|PCT/NZ2014/000016||MASCULL, ROGER THOMAS AND MASCULL, ELIZABETH JOCELYN AS TRUSTEES OF THE RT AND EJ MASCULL FAMILY TRUST||MASCULL, Bruce Gordon|
The invention relates to a backrest for people with postural support needs. The backrest comprises a substrate having a plurality of attachment apertures located on the substrate in a regular arrangement. The attachment apertures are adapted to allow one or more lateral supports to be attached to the substrate by securing the lateral support(s) to the substrate with an attachment system that engages with one or more attachment apertures. By locating the attachment apertures on the substrate in a regular arrangement, the lateral support(s) can be attached to the substrate at a desired height and at a desired distance from the centre of the substrate.

|PCT/NZ2014/000017||AUCKLAND UNISERVICES LIMITED||LEARY, Peter|
A method and system for identifying zones of relative high fracture connectivity in a geologic formation such as a geothermal reservoir or other subsurface region, which comprises comparing well-log data on the distribution of K relative to Th and/or U and assessing for zones of increased fracture connectivity in the rock from the comparison. The distribution of spatial statistics of K is compared to the distribution of spatial statistics of Th and/or U to determine zones of relatively high fracture connectivity/permeability. Such information may be used in a drilling operation for improving extraction well performance.
