A method, an apparatus and a system for sizing a trapping device for trapping non-dispersing cloths and/or other materials in a toilet bowl and/or a hopper sink are disclosed. A computer device may be used to implement the method for sizing one or more trapping devices for installation at a facility, such as a medical institution. The computer device may be configured to determine a configuration of a trapway for each of one or more toilet bowls and/or hopper sinks at the facility. After determining the configuration, the computer device may determine a size of a trapping device corresponding to the determined configuration of each of the one or more trapways.


A patient support device includes a sheet configured to be placed beneath the patient in use and a plurality of straps connected to the sheet and configured for use in moving, lifting, turning, and/or positioning the patient. The straps may include one or more retractable straps that each have a stretchable retraction strap connected thereto and configured for retracting the retractable strap. The straps may also include one or more central support straps connected to the sheet in an area positioned between the legs of the patient. The sheet may also include a head support for supporting the patients head, which head support may also include one or more straps. The straps may be connected to a hoist, which is then used to lift the patient.


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.

Provided herein are methods and compositions for maintaining human stem cells in either a nave state or a primed state, inducing, promoting, inhibiting, or controlling the transition from one state to another, and detecting the state of a stem cell. Also disclosed are compositions comprising substantially homogenous populations of primed state or nave state stem cells.


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 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.
