  • Publication number: 20170130452
    Abstract: A structural assembly for use in building applications is disclosed. The assembly has spaced inner and outer face sheets, as well as one or more intermediate panels positioned between the inner and outer face sheets. The assembly provides an enhanced ability to dissipate blast or projectile impact forces and to carry the forces throughout the assembly, thus maintaining sufficient structural integrity in the building to enable the occupants to evacuate, to enable contents to be evacuated, and to enable reuse of the building itself.

  • Patent number: 8052697
    Abstract: A medical device for clamping the stomach in morbid obesity surgery consists of a silicone frame that is essentially U-shaped, having opposing legs self-hinged to a bight portion interconnecting the legs. The opposing legs have sufficient stiffness to permit limited bending and have inner surfaces that sealingly carry an inflatable balloon which can be selectively inflated or aspirated after the device has been clamped to the stomach to adjust the gastric restriction stoma. A flexible latch member carried by one of the legs has at least one serration which is inserted into a latch cavity of the opposing leg to lock the opposing legs in fixed spaced relationship. Lumens within the legs communicate with a fluid supply source and respective inflatable balloon for selective inflation or aspiration of the inflatable balloons. The medical device for clamping the stomach may be self-adjusting upon distention and contraction of the proximal stomach.

  • Patent number: 7959164
    Abstract: An example roll control device uses differential pressure values, for example, that are conveyed by a motor driven pump to a first actuator associated with a first stabilizer. The differential pressure values are also conveyed from the motor driven pump to a second stabilizer through a proportional valve in one example. In another example, multiple actuators are utilized with each actuator being associated with a separate motor driven pump in communication with a common controller.

  • Publication number: 20110132377
    Abstract: A Kinetic Recliner Bed or Chair apparatus intended for enhancing blood circulation, and lymph and neural fluid flow throughout a person's body. The person is placed supinely in a comfortable and relaxed state on a bed or chair member that is driven, either at the nominal cyclic rate of a human lymph system's normal lymphangion contraction rate divided by 2, or alternately, at the nominal cyclic rate of a human lymph system's normal lymphangion contraction rate, in a cyclic tilting seesaw mode that alternatively raises the person's upper torso and head above his or her lower extremities, and vice-versa.

  • Patent number: 7670122
    Abstract: A gerotor pump includes an outer rotor having a first toothed surface and lobes that extend inwards. An inner rotor is eccentrically aligned relative to the outer rotor and includes a second toothed surface and lobes that extend outwards. Planetary gears are located between the outer rotor and the inner rotor. Each planetary gear has a third toothed surface that intermeshes with the first toothed surface and the second toothed surface.

  • Patent number: 7657054
    Abstract: Foot impression generating apparatus comprising impression platforms including buns of open-cell sponge material bonded to an supporting non-porous skins formed of non-blown sponge material is utilized for making foot impressions by a consumer. The sponge material comprises a blended mixture of elastomeric thermosetting material and low melting temperature thermoplastic material chosen such that the buns and skins are respectively flexible and then become rigid when heated and then cooled above and below the plastic temperature range of the thermoplastic material. The consumer steps into heated impression platforms to form the foot impressions and then they are cooled and “frozen” in place. Next, scanning means are used to create a digital contour map of the foot impressions. Then a digitally controlled milling machine is utilized for forming shoe inserts in conformance with the digital contour map.

  • Patent number: 7513188
    Abstract: A power steering system includes a power cylinder, an accumulator, a reservoir, a pair of valves, and a pair of pressure transducers. The system selectively fluidly couples the accumulator and/or reservoir to the double-acting power cylinder and thereby causes the power steering system to function in the manner of a force-based power steering system.

  • Publication number: 20080264711
    Abstract: A power steering system includes a double-acting power cylinder (16) having a four-way valve (20) for controlling steering direction. An accumulator (26) stores pressurized fluid that is controllably supplied to the four-way valve (20) by an electronically controlled three-way valve (28) based upon an applied torque measured at a steering wheel (12).

  • Publication number: 20080252116
    Abstract: A Kinetic Recliner Chair apparatus intended for use both as a recliner chair and as an apparatus for enhancing blood circulation, and lymph and neural fluid flow throughout a person's body. In order to utilize the apparatus in its therapeutic mode, a person fully reclines a reclining chair member thereof and then activates a controllable motor driven drive mechanism that cyclically tilts the reclining chair member like a seesaw, which action alternatively raises the person's upper torso and head above his or her lower extremities, and vice-versa.
