  • Publication number: 20210256781
    Abstract: Processes for determining carbon dioxide emission impact. In one process, a carbon dioxide emission impact is determined for each stage of a multi-stage trip.

  • Patent number: 11028896
    Abstract: A rail brake damper includes a cylinder-piston arrangement. A damping device assigned to the piston comprises at least one damping valve having at least one piston channel, which passes through the piston, connecting the two operating chambers of the cylinder, and a closure element assigned to the piston channel. The closure element is spring pre-loaded with the effect of closing the piston channel and is acted on by the hydraulic pressure which prevails in the operating chamber facing away from the piston rod with the effect of opening the damping valve.

  • Publication number: 20200382882
    Abstract: A cerumen protection plug for a hearing device. The cerumen protection plug prevents cerumen from passing along a sound conduit in the hearing device and blocking sound output from a receiver in the hearing device. The cerumen protection plug includes a circular plug containing a cerumen barrier. A positioning handle allows the cerumen barrier to be positioned along the sound conduit, where it prevents cerumen that has entered the sound conduit from traveling along the sound conduit to the receiver or an output port of the receiver.

  • Patent number: 10805747
    Abstract: A method of customizing a component of a hearing device to the ear of a hearing device user. The method includes the steps of providing the hearing device component as a pre-form including a shape-memory material, heating the hearing device component, and bringing the hearing device component in contact with at least a portion of the ear after reaching a pre-set contact temperature such that the hearing device component conforms to the individual shape of the at least a portion of ear. The shape of the hearing device component is fixed by attending a hardening time of the shape-memory material. Therefore, the hearing device component perfectly fits to the geometry of the user's ear canal.
