  5. A Socket-Suspension Monitoring System for Lower Limb Amputees with Roll-on Liners

    SBC: Assist Equipment Development, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The focus of this project is to develop a low-cost, wearable, easy to use, continuous socket/suspension monitoring system (SSMS) that tracks the relative displacement between the amputees’ residual limb and their socket or pistoning through the use of magnetic sensors. To do this, the project (1) designs and constructs the SSMS and demonstrates its capability through a bench top experiment; (2) ...

  7. Retrofittable and Transparent Super-Insulator for Single-Pane Windows

    SBC: NanoSD, Inc.            Topic: DE-FOA-0001429

    NanoSD, Inc. with its partners will develop a transparent, nanostructured thermally insulating film that can be applied to existing single-pane windows to reduce heat loss. To produce the nanostructured film, the team will create hollow ceramic or polymer nanobubbles and consolidate them into a dense lattice structure using heat and compression. Because it is mostly air, the resulting nanobubble s ...
