  • Publication number: 20200046894
    Abstract: An engagement mechanism associated with a reciprocally movable piston of a fluid injector is configured for releasably engaging an engagement portion at a proximal end of a rolling diaphragm syringe having a flexible sidewall configured for rolling upon itself when acted upon by the piston. The engagement mechanism has a plurality of engagement elements reversibly and pivotally movable about a pivot pin relative to the engagement portion of the syringe between a first position, where the plurality of engagement elements are disengaged from the engagement portion of the syringe, and a second position, where the plurality of engagement elements are pivotally movable about the pivot pin in a radially inward direction to engage with the engagement portion of the syringe. The engagement mechanism further has a drive mechanism for moving the plurality of engagement elements between the first position and the second position.

  • Patent number: 6820881
    Abstract: A brake assembly affixed to a skateboard. A brake drum is held to an inner surface of one of the wheels of the skateboard and has an outwardly facing braking surface. A brake pad is held between the underside of the board and the outwardly facing braking surface. A brake pedal extends through an opening in the skateboard. When the brake pedal is depressed, the brake pad moves downwardly and contacts the outwardly facing braking surface, thereby slowing the wheel to which the brake drum is affixed.
