Tracking object in frames of video data, including receiving a first tracking position associated with the target object in a first frame of a video sequence; identifying, for a second frame of the video sequence, a plurality of representation levels and at least one node for each representation level; determining, by a processor, a second tracking position in the second frame by estimating motion of the target object in the second frame between the first frame and the second frame; determining, at each representation level by the processor, a value for each node based on a conditional property of the node in the second frame; and adjusting, by the processor, the second tracking position based on the values determined for each of the nodes and interactions between at least some of the nodes at different representation levels.

The present invention relates generally to a population of cells genetically modified to produce insulin in a glucose responsive manner and uses thereof. More particularly, the present invention relates to a population of cells genetically modified to produce insulin in response to physiologically relevant levels of glucose and uses thereof. The cells of the present invention are useful in a wide variety of applications, in particular in the context of therapeutic and prophylactic regimes directed to the treatment of diabetes and/or the amelioration of symptoms associated with diabetes, based on the transplantation of the cells of the present invention into mammals requiring treatment. Also facilitated is the design of in vitro based screening systems for testing the therapeutic effectiveness and/or toxicity of potential adjunctive treatment regimes.

A method and apparatus for determining hyperglycaemia. The apparatus includes a sensor and a processor, to determine a QT interval of a patient and any rate of change of the QT interval (dQT/dt), and, output means, to provide an output signal indicative of hyperglycaemia using an algorithm based on the combination of the QT interval and the rate of change of the QT interval. The apparatus may further include further sensor means, to determine a TpTec parameter and the SDNN parameter of a patient, whereby the processor further determines any rate of change of the TpTec parameter (dTpTec/dt) and the SDNN parameter to provide an output signal based on any one or combination of the QT interval, the TpTec parameter, the SDNN parameter and the rate of change of these parameters.

A step climbing attachment suitable for attachment to a wheeled chair is described. The step climbing attachment includes a chassis for mounting one or more ground engaging units, a first and a second ground engaging unit mounted to the chassis, at least one of the first and second ground engaging units adapted to move relative to the other of the first or second ground engaging units and the chassis, the relative movement being between a ground engaging position and a step-engaging support position so that in use at least one of the first and/or second ground engaging units engages a step.
