    Can -ing participle and infinitive be placed between the subject and the predicate?

    I understand that "-ed participle" ,when it functions as an adverbial, can be used between the subject and the predicate of a sentence. For instance, "Time, used correctly, is money in the bank."Can -ing participle and infinitive be placed between the subject and the predicate of a sentence when they function as an adverbial? Any reply would be appreciated.
