  • Publication number: 20060179564
    Abstract: The present invention provides an improved drain assembly having a drain stopper assembly in operational communication with an actuation assembly. The drain stopper assembly includes an elongate one-piece housing with a longitudinal body coextensive with proximate and distal extents of the housing and defining a lumen therein. A flange portion at the proximate extent has a fluid egress for delivery of fluids from a sanitary vessel to the housing lumen. The housing body has an inner circumferential surface of predetermined inner diameter and an outer circumferential surface of predetermined outer diameter. A linearly reciprocable drain stopper is provided that has a closure head proximate which an elongate shaft depends. The stopper reciprocates between a fully closed position, wherein the closure head obstructs the fluid egress, and a fully open position, wherein the fluid egress remains unobstructed.

  • Patent number: 4574787
    Abstract: An acupressure apparatus for applying vibrational pressure evenly to a plurality of preselected points on a shaded portion of a living body such as upon the face thereof includes a housing and a flexible membrane secured to the housing to form an enclosed chamber between the housing and the flexible membrane for containing therein a liquid. A plurality of protrusions are carried on the flexible membrane and, when the housing is placed adjacent to the shaped portion of the living body, the plurality of protrusions contact preselected acupuncture points. The fluid is excited by vibrational energy such that this energy is transferred to the plurality of protrusions evenly so that the protrusions exert vibrational pressure on the preselected acupressure points. The fluid can be heated if desired.
