  1. The Intelligent Brace: A Compliance Monitoring System for Scoliosis

    SBC: Liberating Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Scoliosis, a condition where there is lateral curvature of the spine, affects an estimated 6 million people in the United States. There is widespread use of bracing for treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, and recent studies have begun documenting its efficacy. These studies have indicated that user compliance is a large, yet largely unquantified, factor in successful outcomes. There are ...

  2. Therapeutic Intermittent Compression Socket

    SBC: Liberating Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this project is to develop a device that provides rapid intermittent compression to the residual limb of amputees that do not have good blood flow in their limbs. The device will be built into the prosthetic socket to provide the user with portable therapy throughout the day, which will free the user from being confined to a chair for up to six hours each day to receive the prescrib ...

  3. Socrative Learning Network

    SBC: Socrative Inc            Topic: N/A

    The project team is developing a prototype of the Socrative Learning Network, a website for teachers to share information to guide instructional practice. The website will support Socrative’s existing 600,000 registered teachers in creating, sharing, searching, and filtering assessments by content, grade, or user, with a mechanism for commentingedu on and editing questions. Pilot research in Pha ...

  5. Oral vaccine delivery of recombinant subunit vaccines for animal diseases

    SBC: VST LLC            Topic: HSB0141002

    Wildlife are a reservoir of diseases affecting both humans and domestic animals. These wildlife reservoirs represent a potential threat to public health, serving as a continuous and difficult to eradicate source of infection for zoonotic diseases, but may also represent a significant economic threat to US agriculture. In particular, wild ruminants including white-tail deer may harbor vector-bo ...

  6. Low-Cost Radiation Detection Using a Smart Phone

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: HSB0141006

    Accurate high-performance, low-cost handheld devices are needed by law enforcement and first responders for the detection, identification, classification and reporting of radioactive materials. The goal of this program is to produce a compact, low-power radiation identifier that costs less than $500 to make and communicates with a smartphone or tablet for computational analysis. CapeSym will lever ...

  7. Smartphone Enabled Spectroscopic Gamma-Neutron Radiation Sensor

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB0141006

    RMD is proposing the development of Smart-Phone Enabled Radionuclide Identifier (SERI), a new detection instrument designed to take full advantage of smartphone / tablet technology. The hardware platform will include a new advanced scintillator that will provide both high gamma-ray efficiency and spectroscopic performance, but also provide high neutron efficiency. The unit will communicate wireles ...

  8. Detection of Counterfeit Commodity Goods

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: HSB0132005

    In the Phase I program, TIAX LLC developed a detection methodology that was able to measure significant differences between pairs of counterfeit and authentic products in four different product categories. Establishing the proof-of-concept of this technique creates the potential for a new detection methodology that can be utilized at a port of entry by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to i ...

  9. Autonomous Detection and Healing of Silent Vulnerabilities

    SBC: BlueRISC Inc            Topic: HSB0142002

    BlueRISC's proposed solution provides a fundamentally new approach to enable autonomous detection of exploitation attempts as well as healing of silent vulnerabilities. It follows a hybrid approach consisting of (i) new static silent vulnerability point and associated path pre-characterization concepts, and (ii) the insertion of minimal and low-overhead runtime support enabled by the vulnerability ...

  10. Laser Exposure Measurement Device

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: HSB0142004

    The widespread use and deployment of laser systems has led to the need for laser exposure measurement systems that operate over wide spectral range and provide sufficient dynamic range to measure exposure relative to maximum permissible exposure (MPE) limits and establish normal hazard zones. OPTRA, Inc. proposes a solution based on the complementary combination of CMOS readout integrated circuit ...
