  • Publication number: 20200391081
    Abstract: A training script device is described that conveniently allows a user to create a training script defining one or more steps of a workout routine, where each step may include an activity, a duration for performing that activity, and an intensity at which the activity is to be performed. Further, one or more steps of the training script can be self-starting in response to performance data detected by sensors of training script device executing the training script. This conveniently frees the athlete from having to continuously monitor the status of his or her workout activities. Still further, the training script device conveniently allows a user to transfer training scripts to other training script devices, so that athletes can share successful training scripts.

  • Patent number: 7838447
    Abstract: A pre-moistened wiper that exhibits good antimicrobial kill at relatively small levels of antimicrobial agent is provided. In one embodiment, for example, the wiper contains a sanitizing formulation that includes between about 0.01% by weight to about 1% by weight of an antimicrobial agent, including a quaternary ammonium compound, and water. The sanitizing formulation is capable of being released from the wiper as a solution such that the quaternary ammonium compound is present within the solution in an amount less than about 2000 parts per million of the solution. The wiper can exhibit a log reduction for E. Coli of at least about 2.

  • Patent number: 7815995
    Abstract: A textured fabric having at least one surface that contains peaks and valleys is provided. Greater than about 90% of the peaks and less than about 10% of the valleys are disposed with a treatment composition, the treatment composition comprising a latex polymer. In one embodiment, for example, the textured fabric is a hydraulically entangled composite fabric formed from a spunbond nonwoven web and pulp fibers. When coated onto the fabric, the treatment composition may form a thin film layer on the fiber surface that prevents fibers or zones of fibers from breaking away from the surface as lint. Further, because the coating is applied only to the peaks, the valleys may remain free of the latex polymer and substantially maintain the absorbency of the uncoated fabric.

  • Patent number: 7588663
    Abstract: A multiple mode headbox is provided including a support surface, two or more chambers, and an adjustable roof. Each chamber includes a plurality of nozzles adapted to optionally supply papermaking fibers to the support surface. The adjustable roof is operably configured to adjust over a range of movement such that it defines a forming zone between the support surface and at least one chamber in a first mode, and between said support surface and at least one different said chamber in a second mode.
