  • Patent number: 8329112
    Abstract: The invention relates to a multi-dosing detergent delivery device. In embodiments of the present invention, the device comprises a housing (2) for receiving a cartridge (200). The cartridge (200) has a plurality X of chambers, each accommodating a detergent composition. The device has a lid (3,1100) for receiving water/wash liquor and directing it selectively into a chamber of the cartridge (200) to contact the detergent composition therein and an outlet to allow the detergent loaded wash liquor to exit the device. The device has automatic indexing means (100) for automatic movement of said cartridge (200) relative to said lid (3,1100) so as to cause a neighboring chamber to be in an exposed, ready to be used, position prior to a next washing cycle and features an end stop mechanism (A,B) for preventing actuation of said automatic indexing mechanism (100) subsequent to an Xth washing cycle.

  • Patent number: 8313531
    Abstract: An interlocking reversed hip prosthesis including an acetabular cup being implanted in the acetabular cavity having an acetabular articular ball, firmly attached to the central portion of the cup via Morse taper. The femoral component having a hemispherical cup attached to the neck of the implant via Morse taper in a modular fashion thereby allowing use of several length necks. After implantation of the acetabular cup and the femoral cup, the two members are assembled together for relative movement. The acetabular cup secured by several screws or resorbable fixation studs. During range of motion, the edge of the femoral cup becomes inserted into space located between the acetabular cup and the acetabular ball and becomes restrained thus reducing the likelihood of dislocation during extreme range of motion.

  • Patent number: 8307792
    Abstract: An internal combustion engine has a mechanism, through which movement of a piston can be transferred to a crankshaft, from a first con rod on which the piston is mounted. The mechanism has an oscillating device mounted on a crankcase of the engine for oscillating on a first axis parallel to the crankshaft axis. The oscillating device is connected to a second con rod connected to the crankshaft for relative rotation on a second axis parallel to the first axis, and also to the first con rod for rotation on a third axis parallel to the first and second axes. The oscillating device is connected to the con rods so that the first axis and the crankshaft axis are on opposite sides of the piston axis, to enable adjustment of piston reciprocation.
