No Longer Pending

So a piece of junk mail that I got today informed me that I have been granted a patent.  And it turns out to be true.  It's a little odd/sad that the way I find out is through junk mail, but hey, as long as I do find out.

Read it and weep:  (seriously, patents are painfully boring)

Electro-hydraulically powered lift ambulance cot

Note that the filing date is in 2005, so this is a solid 6+ years in the making.  Heck, I haven't even been with the company for 3 years.  And I'm a co-inventor; I don't mean for this to sound like it is exclusively my work.  It was a good team effort.

The design described in this patent would eventually become the PowerFlexx.
