  • Publication number: 20230407164
    Abstract: A system and method for manufacturing and using a water-based friction reducer. The anionic water-based friction reducer is environmentally friendly. It results in long term stability with no separation or solid sediments. It is also less expensive than oil-based friction reducing liquids. The water-based friction reducing liquid has water, a suspension polymer, an inorganic salt, an amide, and a dispersant. The water-based friction reducing liquid can replace oil-based friction reducing liquids.

  • Patent number: 11115692
    Abstract: The systems and methods are directed towards delivery of third party content onto a user device having a first party portal. The first party portal service facilitates the user viewing of third party content on the user device. In particular, the first party portal service retrieves third party content (e.g., video content streams) from third party content providers and provides the third party content in a format (i.e. channels) that allows users to easily view different types of content. Furthermore, the first party portal service facilitates the user in viewing the third party content alongside other existing channels available to cable television and streaming media/video on demand content.

  • Publication number: 20100031850
    Abstract: A tackifier solution comprising a pale, highly hydrogenated non-toxic rosin and a suitable, non-toxic solvent is described for use in improving gripping contact between a user and a grip-able object. The grip-able object is preferably a sports object or sporting object and application of the solution to the hand(s) or glove(s) of the user or to the gripping surface of the object results in improved gripping control and power transfer compared to an untreated hand, glove or surface.

  • Patent number: 4509511
    Abstract: In high tibial osteotomy a cross-shaped gauge having downwardly-depending side arms is positioned toward the end of the tibia, with the depending arms adjacent the arcuate path of the proposed saw cut. The cross-shaped gauge establishes a first indicia between said depending arms for positioning the arcuate axis of a semi-cylindrical saw, and a second indicia proximate the upper end of the longitudinal arm of the gauge for locating the saw arc. A saw blade of correct radius is then selected. The first indicia established by the gauge positions a first hole drilled through the bone for receiving a guide pin or rod, and the second indicia locates a second hole on the saw line for receiving a depth gauge. An arm on the depth gauge is aligned with a plurality of spacers placed on the aforementioned pin or rod, and the pin or rod is received along a cylindrical bore in the saw. When the saw is operated, the spacers arrest movement of the saw blade when it has passed through the bone.

  • Patent number: 4103683
    Abstract: A surgical appliance for stabilizing a fractured thighbone is shown having a femoral nail for insertion in the medullary canal and a crosspiece supported at one end in a slot that extends longitudinally lengthwise in the femoral nail, the other end of the crosspiece being bedded in the femoral head. The crosspiece is formed as a flat, spirally shaped element that slides through the slot in the femoral nail when it is seated in the medullary canal and the fracture has been reduced, the leading end of the crosspiece being driven through the neck and into the femoral head. The assembled nail and crosspiece arrangement provides a rigid elongated cross sectional area of the crosspiece supported in the slot in the femoral nail and a flat leading end that serves as a bearing surface in the femoral head that is turned at about a right angle with respect to the slot in the nail whereby to minimize cutting out of the leading end of the crosspiece through the wall of the femoral head.
