  2. Tools and Materials for Hands-On Climate and Weather Science Education

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The majority of students and educators would probably agree that students are better able to grasp scientific concepts from the use of hands-on activities and other inquiry-based educational practices than from typical lecture problem solving methods. Anasphere, Inc is working to make inquiry based tools and materials for weather and climate education more readily available for students and educat ...

  3. DEVELOPMENT OF A MINIATURIZED ELECTRONIC COMPASS FOR USE IN PROVIDING DIRECTIONAL GUIDANCE TO VISUALLY IMPAIRED INDIVIDUALS

    SBC: Arctos Research            Topic: N/A

    DESIGN AND FABRICATION OF SOLID-STATE DIRECTION-INDICATING APPARATUS, WITH TILT-IMMUNITY, THAT PROVIDES AN AUDIBLE OR TACTILE INTERFACE WITH THE USER. REDUCED SIZE TO ALLOW ENCAPSULATION IN A TYPICAL WALKING CANE. A DEVICE WILL BE DESIGNED THAT WILL PROVIDE A VISUALLY IMPAIRED PERSON WITH AN INDICATION OF HORIZONTAL DIRECTION, WITH RESPECT TO THE EARTH'S MAGNETIC FIELD. THE DEVICE WILLALSO SIGNAL ...

  4. Disability data management for state and local planning.

    SBC: Integrated Research And            Topic: N/A

    Disability is the nation's largest public health issue; with over 35 million Americans experiencing disability and annual disability-related costs exceeding $170 billion. Planning for the efficient and equitable allocations of state and local rehabilitation services has generally been inadequate, however. Geographic information systems (GIS) approaches have the potential to dramatically improve ...

  5. BIOMECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF RECIPROCATING MOTION FOR DIS- ABLED INDIVIDUALS WHILE CYCLING

    SBC: Motion Transfer Cycling            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH BICYCLES HAVE LONG BEEN USED IN THE REHABILITATION OF NEUROMUSCULAR AND MUCULOSKELETAL CONDITIONS FOR BOTH LOW-ER AND UPPER EXTREMITIES, LITTLE RESEARCH HAS BEEN DONE TO INVESTIGATE THE EFFECTS OF THE TRADITIONAL CIRCULAR CRANKINGMOTION ON PATIENT REHABILITATION. RETURNING A PATIENCT TO OPTIMUM FUNCTION REQUIRES A VARIETY OF MEASURES TO INCREASE STRENGTH, RANGE OF MOTION, ENDURANCE (BOTH ...

  6. MenuChoice:Nutrition Program for Community-based Group Homes for Persons with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities

    SBC: GOOD NUTRITION IDEAS, LLC            Topic: 84133S1

    This project develops a nutrition program, MenuChoice©, for community-based group homes for persons with intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD). Adults with IDD experience poorer nutritional health and more nutrition-related secondary conditions than adults without disabilities. These conditions are preventable and modifiable through a safe, healthful diet, but multiple challenges precl ...

  7. Fiber Based Return Signal CO2 Sensing System for Sequestration Site Monitoring

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: D

    A key technology with immediate potential for reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with fossil fuel power plants is carbon sequestration. To ensure successful CO2 sequestration, the ability to monitor leakage from the geologic storage sites and the pipelines delivering the CO2 to those sites is paramount. The goal of this SBIR is to accelerate the development of a low-cost fiber- ...

    SBIR Phase I 2010 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. Hand-Held Sensor for Remotely Mapping Carbon Dioxide Pollution Sources

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: TopicF

    In 2007, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that carbon dioxide (CO2) is a pollutant under the federal Clean Air Act. The ruling allows the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to regulate CO2 emissions. Such regulation will entail monitoring a wide variety of pollution sources, including automobile exhaust systems, industrial emission sources, and carbon sequestration sites. With presently availa ...

    SBIR Phase II 2010 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. Economic Capture of CO2 with Amines and Ionic Liquids Tethered in the Gas Phase

    SBC: INTELLIMET            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this project is to develop CO2 absorption columns with rates of production that will enable CO2 capture for less than $20 per ton of CO2. The research will make use of a nano-composite sorbent material called interstitial “Spiderwebs”TM. The Spiderweb material was conceived to overcome a fundamental kinetic limitation of conventional solid sorbents for molecular and io ...

    SBIR Phase I 2010 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. A NATURAL OAT-DERIVED OIL SPILL DISPERSANT

    SBC: Basic Bio Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    BASIC BIO SYSTEMS, INC., PROPOSES TO INVESTIGATE A NOVEL APPROACH TO OIL SPILL CLEANUP UTILIZING A NATURAL, OAT-DERIVED DISPERSANT. PROTEINACEOUS OAT FRACTIONS DEVELOPED BY BASIC BIO SYSTEMS, INC. HAVE THE ABILITY TO ABSORB SEVERAL TIMES THEIR WEIGHT OF A WIDE RANGE OF COMPOUNDS, INCLUDING HYDROPHOBIC MATERIALS SUCH AS OILS. INADDITION, THESE FRACTIONS CAN FUNCTION AS EFFECTIVE EMULSIFIERS, FORMIN ...
