  • Patent number: 9452108
    Abstract: A method of using a device for encouraging adherence to a medication schedule and proper administration technique includes placing the device on a surface. The device includes a body, a timer associated with the body for measuring and displaying an elapsed time since an immediately prior medication dose was administered; and a button on the body that, when depressed relative to the body, resets the timer. The button is sized and shaped for accommodating a medication container used to store or activate the medication. The button and the body are configured for cooperating with the medication container for facilitating mixing of the medication. The method further includes engaging the medication container with the button and resetting the timer.

  • Patent number: 9358181
    Abstract: A reconstitution assembly includes a housing including a lower sleeve and an upper sleeve, including a first container and a second container disposed vertically opposite the first container. A transfer set assembly is disposed within the housing between the first container and the second container. The transfer set assembly includes an upper spike housing and a lower spike housing, with a flow path defined through the upper spike housing and the lower spike housing. The transfer set assembly is configured to access contents of the first container and then upon the activation of a triggering mechanism, create a fluid pathway between the first container and the second container. The triggering mechanism ensures the transfer set assembly sequentially accesses the contents of the first container before accessing the contents of the second container. The disposition of the first container activates the triggering mechanism.

  • Patent number: 9125633
    Abstract: An applicator for mixing and applying multi-component compositions to a work surface, such as two-component surgical sealants. A luer hub sub-assembly having a proximal hub and a distal hub, an elongate, four-lumened cannula, and a spray tip sub-assembly are provided, with interconnections between the sub-assemblies preserving isolation of the fluid components from one another. The tip cap sub-assembly includes registration structure to assure proper alignment between tip cap and tip insert. The end wall of the tip cap includes a spinner region with three feeders or feeder channels leading thereto, the fluid components remaining isolated from one another in two of the feeders or feeder channels, and initiating mixing with one another in a third of the feeders or feeder channels.

  • Patent number: 8672237
    Abstract: An applicator for mixing and applying multi-component compositions to a work surface, such as two-component surgical sealants, while avoiding clogs, preventing cross-contamination of the components until a point of intended mixing at a location within the apparatus immediately upstream of an application opening in a tip cap, decreasing pressure drop along the applicator to facilitate fluid delivery, and increasing efficiency of mixing of the components. A luer hub sub-assembly having a proximal hub and a distal hub, an elongate, four-lumened cannula, and a spray tip sub-assembly are provided, with interconnections between the sub-assemblies preserving isolation of the fluid components from one another. The tip cap sub-assembly includes registration structure to assure proper alignment between tip cap and tip insert.

  • Publication number: 20090084379
    Abstract: An dry powder inhaler is disclosed. The dry powder inhaler is designed so that a user's breath vacuums the dry powder from a well within the housing and directs the powder in a direct path to the user. This design prevents impaction and agglomeration of powder within the inhaler. A flow restrictor may be added within the inhaler to increase turbulence and thus increase dispersion of powder within the air inhaled by the user.

  • Patent number: 5253717
    Abstract: An agricultural implement having main and wing sections which are joined by a folding mechanism. The folding mechanism includes a first pivot connection for allowing generally horizontal pivoting movement of the wing section between a field working position and a folded position. In either position, the wing section remains in essentially the same plane as the main section. The folding mechanism further includes a second pivot connection whereat the sections are joined to each other and which allows independent vertical movement of the wing section relative to the main section. The folding mechanism further includes limit stops for limiting relative movement between the wing and main sections. Moreover, the agricultural implement can include a driver for effecting powered movement of the wing section relative to the main section.

  • Patent number: 4736803
    Abstract: An improved double disk scraper assembly having a pivot post projecting rearwardly from the principal vertical support, a first scraper with a first pivot end on the post and a second scraper with a second pivot end on the first pivot end. The first and second pivot ends are preferably sleeved members. The scrapers are each engaged with a disk under the direct force of a biasing means, preferably a coil spring, between them. The pivot independently within a limited range which serves to keep the biasing means in place. A seed tube passes vertically between the scrapers for seed deposition at a forward position.
