  1. MINIATURIZED HEMO-AND PERITONEAL DIALYSIS MACHINE

    SBC: ASH ACCESS TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH PROJECT IS TO PRODUCE A PORTABLE, MINIATURIZED DIALYSIS MACHINE WHICH IS SIMPLE, SAFE, AND SYMPTOM-FREE IN OPERATION. THIS DIALYSIS MACHINE SHOULD ALLOW THE AVERAGE HEMO-OR PERITONEAL DIALYSIS PATIENT TO PERFORM DIALYSIS BY HIMSELF AT HOME, UNASSISTED. THE MACHINE WILL BE SMALL (12 LBS.), PORTABLE, AND TOTALLY SELF-CONTAINED (WITHOUT NEED FOR CONNECTION TO WATER SUPP ...

  2. ANGULATION MECHANISM FOR CATHETERS AND ANGIOSCOPES

    SBC: Cri Ltd            Topic: N/A

    MEDICAL SCIENCE HAS PROGRESSED TO THE POINT THAT CATHETERS AND ANGIOSCOPES CAN BE USED FOR DIRECT VISUALIZATION OF THE INTERIOR SURFACES OF THE HEART AND CORONARIES. THE PRIMARY HINDRANCE TO FURTHER PROGRESS IN THIS FIELD IS THE LACK OF A MINIATURIZED ANGULATION SYSTEM. THE PROPOSED CONCEPT SUGGESTS THAT PROPRIETARY MATERIALS BE INCORPORATED INTO THE TIP OF A CATHETER OR ANGIOSCOPE TO MAKE THEM MA ...

  5. ADIABATIC WANKEL TYPE ROTARY ENGINES

    SBC: ADIABATICS INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF R & D WORK HAS BEEN DONE FOR THE WANKEL ROTARY ENGINE APPLICATION TO AUTOMOBILES, PLANES, ETC. RESULTING IN SIGNIFICANT PROGRESS. THE PERFORMANCE, RELIABILITY AND DURABILITY THAT THE WANKEL HAS DEMONSTRATED, HOWEVER, FALLS SHORT OF THE POPULAR DIESEL ENGINE. THE ADIABATIC, TURBOCOMPOUND CONCEPT THAT HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED FOR THE DIESEL IS THOUGHT TO BE MORE BENEFICIAL TO T ...

  6. AN ANIMAL DEVELOPMENT HABITAT FOR SPACE BIOLOGY

    SBC: STAR ENTERPRISES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT LIFE-SUPPORT SYSTEMS FOR EXPERIMENTAL ANIMALS CANNOT BE USED FOR DEVELOPMENTAL STUDIES OF ANIMALS IN SPACE. AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO THE DESIGN OF AN ANIMAL DEVELOPMENT HABITAT, COMPATIBLE WITH THE MIDDECK LOCKERS OF THE SPACE SHUTTLE, IS BASED ON STUDIES OF NATURALLY-OCCURRING MATERNAL BURROWS OF RODENTS, SURFACE/VOLUME RATIOS OF DIFFERENT HABITAT CONFIGURATIONS, AND ANALYSIS OF PHYSIOLO ...

  7. A COLOR SCHLIEREN SYSTEM FOR LARGE SCALE LOW-GRAVITY MPS FLUIDS EXPERIMENTS

    SBC: System Specialists, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NUMBER OF LOW GRAVITY MATERIALS PROCESSING EXPERIMENTS SUCH AS CRYSTAL GROWTH STUDIES REQUIRE A SPECIALIZED OPTICAL SYSTEM CAPABLE OF FLOW VISUALIZATION. SEVERAL SUCH SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN BUILT FOR USE IN SPACE AND BALLISTIC AIRCRAFT FLIGHTS, INCLUDING SCHLIEREN SYSTEMS. HOWEVER, NO COLOR SCHLIEREN SYSTEM HAS BEEN DEVELOPED FOR THESE APPLICATIONS. A COLOR SCHLIEREN SYSTEM PRODUCES DATA MORE AMENABL ...

  8. MEASUREMENT OF STATIC ELECTRICITY IN FABRICS TEST METHODOLOGY AND APPARATUS

    SBC: I K E Associates Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS IS A PROJECT FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF TEST METHODS TO DETERMINE THE ELECTROSTATIC PROPERTIES OF TEXTILES WHICH CONTAIN A SMALL PERCENTAGE OF CONDUCTIVE FIBERS. THESE FABRICS ARE INTENDED FOR THE MANUFACTURE OF GARMENTS TO BE WORN IN EXPLOSIVE ENVIRONMENTS AND IN OTHER AREAS WHERE THE ACCUMULATION OF STATIC CHARGES MUST BE MINIMIZED. EXISTING COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE TEST EQUIPMENT WILL BE MODIFIE ...

  9. SOLID-STATE DOPPLER WIND SENSOR

    SBC: Sailcomp Industries Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SAILCOMP INDUSTRIES PROPOSES TO DESIGN AN ACOUSTIC DOPPLER WIND VELOCITY AND DIRECTION SENSING SYSTEM THAT OVERCOMES THE PROBLEM ASSOCIATED WITH PRESENT MECHANICAL DESIGNS. THE ACOUSTIC VELOCIMETER SYSTEM WILL CONSIST OF FOUR PAIRS OF TRANSDUCERS IN FEEDBACK LOOPS. BY MEASURING THE DOPPLER PHASE SHIFT IN EACH OF THE FOUR LEGS OF THE SYSTEM, WIND VELOCITY AND DIRECTION CAN BE CALCULATED. THIS SOLID ...
