  • Publication number: 20200298791
    Abstract: The invention relates to a belt deflector with a main element (100) that can be attached to the structure of a vehicle, and with a belt support element (200) that is movable relative to the main element (100) and forms a support surface (231) or support edge for a safety belt (20) to be deflected. According to the invention, the belt deflector comprises an intermediate element (300, 400) that is deformed when the movable belt support element (200) is moved relative to the main element (100), in the direction of the intermediate element (300, 400), and because of this deformation is pressed against the safety belt (20).

  • Patent number: 10769586
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and methods for implementation of a rolling key to identify systems inventories. One method may include receiving, by a processing device of an inventory server from a client system, a key and a key component, wherein the key component comprises a random string of characters generated by the client system to uniquely identify the client system; identifying, using the key as an identifier, the client system in an inventory database of the inventory server; transmitting an acknowledgement to the client system that the client system has been identified in the inventory database and that the inventory server received the key component, the acknowledgement to cause the client system to store the key component as part of a new key used to identify the client system; and storing the key component, wherein storing the key component causes a modification of the key used to identify the client system.

  • Publication number: 20190117838
    Abstract: The invention relates to methods for producing a polymeric scaffold for use in tissue engineering applications or soft tissue surgery, as wellto the produced scaffolds and an associated kit. The method features a first fast drying step of applying a as mechanical compression on a polymeric gel layer and a second slow drying step of the gel up to reach a polymer mass fraction of at least 60% w/w in the final scaffold. The method allows the production of scaffolds with high regeneration and healing properties of a grafted tissue via host cell invasion and colonization, and a good suturability. These goals are achieved through the formation within the scaffold of a non-uniform architecture creating softer and stiffer areas, which is maintained even upon re-swelling of the scaffold upon hydration of the final dried product.
