  • Patent number: 10512789
    Abstract: A portable self-contained tooth-whitening device includes a compact housing structured and configured to be held in a fixed position adjacent to a human jaw during use; at least a first array of LEDs disposed in a first plane at a front side of the housing and arranged to deliver blue visible light or near-visible UV light of at least a threshold intensity to substantially all anterior surfaces of anterior maxillary teeth or anterior mandibular teeth of the human jaw, wherein the first array of LEDs forms at least two intersecting arcs, each of which is disposed in the first plane and has its own focal point located outside the device; and at least one battery cell powering the array of LEDs.

  • Patent number: 5669889
    Abstract: A needle shield assembly having a single-use lock includes a needle cannula having a proximal end connected to a hub. A collar is connected to the hub and an elongate rigid needle cover removably engages the hub and covers the needle cannula. An elongate needle shield is hingedly connected to the collar. The needle shield has two side walls defining a longitudinal opening. The needle shield is capable of pivoting from an open position where the needle cannula is exposed, to a closed needle protecting position where the needle cannula is within the longitudinal opening of the needle shield. Structure is provided for preventing the needle shield from being pivoted into the closed needle protecting position until the needle cover is removed. Structure is also provided for automatically locking the needle shield in the closed needle protecting position when the needle shield is pivoted into the closed position.

  • Patent number: 4061956
    Abstract: A battery charger receives direct current power from an external source through a power connector. Switch means receives the power from the power connector and supplies it to a boost circuit which is removably and conductively connected to a battery. A control circuit is connected to receive a battery voltage signal from the battery and a battery temperature signal from a temperature sensor positioned to detect battery temperature. The control circuit determines the state of charge of the battery from the voltage and temperature signals. The control circuit supplies (1) switching signals to the switch means to cause the switch to be conductive, and (2) boosting signals to the boost circuit to cause the boost circuit to charge the battery in accordance with a preselected charging program related to the state of charge of the battery.
