  • Patent number: 10512526
    Abstract: A dental coloring stamp has a transfer pad for transferring a dental coloring solution to a precursor of a dental restoration. The transfer pad is at least partially formed of an open-celled elastic sponge and has a free transfer surface. The cross-section of the transfer pad is greater than a circular area of 10 mm in diameter so that a side of a dental restoration precursor can be stamped and thus colored. The invention helps facilitating the coloring of dental restorations.

  • Publication number: 20190340282
    Abstract: Techniques and solutions are described for facilitating the distribution of tables and table data between a shared container and one or more tenant containers. The tables can include a sharing indicator that can designate a table (or a view on a table) as having a materializable type. Materializable types can initially be deployed in the shared container, and a tenant container can have read access to the table via a view. If the tenant attempts to modify the materializable table, the table can be materialized in the tenant container. Metadata for a materializable table can include materialization instructions. Techniques and solutions are also provided for converting between sharing types, and for updating shared containers or table schemas.

  • Patent number: 10443648
    Abstract: A hinge assembly comprises first and second tape spring elements, wherein each of the spring elements is configured to connect a first element of a space structure to a second element of the space structure. Each of the first and the second tape spring elements is movable from a folded state into an unfolded state by releasing stored strain energy, to deploy the first and the second element of the space structure. The first tape spring element is connected to a first direct current source and configured to conduct direct current of a first polarity supplied to the first tape spring element from the first direct current source. The second tape spring element is connected to a second direct current source and configured to conduct direct current of a second polarity, opposite to the first polarity, supplied to the second tape spring element from the second direct current source.

  • Patent number: 10426907
    Abstract: A method and a system control a drug dosing device (1) for administering a drug to a patient (19). The quantity (c0) of the drug administered from the drug dosing device (1) is determined or calculated. The concentration of the drug in the gas exhaled by the patient (19) is measured as a first patient value (c1M). A simulation calculation is carried out, in which a second patient value (cp) is calculated from the administered quantity of the drug (I), taking into account a parameter (k10). A simulated first patient value (c1?) is calculated in the simulation calculation, taking into account the parameter (k10). A comparison of the simulated first patient value (c1?) to the measured first patient value (c1M) is carried out. The parameter (k10) is adapted on the basis of the comparison. The calculated second patient value (cp) is used to generate a control signal (S).
