  • Publication number: 20180352903
    Abstract: A comfort insert to be worn inside a person's footwear to alleviate friction between the person's foot and surfaces of the footwear and possibly provide some cushioning, and a method of assembling such a comfort insert. A body portion of the insert may be of crumpled thin plastic film material, and a containment element may be of fine-filament open mesh netting. A portion of an exterior surface of the insert may be provided with a nonslip or adhesive coating to assist in keeping the comfort insert in a desired location.

  • Publication number: 20170150885
    Abstract: A system for analyzing a possibility of a stress fracture in a patient's bone by applying a vibration of a selected frequency to a patient at a selected anatomical location and analyzing the resulting vibration detected at another anatomical location. Analysis may be based on a database. A probability of the existence of a fracture may be displayed. System software may provide usage instructions.

  • Publication number: 20120046582
    Abstract: A medical dressing for chest wounds, including a one-way valve that can be covered so as to protect against intrusion of airborne contaminants and to prevent passage of fluids in either direction, and including indicia visible using night vision devices but not visible in visible light to the naked eye in some embodiments. The indicia visible using night vision devices may be included in other medical apparatus, as well, so that the medical dressings or other apparatus can be used effectively during darkness, in combat situations, without being seen by enemy combatants not equipped with night vision devices.

  • Patent number: 7479577
    Abstract: Devices for reduction of damage from friction and for prevention and treatment of skin breakdown by relief of friction and shear forces. A friction reducing device may include a pair of thin membranes with low coefficients of friction with respect to each other, and of which one is free to slide through a limited distance along the other. A method of making one such device includes forming a dome in a flexible film and adhesively attaching a skirt surrounding the dome to a skin contact layer. Similar friction reducing devices may be incorporated in shoes, other clothing, or sports equipment or used to protect movable rods or cables.

  • Patent number: 7329229
    Abstract: An orthopedic wrist splint with an initially generally planar malleable metal core covered by a layer of synthetic foam padding material on each of its opposite sides and protected by an outer cover of fabric. In one embodiment, depending on the orientation of the splint relative to the patient, the splint provides greater or lesser firmness of support when the core is bent to conform the splint to the patient's hand, wrist, and forearm. In another embodiment, a central part of the length of the splint lacks the metal core and is flexible, so that two parts of the splint are easily used on opposite sides of an arm or ankle, with the central part comfortably bent around an elbow or a foot, and with the splint firmly supporting the limb.

  • Patent number: 6067987
    Abstract: A tissue-protective device (16, 18, 20, 60, 66, 76, 86, 96, 110, 130) and a method for protecting tissue against abrasion by attaching a pair of mutually overlying membranous layers (26, 28, 122, 124) to an area of a tissue surface such as a person's skin with only the peripheries of the layers interconnected with each other, so that the layers can easily slip along each other. An absorbent pad (88, 98) may be placed between one of the layers and the tissue, and may be impregnated with medication to be delivered to the tissue being protected. A quantity of a lubricant can be contained between the layers. The device is thin, to avoid causing pressure when it is used in restricted spaces, as within one's shoe. The device can also be implanted internally as where tendons move along an implanted plate.

  • Patent number: 5540592
    Abstract: A training manikin for use in teaching students to perform cardio-pulmonary resuscitation includes a head, a neck, and a torso molded integrally of a resilient material allowing flexure of the neck and providing realistic resistance to compression of the torso in simulating external heart massage. An audible signal device indicates adequate chest compression. A tubular airway passage includes a restrictor and a device for indicating sufficient air flow, and can receive obstructors. A cavity in the torso holds a smaller, infant-size similar manikin. The manikin may have a tough watertight skin surrounding a core of resilient microporous foam of lesser density. One embodiment of the invention includes a ball-and-socket joint articulating the head portion with the neck portion.

  • Patent number: 4676233
    Abstract: Splints for immobilizing and supporting injured limbs, fingers, or the neck of a patient may be fashioned of thin malleable sheet metal, preferably dead soft aluminum, provided in the form of a flat strip folded to a convenient, compact shape for storage. For use as a splint, the aluminum sheet is bent to include a stiffening flange or rib extending longitudinally and centrally along the material to support the body member on which the splint is used. The same material may be formed as a cervical collar including a plurality of vertically-extending, outwardly-projecting stiffening flanges. The sheet metal is preferably covered by a layer of adhesively attached, resilient plastic foam material which insulates, cushions, and helps to prevent the splint from shifting relative to the body of the person on which it is used.
