  • Patent number: 10450129
    Abstract: A package for a size-in-store window covering comprises a box having a first portion that extends for the width of the window covering and a second portion that extends for less than the width of the window covering. The window covering extends beyond an end of a bottom wall a first distance and the head rail extends beyond an end of a first side wall a second distance. A method of cutting a window covering comprises providing a window covering in a box as described above and positioning the box with the exposed portion of the window covering facing down and the exposed portion of the head rail facing a clamp. Methods of packaging a window covering comprise reducing the total number of loops in the window covering, and positioning inserts between adjacent components.

  • Publication number: 20050240444
    Abstract: An individualized system and method of mass diagnosis and treatment of obesity that is optionally configurable for a plurality of patients and health providers. Computer and relational data storage systems are used for operating a computer program and a secure web site on an internet. User profiles are assigned for accessing the secure web site using a plurality of computer terminals. Patient data and information are gathered for use in a health risk analysis to determine values for variables in a caloric energy equation. An individualized health provider web page is used to administer a meal plan, an exercise plan and an education plan to influence variables in the caloric energy equation to derive an individualized caloric energy deficit and a starvation response threshold in the patient. Patient compliance information is gathered for use in the health risk analysis and for correlation with the stored data to re-derive the variables.

  • Patent number: 5449000
    Abstract: The unique system of the present invention provides an accurate valid measurement of human body composition consisting of fat tissue, lean tissue and body water. The inventive methodology provides a procedure for quantitative measurement of the conductive potential of the body, which is based on the lean tissue content of the body, in a convenient and reliable manner. In more detail, the quantitative measurement in accordance with the present invention is referred to as a "bio-impedance signal." This electrical signal, in ohms, is derived from a means for measuring body impedance component of the system. The resultant signal (three digit number, between 1 and 1000 ohms) is then entered into a modifying means component to accurately predict the body composition of the tested individual. The unique modifying component, in one embodied form, comprises prediction formulas derived from biological data inputs including: a patient's height, weight, age, and sex to determine a "population prediction variable.

  • Patent number: 4748700
    Abstract: A portable device adapted for use on a toilet seat to dispose of animal waste comprising, a sensor responsive to the animal's weight to start a timer which activates a first solenoid to release a sanitized fluid into the waste container of said device, and to subsequently activate a second solenoid to flush the toilet containing the waste.

  • Patent number: 4607253
    Abstract: A combination door lock and alarm consists of an adjustable shaft, two pads which are able to pivot, and an automatic alarm. The pads are provided with non-skid surfaces which ensure the stability of the device. The pivot feature of the pads allows quick set-up of the device without the need of extensive adjustment. A novel alarm actuating means is also disclosed, which consists of a spring clip in contact with a toggle switch. The use of the toggle switch allows for a continuous alarm signal, even after pressure is removed from the device. The alarm actuating means is activated by a spring loaded shaft, which will be pushed into the main shaft of the device as pressure is applied to the door. The spring clip is mounted on the outside of the spring loaded shaft and the movement of this shaft is what forces the clip to trip the toggle switch. The unit is designed to fit conveniently into a suitcase for travel and can be suspended from a door knob when not in use.
