  • Publication number: 20190298559
    Abstract: According to exemplary embodiments of the present disclosure, devices, systems, and methods for pyloric occlusion in an endoscopic procedure may include a first flange and a second flange connected to the first flange by a saddle region having a lumen. The second flange may be proximal to the first flange. The pyloric occlusion device may further include a closure element. The closure element may be configured to occlude a flow of material through the lumen, including across the pylorus when deployed. The closure element may be a closure of the lumen by rotation of one of the first or second flanges about the saddle region relative to the other of the first or second flange.

  • Publication number: 20190210052
    Abstract: A repeatable manufacturing process uses a printer to deposits liquid for each product carried by a substrate to form respective thin films. The liquid is dried, cured or otherwise processed to form from the liquid a permanent layer of each respective product. To perform printing, each newly-introduced substrate is roughly mechanically aligned, with an optical system detecting sub-millimeter misalignment, and with software correcting for misalignment. Rendering of adjusted data is performed such that nozzles are variously assigned dependent on misalignment to deposit droplets in a regulated manner, to ensure precise deposition of liquid for each given area of the substrate. For example, applied to the manufacture of flat panel displays, software ensures that exactly the right amount of liquid is deposited for each “pixel” of the display, to minimize likelihood of visible discrepancies in the resultant display.

  • Publication number: 20190203598
    Abstract: A polymer sheet adapted to attach to a material body such as a ceiling of a geological cavity and provide protective cover. The sheet comprises: a webbing portion defining a plurality of primary openings; and two margin portions extending along opposite edges of the sheet on either side of the webbing portion along a length of the sheet, each margin portion defining a plurality of secondary openings, wherein the margin portions are angled relative to the webbing portion.

  • Patent number: 7918502
    Abstract: An apparatus and method for attaching a child car seat (14) to luggage (12) is provided, including at least one strap (16) extending from an upper region of the luggage for attachment to a top (20) or back (22) portion of the child car seat, or to a separate strap extending from the top or back region of the child car seat. At least one additional strap may also extend from a side, front or bottom portion of such rolling luggage to attach to a side, back or bottom portion of the child car seat. In such embodiment, the at least one additional strap facilitates additional stability of the child car seat as attached to the rolling luggage. Additionally, a flat fabric material or bag (34) may be provided at least partially over the back of the luggage and may be attached to one or more of the various straps.

  • Publication number: 20050027586
    Abstract: A method for generating a financial report indicative of estimated turbine maintenance costs is provided. The method includes receiving, at a database, turbine operational history data and turbine inspection data from a user for a pre-identified turbine, receiving, at the database, turbine replacement part costs, turbine part repair costs, and vendor service costs associated with the pre-identified turbine, inputting a pre-determined turbine operational forecast into the database, analyzing turbine maintenance information including at least one of turbine operational history data, turbine inspection data, replacement part costs, part repair costs, vendor service costs, and turbine operational forecast, and automatically generating a financial report including at least one schedule of turbine maintenance events and costs associated with each event based on the turbine maintenance information analysis.
