  • Patent number: 5338275
    Abstract: This invention is both preventive and corrective of a running athlete's muscle strength imbalances of the leg, hip, and back; facilitating specific rehabilitation of associated muscle injury. The sandal-like upper construction employs a special underside structure supportive of a flapper type hydro-resistance device having a special one-way drag-action. Since temperate water presents a constant given drag-factor, the user or therapist may readily readjust the extendable sole-flapper's induced hydro-drag length to suit particular therapy needs, and the capability of a given user. Additionally, the invention is constructed with special longitudinal-fin like risers, enabling user to walk upon a pool bottom without imposing scuffing damage to scuff-prone pool surfaces.

  • Patent number: 5303480
    Abstract: A specialized hand-portable device for use by a medical-technician in measuring the amount of head fore/aft-deviation from a "standardized norm" reference-point (manubrium of sternum). Configured in the form of an inverted T-shape, the vertical body portion of which serves as a common stanchion, including a horizontal lower scale-beam member having a sternal-probe. The vertical stanchion is adjustable fore/aft relative to the chest sternum; the probe's tip entity being shaped to lay naturally against one's sternal-notch. The upper portion of the stanchion includes a vertically adjustable second horizontal-probe member, the tip-rest thereof being formed to lightly impinge upon the zygomatic-arch region of one's face. The instrument is intitially set to "zero" on the sternal/reference-scale, which precalibration adheres to an "ideal norm" of reference, while leveling to a visual sight-bubble.
