Abstract

There is provided an apparatus and method for establishing a connection between two bodies, the apparatus comprising two bodies. The first body defines a face including a plurality of connection points, some of which are connected to a source and some of which are connected to a sink. The second body defines a face including a plurality of connection points, each of which is connected to a positive or high pressure terminal via a substantially one-way valve in the forward direction and is simultaneously connected to a negative or low pressure terminal via a substantially one-way valve in the reverse direction. The face of the first body can be brought into contact with the face of the second body in a multiplicity of different relative positions, in each of which a connection is established between the two bodies with at least one of the source-connected connection points on the first body in contact with a connection point on the second body, and at least one of the sink-connected connection points on the first body in contact with another connection point on the second body.
