  • Publication number: 20210307973
    Abstract: An absorbent article comprises first and second substrates and one or more elastic elements disposed at least partially intermediate the substrates. The second substrate is attached to the first substrate and/or to portions of the elastic elements. The absorbent article comprises an adhesive having a first and second pattern of elements disposed on first substrate, and first and second texture zones. The first texture zone comprises a first portion of the substrates, a first portion of the elastic elements, and the first pattern of elements of the adhesive and forms a background pattern in the first portion of the substrates. The second texture zone comprises a second portion of the substrates, a second portion of the one or more elastic elements, and the second pattern of elements of the adhesive and forms a macro pattern in the second portion of the substrates.

  • Patent number: 7488034
    Abstract: A child safety seat assembly, including a base for being positioned on a vehicle seat bottom. An anti-rebound bar is carried by the base and extends outwardly and upwardly from a foot end of the base for engaging a seat back of the vehicle seat to which the seat is attached for retarding inertia-induced rotation of the base and the attached carrier by transmitting rotational force applied to the seat during a sudden change in velocity into the seat back of the vehicle seat onto which the seat is attached.

  • Publication number: 20080260925
    Abstract: A means for replacing common sugars (particularly sucrose) in a range of foods that maximizes sugar-like taste, texture and other key properties of sugar while minimizing the undesirable traits such as blood sugar response, digestive side effects, high caloric content and aftertastes. Various differing ratios and combinations of high intensity sweetening agents, high molecular weight bulking agent(s), substantially non-digestible sugar(s), and low molecular weight sugar alcohol(s) are used for various applications such as tabletop sugar substitute, frozen deserts, condiments, baked goods, chocolate and confectionaries have different formulations. These sugar replacement approaches are highly relevant to the production of diabetic-friendly foods, diet and/or reduced calorie foods, non-cariogenic (tooth-friendly) foods and other sweet, low-glycemic foods.

  • Publication number: 20050054486
    Abstract: Provided is a baby gym-bouncer comprising a base assembly, a seat assembly and a handle assembly. The base assembly includes a base frame connected to the handle assembly. The seat assembly includes a seat frame pivotally connected to the handle assembly. The handle assembly is configured such that the seat assembly may be selectively oriented in a bouncer position or a gym position. In the bouncer position, the seat assembly is upwardly inclined relative to the base assembly. In the gym position, the seat assembly is disposed in substantially abutting contact with the base assembly such that the baby gym-bouncer assumes a substantially narrow cross-sectional profile. The seat frame is configured to be resiliently deflectable downwardly relative to the base assembly when in the bouncer position.
