  1. A Universal Commuter Railcar Boarding Device for Use by Both Disabled and Able-bodied Individuals Configurable for all U.S. Railstation Platforms

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: N/A

    In Phase I of this SBIR project the proposed commuter railcar loading concept was developed in detail and its operation was simulated in order to demonstrate feasibility and to quantify the reduction in station dwell time compared to other railcar loading operations. Feasibility was demonstrated. The boarding system will enable the loading of all passengers, regardless of mobility, from a wide r ...

  2. Controlling Varroa Mites in the Honey Bee, Apis Mellifera

    SBC: S.A.F.E R&D            Topic: N/A

    Varroa jacobsoni (Oudemans) (=V.destructor) is a parasitic mite of honey bee Apis mellifera (L.), that has had a catastrophic effect in honey bee populations, commercial pollination and the beekeeping industry across the U.S. and worldwide. The objective is to develop alternative methodologies to control Varroa through systemic and contact introduction of essential oils through a unique delivery s ...

  3. Development of the Pain Self-Management Program


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Pain accounts for almost 80% of all of the office visits to physicians each year (National Center for Health Statistics, 1986; Stucky, Gold, & Zhang, 2001; Winterowd, Beck, & Greuner, 2003) and is a major source of disability, accounting for upwards of 700 million lost work days and $100 billion in health care costs per year (Report of the Commission on Evaluat ...

  4. High Precision Bioassay Using Robotics and Statistics

    SBC: LANSKY CONSULTING, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Abstract Cell culture bioassays are often laborious and imprecise even after substantial development efforts. These bioassays are used broadly in the biotechnology industry to measure protein or vaccine products in development and for lot release. Imprecise assays and slow assay development contribute to slow product development. Common practice in cell culture ...

  5. 3D Virtual Slide System for Creation and Analysis of Focusable Digital Slides

    SBC: MICROBRIGHTFIELD, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Rigorous quantification methods of histological specimens have become a keystone in modern neuroscience such as investigations of neurogenesis, stem cell research, neurotransplantation, neurotoxicology, and the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric diseases. Methods in current practice are not conducive to high-throughput studies because they a ...

  6. Integrated Teleconferencing Unit For Home-Based Interactive Exercise For Elders


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Supervised group exercise has been shown to be an effective component for improving balance and preventing falls among elders who have suffered falls or exhibit a fear of falling due to frailty. In a Phase I SBIR study, we developed a model for conducting group exercise programs for elders in their homes via video- conferencing, called tele-based group exercise ...

  7. Handwriting Teaching Tool

    SBC: NEUROSCRIPT, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We will develop a system both for training efficient handwriting in school children and for scientific testing of hypotheses on handwriting education. Handwriting is the only and most widely learned fine motor skill. The US school system spends $200M per year (our estimate) on handwriting instruction materials. Teachers receive only limited training to teach ha ...

  8. Quality Control Tool for Newborn Screening Blood Samples


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Essentially all newborns in the United States (about 4 million per year) and at least 30 other countries have blood samples obtained on filter paper cards for the purpose of screening for a number of metabolic and genetic diseases. To prevent morbidity, such as brain damage, from metabolic diseases such as phenylketonuria or congenital hypothyroidism, it is cri ...

  9. Noninvasive Home Monitor for Sleep Apnea Testing


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Obstructive sleep apnea affects about 3-4% of the population including children. There is considerable associated morbidity and mortality. In particular there is a strong association with hypertension and cardiac disease. Daytime somnolence leads to increased traffic accidents and decreased worker production. The key diagnostic testing for this condition is ove ...

  10. Non Lethal Vehicle Stopping Technology


    Engineering Science Analysis Corporation (ESA) has developed a new stopping technology that is compact, scalable, and easily deployable. None of the current mechanical vehicle stopping technologies meet the requirements for small, portable highly effective vehiclestopping devices. Mechanical stopping technologies must consider the kinetic energy of the vehicle being stopped. This means a large lar ...
