Compliant biological scaffold

Publication number: US10966832B2

Application number: US17/021,802

A compliant biological scaffold incorporates a plurality of elongated apertures that form a geometric pattern enabling biaxial expansion or contraction. An elongated aperture has a pair of nodes located on opposing sides of the aperture and between a pair of antinodes located on the extended and opposing ends of the elongated aperture. A geometric pattern may have various geometric shapes, or tiles, between the plurality of apertures. The geometric tiles have a bounded perimeter formed by the plurality of elongated apertures. A substantial portion of the elongated apertures may be configured with the antinodes proximal to one of said pair of nodes of a separate elongated aperture; wherein the antinodes are closer to one of the pair of nodes than to any other antinode. This unique arrangement of the elongated apertures may be formed in biological material in vivo or ex vivo.

Massage device

Publication number: US10952921B1

Application number: US16/502,104

A massage device has a position adjustable handle along a handle slot that extends along a portion of the cane support. The cane support has a support extension portion, or the long substantially linear portion, an arc portion that extends from the support extension in an arc or cure and a head portion. The handle slot may extend a portion of the length of the cane support and along the support extension to the head portion. A vibration device is coupled to the head end of the cane support and may be decoupled from the cane support by a vibration dampening material that extends around the vibration device within a chamber. The vibration dampening material extend out to form a locking ring between the vibration assembly and the massage head. A user can comfortably hold the massage head against their body without excessive vibration in the cane support or handle.

Flexible forefoot protection for insoles and shoes

Publication number: US10952493B1

Application number: US15/997,656

A protective plate for footwear provides protection that is flexible. A protective plate may include a forefoot plate having a ball, middle and lateral section that are configured to move and flex to enable a better feel on uneven terrain. A protective plate may extend from the forefoot to the heel and include a midfoot protective plate and a heel protective plate. Sections of the protective plate are hinged or separated to allow for a greater degree of independent movement of the three main groups of muscles and bones in the forefoot in response to walking, hiking and running on various terrain. A separate insole is described that incorporates the forefoot protection plate and that can be inserted into and removed from footwear in order to provide additional protection as needed. A shoe including outer-sole, midsole and upper, are also described having a flexible protective plate.

Rigid paged book with interleaved book binding

Publication number: US10946688B1

Application number: US17/105,886

A ridged paged book has an interleaved book binding that incorporates page binding couplers that extend from one page to the other along a binding side to enable each page to open and close. A cover binding coupler extends from the front and/or back cover to an adjacent page and may have a cover portion that is longer than a page portion. This longer cover portion may extend along the recess of the cover to provide stability of the cover binding. Pins extend through the covers and pages along a binding side and into the binding couplers to create a durable binding for the rigid paged book. A ridged paged book may have an interleaved book binding configured proximal to a top and/or bottom edge. A ridged paged book may be made out of metal including the covers and pages and the couplers and pins.

Convertible infant carrier backpack system

Publication number: US10939744B2

Application number: US16/396,740

A convertible baby carrier backpack system enables using a backpack portion as a backpack alone, a baby carrier portion as a baby carrier alone, or coupling the two portions together to form an integrated baby carrier backpack. A baby carrier has a carrier opening between a back panel and a carrier panel. A back panel is opposite the shoulder straps and configured away from a carrier when used as a baby carrier, while the carrier panel is configured proximal to the carrier when used as a baby carrier. An exemplary baby carrier portion has a carrier attachment feature configured on the back panel that enables detachable attachment of a backpack. An exemplary backpack portion has a backpack attachment feature that is configured to couple with the carrier attachment feature to enable detachable attachment of the backpack portion to the baby carrier portion.

Thermally insulated fanny pack containment system

Publication number: US10925379B1

Application number: US16/832,829

A thermally insulated fanny pack containment system provides secure containment of temperature sensitive articles in either hot or cold environments by utilizing a rigid double wall bin portion that has an insulating gap between the inner and outer walls. A cover, which is also rigid double wall construction is configured to extend over the top opening of the bin portion and latch down to secure the cover over the bin portion. A belt is coupled to the bin portion and is configured to extend around a person’s waist. One or more detachably attachable thermal liners that are chilled or heated may be configured to fit within the bin portion to control the temperature within the interior of the bin portion enclosure. The thermal liners may have fasteners for securing an article within the bin portion. A bottle-in-bottle may be utilized to prevent moisture exposure to contents therein.

Scooper assembly

Publication number: US10927517B2

Application number: US16/806,352

A scooper assembly has a scoop container attached to the end of a hiking stick and a bag-retainer for retaining a roll of waste collection bags. The container is configured with a set of teeth that extend out from the bottom of the inlet opening and an outlet opening on the back of the container is configured for dumping feces from the container. The container is configured to retain a bag around the back outlet opening. The bag-retainer has a slot for pulling the end of the roll of bags therethrough, bag-teeth to aid in tearing a bag off from the roll, and a cleat and tray for holding a filled bag. A light-mount is configured to allow positioning of a light in any direction and a detachable rake may be alternately used to collect feces. A receptacle for personal articles and for pepper spray is provided.

Brassiere hook-and-eyelet retainer for laundry applications

Publication number: US10920366B1

Application number: US16/129,844

A hook-and-eyelet retainer protects a brassiere hook-and-eyelet clasp from becoming detached in the laundry to prevent damage to the brassiere, other undergarments in the laundry and/or the laundry machine. A hook-and-eyelet retainer has a first and a second retainer portion that are coupled together by a hinge. The first and second retainer portions pivot about the hinge to receive a hook-and-eyelet clasp and wing band. The hook-and-eyelet retainer is then closed and a post on a first retainer portion extends through a closure aperture on a second retainer portion to secure the hook-and-eyelet retainer in a closed position. A plurality of teeth extends up from one or both of the retainer portions to grip onto the hook-and-eyelet clasp and/or the wing band. One or both of the planar retainer portions may be recessed to accommodate the thickness of the brassiere hook-and-eyelet clasp or clasp strap or hook-and-eyelet and wing band.

Multipurpose low emission submersible engine and aquatic craft using same

Publication number: US10603549B2

Application number: US15/973,488

A low emission submersible engine is part of a multipurpose aquatic device, such as an aquatic craft or an electrical generator. A propulsion system having a propeller is coupled to the submersible engine to produce a swimmer propulsion machine and a generator is attached to the engine to produce an electrical generator. The submersible engine receives air from a snorkel that extends up above a water line. The aquatic device has a fuel reservoir which may receive liquid fuel or may receive a fuel cylinder. Floatation chambers keep the aquatic device afloat with the engine submerged. The exhaust assembly and exhaust ports from the engine may also be submerged and the exhaust ports may provide additional thrust. A propulsion system housing integrates the drive shaft and propeller, clutch coupler, exhaust conduits and water flow conduits and is detachably attachable to the engine.
