  • Patent number: 6203327
    Abstract: A toilet training system, using a board having a pre-printed path having a path beginning and a path end. The path is made up of step spaces and reward goal spaces. Initially, the parent and child select a reward type, and write the reward type in one of the reward spaces. When the child successfully uses the toilet, one of the step spaces is marked, providing visual indication to the child that they are progressing toward one of the reward spaces, and the reward symbolized thereby. When a child fails to successfully use the toilet, the last marked step space is erased to provide the child with a gentle reminder about the set back in toilet training. Once the step space immediately preceding that reward space has been reached by virtue of successful uses of the toilet, the child is rewarded with the previously chosen reward.

Hands within each of these categories are superior if they have a lower highest card. If the highest cards are tied, then the second highest cards are compared, and so on. Each player attempts to beat the banker/player's hand.

  • Patent number: 6200551
    Abstract: A treatment for xerostomia, employing a composition having the active ingredient of carbamide peroxide. The carbamide peroxide compound contains urea and hydrogen peroxide. The hydrogen peroxide remains stable until the carbamide peroxide is applied to the mouth and contacts the water inherent therein. On contact, the hydrogen peroxide is freed from the urea, allowing the hydrogen peroxide to react within the mouth. The resulting chemical and mechanical reaction stimulates saliva within the mouth and thereby relieves the symptoms of xerostomia.

  • Patent number: 6198398
    Abstract: A moisture monitoring device, for use in monitoring the soil moisture level of a potted plant, comprising a tubular housing having a proximal end and a distal end. A moisture sensor is located at the distal end, which is ordinarily submerged within the soil of the potted plant. An indicating LED is located at the proximal end, which is normally visible above the soil of the potted plant. A blinker circuit is located within the housing and is capable of controlling illumination of the indicating LED. The moisture sensor modulates the blinker circuit such that as the soil moisture level decreases, the blinker circuit causes the indicating LED to flash more rapidly.
