  • Publication number: 20060264793
    Abstract: A patellofemoral brace including a buttress for supporting a wearer's patella is provided. The patellofemoral brace includes an elastic sleeve that is easy to apply to the wearer's leg and easy to remove from the wearer's leg. The sleeve includes distinct bands of material so that end bands are substantially rotationally independent of a central band. The end bands resist translation along and rotation about the wearer's leg. The brace further includes a tensioning strap that lies across the buttress to further support the buttress and the wearer's patella. A portion of the tensioning strap is constructed of a thermoplastic elastomer, so that the strap provides firmer support to the buttress than a fabric strap, but is more comfortable and more evenly supports the buttress than a hard, inelastic strap.

  • Publication number: 20020080002
    Abstract: An inductor coil is made with windings turns in a conical shape tapered from a very small diameter and gradually increasing. The core of the coil is composed of a dielectric material with a colloidal suspension of magnetic particles, i.e. poly-iron. The core functions to increase impedance at higher frequencies to reduce resonant loss glitches, while providing a low impedance at low frequencies to provide a high Q at low frequencies. The core can be part air (or non-magnetic dielectric) and part poly-iron, with the air portion provided closest to a transmission line where the inductor is connected to prevent the core from interfering with the magnetic field of signals on a transmission line.

  • Patent number: 5993906
    Abstract: A liquid thermoset coating is described for application on and near surfaces of molded plastic parts where the resin rich phase has been disturbed or imperfectly formed. The coating has been found to be effective at minimizing paint pops and craters in subsequent finish coatings on said parts. Said paint pops and craters develop during heated cure cycles for the finish coatings. The coating which is applied to the heated part and subsequently cured is preferably an epoxy composition of low viscosity. The molded plastic parts are preferably fiber reinforced thermoset polyester parts with an in-mold coating to improve surface quality.
