||PCT/AU2013/000041||POLYMERIC POWDERS COMPANY PTY LTD||VAINER, Michael|
The present invention relates generally to utilising gasses for fragmenting polymeric materials and simultaneously modifying the surface area molecular structure of the said polymeric materials. More particularly, the present invention relates to a method and associated device for the processing of already preliminarily deformed polymeric materials, preferably without metal reinforcing elements, by utilising aggressive gasses to both modify the polymeric materials surface area into an activated state and also simultaneously fragment the fed preliminarily deformed polymeric materials into a powder-like form with a relatively increased surface area.

The safety device further includes an adapter (612) to provide fluid communication between the inflating product container and the inflatable bladder. The adapter including (i) a container coupling formation adapted to secure the adapter to the inflating product container and (ii) an actuator operatively adapted to place the inflating product container in the open condition. The safety device further includes a controller (48) operatively associated with the actuator. The controller includes a sensor assembly so that in use the controller is adapted to generate an activation signal responsive to measurements taken by the sensor assembly. The actuator is operatively adapted to place the inflating product container in the open condition responsive to the controller generating the activation signal.

||PCT/AU2014/000021||RESMED LIMITED||CULLEN, Christopher Samuel|
A nasal patient interface for delivery of a supply of pressurised air or breathable gas to an entrance of a patient's airways comprising a cushion member that includes a retaining structure and a seal-forming structure permanently connected to the retaining structure; a frame member attachable to the retaining structure; a positioning and stabilising structure releasably attachable to the frame member; and a headgear clip that mechanically and magnetically engages the frame member to the positioning and stabilising structure. The frame further comprising a vent structured to allow washout of exhaled air and a baffle structured to segregate the exhaled air via the vent from the supply of pressurised air or breathable gas.

||PCT/AU2013/001513||METZKE PTY LTD||LEAHY, Matthew K.|
A particle distributor assembly (10) for distributing the particles of a drill sample is described. The distributor assembly comprises a stationary inlet tube (14) through which particles enter the distributor assembly (10), and a rotatable distributor head (16). The rotatable distributor head (16) has an upwardly directed inlet (18) offset from a central axis of rotation of the distributor head (16) and a transversely directed outlet (22) wherein, in use, when the distributor head (16) is rotated at high speed particles entering the distributor head inlet are accelerated outwardly in a radial direction through the distributor head outlet. The particle distributor assembly (10) also has a distributor nozzle (24) having an inlet (26) and an outlet (28), the nozzle inlet (26) being aligned with the stationary inlet tube and the nozzle outlet (28) being aligned with the distributor head inlet. The distributor nozzle (24) is supported between the inlet tube (14) and the distributor head (16) in such a manner that it is constrained from rotating whilst the nozzle outlet (28) is able to oscillate in a circular motion with the distributor head inlet (18). In use, the oscillating motion of the nozzle outlet (28) helps to promote particle flow and produce a more representative distribution of particles exiting from the distributor head outlet (22).

||PCT/AU2014/000029||SENSEN NETWORKS PTY LTD||VO, Nhat Dinh Minh|
A system for identifying a vehicle. A camera obtains at least one image of a vehicle. An image processor derives from the image a first sub-image and a second sub-image distinct from the first sub-image, extracts from the first sub-image a first set of image features, and extracts from the second sub-image a second set of image features. The image processor matches the first set of image features to corresponding image features derived from a previously obtained image of a vehicle to produce a first matching score, and also matches the second set of image features to corresponding image features derived from a previously obtained image of a vehicle to produce a second matching score. The image processor then fuses the first matching score and the second matching score to produce a fused score which indicates whether the at least one image is of the same vehicle as the previously obtained image.

A disruptive emitter is comprised on the probe which emits a force to the fluid sufficient to cause the fluid to fuse the two or more tissues. The device finds particular application to treatment of a detached retina by fusing the retina and the retinal pigmented epithelium. A method of fusing two or more tissues including a retina and underlying retinal pigmented epithelium is also disclosed

The present invention relates to the detection of seizure disorders such as epilepsy. Specifically, the present invention is directed to the identification of mutations and alterations in the Dishevelled, Egl-10 and Pleckstrin Domain Containing protein 5 (DEPDC5) gene that give rise to such disorders. The present invention enables methods for the diagnosis or prognosis of seizure disorders, and enables use of the DEPDC5 gene and its encoded polypeptide in drug screening assays for the identification of therapeutics for the treatment and/or prevention of such disorders. The present invention also encompasses isolated nucleic acid molecules and polypeptides, and fragments thereof, which have an alteration in the DEPDC5 gene and its encoded polypeptide that gives rise to a seizure disorder phenotype.
