Abstract: The process of fabricating a laminate, or series of attached laminates, with internalized matrix of fabric. The uses of such a process are to mask discolored, chipped, jumbled and spaced teeth with an ultra-thin, fabric based laminate which would require virtually no tooth reduction. Additional uses of fabric-encased laminates: missing teeth can be replaced with a chain of fabric laminates and pontics, loose teeth can be splinted with a fabric chain and missing teeth can be provisionally replaced with a pontic laminate attached to fabric, wherein the laminate is constructed of porcelain or composite and the internalized grid is made of fabric, such as polyester.
Abstract: A color coded band, adapted to be mounted on the arm of a patient. The band has a highly visible color code to indicate a certain care alert condition. The band is of synthetic paper and has adhesive on at least one end. The bands may be computer processed by mounting them on a length of pin feed computer paper. Charts for the color coded alert condition arm bands are provided. The charts have a list of care conditions which require early warning. A colored flag is mounted on the chart, one flag being mounted for each condition listed, all of the flags being of different colors. Charts may be mounted in convenient places for persons providing care to patients so that they can interpret corresponding color coded arm bands on the patients.

Abstract: In a camera of the flat bed type having a base, the camera being focused by looking at ground glass back viewing screen supported on a frame which is movable for focusing; means are provided to adjust the frame to simultaneously move the frame forward and backwards, sideways and rotatably for focusing the camera, and means are provided to lock the frame in position when the camera is focused. This invention combines four movements for the back of a folding type or flat bed camera. 1. A rising back, 2. shifting from side to side, 3. lateral swing and 4. tilting toward front or back. All these movements are achieved without using a center pivoting point. Doing it in a continuous working procedure, efficiently and with ease of movement with positive locking. The locking of the vertical movement clamping is accomplished on the sliding member and pivoting on the bottom axis. Means are provided for pivoting from either left or right side with its clamping means when camera is in focus.
