  2. REAL-TIME, DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING FOR HEARING AIDS

    SBC: Digital Communications Res Inc            Topic: N/A

    SENSORINEURAL HEARING IMPAIRMENTS, IN GENERAL, AND RECRUITMENT OF LOUDNESS, IN PARTICULAR, HAVE NOT BEEN SUCCESSFULLY TREATED WITH CURRENTLY AVAILABLE HEARING AIDS. TO DATE, THESE AIDS MOSTLY AMPLIFY SOUNDS, OFTEN ON A FREQUENCY-DEPENDENT BASIS. ANALOG WIDEBAND AND MULTIBAND AIDS EMPLOYING AMPLITUDE COMPRESSION HAVE MET LIMITED SUCCESS. DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING PROVIDES GREATER FLEXIBILITY AND LE ...

  3. LUMINESCENCE DETECTION REAGENTS FOR PROTEINS

    SBC: Ela Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    ELA TECHNOLOGIES, INC., HAS PRODUCED TWO BIOLUMINESCENT PROTEINS DESIGNATED RECAEQUORIN AND RECLUCIFERASE. THESE PROTEINS PRODUCE LIGHT WITH HIGH EFFICIENCY AND ARE DETECTABLE ON FILM IN THE PICOGRAM RANGE. RECAEQUORIN PRODUCES A FLASH OF LIGHT UPON THE ADDITION OF CALCIUM, AND RECLUCIFERASE PRODUCES A SUSTAINED SIGNAL IN THE PRESENCE OFITS SUBSTRATE, COELENTERATE LUCIFERIN. THIS RESEARCH WILL EVA ...

  4. POLYMERIC MEMBRANE BARRIERS FOR ANIMAL ISOLATION

    SBC: Horizon Micro-environments            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH WILL TEST THE FEASIBILITY OF USING INEXPENSIVE POLYMERIC MEMBRANES TO SERVE AS PASSIVE CONTAMINANT BARRIERS FOR LABORATORY ANIMALS. THEORETICAL CALCULATIONS SHOW THAT THE FLUX OF ANIMAL RESPIRATORY GASES THROUGH POLYMERIC MEMBRANES CAN BE MORE THAN SUFFICIENT TO SUPPORT LIFE FOR ANIMALS IN HERMETICALLY SEALED ENVIRONMENTS. THESE MEMBRANES COULD BE USED TO PROTECT ANIMALS FROM AIRBORN ...

  5. SURGICAL AND EXAMINATION GLOVE TESTING

    SBC: Horizon Micro-environments            Topic: N/A

    THE RELIABILITY OF SURGICAL AND EXAMINATION GLOVES HAS BECOME A MAJOR CONCERN AMONG HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS AS HIV AND OTHER VIRAL DISEASES HAVE SPREAD. CURRENT TESTING REGULATIONS AND METHODS ARE NOT ADEQUATE TO INSURE THE LEVELOF PROTECTION THAT IS NOW BEING DEMANDED BY THE INDUSTRY. THIS RESEARCH WILL TEST THE FEASIBILITY OF A PRODUCTION TESTUSING VOLATILE HALOGENATED COMPOUNDS TO DETECT AND ...

  6. ION BEAM INTEGRATION OF HA COATINGS ON DENTAL IMPLANTS

    SBC: Ionic Atlanta Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROGRAM IS TO IMPROVE CLINICAL LONGEVITY OF ENDOSSEOUS DENTAL IMPLANT SYSTEMS. THIS WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH TREATMENT OF ALUMINA AND TITANIUM DENTAL IMPLANTS WITH A UNIQUE HA COATING PROCESS THAT PRODUCES THIN, HIGHLY ADHERENT, POLYCRYSTALLINE HA FILMS AT ROOM TEMPERATURE. THE HA PROCESS INVOLVES ION BEAM AND ELECTRON-PLASMA TECHNIQUES THAT ARE USED TO INTEGRATE COATING W ...

  7. DIAMOND-LIKE COATINGS FOR BIOMEDICAL PACKAGES

    SBC: Ionic Atlanta Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE INCREASED REPLACEMENT OF COMPLEX SENSORY AND MOTOR FUNCTIONS IN THE DISABLED BY PROSTHETIC DEVICES HAS RESULTEDIN THE USAGE OF VERY SMALL ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS FOR BOTH STIMULATION AND RECORDING. THE ABILITY TO ADDRESS FUNCTIONSAT A NEUROLOGICAL LEVEL OFTEN REQUIRES THE USE OF EXTREMELY SMALL, INDEPENDENTLY ADDRESSABLE ELECTRODES IN THE 1 TO 2 MICRON RANGE. IT IS ADVANTAGEOUS FOR THE ELECTRONI ...

  8. A CLINICAL INFORMATION SYSTEM FOR HOME HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS

    SBC: Lifecare Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    CLINICAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS ARE THE WEAKEST COMPONENT OF SOFTWARE PACKAGES AVAILABLE TO HOME HEALTH AGENCIES. THE GOAL OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO DEVELOP A MODULAR CLINICAL INFORMATION SYSTEM FOR THE COLLECTION, USE, AND REPORTING OF HOME HEALTH PATIENT INFORMATION WITH A UNIVERSAL INTERFACE TO CURRENTLY AVAILABLE HOME HEALTH INFORMATION SYSTEMS. THE POINT OF CARE DATA ENTRY TOOL WILL BE ELECTRONIC SL ...

  9. FROM INTERACTIVE FLIGHT SIMULATOR TO DRIVING SIMULATOR

    SBC: Sintex Corp            Topic: N/A

    DRIVING IS A BEHAVIOR THAT, LIKE FLYING, IS THOUGHT TO BE LARGELY GUIDED BY VISUAL INFORMATION. PUBLIC SAFETY DEMANDSTHAT THIS PRIVILEGE SOMETIMES BE DENIED, POSTPONED, OR REVOKED BECAUSE OF DEFICIENT VISION. UNFORTUNATELY, THE MINIMAL VISUAL REQUIREMENTS FOR DRIVING VARY MARKEDLY ACROSSSTATES. DETERMINING THE MINIMAL REQUIREMENTS FOR DRIVING WILL BECOME INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT AS THE PREVALENCE OF ...
