  • Publication number: 20130166321
    Abstract: A system is provided which provides functionality for doctors and staff to remotely electronically download a “virtual sample cabinet” software program from a central server onto their desktop computers or mobile technology devices to allow them to centrally search, review product information and insurance coverage, print or electronically send prescription drug sample vouchers and co-pay savings coupons to selected pharmacies. This eliminates the need for physician offices to manage and house physical drug samples, as well as offers a more convenient and efficient way to allocate, dispense and monitor needed drug samples and coupons for savings to their patients. Additionally, the system helps patients to enroll into further savings on refills for their on-going medications through automatically scheduled coupons that are emailed (or mailed) to the patients thereby promoting more affordable compliance to their prescribed therapies.

  • Patent number: 5863063
    Abstract: A vehicle seat assembly includes a seat backframe and a foam cushion positioned adjacent the backframe. A trim cover is secured over the foam cushion and includes first and second edge portions sewn together along a seam. A side airbag module is secured to the backframe for airbag deployment through the seam. An airbag guide chute is secured to the side airbag module and includes first and second end portions secured to the first and second edge portions, respectively, of the trim cover. The chute is sufficiently flexible and strong to guide the deploying airbag through the seam, thereby preventing fragmentation of the foam and destruction of the trim cover material.
