Professor with tenure of neurology in psychiatry, department of psychiatry and behavioral sciences and (by courtesy) Neurology, Stanford university school of medicine in 1985 .Guest Professor at the University of Marburg (Germany) and recipient of an Humbolt grant in 1987-1988.Academic carreer : He was nominated « Maitre de Recherche » (tenure) in L’Institut National de la Sante et Recherche Medical (INSERM) in Paris (France) in 1977.
In particular, the present invention relates to truss systems that are built up from six-way box connectors. Description of Related Art Trusses are widely used to support overhead lighting units powered by electrical power cords dressed along the truss raceways.
Truss systems for stages and tradeshow floors are available in I-beam, triangle, and square truss sections made from aluminum or steel.
They also need to be light and portable, and rugged enough to keep looking good and resist breaking and damage.
Truss systems that can snap together and require no tools for assembly and disassembly are especially desirable.
Briefly, a modular truss system embodiment of the present invention includes six-way box connectors to which truss beams can be bolted and pinned in a wide variety of configurations to any of the six identical faces.
Each box connector face and each truss beam end is fitted with matching center holes for bolts and spring pin arrangements on the peripheral corners.
His current research is to find the different risk factors that lead to occurrence of sleep-disordered-breathing and obstructive-sleep-apnea, with the goal of preventive occurrence of the syndrome by treating early the risks factors.
He is internationally involved in the creation of "Sleep Medicine" as a medical field throughout the world Cardio-respiratory dysfunction during sleep; SIDS and, sleep apnea; narcolepsy and daytime somnolence; the relationship of, sleep to accidents, aging, dementia and Alzheimer's Disease.
The above and still further objects, features, and advantages of the present invention will become apparent upon consideration of the following detailed description of specific embodiments thereof, especially when taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings.
represents a modular truss system embodiment of the present invention, and is referred to herein by the general reference numeral 100.
These make aligning and attaching the truss beams and box connectors to one another a quick and simple job and does not require any tools.
