Method and soft tissue retraction

A soft tissue retractor includes a retractor body and a proximal projection extends generally perpendicular to the proximal end of the retractor body. An illumination waveguide engages a slot in the retractor blade to provide illumination to a surgical site while maintaining total internal reflection in the waveguide.

Boat speed minimisation system

A trolling plate which, together with a supporting and deployment mechanism, is fixed to and strutted from an outboard motor without the need for engineering modifications or the use special tools; said trolling plate being pivotably deployable into the water in the zone immediately downstream of the propeller of the outboard motor to substantially block the efflux from said propeller and thereby reduce its propulsive effort; said deployment being effected in a universally variable way by means of a suitable actuator; control means of said actuator and/or said deployment mechanism incorporating means to permit the immediate retraction of said trolling plate should it impact an obstruction or should the power of said outboard motor suddenly be increased.. .


Insertion mechanisms having vented fluid pathways for drug delivery pumps

An insertion mechanism having a vented fluid pathway includes an insertion biasing member 210, a hub 212, a needle 214, a retraction biasing member 216, and a manifold 240 having a septum 230 and a cannula 234, wherein the annular space between the septum 230 and the cannula 234 defines a manifold header 242. The manifold and fluid conduit are ventable through the membrane prior to or just after needle 214 and cannula 234 are inserted into the user.

Laparoscopic instrument and trocar systems and related surgical method

Laparoscopic instruments and trocars are provided for performing laparoscopic procedures entirely through the umbilicus. A generally c-shaped trocar provides increased work space between the hands of the surgeon as well as s-shaped laparoscopic instruments placed through the trocar when laparoscopic instrument-trocar units are placed through the umbilicus.

Self-correcting drive and motor control for cargo canopy systems

In the coupling of bi-directional, non-freewheeling-type dc motors (24,25) to the pulling spool (23) of a canopy (1 1) deployment strap (21,22) and to a take-up roller (15), ratchet gears (26,27) assure automatic alignment and synchronization of the deployment and retraction mechanisms. The reverse direction rotation of the unwinding motor can be uninhibited through the slipping of its ratchet gear when the winding motor is slow to take up the pulling strap or the tarp (11) being wound thereon.


Unit retraction device and image forming apparatus including same

A unit retraction device has a hook member which engages with an engaged portion provided on a unit, and a retraction force generating mechanism which exerts a retraction force on the unit. The retraction force generating mechanism includes a first rotary member which is rotatably disposed on a first rotation pivot and to a rotating end part of which the hook member is coupled, a biasing member of which one end is hooked to the first rotary member and which biases the first rotary member in such a direction that the hook member retracts the unit into the apparatus body, and a second rotary member to which another end of the biasing member is hooked and which is rotatably disposed on a second rotation pivot.

Process for spot-joining stacked metal foils

Friction stir spot-welding is performed to join together a stack of a plurality of metal foils and a metal sheet by using a double-acting type rotary tool including a hollow member and a pin member which are movable independently of each other in their axial directions, and a clamp member which is fitted on an outer circumferential surface of the hollow member and which is movable in its axial direction. While an outer annular part of a portion to be friction-stirred is pressed with the clamp member, the pin member is inserted into the above-described portion and the hollow member is retracted, whereby a metal mass is accommodated within a space formed between the above-described portion and the hollow member.
