  1. Size-Selection Aerosol Characterization Instrument

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: G

    Problem Statement: In order to obtain energy independence from conventional sources, there is a significant interest in the production of biogas and“green energy” during wastewater treatment. Due to increased emphasis on sustainability and potential for additional revenue streams, utilities are expected to adopt energy production from digester gas in the near future. Although biogas from tr ...

  2. Fourier Transform Infrared Phase Shift Cavity Ring Down Spectrometer

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: G

    OPTRA has developed a novel approach to phase shift cavity ring down spectroscopy (PS-CRDS) using a Fourier transform infrared (FTlR) modulator to impose the spectrally-dependent amplitude modulation on a broadband JR light source. As with previous PS-CRDS measurements, we excite a resonant cavity with amplitude modulated energy and measure the phase shift of the modulated signal exiting the cavit ...

  3. Development of a field-appropriate biosensor for detecting Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection

    SBC: NANORETE, INC.            Topic: OSD11H05

    Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) that primarily affects the lungs. Approximately one third of the world"s population is latently infected with Mtb and at risk for developing active TB disease. Mtb grows slowly with visible growth appearing on solid media in 3 to 6 weeks. Automated broth systems requires a minimum of 9 days. Currently used rapid diagnostic a ...

  4. Improved Coupling Factor of Personal Cooling Systems

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: OSD11H06

    Aspen Systems Inc. proposes a novel personal cooling system that uses a vapor compression chiller to circulate cooled water through flow channels in a wearable vest to facilitate improved cooling of personnel in high-temperature environments. The system is designed to cycle coolant delivered to various zones within the vest enabling the body surface to vasodilate in between chilled liquid flow. ...

  5. Rehabilitative Technologies that Monitor Metabolic Demands of Prosthetics in Lower Extremity Amputees during Rehabilitation

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: OSD11H07

    With the continued improvements in body armor, and the disturbing increase in explosive offensives in modern combat, more of our wounded soldiers are surviving their injuries and there has been a considerable increase in the military amputee population. Improvements in the prosthetic limb dynamics have outpaced improvements to the fit and comfort of the devices, and so several concerns remain as ...

  6. Rehabilitative Technologies that Monitor Metabolic Demands of Prosthetics in Lower Extremity Amputees during Rehabilitation

    SBC: BioSensics LLC            Topic: OSD11H07

    In this phase I SBIR project, BioSensics will partner with Ranchos Los Amigos Rehabilitation Center to develop, implement and evaluate a novel technology to monitor metabolic demands of energy expenditure during Activity of Daily Living (ADL) in amputees. The proposed technology is based on objective evaluation of the required locomotion and movement of prosthetic foot that will be obtained from t ...

  7. Rehabilitative Technologies that Monitor Metabolic Demands of Prosthetics in Lower Extremity Amputees during Rehabilitation

    SBC: Hstar Technologies            Topic: OSD11H07

    Hstar proposes a real-time wearable amputee rehabilitation monitor (WARM) system. It will enhance amputee rehabilitation process with metabolic cost monitoring, gait analysis, and comfort analysis. It will support users Activities of Daily Living (ADL) and provide physicians, physical therapists and prosthetists important information of lower limb amputees to achieve successful rehabilitation proc ...

  8. Real-time Assessment of Engineered Tissue Viability with Combined Raman SpectroscopyHigh Resolution Optical Imaging

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: OSD11H08

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), in collaboration with the Center for Regenerative Medicine at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), proposes to investigate a multimodal optical imaging and spectroscopy approach for in vitro characterization of engineered tissue constructs. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging will be used for gross assessment of tissue morphology and birefringence properti ...

  9. The Measurement of the Corneal and Scleral Surface for the Purpose of Automating Ocular Surface Prosthetic Fitting

    SBC: EYEdeal SCANNING            Topic: OSD11H09

    The objective of this proposal is to produce an apparatus to automatically measure the corneal and scleral surface to facilitate the manufacture of ocular surface prosthetics with a lens diameter up to 24 millimeters. Prior art attempts to measure surface topology, especially in the bearing region of these large diameter lenses, have failed due to the steep curvature of the sclera. An apparatus ...

  10. Anterior Eye OCT-based Profiler for Automating Ocular Surface Prosthetic Fitting

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: OSD11H09

    The use of a Prosthetic Replacement of the Ocular Surface Environment (PROSE) device is a revolutionary treatment for military patients that have lost their eyelids due to 3rd degree facial burns or for civilians who suffer from a host of corneal diseases. However, custom manual fitting is often a protracted painful, inexact process that require multiple fitting sessions. Training for new practio ...
