*** Pennsylvania Inventor Develops Patent for Ladder System with Integrated Air Bags at Base ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 11 -- John F. Balzano, Altoona, Pa., has developed a patent (8,322,492) for a "ladder system with integrated air bags at base." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "An airbag ladder system featuring a ladder and an airbag housing disposed on the side panel of the ladder at the bottom end. One or more airbags are temporarily housed in the airbag housing. When deployed, the airbags surrounds the bottom area of the ladder. Each airbag is connected to an inflation component, which functions to inflate the airbags when activated. The inflation component is operatively connected to a sensor. Latches are disposed along the side panel of the ladder. A tether extending from the airbag housing can be threaded through the latches as a user ascends the ladder. The tether is clipped to a user's clothing. The tether is connected to the sensor such that when the tether is pulled quickly if a user falls from the ladder the sensor activates the inflation component effectively inflating the airbags."

*** Pennsylvania Inventor Develops Patent for Direct Conversion X-ray Imaging Device with Strip Electrodes ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 11 -- Denny L. Lee, West Chester, Pa., has developed a patent (8,324,582) for "direct conversion X-ray imaging device with strip electrodes." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A flat panel X-ray imager using an amorphous selenium detector which uses a dielectric layer within the X-ray conversion layer to form an interface between the X-ray conversion layer and the high voltage bias electrode. To accomplish the removal of trapped counter charges at the dielectric/selenium layer, a plurality of discrete or strip electrodes are provided in contact with the dielectric layer and which are electrically coupled into distinct groups. During X-ray exposure, a high bias voltage is applied to all groups of strip electrodes. Following X-ray exposure and image readout, the groups of strip electrodes are energized using a plurality of differently-phased energization signals to drive trapped counter charges toward "gutter" strip electrodes at the sides of the detector. A second embodiment of the flat panel X-ray imager includes sandwiching the discrete electrodes in a dielectric layer applied against the selenium layer and including a continuous electrode on the opposite side of the dielectric layer. Application of a high voltage bias to the continuous electrode results in an electric field in the selenium layer that is smoothed during X-ray acquisition. Discrete electrode energization to drive trapped counter charges to the gutter electrodes occurs while the high voltage bias is present." The patent application was filed on July 15, 2010 (12/837,115).
