  • Publication number: 20210370494
    Abstract: An exoskeleton system comprising a leg actuator unit that is configured to be coupled to a leg of a user. The leg actuator unit includes: an upper arm and a lower arm that are rotatably coupled via a rotatable joint, the rotatable joint configured to be positioned at a knee of the user with the upper arm coupled about an upper-leg portion of the user above the knee and with the lower arm coupled about a lower-leg portion of the user below the knee. The upper arm is configured to be coupled to the upper-leg portion above the knee via a first set of couplers that includes a first upper-leg coupler, the lower arm is configured to be coupled to the lower-leg portion below the knee via a second set of couplers that includes one or more lower-leg couplers associated with a lower-leg brace, and an actuator extends between the upper arm and lower arm, the actuator configurable to move the upper arm and lower arm.

  • Patent number: 8414266
    Abstract: An improved transverse axis fluid turbine and system thereof are disclosed. The turbine has a base structure, rotor rotatably attached to the base structure, and at least three blades rotatably attached to the rotor. The blade has an elongated member, having first and second ends, and a blade member, the first end being rotatably attached to the rotor and the blade member is attached to the second end. The first end has a helical gear. An actuating device is disposed in the rotor and engages with the helical gear with a corresponding gear to control and actuate rotation of the blade. The rotation is controlled to maximize the effective exposed area of the blade when the blade moves in the direction of the flowing fluid and minimize the area when the blade moves thereagainst. The actuating device can be controlled by a direction vane to accommodate changes in direction of fluid flow.

  • Patent number: 7405056
    Abstract: A workstation that provides an efficient method to collect biological tissues in a column tissue array format from blocks of embedded, frozen tissues, or fresh tissues. The workstation has a control unit for directing operations of the workstation and the operation unit for performing the production of the tissue column array. The operation unit comprises an array of vertical tubes in a platform, an arbor which engages and presses down the designated tube in the array, the embedded tissue block which is mounted directly below the designated tube, assemblies of motors responsive to the control unit for driving the platform and the tissue block, a light source block for generating an alignment signal, and a light detector block which measures the signal from the light source to determine the degree of alignment between the arbor, punch tubes, and the specimen block.
