||PCT/AU2014/000450||SCHENCK PROCESS AUSTRALIA PTY LTD||STRONG, Craig|
A headed retention pin is proposed that seats into recesses in the lower adjoining edges of two screening panels. The heads are tapered vertical from the upper surface of the head to the lower edge of the panels and tapered horizontally from the outer edge of the heads toward the centre line of the head which lies on the join line of the two adjacent panels. These appear to be an X in plan view. The advantage is that as well as locating the panels correctly and retaining the panels on the frame they also pull the adjacent panels together to reduce ingress of fines between the panels.

||PCT/AU2014/000473||PRESSURX PTY LTD||MAY, Keenan|
A patient movement monitoring system comprising sensing hardware (100) which can be in the form of a sheet or planar member that is placed under a patient who may be susceptible to pressure ulcers due to lack of movement. The sensing hardware can comprise two or more energy harvesting devices (102) with each energy harvesting device (102) being configured to output a current in response to detected patient movement. Each energy harvesting device (102) can comprise a piezoelectric device. The system can also comprise a wirelesss transmitter (105) that can be powered by at least one of the currents and on receipt of said currents transmits at least one data packet representative of the detected movement, a network that communicates the respective currents from the energy harvesting devices to the wireless transmitter (105) and a remote receiving device (106) or computer running sensing software (108) that processes the at least one data packet and provides an output of said data for analysis.
