An entire structure combining the lower rails, the upper rails and the lock mechanisms is substantially symmetrical forward, backward, and bilaterally, and a force applied to the lower rails and the upper rails can be absorbed substantially evenly forward, backward, and left and right.

High-uniformity limited-spread point spread function light emitter
Simple yet powerful mathematical solutions are provided for producing a minimally-spreading de-pixelization light spread function with four-fold bilateral symmetry to create a high dynamic range led-lcd display where the point spread functions of each led regardless of intensity can be designed such that adjacent rows and columns of leds within an array blend smoothly and uniformly to create a non-pixelated continuous image in two dimensions on the diffuser screen and with minimal luminance overlap to minimize the computational demands required at video rate of an hdr display. The resulting image has substantially visually perfect uniform luminance, linear luminance and quadratic luminance gradient.

Extraoral nasal molding headgear device for the treatment of cleft lip and palate
The present invention is a device for pre-surgical treatment of cleft lip and cleft palate. The device is extraoral thus reducing the risk associated with existing devices and technologies that are intraoral, such as, for example utilizing a nasoalveolar molding (nam) appliance.
Facet joint replacement instruments and methods
A facet joint replacement system includes an inferior implant with an inferior articular surface, a superior implant with a superior articular surface, and an optional crossbar. The inferior implant and the superior implant are each polyaxially adjustably connected to fixation elements which anchor the implants to adjacent vertebrae.

Equine fitness monitor
Monitoring the physiological state of an equine by measuring data with which a user can make educated decisions for the well-being of his equine. The physiological monitoring system may consist of wearable sensor units that are removably attached to the equine and a display hub unit which collects data and displays the results to the user.
Methods for treating heart arrhythmia
Methods and apparatus are provided for treatment of heart arrhythmia via renal neuromodulation. Such neuromodulation may effectuate irreversible electroporation or electrofusion, ablation, necrosis and/or inducement of apoptosis, alteration of gene expression, action potential attenuation or blockade, changes in cytokine up-regulation and other conditions in target neural fibers.
