  • Patent number: 10814106
    Abstract: An IV catheter system may have a catheter component and a needle component. The catheter component may have a catheter hub, a cannula extending distally from the catheter hub, and a push feature extending outward from the catheter hub. The push feature may have an outer surface that receives contact from a digit to move the IV catheter system from an insertion configuration, in which the needle is within the cannula, to a fluid delivery configuration, in which the needle is outside the catheter hub. The needle component may have a needle hub and a needle extending distally from the needle hub along an axis. The push feature may be formed of a flexible material that causes the push feature, in response to pressure exerted on the outer surface by a dressing securing the catheter component to a patient, to deflect the outer surface toward the cannula axis.

  • Publication number: 20200282132
    Abstract: A medical delivery device is provided for delivering a medicinal substance into a user's body. A foldable hub has a left wing and a right wing, where the hub is attached at one end to a tube, and at an opposite end to a needle. At least one first rib is disposed on the left wing and at least one second rib is disposed on the right wing. When the wings are folded back away from the needle and pinched together, the first and second ribs prevent twisting and/or sliding of the wings relative to each other during an insertion of the needle into a user's skin, thereby preventing a breakage of the needle due to undesirable movement of the wings.

  • Publication number: 20200248085
    Abstract: Pre-ground plastics of small particle size not more than 2 mm are co-fed into a solid fossil fuel fed entrained flow partial oxidation gasifier. High solids concentrations in the feedstock stream can be obtained without significant impact on the feedstock stream stability and pumpability. A consistent quality of syngas can be continuously produced, including generation of carbon dioxide and a carbon monoxide/hydrogen ratio while stably operating the gasifier and avoiding the high tar generation of fluidized bed or fixed bed waste gasifiers and without impacting the operations of the gasifier. The subsequent syngas produced from this material can be used to produce a wide range of chemicals.

  • Publication number: 20200248084
    Abstract: Tires are co-fed into a solid fossil fuel fed entrained flow partial oxidation gasifier. High concentrations of solids and tires in the solids feedstock stream can be stably obtained without significant impact on the feedstock stream stability and pumpability. A consistent quality of syngas can be continuously produced while stably operating the gasifier while remaining within limits of an existing air permit on the gasifier. The subsequent syngas produced from this material can be used to produce a wide range of chemicals.

  • Publication number: 20200248083
    Abstract: Tires are co-fed into a solid fossil fuel such as coal and fed into an entrained flow partial oxidation gasifier. High concentrations of solids and tires in the solids stream can be stably obtained without significant impact on the feedstock stream stability and pumpability. A consistent quality of syngas can be continuously produced while stably operating the gasifier and avoiding the high tar generation of waste gasifiers and without impacting the operations of the gasifier. The subsequent syngas produced from this material can be used to produce a wide range of chemicals.

  • Publication number: 20200248082
    Abstract: Pre-ground plastics of small particle size not more than 2 mm are co-fed into a solid fossil fuel fed entrained flow partial oxidation gasifier. A syngas composition can be made by charging an oxidant and a feedstock composition comprising recycle plastics and a solid fossil fuel to a gasification zone within a gasifier; gasifying the feedstock composition together with the oxidant in said gasification zone to produce said syngas composition; and discharging at least a portion of said syngas composition from said gasifier; wherein the recycled plastics are added to a feed point comprising a solid fossil fuel belt feeding a grinder after the solid fossil fuel is loaded on the belt, a solid fossil fuel belt feeding a grinder before the solid fossil fuel is loaded onto the belt, or a solid fossil fuel slurry storage tank containing a slurry of said solid fossil fuel ground to a size as the size fed to the gasification zone.

  • Publication number: 20200078565
    Abstract: An attachment for a catheter assembly may include a platform, which may include an upper surface and a bottom surface. The bottom surface may be configured to contact skin of a patient. At least a portion of the upper surface may be configured to support the catheter assembly. The upper surface may support the catheter assembly at an angle with respect to skin of the patient that is approximately equal to an insertion angle of a catheter of the catheter assembly. The attachment may include snap feature coupled to the upper surface of the platform. The attachment may include a blunt cannula extending distally from the snap feature. The blunt cannula and the portion of the upper surface may provide a generally straight pathway for an instrument inserted distally through the attachment into the catheter assembly.

  • Publication number: 20190130649
    Abstract: An improved system to provide a clothing model in augmented reality and/or virtual reality is disclosed. In one embodiment, the system provides a fully simulated garment, on the user's device, in an augmented reality or virtual reality display. In one embodiment, the process uses a parameterized smart garment model which enables real-time interaction with the garment on a device such as a mobile phone or tablet, with limited memory and processing power. In one embodiment, the system permits nearly instantaneous alteration of garment sizes. Because the garment is modeled to accurately reflect physical details, the lay of the garment changes as the size of the garment or body changes.
