  • Patent number: 9048651
    Abstract: A strain relief and cable retention assembly for retaining a cable to a casing includes an anchor made of a flexible material. An internal bore along an axis of the anchor is sized to fit an outer jacket of the cable. Tabs extend away from the bore along axes perpendicular to the axis of the bore. A plate made of a stiff material extends along the tabs of the anchor. A section of the anchor passes through the plate such that the plate rests flat against the tabs between the tabs and a face of a casing. Reinforcing fibers from the cable are tied around the plate and the tabs, distributing stress from the cable to the plate and casing.

  • Publication number: 20150128347
    Abstract: A bed comprises a deck section having a width and left and right outboard deck edges. Left side and right side wings are movably coupled to the deck section. The bed also includes a left leadscrew receiver mounted on the left wing, a right leadscrew receiver mounted on the right wing, and left and right motor assemblies both mounted on the deck section. A left leadscrew is coupled to the left motor assembly and to the left leadscrew receiver. A right leadscrew is coupled to the right motor assembly and to the right leadscrew receiver. Motor operation is capable of moving the wing to which it is coupled between a deployed position in which the lateral extremity of the wing is outboard of the respective outboard edge of the deck section and a stored position in which the lateral extremity of the wing is inboard of its deployed position.

  • Patent number: 9009895
    Abstract: A bed comprises a deck having at least one section that is orientation adjustable about a laterally extending, longitudinally translatable axis and a mattress assembly including at least one volumetrically adjustable element associated with the orientation adjustable deck section. The volumetrically adjustable element is adapted to change the thickness of a portion of the mattress assembly adjacent to the deck section in a direction nonparallel to the orientation of the section and in response to a change in orientation of the deck section.

  • Publication number: 20140372993
    Abstract: A function in a type system can be overloaded using specified constants. The constant can be can be the result of evaluating an expression to: a string, a number, a Boolean, a pattern or any type of constant. The return type of the function can depend on the specified constant that is passed into the function. The return type of the function can depend on the type of the specified constant that is passed into the function. The type of the parameter that is passed into the function can depend on the value of the constant. The function overloads can be validated to ensure that the constant-based overload is a subtype of a more general overload. A constant can be an expression used at compile time during type checking.

  • Patent number: 8910329
    Abstract: A patient support apparatus includes a frame and seat, thigh, and head sections coupled to the frame. A linkage is coupled to the head, seat, and thigh sections. The linkage has a first mode of operation in which the seat and thigh sections remain substantially parallel to each other as the head section is raised and lowered and the linkage has a second mode of operation in which the thigh section tilts relative to the seat section as the head section is raised and lowered. A handle is movable relative to the head section between a first position in which the linkage is in the first mode of operation and a second position in which the linkage is in the second mode of operation.
