Having Freely Moving Occupant Or Article Carriage On Turning Platform Patents (Class 472/28)
  • Patent number: 8630734
    Abstract: A method to move a person with an automated manipulator, in particular a robot, includes moving a rider receptacle for a person with the manipulator, and determining an acceleration variable of this movement before and/or during the execution of this movement and comparing the acceleration variable with a predetermined acceleration variable and/or adapting the movement to a predetermined acceleration variable in the event that the determined acceleration variable deviates from the predetermined acceleration variable, and/or a predetermined acceleration variable is used that includes different permissible acceleration durations that are respectively associated with a permissible acceleration value.

  • Patent number: 5520888
    Abstract: A reactor/sterilizer for disinfecting contaminated medical and/or biological waste comprises, in accordance with the present invention, at least one shredder/grinder to reduce in size solid waste to be disinfected, means to introduce waste into the shredder/grinder, a freezer or ice maker which traps disinfecting concentrations of ozone from an ozone generator in ice so that the ice can be added to the bio-medical waste prior to a shredding or grinding step. In a disinfecting method, the present invention relates to the treatment of biological and/or medical waste with ozone containing ice by admixing the ice with the the waste and allowing the ice to melt, thereby releasing ozone and exposing the waste to effective concentrations of ozone to disinfect the waste. In preferred embodiments, the instant biomedical reactor/sterilizer has both a coarse shredder/grinder and a fine shredder/grinder. The shredder/grinder produces a slush or slurry of waste and ice-containing ozone.
