  • Patent number: 5351347
    Abstract: A proximity controlled sanitary fitting is provided with a manually operated electric selector switch (6) which is formed the same way as a handle of a conventional manually operated sanitary fitting. The selector switch (6) can be see in various operating positions associated to different operating modes of the sanitary fitting. Among these operating modes there are in particular the following ones: normal detection of a user; deactivation of the non-tactile detection; and opening the fitting regardless of the electronic detection. Thus the electric selector switch can be optically integrated into the design of the sanitary fleeing in a way readily accepted by the public.

  • Patent number: 5342341
    Abstract: Here are disclosed disposable garments such as diaper and training pants and a method for attachment of threadlike continuous elastic members (each comprising a plurality of threadlike elastic elements) around leg-holes thereof so that the elastic members are progressively widened from their longitudinally opposite ends toward their longitudinally middle portions, respectively.The threadlike continuous elastic members 4A, 4B thus attached to the article around the respective leg-holes each comprises rubber threads 4a,4b, 4c. The traverse arrangement support these rubber threads in parallel to one another and forcibly guide them in sine curves with respect to the continuous web 7 so that the portions 4A.sub.1, 4B.sub.1 of the elastic members 4A, 4B to be bonded to the continuous web are bonded thereto. Then, the non-bonded portions 4A2, 4B2 of the elastic members are cut together with the web 7 along boundaries of the individual articles and thereupon contract under their own stretch stresses.

  • Patent number: 5340424
    Abstract: This invention effectively avoids the inconvenience conventially occuring such that, with the pants of prior art being put on the user, the front body is displaced downward under a force exerted thereon as the user's legs move or under a weight of excretions accumulated in the crotch area of the pants, resulting in loosened leg-openings through which leak of excretion may occur.A front body comprising a sheet having elastic stretchability in the transverse direction and a rear body comprising a sheet having no elastic stretchability are bonded to each other with a transverse dimension of the front body in its transversely contracted state being smaller than a transverse dimension of the rear body so that laterally opposite waist sides of the user's body wearing the pants may be covered by a part of the rear body.
