  • Patent number: 8007406
    Abstract: A “Complete Body Fitness Machine” that provides for a muscle building workout as well as a cardiovascular workout for the total body consists generally of an adjustable seat and two arms on either side, which are adjustable in height and have an infinitely and independently variable resistance possible in either clockwise or counterclockwise rotation. The arms are designed to have several types of mechanisms attached, so as to be able to work with a variety of body parts including, but not limited to, hands, arms, legs, feet, torso, neck and shoulders. When the proper attachment is used, the resistance for each direction of rotation of the arm is set, and the exercise is conducted. Depending on the workout desired, the seat and arms could be adjusted to different positions as well as the seat can be free-moving.

  • Patent number: 6609456
    Abstract: A hand held device for compressing used or empty household containers consists generally of a long, straight handle and a small non-slip base. The handle has a hole in the center to receive the top of the container. The handle has rounded points protruding from the bottom, near the hole that receives the container top. As one slowly pushes the handle downward the points push on the structure of the top of the container. This creates points of failure, and allows the container to be crushed downward in a simple, slow, smooth manner, requiring very little downward force. The non-slip base, where the container is placed before compressing, keeps the container from slipping during compression. Before the container is compressed, the cap is loosened to let air out as it compresses. Once it is compressed, the cap is tightened, so the container remains compressed.

  • Patent number: 3948256
    Abstract: A ring made of stiff, smooth material passes through concentric openings on a pair of separable plate members to accommodate the stoma to allow discharge into a disposable container attached to one of the plates. Annular washers around the plate openings and the ring seal against leakage, permit the plates to be quickly and easily separated and permit the appliance to be easily disassembled, if necessary, for cleaning.
