  • Patent number: 10743926
    Abstract: An osteo-implant including two end portions, at least one middle structure, and a plurality of connection portions is provided. The middle structure is disposed between the two end portions and includes a plurality of middle portions. The middle portions are connected to the two end portions through the connection portions. When the two end portions are moved relatively along an axial direction of the osteo-implant, the two end portions drive the middle portions to push with each other and have displacements along a radial direction of the osteo-implant through the connection portions, such that an outer diameter of the osteo-implant is increased by the middle portions.

  • Publication number: 20110142754
    Abstract: An one-off and adjustment method of hydrogen releasing from chemical hydride. The “one/off” of hydrogen release is controlled by the “contact/non-contact” procedures between the reactants. First, at least a hydride powder, a catalyst powder and a water-containing reactant are provided, and at least any two of three are mixed to form a mixture. Hydrogen gas is generated by adjusting a contact area between the mixture and the remaining one. The hydrogen-releasing reaction is terminated when a non-contacting state between the mixture and the remaining one occurs. Alternatively, an inhibitor or an inhibiting method could be used for suppressing or terminating the hydrogen-releasing reaction. The hydrogen-releasing rate could be controlled and adjusted by the extent of suppression.

  • Publication number: 20110143240
    Abstract: A hydrogen generation system comprising solid hydrogen fuel, a liquid absorbent material, and a phase-change material is provided. When the liquid (usually water, alcohol, or aqueous solution of alcohol, aqueous solution of salt or aqueous solution of acid) in the absorbent material contacts with the solid hydrogen fuel, the solid hydrogen fuel will react with the liquid to release hydrogen and generate heat. The heat as generated will accumulate to increase the reaction temperature, and then boost the hydrogen-releasing rate. The phase-change material is adjacent to the solid hydrogen fuel for absorbing and storing the reaction heat, so as to stabilize the reaction temperature. Therefore, the hydrogen-releasing rate is kept as constant to achieve a steady hydrogen flow.
