Abstract: A hypodermic injection system particularly for use in mass immunizations having a handpiece with a grasping mechanism for holding ampules filled with injectate, a plunger for driving into the ampule to discharge the injectate in an injection process, an injection spring mechanism for driving the plunger, a motor and/or manual mechanism for cocking the injection spring mechanism, and an ampule ejection mechanism for ejecting ampules after use under control of a release mechanism. Ampules can be loaded, used and ejected without contact by the user of the system or the patient being injected. Also disclosed are a filling station for filling ampules through their injection orifices, and an arming device for setting the injection spring. Ampules are disclosed having a piston which is drivable towards an orifice to discharge injectate through the orifice. Ampules are also disclosed having enlarged proximal portions for easy grasping by the grasping mechanism of the injector.

Abstract: An absorbable multifilament draw-textured yarn having a bulky structure, and a manufacturing method and medical use thereof The absorbable multifilament draw-textured yarn is obtained by draw-texturing a multifilament made of an absorbable polymer and has bulkiness and a superior soft touch, which are the characteristics of draw-textured yarns. As a result of partially imparting a bulkiness of 150-1000% to the multifilament draw-textured yarn, it is possible to culture cells in the bulky structure, and the multifilament draw-textured yarn is suitable for cell delivery or drug delivery.

Abstract: A non-reclosable package for products which are prejudicial to health, such as pharmaceutical products. The package comprises a first packaging material element and a second packaging material element. The two packaging material elements are arranged on top of each other. The package has at least one first surface section, at the margin or margins of which the two packaging material elements are releasably connected with each other. At least one cavity, which is enclosed on all sides and receives the product to be packaged, is formed between the two packaging material elements. The package has at least one second surface section lying outside or adjoining the first surface section, and at the margin or margins of which the two packaging material elements are releasably connected with each other. At least one of the two packaging material elements has at least one structure extending within the second surface section and enables the packaging material element(s) to be torn.
Abstract: A transdermal therapeutic system for administering lipophilic, poorly water-soluble and/or sparingly skin-permeable pharmaceutical active substances. The active substance is present in a multi-component enhancer system consisting of 4 components and each component of the multi-component enhancer system is selected from a different one of the substance groups: a) terpenes, b) cyclic glucitol ethers, c) medium-chain triglycerides of capric and caprylic acid and/or of linoleic acid; and d) longer-chain alcohols having a chain length of 8 or more carbon atoms.

Abstract: A system and method of preparing medical care instructions for an individual in an emergency situation. The system and method includes obtaining patient information, providing a mechanism to educate the individual on medical and legal terms and procedures, to create medical care instructions, applying the patient information to applicable legal and medical standards and providing a mechanism for updating and maintaining the medical care instructions. The system and method further includes storing the medical care instructions in electronic format, such as on a central computerized database, and allowing immediate and secure access to the stored medical care instructions by medical personnel. The stored medical care instructions may also be outputted when necessary.
Abstract: A composite fiber and resin reinforcement for strength members for use in the composite wood industry. The composite fiber and resin reinforcement is a fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composite comprising a thermoset polyurethane resin matrix and a plurality of fibers. Typical uses will be as a reinforcing material for wood laminates, such as wood support beams (glulam), truck floors and truss fabrication.
Abstract: A coplanarly joined print carrier composed of at least two laminar partial print carriers. One of the partial print carriers contains a paper layer. The paper layer of one partial print carrier is attenuated in thickness along an edge strip by removing a partial layer. The other partial print carrier has a lesser thickness along one edge strip than elsewhere. The two partial print carriers are bonded together along their two edge strips. A method suitable for making such a print carrier is also provided.
Abstract: A method for controlling the loading and unloading of machine tools where the tools from a magazine are first taken over into an intermediate storage station or provision area and from there are supplied to the machine tool. The tools are inserted into the machine tool using a changing apparatus for transfer to the machine tool. The magazine and the machine tool are each provided with a CNC controller and a PLC controller, and these components are adjusted by a separate controller. The magazine and the machine tool can each be provided with a separate CNC controller and PLC controller or a common CNC controller and PLC controller. Multichannel controllers, preferably dual-channel controllers, can also be used.
Abstract: A flexible, extruded plastic wall structure with a hollow core is presented along with a method of making the same. The wall structure has an overall flat back wall, an overall front wall and at least one support wall extending between and confined to the interior surfaces of the overall back wall and the overall front wall; the overall back wall, the overall front wall and the at least one support wall having a generally uniform thickness and defining at least two defined spaces. The wall structure includes sections, where the rear wall of each section is flat from the bottom of the wall structure to the top of the wall structure. The hollow wall structure has a front wall having vertically disposed sections with different contours. The method includes using extrusion die for heating and extruding plastics using a multi-functional insert within the die and air pressure to create a hollow core in the wall structure.
Abstract: In a printing carrier for transferring confidential information with a transparent film layer onto the front side of which the confidential information can be printed and wherein a concealing means, which considerably complicates the capability to identify the confidential information on the film layer is present behind the film layer, provision is made according to the invention for the film layer to carry on the front side at least one structure imprint, which does not add to the confidential information and which improves the effect of the concealing means due to its irregular area coverage.
