  • Patent number: 11219718
    Abstract: The present invention improves the feeling in use when a finger is hooked on a finger grip. This syringe is provided with a cylinder 22, a syringe needle 24, a finger grip 30, and a plunger rod 32. The finger grip 30 is provided with a cylindrical portion and a pair of finger hook portions. The finger hook portion has an inclined curved surface 70 and an end-side curved surface 72. The inclined curved surface 70 is disposed on a side, of a side surface of the finger hook portion, connected to the cylinder 22. In the inclined curved surface 70, the inclination of a base-side region with respect to the center axis of the cylindrical portion is gentler than the inclination of an end-side region with respect to the center axis of the cylindrical portion. The end-side curved surface 72 is disposed at the boundary between the end of the finger hook portion and the inclined curved surface 70. The end-side curved surface 72 extends along the boundary.

  • Patent number: 9333299
    Abstract: A two-chamber type combined container-syringe includes an outer tube (10) formed in a tubular shape having a uniform inner diameter about an axis (O) thereof throughout the axis direction and provided with a bypass groove (11a) concaved from an inner circumferential surface in a portion in the axis direction, wherein the inner diameter of the outer tube (10) is 6.0 mm or more and 10.0 mm or less, the plurality of bypass grooves are formed in the circumferential direction of the axis at intervals, a cross-sectional area of the bypass groove perpendicular to the axis is 0.13% or more and 0.24% or less of an inner circumferential cross-sectional area of the outer tube perpendicular to the axis, and a depth of the bypass groove concaved from the inner circumferential surface is 2.7% or more and 3.8% or less of the inner diameter of the outer tube. As a result, solution can smoothly flow through the bypass groove, and an amount of solution remaining in the bypass groove can be reduced.

  • Patent number: 8548769
    Abstract: Provided are a device and a method for detecting a stopped state of a vehicle which are capable of precisely detecting the stopped state of the vehicle in order to automate an operation which is externally provided to the stopped vehicle such as an alignment adjusting operation; and an alignment adjusting device to which the device and the method for detecting a stopped state of a vehicle are applied. An arithmetic unit detects, with respect to the left-front tire, for example, an evaluation point of the left-front tire on the basis of the gravity point of a triangle comprising, as vertexes, a point A, a point B, and a point C which are detected by a group of distance sensors; detects an evaluation point of the left-front fender on the basis of a point detected by the group of distance sensors; and detects the stopped state of the vehicle on the basis of the respective evaluation points of the respective tires and the respective evaluation points of the respective fenders.

  • Patent number: 8015901
    Abstract: A clamping mechanism includes a pair of contact portions facing each other which is capable of directly contacting a tie rod hexagonal portion, and an open-close drive mechanism that causes the both contact portions to move away from and approach the tie rod hexagonal portion. By appropriately changing the distance between surfaces of the mutually facing pair of contact portions, the tie rod hexagonal portion will be securely clamped by the pair of contact portions, regardless of the size of the diameter of the tie rod. Then, the tie rod hexagonal portion is rotated to adjust the toe angle, by rotating the clamping mechanism via the rotation drive mechanism.
