  • Patent number: 10786088
    Abstract: The invention provides a system for preventing sheet slippage having a sheet retention device configured to at least partially underlie a mattress having a first flat member having a first surface; at least one second flat member attached to the first flat member having a second surface, where the first and second flat members have a closed configuration where the first and second surfaces oppose each other, an open configuration where the first and second surfaces are perpendicular to each other, and an infinite number of positions in between the open and closed configurations; and at least one retaining member in communication with the first surface. The invention also provides a method for using the invented system for preventing sheet slippage.

  • Publication number: 20200289846
    Abstract: The invention provides a method for locating radioactive material implanted in a living body, the method having the steps of implanting a stent into the body, the stent containing the radioactive material; imaging the body to determine a first position of the stent relative to remote points on the body; determining a second position of the stent at a second time later than the time of the implanting step; and measuring the distance between said first position and said second position. Also provided is a system for determining movement of a radiation source implanted in a living body, the device having a radiographic film overlaying a region of the body so as to oppose the radiation source, whereby the film is positioned relative to a reference point on the body; a grid disposed between the film and the body; and a radio-opaque substrate overlaying the film.
