  • Patent number: 9498872
    Abstract: According to one aspect of the application, a tool for driving a fastening element into an underlying surface comprises an energy transmission element for transmitting energy to the fastening element. The energy transmission element is preferably movable between an initial position and a setting position, the energy transmission device being in the initial position before the driving process and in the setting position after the driving process. According to another aspect of the application, the device comprises a mechanical energy accumulator for storing mechanical energy. The energy transmission element is then suitable particularly for transmitting energy from the mechanical energy accumulator to the fastening element.

  • Patent number: 7399258
    Abstract: Treadmills are generally discussed herein with specific discussion to Omni-directional treadmills that incorporate powered offset casters to move a belt in the X, Y, and theta directions. The belt is positioned over a frame and the frame includes a plurality of rollers for allowing the belt to turn about the frame. The powered offset casters can be mounted under the belt or on top of the belt and are controlled by a control system, which controls the translational motion and rotational motion of the belt.
