  • Publication number: 20230062025
    Abstract: A louvre window having: a frame, the frame having a head, a sill and at least two jambs; a drive bar located in one or both of the jambs that is movable by a handle; a plurality of blades located within the frame and connected to the drive bar by a pivot drive connector, such that movement of the drive bar urges the blades to pivot, each blade having: a first windowpane attached to the blade; and a second windowpane attached to the blade, wherein operation of the handle causes movement of the blades between an open position and a closed position, wherein in the open position the first windowpanes are aligned to form a barrier against airflow and the second windowpanes are aligned to form a barrier against airflow and in the closed position the first windowpanes are pivoted out of alignment to allow airflow and the second windowpanes are pivoted out of alignment to allow airflow.

  • Publication number: 20220395426
    Abstract: A sexual aid device for simulating the force-response characteristics of an erect penis is disclosed. The sexual aid device provides realistic posterior and anterior force-response characteristics, which stimulate a partner by providing posterior and anterior forces that are experienced inside of and at the egress of an orifice of the partner. Such realistic posterior and anterior force-response characteristics include pressing back and forth in a compressive and/or prying motion against and into many areas of a partner's orifice whereby sexual pleasure-producing nerve endings and/or bundles are stimulated.

  • Publication number: 20140024931
    Abstract: In part, the invention relates to systems, methods, and devices that store and retrieve information associated with an imaging probe such as an ultrasound probe, an optical coherence tomography probe, a multimodal probe and other probes. The information that is stored relates to one or more measurable properties for a specific imaging probe. Thus, when each probe is manufactured there can be variations in its length, brightness, angular alignment of its constituent elements, and various other probe specific measurements. In turn, these measurements can be used to calibrate or otherwise use a given probe with a system that collects, stores, or otherwise processes information collected using each probe.

  • Publication number: 20080037800
    Abstract: An electronic stethoscope having several modes of operation to process acoustic signals to provide filtered signals useful for diagnosis. In one mode of operation the stethoscope substantially provides only acoustic signals generated by biological activity of the heart. In another mode of operation, the acoustic stethoscope substantially provides only acoustic signals generated by biological activity of the lungs. In another mode of operation, the electronic stethoscope disproportionately amplifies abnormal heart sounds and normal heart sounds to enhance diagnosis of heart abnormalities. The electronic stethoscope is operated in a manner similar to a conventional acoustic stethoscope and has similar spectral characteristics, thus allowing a user with acoustic stethoscope experience to easily use the electronic stethoscope.
