||PCT/NZ2016/050061||UNIVERSITY OF CANTERBURY||KEATS, Gavin David|
An energy dissipation device (1) having a longitudinal axis A1, with first and second members (3), (5) that are movable longitudinally relative to each other upon an axial load applied along the longitudinal axis of the device. A plurality of U-shaped flexural plates (UFPs) (11) are arranged between the first and second members (3), (5) in the longitudinal direction of the device and operatively attached to the first and second members (3), (5) and configured to flex upon relative movement of the first and second members (3), (5). An energy dissipation device may have at least one redundant yielding-type energy dissipater 13 connected to one but not both of the first and second members (3), (5).
WO/2016/163896 ARTICLE CONVEYING SYSTEM WITH DIFFUSE ILLUMINATION||WO||13.10.2016|
||PCT/NZ2016/050058||COMPAC TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED||GALBRAITH, Duncan|
An article inspection system (40) comprises one or more endless article conveyors (11) configured to convey articles (12) along one or more conveying paths (42). One or more light sources and one or more light diffusers (15) are provided, wherein each light diffuser (15) is positioned substantially at or below the level of the articles (12) when conveyed along the conveying paths so as to illuminate, using light from the one or more light sources, at least side portions of the articles (12) with substantially diffuse light when the articles are conveyed along the conveying path(s) (42). At least one camera (46) is positioned to image articles (12) which are conveyed along the conveying paths (42).
WO/2016/163894 CONTROL OF PARASITIC INFECTION IN ANIMALS||WO||13.10.2016|
||PCT/NZ2016/000001||CROPMARK SEEDS LIMITED||PATCHETT, Brian James|
The invention relates to the use of alkaloid lolines to reduce parasitic infection in livestock and especially in ruminants, particularly sheep. The loline alkaloids are produced by and found in, grasses infected by endophytes. These grasses can be sown in areas where ruminants graze. Consumption of the grass supports the accumulation of loline alkaloids in the rumen of the animals and leads to a lower rate of infection by internal parasites and hence healthier livestock. The loline alkaloids may be produced by a number of endophytes present in a range of suitable grasses. The invention also provides a range of grasses which are suitable for the treatment of internal infection by parasites in livestock, especially ruminants and more especially sheep.
WO/2016/163895 A NASAL MEDICATION DELIVERY DEVICE||WO||13.10.2016|
||PCT/NZ2016/050002||AFT PHARMACEUTICALS LIMITED||ATKINSON, Hartley Campbell|
The invention relates to a delivery device for nasal medication. It addresses need for delivering medication to the nose of a patient. In a preferred embodiment the device has: • A transducer 10 adapted to create an ultrasonic focal zone; • a feeder chamber 13 holding medication; • an energising chamber 14 smaller than the feeder chamber; • a mesh 15; and • an exit 17. The device is formed so that when it is activated the feeder chamber 13 continuously fills the energising chamber 14 with medication (until the feeder chamber has insufficient medication left to achieve this) so that there is a substantially constant supply of medication within the focal zone able to be energised and forced from the energising chamber so as to contact the mesh, become an aerosol, and leave the device by way of the exit.
WO/2016/159783 PATIENT INTERFACE||WO||06.10.2016|
||PCT/NZ2016/050050||FISHER & PAYKEL HEALTHCARE LIMITED||JOHNSON, Chelsea Erin|
A patient interface includes a first body that rests on a first portion of a patient's face, a second body that rests on a second portion of the patient's face, and a bridge linking the first and second bodies. The patient interface includes an attachment structure that couples with a complementary fixation structure positioned on the patient's face to secure the patient interface to the patient's face. The complementary fixation structure can be configured to assist in retaining a feeding tube in position relative to the patient's face or to the patient interface.
WO/2016/159787 A USER INTERFACE FOR SUPPLYING GASES TO AN AIRWAY||WO||06.10.2016|
||PCT/NZ2016/050054||FISHER & PAYKEL HEALTHCARE LIMITED||BARRACLOUGH, Michael Robert|
A user interface convertible between a nasal configuration and an oral configuration. The user interface has a nasal cannula and a mouthpiece. The nasal cannula has a body portion and at least one prong extending from the body portion, the prong being adapted to direct a flow of gas into a nare of a user's nose. The mouthpiece is adapted to engage the mouth of the patient and direct a flow of gas into a user's mouth. In the nasal configuration the prong of the nasal cannula is adapted to direct a flow of gases into a nare of the patient. In the oral configuration, the nasal cannula is engaged with the mouthpiece such that a gases flow is provided to at least the mouth of the user.
