A blood pressure monitor equipped with a cardiovascular health condition monitoring module includes: a blood pressure measurement device measuring a users blood pressure signal; a host including a blood pressure monitor microprocessor that processes blood pressure correlated signal; a control panel equipped to the host and configured to control blood pressure measured by the blood pressure monitor and heart rhythm analysis; a first display device displaying blood pressure result; and a second display device displaying heart rhythm analysis from the cardiovascular health condition monitoring module.


A wearable device which diagnoses personal cardiac health condition by monitoring and analyzing heartbeat includes a motion sensor detecting whether the user is in a motion state; a heart rhythm sensor detecting the users signal of heartbeat interval; a memory storing algorithm program and database for data process, comparison, and analysis; a microprocessor calculating, filtering and judging the signal of heartbeat interval; and a feedback module displaying or alarming a judgment result, wherein the wearable device continuously detects the users motion state and heartbeat condition, and detects heart rhythm when the user is not in the motion state to further judge the users cardiac health condition, such as atrial fibrillation.

A multi-functional holster is especially adapted for receiving a pair of childs scissors. The holster is preferably in the form of a rigid or semi-rigid housing having a front and a flange-like periphery defining a scissor opening. A chute is mounted to said housing for receiving the blades of a pair of scissors inserted into the scissor opening. A pencil sharpener is mounted to the housing and interiorly disposed to be accessible through an access opening through the flange-like periphery. The scissors are retained in said housing by at least one magnet and at least one retention tab. The front of the housing may be generally shaped in the form of an apple or a whale and be suitably decorated to appeal to a child.


An orthodontic appliance, includes a crimpable tubular shaped portion having at least three walls selected from the group consisting of a lingual wall, a buccal or labial wall, an occlusal wall and a gingival wall, the at least three walls defining and opening configured to receive an archwire therethrough in a mesial-distal direction. The appliance includes at least one wing joined to the tubular shaped portion, the at least one wing extending longitudinally in the mesial-distal direction. A slot is provided in the at least one wing open to an end of the wing in the mesial or distal direction and having a depth in the mesial distal direction and a height in a gingival-occlusal direction configured to receive a ligature wire or elastic.

A pair of scissors especially designed for children incorporates various ergonomic features to facilitate usage by a child. The shank and handle of one scissor are disposed at an offset angle to the blade. An assist leaf is pivotally mounted to one of the handles and is movable to engage the other handle to establish a minimum opening angle for the blades. The assist leaf in its functional position is resilient and imparts a slight spring reaction force upon application of a compressive force between the thumb and fingers. The minimum opening angle facilitates usage by the child since the opening and closing force on the scissors is lessened. The leaf is pivotal to a retracted position when the blades are in a fully closed position.

A fan damper includes a frame and a plurality of hollow airfoil blades, each having a leading edge, a trailing edge, a seal formed on the trailing edge, and a pivot mechanism on either end of each blade, each of which pivot mechanisms includes an extension that includes a weight. A secondary seal is positioned between the pivot mechanisms and the sides of the frame. A ladder bar connects the pivot mechanisms. During significant air pressure changes, such as when a fan is turned on, the airfoil blades are caused to move, against the weights from a first, closed, overlapping position relative to the frame, whereupon the seal on the trailing edge of a relatively upper blade seals against the leading edge of an adjacent relatively lower blade, and the secondary side frame seal seals against the pivot mechanisms, to a second, open position. The airfoil blades will stay in the open position as long as the air pressure is enough to overcome the effect of the weights. When the air pressure decreases sufficiently, the blades return to the closed, overlapping position.

A seismic expansion joint cover assembly installed at an expansion gap between a first structural member on one side of a gap and a second structural member on the opposite side of the gap including a cover panel bridging the gap having at least one connector joining one edge of the cover panel to the first structural component to allow movement of the cover panel. The expansion joint cover assembly includes at least one slide support, which attaches to the second structural member, and which includes a track having a lift component located on the track to lift the cover panel. The expansion joint cover assembly also includes a rider assembly for engaging with the track of the slide support. One or more spring assemblies are attached to the second structural member and the cover panel. The expansion joint cover assembly is mechanically latched when the system is in the normal service position, but has the capability of becoming unlatched in response to large displacements.
