A patient positioning system for use with a patient on a bed includes an inflatable patient support device, and optionally, other components such as one or more wedges and/or an absorbent pad. The device includes top and bottom sheets, where the top sheet is connected to the bottom sheet to define a cavity, such that the top and bottom sheets form top and bottom walls of the cavity in use. The device further has passages extending from the cavity to an exterior of the device, through the bottom sheet, and gussets connected to the top and bottom sheets and extending across the cavity. The passages permit air to pass from the cavity to the exterior of the device and to flow between the bottom surface of the device and the surface supporting the device. Selective glide assemblies may be used to resist sliding of these components in certain directions.

A pumping apparatus includes a pump configured for moving air, a housing supporting and at least partially containing the pump, and an air output that includes a hose having a first end connected to the housing and in communication with the pump, such that the pump is configured to move air through the hose, and a second end configured for allowing air to exit the hose, wherein the hose has a length defined between the first and second ends. A switch is mounted on the hose and located along the length of the hose, and the switch is configured for controlling operation of the pump. The switch is located a distance from the second end of the hose that is less than 50% of the length of the hose.

Molecular compounds have a strong tendency to have crystalline order in the solid state. Amorphous materials do exist, of course, but they are rarely the most stable solid form unless they are stabilized by a surface such as that of a polymer or inorganic particle. The need to discover and control the solid form of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) is highlighted by cases such as ritonavir and cefdinir in which newly discovered polymorphs have resulted in considerable processing difficulties, formulation problems, and legal wrangling. Crystallographically unrelated molecules of the same chemical type can be quite distinct from one another in the solid state because the environment around each symmetry-independent molecule is different, giving rise, for example, to distinct solid-state NMR spectra.


An apparatus (10) is configured for use with a chair (12) having a supporting surface (16), and includes a cushioning member (30) adapted to be placed above the supporting surface, a bottom sheet (24) connected to the cushioning member and having an engagement surface (25) opposite the cushioning member, a top sheet (44) having a bottom surface positioned in confronting relation to the engagement surface and a top surface opposite the bottom surface, and a selective gliding assembly (60) positioned between the top and bottom sheets. The top sheet has at least one end connected to the bottom sheet, and the top sheet further has a slip resistant material positioned on the top surface. The selective gliding assembly includes engagement members (61, 62) positioned on the engagement surface and on the bottom surface of the top sheet, and the engagement members engage each other to resist forward sliding of the top sheet and to permit rearward sliding of the top sheet.


A method of securing a blade to an apparatus for cutting vegetation, wherein the apparatus includes a first and a second blade contacting structure. The method includes providing an elongated blade that is configured and arranged to be relatively flexible; and positioning the elongated blade between the first blade contacting structure and the second blade contacting structure such that the first blade contacting structure makes contact with a first surface of the elongated blade and the second blade contacting structure makes contact with a second surface of the elongated blade. The positioning step results in a plurality of bending forces being applied to the first and second surfaces of the elongated blade via the first and second blade contacting structures, thereby bending the elongated blade, and whereby the bending forces secure the elongated blade to the apparatus for cutting vegetation.


A cleaning product for an indwelling urinary catheterized patient including an outer packaging film and at least one washcloth disposed within the film. The at least one washcloth is infused with a cleaning solution that is compatible with the indwelling urinary catheter. A method of using the cleaning product for an indwelling urinary catheterized patient including providing an outer packaging film and at least one washcloth disposed within the film that is infused with a cleaning solution that is compatible with an indwelling urinary catheter, opening the outer packaging film to expose the at least one washcloth, removing the at least one washcloth from the outer packaging film, and cleaning a meatal and surrounding area of the patient with the at least one washcloth.


A system for use with a bed having a frame and a supporting surface includes a sheet having a bottom surface placed above the supporting surface of the bed, a top surface, and a plurality of tether straps connected to and extending from the sheet. Each tether strap is configured for connection to the bed. The bottom surface is at least partially formed of a low friction material, and the top surface is at least partially formed of a high friction material, such that the top surface provides greater slipping resistance than the bottom surface. The tether straps include at least two pairs of tether straps, with one pair connected proximate a top edge of the sheet and another pair connected proximate a bottom edge of the sheet. The sheet may further include a sliding member on the bottom surface to assist in lateral sliding of the sheet.

A trapping device for trapping non-dispersing cloths in a toilet bowl is disclosed. The trapping device comprises a strap and a plurality of hooks. The trapping device may be installed in a trapway of the toilet bowl. The strap has a first end, a second end, and a middle portion, wherein the first end includes a first tab extending perpendicular to the strap and the second end includes a second tab extending perpendicular to the strap, and the middle portion is rounded. The plurality of hooks extend from an inner wall of the strap. The strap is made of a strap material that is resilient to bend and springs back to its previous shape, such as a stainless steel or a high density polyethylene.
