  • Publication number: 20120179015
    Abstract: A telemetered characteristic monitor system includes a remotely located data receiving device, a sensor for producing signal indicative of a characteristic of a user, and a transmitter device. The transmitter device includes a housing, a sensor connector, a processor, and a transmitter. The transmitter receives the signals from the sensor and wirelessly transmits the processed signals to the remotely located data receiving device. The processor coupled to the sensor processes the signals from the sensor for transmission to the remotely located data receiving device. The data receiving device may be a characteristic monitor, a data receiver that provides data to another device, an RF programmer for a medical device, a medication delivery device (such as an infusion pump), or the like.

  • Patent number: 6804911
    Abstract: A trap capable of harvesting bait fish in open water or in ponds. In one embodiment a wire mesh cage having capture gates using longitudinal bores and angled rods, each sized to admit desired bait fish but exclude predatory fish. A bait box is provided to hold bait to attract the desired fish. The mesh construction of the cage permits free flow of water currents and visibility of the bait in the bait box. The mesh can also be sized, to provide size selection, by permitting the ready escape of immature and smaller bait fish.

  • Patent number: 5887924
    Abstract: A cargo hook for releasably carrying a load includes a support frame, a load support carried by the frame, and a latch. The load support has a closed condition for securing the load and an open condition for permitting release of the load. The latch is for releasably latching the load support in the closed condition and includes a toggle linkage having a first end pivotally connected to the load support, a second end pivotally connected to the frame, and an articulation joint between the ends. Further, the latch includes a mechanism for toggling the toggle linkage between first and second toggle positions, and a catch moveable between a latched position for holding the toggle linkage in the first toggle position and an unlatched position for permitting the toggle linkage to toggle between the first and second toggle positions.

  • Patent number: 4998763
    Abstract: A cargo hook for releasably carrying a load includes a support frame, a load beam and latching mechanism for releasably engaging the beam in a load secured position. The latching mechanism includes a contact roller carried by the beam and an interference shaft rotatably mounted to the frame. In the load secured position, the roller abuts the interference shaft. Load release occurs when the interference shaft is rotated to a position which permits the load beam to pivot downwardly past the shaft.
