy ingot for use in producing medical implants. An ingot is formed from an alloy having comprising from about 5 to about 35 wt. % niobium, from about 0.5 to about 3.5 wt. % A silicon, and from about 61.5 to about 94.5 wt. % of titanium. The alloy has a hexagonal crystal lattice a phase of from about 20 vol % to about 70 vol %, and a cubic body centered 13 crystal lattice phase of from about 30 vol. % to about 80 vol. %. The ingot has an ultimate tensile strength of about 940 MPa or more, and a Youngs modulus of about 150 GPa or less. A molten substantially uniform admixture of a niobium, silicon, and titanium alloy is formed, cast into a shape, and cooled into an ingot. The ingot may then be formed into a medical implant and optionally annealed.

An activity tracking device has a display screen, a data store, a main processor communicatively coupled with the data store, a device profile configuration stored in the data store, and a user profile configuration stored in the data store. The device profile configuration has a device identifier, processor identifiers, and device statuses. The user profile configuration has a user identifier, and a minimum user activity parameter. The minimum user activity parameter is determined based on one or more historical activity parameters resulting from actual user activity as tracked by the activity tracking device, stored in the data store, and configured in the user profile configuration.

The present invention provides methods of and systems for predicting performance of a mobile application. A first mobile application is installed on a first plurality of wireless mobile devices. Operational data resulting from operating the first mobile application on the first plurality of mobile devices is collected. A second mobile application is installed on a second plurality of mobile devices. Test data resulting from operating the second the mobile application on the second plurality of mobile devices is collected. The performance of the second mobile application is predicted using the operational data and the test data for combinations of mobile device configuration and wireless network connection type not represented by the second plurality of mobile devices.

The Mobile Pulse System makes use of a client application which is installed in each mobile device of a customer to obtain dynamic measurements of the service that is provided to the mobile device by a wireless service provider. These client applications perform frequent tests to determine the level of service that they are presently receiving, which test results are transmitted to the Mobile Pulse System server for compilation and analysis. As a result of the number and diversity of these tests, the server can accurately map the level of service that is being provided by the wireless service provider to a customer. The server can portray the level of service as a function of the type of mobile device used by the customer, specific locations within the service area, time of day, type of communications, and other such relevant parameters.

A biocompatible, implantable electrode for electrically active medical devices. The implantable medical electrode has a surface geometry which optimizes the electrical performance of the electrode, while mitigating the undesirable effects associated with prior art porous surfaces. The electrode has an optimized surface topography for improved electrical performance. Such a electrode is suitable for devices which may be permanently implanted in the human body as stimulation electrodes, such as pacemakers, or as sensors of medical conditions. Such is achieved by the application of ultrafast high energy pulses to the surface of a solid, monolithic electrode material for the purpose of increasing the surface area and thereby decreasing its after-potential polarization.
