Abstract: A horseshoe of molded composition having a sole and walls which substantially conform to the shape of a horse's hoof, the shoe is generally slipper-shaped with the front wall being high enough to cover a substantial area of the front wall of the hoof, and the rear wall is limited in height to avoid interference with the cartilage heel of the hoof, the top edge of the side walls slope downward from the upper edge of the front wall to upper edge of the rear wall, at least one reinforcing protuberance on each side wall for admitting self-threading screws for anchoring the horse boot to the side wall of the horse's hoof.
Abstract: An improved horseshoe of molded composition having a tread portion shaped to cover the entire bottom of a horse's hoof and a flexible upwardly extending envelope portion shaped to conform to the walls of a horse's hoof and having a pair of triangular folds in the front portion to provide contractile flexibility, and an adjustable tensioning member being a flexible cable which is fastened at its ends to the front portion and which loops back on both sides of the horseshoe to engage sleeves secured the opposed surfaces of brackets affixed to the inside of the side walls of the horseshoe, and over-center tensioning means secured to the front part of the horseshoe for engagement with the flexible cable for snugging the shoe securely to the horse's hoof, the brackets also having inwardly downwardly slanting projecting barbs for non-slipping engagement with the side walls of the horse's hoof when the shoe is snugged on the horse's hoof.
Abstract: A self-contained apparatus which facilitates intramuscular or subcutaneous injection of medications is disclosed herein. All components normally required for such injections, i.e., antiseptic, antiseptic applicator, hypodermic needle of appropriate length and gauge, and unit dose of injectable medication are maintained under sterile conditions within subject invention. The apparatus, in a preferred embodiment, contains a single compressed gas cartridge which when ruptured provides power to: (1) sever retention shear tabs of a slidable injection assembly, (2) propel said slidable injection assembly from a storage position to an operating position, (3) couple one end of a double-ended hypodermic needle with the unit dose of medication, (4) insert the other end of said double-ended hypodermic needle into tissues, (5) automatically effect controlled aspiration, (6) expel the medication into tissues of the injection site, and (7) indicate the site of injection as well as the type of medication used.
Abstract: A set of golf clubs in which all the clubs fall into two classes, namely irons and woods, and in which at least all of the clubs in a class have equal shaft length, equal lie angle, equal swing weight and equal total weight. Both irons and woods could be so constructed as to have these equal parameters.
Abstract: An apparatus for parenteral administration of medications is disclosed herein. The apparatus, in a preferred embodiment, is completely self-contained, i.e., all components normally required for intramuscular injection including antiseptic and antiseptic applicator for disinfection of the injection site, hypodermic needle, unit dose of injectable medication and means of automatically effecting injection of said unit dose are contained within the subject invention. An injection method is also described herein.
Abstract: An apparatus for intramuscular or subcutaneous injection of medications featuring automatic aspiration capability is disclosed herein. In a preferred embodiment the apparatus is completely self-contained, i.e., all components required for injection including antiseptic, antiseptic applicator, sterile needle of appropriate gauge and length, sterile medication in unit dose form, means of automatically inserting the hypodermic needle in tissues of the injection site, unique means of automatic aspiration, and means of automatically injecting said unit dose are contained within the subject invention. An injection method and a method for automatic aspiration are also disclosed herein.
Abstract: A solar heated building of generally hemispherical shape which supports on its surface solar heat collectors. The solar heat collectors are in the shape of spherical sectors and cover an arcuate area defined by the receipt of usable solar heat energy; consideration being given to the diurnal and seasonal positions of the sun. Heat collecting fluid is passed in thermal contact with the solar heat collectors and is in circulation with a heat storage reservoir. Air is passed in thermal contact with the solar heat collector to prevent overheating when the heat collecting fluid is cut off or to provide hot air when the heat storage reservoir is fully heated or when the solar heat collector is warmer than ambient but not hot enough to supply heat to the heat storage reservoir. The solar heat collectors are segregated by the heat collecting fluid circulation system piping into discrete arrays each covering about 15.degree.
