  • Patent number: 10376297
    Abstract: A bone fixation clamp includes a first arcuate clamp member conforming to a shape of a bone and extending between a first connection end and a first free end, a second arcuate clamp member conforming to a shape of the bone, a second connection end of the second clamp member being pivotally attached to the first clamp member, the second clamp member extending between the second connection end and a second free end and a driving member received in the first clamp member passing out of the first clamp member to abut an abutment portion of the second member so that, as the driving member is extended further out of the first member, the driving member pivots the second clamp member relative to the first clamp member to draw the first and second free ends toward one another to apply a radially compressive force to the bone.

  • Patent number: 10314626
    Abstract: A plate for treating a bone includes a plate body extending along a longitudinal axis from a first end to a second end and being sized, shaped and contoured to be positioned along a desired surface of a bone. The plate also includes a slotted opening extending through the plate body and defined by a first portion sized and shaped to permit a head portion of a bone fixation element fixed to the bone to be passed therethrough and a second elongated portion extending along the longitudinal axis from the first portion in communication with the first portion, the second portion sized to prevent the head portion of the bone fixation element from being passed therethrough so that, when the head portion of the bone fixation element is received through the first portion, the plate is slidable relative thereto such that the second portion engages the head portion of the bone fixation element.

  • Patent number: 6959233
    Abstract: A method and system to authorize a locomotive engineer to move a train along the track in a non-signaled territory wherein a non-verbal movement authority is generated, converted to verbal form via voice synthesis, communicating to the designated train, and accepted or rejected by a locomotive engineer on such train. Secure codes can be utilized to regulate reception of, and/or acceptance or rejection of, the movement authority.

  • Patent number: 5146043
    Abstract: A bullet holder for extracting a bullet from the cartridge casing that includes an elongated body portion having arm members pivotally connected at one end and movable toward one another in a pincer-type movement. Intermediate the arm members is positioned a bullet retaining portion having a plurality of oppositely positioned recesses forming holes of selected diameter corresponding to selected bullet calibers. The assemblied cartridge casing and bullet is secured in the chuck of a loading press. The chuck is moved to an initial position for engaging the bullet by the holder in a selected one of the holes formed by the recesses. The arm members are squeezed to frictionally engage the bullet so upon downward movement of the cartridge casing, the bullet is retained stationarily positioned to separate the cartridge casing from the bullet.

  • Patent number: 4850525
    Abstract: A return mailer bearing computer readable information including a mailing panel of a first surface porosity, adapted to bear an address of a returnee, further including a folding sealing flap along one transverse edge that is adapted to form a transverse edge of the envelope when it is folded and sealed. Also included is an information panel of a second surface porosity, bearing machine readable information on at least one side, which includes two transverse perforations, wherein the perforations are separated by a longitudinal distance sufficient to span the portions of each side of the information panel bearing information of interest to the returnee. The two panels are joined by an adhesive along the two longitudinal segments of their periphery to form the two longitudinal edges of the envelope. The adhesive maintains the mailer in sealed condition during mailing, while not contributing to gnarling or tearing of either panel upon separating the two panels upon opening.
