  1. Utility Arm ¿An Upper Limb Prosthesis

    SBC: MOTION CONTROL, INC            Topic: N/A

    Motion Control will develop an innovative body-powered (BP) upper extremity (UE) prosthetic system which offers substantial improvements in functionality, comfort, and aesthetics, for persons with UE deficiencies at all levels. This “Utility Arm” system will in¬crease independence and work capabilities for users of arm prostheses, with less com-plexity than a full myoelectric arm s ...

  2. New Electro-Hydraulic Foot Prosthesis.

    SBC: MOTION CONTROL, INC            Topic: N/A

    Motion Control, Inc. (MCI) will complete an electronic-controlled version of the advanced hydraulic foot/ankle which will demonstrate the feasibility of the automatic adjustment of resistance throughout the range of motion.  The advanced MCI Foot, especially the automatic controlled version, is expected to contribute to the function of the prosthesis wearer, resulting in advanced and more nat ...

  3. Haptic Feedback Improvements for Prostheses

    SBC: Orthocare Innovations LLC            Topic: N/A

    Haptic feedback improvements for prostheses tactile sensory feedback or haptic is a fundamental element of life.  While vital for interaction with the outside world, current prostheses do not have a mechanism to convey sensory information, making it difficult for users to feel connected to their environments through their prostheses, and to engage in active grasping and exploration tasks.&nbs ...

  4. A virtual launchpad for learning at higher speeds

    SBC: Current Conceptions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The overall goal is to develop a Virtual Learning LaunchPad prototype and to compare the learning by students viewing this prototype with a traditional video lecture. The Virtual Learning LaunchPad will merge six delivery methods to greatly compress delivery time of a complex concept in reproductive science. The technologies incorporated will be: 3-dimensional anatomical reconstructions, step-an ...

  5. From Assessment to Action

    SBC: Facet Innovation            Topic: N/A

    Diagnostic assessment is a technique in which a student’s answers to questions are used to identify appropriate further instructional actions, rather than solely to evaluate educational attainment. The technique is difficult to use because the average teacher has difficulty implementing it successfully. We will build an online diagnostic assessment system and use it to offer a unit-level diagnos ...

  6. Wireless EMG and Improved Mounting System

    SBC: MOTION CONTROL, INC            Topic: N/A

    The project focuses on the development of a small, water-proof elecromyographic (EMG) sensor for a myoelectric arm prosthesis that transmits by a wireless link and can be easily and consistently installed over any muscle site. The wireless link eliminates wires and connectors inside the arm socket that can be bulky and unreliable due to corrosion and breakage of wires representing a significant i ...

  7. Wireless EMG Preamp and Improved Mounting System

    SBC: MOTION CONTROL, INC            Topic: N/A

    Develops a small waterproof Warless EMG Preamp sensor for myoelectric arm prostheses that transmits a digital signal via a wireless link eliminating many of the wires and connectors associated with arm prostheses and allowing connection to modern rollon gel type liners

  8. THE READY COURSE, AN INTERACTIVE VIDEODISC ASSISTED READING PROGRAM

    SBC: Applied Interactive Tech            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1988 Department of Education
  9. 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 ...

  10. VIDEODISC AND COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY IN BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT TRAINING

    SBC: VIDEODISCOVERY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROJECT TESTS THE MERIT AND FEASIBILITY OF USING INTER- ACTIVE VIDEODISCS TO TRAIN TEACHERS, AND SUPPORT PERSONNEL FOR BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT IN THE CLASSROOM AND TO DIRECTLY TRAIN STUDENTS AND PARENTS FOR BEHAVIORAL CONTROL. CONTROL-LING STUDENT BEHAVIOR IS OF THE HIGHEST PRIORITY IN MOST SCHOOLS. THE SEATTLE SCHOOL DISTRICT HAS ENDORSED THIS PROJECT AND IS SUPPORTING BOTH PRODUCTION AND TESTING ...
