  • Publication number: 20210267841
    Abstract: A massage device which allows a user to easily and effectively self-administer a neck and/or shoulder massage. The device includes a first post, a second post, a first base, a second base, a crossbar, and a foam roller. The crossbar is connected in between the first post and the second post. Additionally, the foam roller is rotatably mounted onto the crossbar so that the crossbar supports the weight of the user's head and neck while the user performs a foam rolling operation. That is, the foam roller rotates about the crossbar while the user performs the foam rolling operation. The first base and the second base are attached to the first post and the second post and support the massaging device in an orientation that facilitates performing the foam rolling operation.

  • Publication number: 20160279016
    Abstract: A massage device which allows a user to easily and effectively self-administer a neck and/or shoulder massage. The device includes a first crossbar, a first leg assembly, and a second leg assembly. The first crossbar acts as the engagement element. The first leg assembly and the second leg assembly each include a handle, a support bar, and a rocker runner. The handle is collinearly and adjacently connected to the support bar. The rocker runner is adjacently connected to the support bar, opposite the handle, and allows for a rocking motion. The support bar positions and holds the first crossbar and acts as the load-bearing element. The support bar of the first leg assembly is adjacently and perpendicularly connected to the first crossbar. The support bar of the second leg assembly is adjacently and perpendicularly connected to the first crossbar, opposite the support bar of the first leg assembly.

  • Publication number: 20150084757
    Abstract: A method for providing automatic crash management (ACM) is provided. An ACM application is enabled on a mobile device. Data is collected from a plurality of sensors associated with the mobile device. The data from the plurality of sensors is processed with the ACM application. The processed data is monitored with accident logic of the ACM application running on the mobile device to determine whether a crash has been detected. The data from the plurality of sensors is automatically streamed to the off-board server for further analysis upon detection of the crash.

  • Patent number: 8887554
    Abstract: Components of interest are captured on a resin column from a sample of exhaust gas from an operating vehicle. Makeup air is added to the residual exhaust gas flow exiting the resin column at a junction downstream of the resin column. Makeup air flow rate is determined using a laminar flow element and pressure and temperature gauges associated therewith. The sample and the makeup air are drawn together through a blower and the flow rate through the blower is calculated based on differential pressure across the blower and temperature of the gas drawn through the blower. The controller adjusts a proportional control valve in the makeup air line to regulate the sample flow rate, taken as the blower flow rate minus the makeup air flow rate, at a predetermined proportion of the exhaust gas flow rate.

  • Patent number: 7823739
    Abstract: A collapsible shipping container includes a floor, a roof, and a pair of bifolding sidewalls, that collapse accordion style to place the sidewalls and roof in a configuration wherein the roof is collapsed onto the sidewalls, and the sidewalls are collapsed onto the floor. The container further includes a pair of end walls having upper and lower end wall sections. The upper end wall sections may be lowered by activation of a power source to lie on the roof in the collapsed configuration. Collapse and erection of the shipping container may be accomplished with the aid of auxiliary equipment, such as a fork lift.

  • Patent number: 7404544
    Abstract: A torque limiting clutch includes a drive shaft having central rotational axis, a disk-shaped spring member secured to the drive shaft for rotation therewith, and a plate adjacent the spring member and having a plurality of grooves receiving bosses of the spring member. The spring member has a plurality bosses formed at an outer edge of the spring member that each form a generally V-shaped engagement surface. The grooves each form a generally V-shaped engagement surface engaging the bosses. A retaining clip retains the plate relative to the spring member to obtain a predetermined spring pretension. Engagement of the bosses with the grooves causes rotation of the plate upon rotation of the drive shaft when below a predetermined torque limit and deflection of the bosses out of the grooves prevents rotation of the plate upon rotation of the drive shaft when above the predetermine torque.
