Surgical access system and related methods

A surgical access system including a tissue distraction assembly and a tissue retraction assembly, both of which may be equipped with one or more electrodes for use in detecting the existence of (and optionally the distance and/or direction to) neural structures before, during, and after the establishment of an operative corridor to a surgical target site. The tissue retraction assembly has a plurality of blades which may be introduced while in a closed configuration, after which point they may be opened to create an operation corridor to the surgical target site, including pivoting at least one blade to expand the operative corridor adjacent to the operative site..

Autoinjector comprising a time delay device having a planetary gear set for delaying the retraction of the needle

Said autoinjector comprising a retarding device (15, 16, 17) adapted to delay during a predetermined time the actuation of said tank movement device (2, 4, 9) by said trigger (19) after injection of the fluid product, to delay retraction of said needle by said predetermined time after the end of injection.. .


Grease gun coupler

A grease gun coupler for delivering grease from a tube of a grease gun to a grease fitting is provided. Insertion of a grease fitting in the coupler pushes in a piston, allows a bias or an operator to push an outer sleeve towards the grease fitting, which biases the ball bearings inwards, thus securing the grease fitting in the coupler.

Top drive operated casing running tool

Spring loaded dogs are attached to the housing to engage the casing internally or externally to facilitate extension or retraction of the slips that selectively grab the topmost of a string of casing. When the tool is suspended from the top drive, its components are rotationally locked to facilitate insertion into the casing stand on top of a string being run in the hole.

Hydraulic closed circuit system

In a hydraulic closed circuit system with hydraulic pumps which maintains a well-balanced flow rate by automatically controlling the flow rate, a first hydraulic pump is connected to a hydraulic cylinder device such that the hydraulic closed circuit is made, a second hydraulic pump is connected at one of paired delivery ports to a bottom side of the hydraulic cylinder device and at the other of the ports to a tank, and a prime mover drives the first and second hydraulic pumps and recovers motive power from these pumps. A pump capacity control unit detects a moving direction of the hydraulic cylinder device, and a pressure in a lower-thrust side of the device, and controls a capacity of the second hydraulic pump so that the flow rate during the extension/retraction of the hydraulic cylinder device becomes balanced between the first and second hydraulic pumps and the hydraulic cylinder device..
