  • Patent number: 9586430
    Abstract: Disclosed are various embodiments relating to verifying a printed work comprises a correct number of pages. Associated with a stack comprising one or more pages is an identifier that may be used to obtain an expected value for a physical characteristic of the pages in the stack. A sensor may then measure an actual value for the physical characteristic of the pages in the stack. Before binding the pages in the stack, the expected value may be compared to the actual value in order to verify the stack comprises the correct number of pages.

  • Patent number: 8827616
    Abstract: Disclosed are various embodiments relating to verifying a printed work comprises a correct number of pages. Associated with a stack comprising one or more pages is an identifier that may be used to obtain an expected thickness of the pages in the stack. A sensor may then measure an actual thickness of the pages in the stack.

  • Patent number: 6467797
    Abstract: A disclosed walker is a three sided framework allowing quick connect/disconnect to the frame of a conventional standard wheelchair. The walker is formed with a front and two side assemblies pivotally linked to the front assembly. When the walker is not connected to a wheelchair, the side assemblies and front assemblies pivot and collapse into a “z” pattern forming a flat, compact package. For connection to a wheelchair, the sides assemblies unfold perpendicularly to the front assembly, and are locked into place by a horizontal crossbar. U-shaped securing clips located at the rear ends of the walker's side assemblies, drop over and straddle horizontal frame members of the wheelchair tightly grasping the wheelchair's frame members. The stability of the walker/wheelchair combination is enhanced by outward bends of the front vertical sections of the walker which terminate in swivel caster supports.
