  • Patent number: 10053173
    Abstract: A height adjusting device for a bicycle includes a mounting tube, a seat post, and a ratchet member. The mounting tube is configured to be inserted into a seat tube of the bicycle, and defines therein an inner tube space. The seat post is telescopically received in the inner tubular space through an upper open end of the mounting tube, and has a rack region with a plurality of rack teeth. The ratchet member has a ratchet end which is rotatable about a ratchet axis among a forward position, a normal position, and a rearward position, and which is coupled to a selected one of rack teeth so as to permit said selected one of the rack teeth to be kept engaged relative to the ratchet end.

  • Publication number: 20180042509
    Abstract: A conductive human interface has a fabric layer with an interior surface and an exterior surface. A soft coating overlies the interior surface of the fabric layer. An electrode or sensor is included to connect with a residual limb. A conductive path connects the electrode or sensor with an electrical connector which, in turn connects with a prosthetic or other assistive device. The conductive path includes a conductor having a section overlying the fabric layer. The overlying section of the conductor can be cord of conductive thread. A nonconductive support thread can extend through the fabric layer from the exterior surface to the interior surface, and further around the conductor to secure the overlying section of the conductor to the fabric layer.

  • Publication number: 20050078475
    Abstract: A system for the protection of airport runway light fixtures and markers is disposed at or near the edge of aircraft runways, taxiway and airport signs. The system includes a thin flexible mat having an axial opening proportioned to enable placement of a runway light fixture or marker therethrough; and peripherally disposed apertures within the mat. The system further includes several anchors for the mat, each of which comprises a planar head, and means for penetration and engagement of earth upon which the mat is positioned. The penetration and engagement elements of each anchor integrally and rigidly depend from a lower surface of the planar head at a central axis. A greatest transverse cross-section of the engagement element is proportioned for complemental insertion within the peripheral apertures of the convex mat. The planar heads of the anchors each engage the mat when the engagement means have fully penetrated the earth upon which the mat is to be secured.
