  • Patent number: 11412854
    Abstract: A self-stopping mobile chair system comprising: a chair including a base, a joint and a seat coupled to the base via the joint to allow a movement of the seat relative to the base between a fore position and an aft position; a locking mechanism configurable between: an engageable state in which the locking mechanism locks the seat upon the seat being in a rated position between the fore and aft positions, the seat movable toward the rated position to be locked by the locking mechanism, and a disengaged state in which the seat is movable between the fore and aft positions unhindered; and an actuator connected between the seat and the locking mechanism to configure the locking mechanism either in the disengaged state upon the seat bearing a force or in the engageable state absent the force. There is also provided a movement stopping system for a mobile chair.

  • Patent number: 10542787
    Abstract: A helmet assembly includes a face shield and a single, center top mounting arrangement that operatively connects a center top location of the face shield to a center front mount on the helmet. The face shield can be raised and lowered about a pivot axis provided in the mounting arrangement between a tilted up, non-use position and a lowered, deployed position. The mounting arrangement can include a detent and two recesses, wherein the detent engages a first recess at a slightly forwardly displaced position to allow ventilation between the helmet and mandible and the face shield and a second recess at the tilted up, non-use position. The recess and detent engagement can be overcome by easy manual force acting on the face shield to reposition the face shield.
