  1. ENHANCED DENTAL AMALGAM TRAP

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION: (provided by the applicant) Surveys conducted by municipal wastewater treatment plants across the country have concluded that 10 percent to over 70 percent of the mercury reaching the plants comes from dental offices. These findings, combined with increasingly stringent regulations on mercury discharges, have placed pressure on the dental profession to reduce their discharges of mercu ...

  3. SELF-DISINFECTING CATHETERS

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The overall objective of this multiphase SBIR project is to develop and commercialize an economical and effective urethral catheter that resists biofilm growth and encrustation. Biofilms are communities of microorganisms that form on wetted surfaces when water and nutrients are available. Once formed, cells are continuously released from and recruited to the biofilm, providing a steady stream of p ...

  4. AN INNOVATIVE BODY-POWERED VOLUNTARY-CLOSING PREHENSOR

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Thousands of children and adults in the U.S. suffer from upper-limb deficiencies. Current state-of-the-art prehensors intended to increase upper-limb function do not serve this population well. This Phase II SBIR project addresses that situation by focusing upon optimizing a body-powered voluntary-closing (VC) prehensor offering variable mechanical advantage (VMA) and passive holding-assist. Exten ...

  6. SORBENTS FOR REMOVAL OF ARSENIC AND HEAVY METALS

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In response to the recent Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announcement that affirmed a national standard for maximum arsenic content in drinking water of 10 parts per billion (ppb), ADA Technologies, Inc. is proposing to develop and commercialize a novel, low-cost sorbent for the removal of arsenic and other heavy metals from drinking water. ADA has ...

  7. ELECTRODES AND STIMULATORS FOR STRIAL PRESBYCUSIS

    SBC: ADVANCED COCHLEAR SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In this project, a system for reversing strial hearing loss by increasing endocochlear potential will be constructed and evaluated in vitro. Strial presbycusis is estimated to affect as many as 7 million people in the US. Recent research has shown that when positive current is injected into the scalae media of quiet-aged gerbils, the endocochlear potential is increased and the hearing ...

  8. HIGH-DENSITY LIQUID CRYSTAL POLYMER COCHLEAR ELECTRODES

    SBC: ADVANCED COCHLEAR SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In this project, high-density cochlear electrode arrays will be fabricated utilizing liquid crystal polymer (LCP) a new electronic substrate material with mechanical and electrical properties potentially well suited for advanced array fabrication and implantation. Advanced multi-layer circuit fabrication techniques incorporating blind and through-hole UV laser ...

  10. LUNG DRUG DELIVERY WITH CARBON DIOXIDE AEROSOL INHALERS

    SBC: AEROPHASE INC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (Applicant's abstract): Asthma is one of the most common and costly illnesses in the United States, and drug formulation delivered via metered inhalers (MDIs) represent the primary treatment method for asthma sufferers. A key current issue in this arena is that the chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) propellants traditionally used in MDIs are being phased out by the government due to their high o ...
