  • Patent number: 8579315
    Abstract: A modular wheelchair assembly is adapted to be reconfigured between a fixed angle of tilt, a dynamically adjustable tilt-in-space configuration with the tilt axis being near the user's knees and a dynamically adjustable tilt-in-space configuration with the tilt axis being near the user's center of gravity. The reconfiguration is achieved by modifying a limited number of selectively removable components of the support assembly or the pivot assembly of the wheelchair.

  • Patent number: 8424896
    Abstract: A telescoping crossbar assembly for a wheelchair comprises an inner tube that is slidable within an outer tube. The head portion of a pass-through fastener bears on the inner tube through a sufficiently large head-side aperture so as to slightly deform the inner tube and to hold the two tubes by friction in mutual engagement.

  • Patent number: 7970943
    Abstract: A system manages information exchanges between components of the system so that information is provided in a format expected by each particular component. In a specific implementation, a translation service provider intercepts information exchanges between client and data sources or data services and translates of converts software identifiers (e.g., UUIDs or GUIDs) as needed so that the client or data source can properly process the data. For example, a client may use GUIDs in a first format, and when information is requested is presented using a GUID in a second format, different from the first, the translation service provider translates a GUID to the first format. The translation service provider may be transparent to the other components of the system.
