  • Publication number: 20200191533
    Abstract: A portable target stand system includes a pair of legs, wherein each leg has a body with a front edge and a receiver slot positionally alignable with each other. The system also includes a member having a plate that has a pair of leg slots that slidably receives one of the leg bodies. Each receiver slot slidably receives the member and a cross lap joint is formed between each leg slot and a corresponding one of the receiver slots provided by each leg. The member may consist of a torso target member, a swinger target member, a paper adapter member, or a dummy adapter member.

  • Patent number: 6336920
    Abstract: An incontinence device integrates a fillable bag which, when filled with a gas or liquid, assumes a manually graspable form suitable for use as an applicator. The fillable bag may be adjacent the waste-receiving bag, within the waste-receiving bag, or closure means may be provided enabling the waste-receiving bag itself to function temporarily as the fillable bag. In all embodiments, should the end of the waste-receiving bag include a thermally activated adhesive to improve the integrity of contact to a recipient, the fillable bag may be filled with warm water or other liquid to provide the additional function of causing or at least enhancing the activation of the adhesive. As a further alternative, chemicals may be provided to initiate one or more reactions to generate heat to activate the adhesive and/or to produce a gas to fill the form.

  • Patent number: 5421827
    Abstract: An incontinence device comprising a generally tubular soft latex shape (20) open at both ends. The upper end (24) is smoothly curved and tapered inward (28) to the opening (26) with the latex of minimal thickness and coated on the outside adjacent the opening (26) with a suitable adhesive for contact with the skin about the anal opening. The lower end (22) is partially folded and clipped to permit the device to be affixed with an applicator (30) specifically shaped (32) for the purpose and inserted within the device. The shape and material of the device permits the device to fully stretch and shrink with the anal opening while remaining adhesively affixed to the skin. An extended polyvinyl chloride/urethane mixture of similar elasticity, flexibility and elongation may be substituted for the latex. Because of the very thin wall thickness, the device may be formed as a fiat hollow body (120) which expands in use.

  • Patent number: 5356400
    Abstract: An apparatus for draining a biological substance from a collection bag attached to a patient. The apparatus includes a large bore, thin walled drainage tube which expands to have a substantially circular cross-sectional configuration when a biological substance such as fecal material passes therethrough, and collapses into a substantially flat cross-sectional configuration when the tube is empty. A connector in the form of two adhesively coated, resilient, fluid impervious pieces of sheet material is used to connect the large bore drainage tube to the collection bag.

  • Patent number: 5312384
    Abstract: An incontinence device and applicator therefor. The incontinence device comprises a generally tubular, soft latex bag which tapers to an opening at an upper end thereof. An area adjacent said opening is adapted to be adhesively attached to the tissue overlying the anal sphincter of a patient. The applicator is adapted to fit within the incontinence device. It includes an elongated handle and a head attached thereto, the head being configured to fit against the anal area of the user and bring the attachment of the device to bear against the anal tissue for adhesive attachment thereto. The head includes an oval, ring-shaped bearing surface and means for adjusting the size of the bearing surface so that the device may be used on patients displaying a wide range of anatomical variation. A method of making the incontinence device by vacuum molding is also disclosed.
