Jeffery B Bowman, Daniel E Hubis, James D Lewis, Stephen C Newman, Richard A Staley: Process for producing a high strength porous polytetrafluoroethylene product having a coarse microstructure. W L Gore & Associates, Finnegan Henderson Farabow Garrett & Dunner, November 13, 1984: US04482516 (212 worldwide citation)

Porous polytetrafluoroethylene materials having high strength and coarse microstructure are produced by densifying the materials after removal of lubricant and then stretching. The term, "coarse," is used to indicate that the nodes are larger, the fibrils are longer, and the effective pore size is l ...

John J Mauz, Richard A Staley: Sequential contraction muscle training device. August 2, 2005: US06923748 (7 worldwide citation)

A training method and device for the lower body providing a mode of exercise that manifests as a functional, closed-kinetic-chain training of the gluteus maximus and the hamstrings in a natural sequential firing pattern. The device construction allows an upright stance so that during exercise the lo ...
