  • Patent number: 8317661
    Abstract: A power ladder for exercising and fitness is disclosed. Embodiments of the power ladder are lightweight and compact, and fold for easy storage and transport. Embodiments include two flexible plastic side rails and a plurality of rungs connected to the side rails at intervals along the side rails. The rungs connect pivotally and slidably to the rails. The rungs are mounted on telescoping legs so that the rungs may be used in a first position adjacent the ground, in a second position above the ground, and in some embodiments, a third position, mounted higher above the ground than the second position. Using the ladder, persons can train for agility, flexibility and plyometrics, and can thus achieve excellent exercising while having fun. One or more persons or even a team may use the ladder. Larger teams may compete using one ladder or more than one of the ladders.

  • Patent number: 8316005
    Abstract: The systems, methods, means, and computer program products disclosed herein provide a framework and tools for creating composite services from the array of services available as distributed, loosely structured, ad hoc, remote programming interfaces on the Internet. The framework includes metaservices for coordinating the execution of multiple services in a composite service, and also provides core services such as database management, security, financial transactions, media conversion, and so forth, to provide greater design latitude in the creation of new composite services from existing Internet content and services. The framework may be deployed to create new services and programming interfaces, or to deploy independent web applications constructed from available services.

  • Patent number: 8252042
    Abstract: Several unique intracardiac pressure vents, placement catheters, methods of placement and methods of treating heart failure are presented. The intracardiac pressure vents presented allow sufficient flow from the left atrium to the right atrium to relieve elevated left atrial pressure and resulting patient symptoms but also limit the amount of flow from the right atrium to the left atrium to minimize the potential for thrombus or other embolic material from entering the arterial circulation. In embodiments, the device comprises a core segment, an annular flange to engage one surface of the atrial septum and two other annular flanges to engage another surface of the atrial septum.
