  • Patent number: 9949588
    Abstract: Mounting brackets, assemblies, kits, devices, systems and methods for mounting brackets to walls adjacent to shower tile and shower enclosures, with the brackets having rod support ends over the tile or shower enclosure, where the mounting brackets are used as a replacement for a shower curtain tension rod so that non-tension curtain rods can be used, where the brackets securely hold the rod in place without accidental slippage, and the brackets are mounted without causing damage to the shower wall tiles and shower wall enclosure. The bracket includes a base having opposing ends. A semi-circular projection for supporting a shower rod is disposed on one end. A pair of apertures are disposed on the other end. The base is securable to a wall via fasteners insertable through the apertures. The shower rod bracket provides a mounting point for a shower rod and eliminates the need to use a spring-tensioned rod.

  • Patent number: 7653003
    Abstract: An ad hoc network organizes itself to provide communications without need for an a priori designated central control mechanism or base stations. Such self-organization is challenging in a multihop ad hoc network having member nodes that are highly mobile and widely distributed. A Synchronous Collision Resolution (SCR) protocol is well suited to provide efficient medium access control is such networks. SCR is an access protocol that archives high capacity collision free access using a signaling approach that creates a random cellular-like network after each signaling period. In use, the present invention provides quality of service and supports energy conservation for the mobile nodes.

  • Patent number: 7266085
    Abstract: An ad hoc network organizes itself to provide communications without need for an a priori designated central control mechanism or base stations. Such self-organization is challenging in a multihop ad hoc network having member nodes that are highly mobile and widely distributed. A Synchronous Collision Resolution (SCR) protocol and a Node State Routing (NSR) protocol are well suited to provide efficient ad hoc network organization. SCR is an access protocol that achieves high capacity collision free access using a signaling approach that creates a random cellular-like network after each signaling period. NSR is a routing protocol that uses the dissemination of node states to predict link availability and to assign metrics to those links for the creation of optimized routes. In use, the present invention provides quality of service and supports energy conservation for the mobile nodes.

  • Publication number: 20060235334
    Abstract: Catheters, kits, and methods are provided for removing material from a body lumen. The catheters and methods may be used in a variety of body lumens, including but not limited to coronary and other arteries. In general, the catheter has a cutting element that cuts material while the material is engaged by a material capture device on the catheter body. Preferably, the material capture device tensions the material during cutting, which reduces the amount of cutting force required. The material capture device typically follows a path that draws material into the catheter body. Preferably, but not necessarily, the material capture device may be arranged on the catheter body to advance along a path outwardly from the catheter body into the material and then inwardly towards the catheter body to tension the material. The cutting element on the catheter body moves between a first position and a second position to cut the material while in tension.

  • Publication number: 20060197826
    Abstract: The present disclosure includes systems and techniques relating to pulse laser printing. In general, in one implementation, an apparatus includes: a laser operable to produce a pulsed printing beam; an optics assembly operable to focus and direct the pulsed printing beam; and electronics communicatively coupled with the laser and the optics assembly, the electronics being operable to control the laser and the optics assembly to generate power pulses of the pulsed printing beam in synchronization with a series of moves that steer the pulsed printing beam in a non-raster scanning pattern to predefined locations on a material to alter an optical characteristic of the material at the predefined locations, which are arranged to form at least a portion of a symbol. The electronics may deliver the power pulses in synchronization with arrival at the predefined locations, and the electronics may be configured to receive sensed feedback in a closed loop.
