  1. A USER-FRIENDLY VOICE INTERACTIVE LEARNING AID FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH HANDICAPS (VILAH)

    SBC: Technology International Incorporated of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    MANY INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES WOULD BENEFIT FROM IMPROVED METHODS FOR VOICE INPUT INTO, AND VOICE OUTPUT FROM, MICROCOMPUTERS. THE ADVANTAGES OF COMPUTERIZED VOICE OUTPUT FROM PRINTED MATERIAL FOR BLIND OR VISUALLY IMPAIRED INDIVIDUALS IS OBVIOUS. VERY OFTEN, INDIVIDUALS WITH LANGUAGE-LEARNING DISABILITIES FALL INTO THIS CATEGORY. THEADVANTAGES OF SYNTHESIZED SPEECH IS OBVIOUS FOR INDIVIDUALS ...

  3. PEDIATRIC INTRA-AORTIC BALLOON PUMP

    SBC: Rocky Mountain Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    INTRA-AORTIC BALLOON PUMPING (IABP) HAS BECOME A STANDARD TREATMENT MODALITY FOR CARDIOGENIC SHOCK IN ADULTS BUT HAS BEEN USED ONLY SPARINGLY IN INFANTS. THIS IS DUE IN PART TOTHE LIMITATIONS OF THE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE DRIVE SYSTEMS, WHICH ARE DESIGNED TO MEET THE PHYSIOLOGIC NEEDS OF AN ADULT. A BALLOON PUMP, SPECIFICALLY TAILORED TO THE SMALL VOLUMES AND HIGHER RATES OFTEN SEEN IN PEDIATRIC CASE ...

  4. URINARY INCONTINENCE DEVICE

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A FOUR-ELEMENT FEASIBILITY STUDY IS PROPOSED TO EVALUATE A NOVEL IDEA FOR PROVIDING URINARY BLADDER CONTINENCE TO INCONTINENT INDIVIDUALS, ESPECIALLY THE AGED. THE DEVICE IS A NONSURGICALLY INSERTED FLEXIBLE SEAL. MICTURITION CAN BE INITIATED BY AN EXTERNAL SEAL CONTROLLER. BECAUSE THE DEVICE CAN BE INSERTED INTO THE BLADDER THROUGH A UROCATHETER, SURGERY IS NOT REQUIRED. THE PHASE I FEASIBILITY S ...

  5. ENHANCED CENTRIFICATION DEVICES

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED TO APPLY NOVEL ULTRASOUND TECHNOLOGY TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF IMPROVED CENTRIFUGATION EQUIPMENT. THIS NEW DEVICE WILL USE INCLINED SURFACES IN CONJUNCTION WITH ULTRA-SOUND FORCE FIELDS TO SUBSTANTIALLY INCREASE SEDIMENTATION. BECAUSE THIS EQUIPMENT CAN PRODUCE EQUIVALENT SEPARATION WITH LOWER ACCELERATIONS (LOWER CENTRIFUGE ROTATIONAL VELOC-ITY), DESIGN OF A PRACTICAL CONTINUOUS-FLOW C ...

  6. EVALUATION OF RETROVENOUS MYOCARDIAL DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEM

    SBC: Utah Biomedical Test Labs            Topic: N/A

    THE FEASIBILITY OF RETROVENOUS MYOCARDIAL DRUG DELIVERY (XYLOCAINE) TO TREAT AND CONTROL ARRHYTHMIAS WILL BE TESTED IN SHEEP AFTER CORONARY ARTERY OCCULSION, AND THEN COMPARED TO THE STANDARD INTRAVENOUS ROUTE. ENDPOINTS OF NUMBER AND TYPE OF ARRHYTHMIAS, XYLOCAINE DOSE, PLASMA, AND MYOCARDIAL XYLOCAINE CONCENTRATIONS WILL BE DETERMINED. THE DEMONSTRA-TION OF THE HYPOTHESIS THAT RETROVENOUS MYOCAR ...

  7. DESIGN AND EVALUATION OF A COMPOUND TRACHEAL PROSTHESIS

    SBC: Utah Biomedical Test Labs            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED STUDY IS DESIGNED TO DEVELOP AND EVALUATE A METHOD OF REPLACING THE TRACHEA WITH A COMPOUND PROSTHESIS THAT WILL BE EPITHELIZED AT THE TIME OF IMPLANTATION BY TISSUE CULTURE OF BUCCAL MUCOSA OR A FREE GRAFT OF TRACHEAL MUCOSA. HEALING OF THE CERVICAL TRACHEA TO TWO TYPES OF PROSTHESES WILL BE EVALUATED IN DOGS. BOTH TYPES WILL HAVE A RIGID POLYETHYLENE OUTER LAYER AND A MIDDLE LAYER O ...

  8. A RELIABLE, MECHANICAL CRYOCOOLER FOR 80 K COOLING IN SPACE

    SBC: Alabama Cryogenic Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL COVERS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A 0.25 WATT, 80 K MECHANICAL CRYOCOOLER FOR USE IN SENSOR COOLING IN SPACE. THE CRYOCOOLER WILL USE THE MIKULIN PULSE TUBE CYCLE THAT HAS NO MOVING PARTS IN THE COLD SECTION OF THE CRYOCOOLER. THE ELIMINATION OF COLD MOVING PARTS REMOVES THE MAIN SOURCES OF FAILURE AND OF VIBRATION IN THE CRYOCOOLER. LIFETIMES OF OVER FIVE YEARS SHOULD BE POSSIBLE WITH THIS ...

  9. HIGH SPATIAL RESOLUTION/LARGE FIELD OF VIEW DETECTOR AND DATA HANDLING SYSTEM FOR A SPACE BASED SOLAR VECTOR MAGNETOGRAPH

    SBC: Bgb Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CIVILIAN AND MILITARY SPACECRAFT SYSTEMS, COMMUNICATIONS, DETECTION, TRACKING AND SURVEILLANCE ACTIVITES CAN BE ENDANGERED OR DEGRADED BY SOLAR ACTIVITY. THE SUN INDUCES THESE DISTURBANCES THROUGH MAGNETIC FIELD DISTURBANCES, ELECTROMAGNETIC AND CHARGED PARTICLE IRRADIATION OF THE EARTH'S UPPER ATMOSPHERES. ONE METHOD OF CIRCUMVENTING SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES OF THIS ACTIVITY IS THROUGH SPACE BASEDMON ...

  10. AEROHEATING FLIGHT INSTRUMENTATION

    SBC: Remtech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE CURRENT INVENTORY OF INSTRUMENTS TO MEASURE AERODYNAMIC HEATING DURING SUPERSONIC AND HYPERSONIC FLIGHT OF A SPACE VEHICLE IS EXTREMELY LIMITED. THE EVALUATION OF MUCH OF THEHEAT TRANSFER DATA MEASURED BY SCHMIDT - BOELTER AND GORDON CALORIMETERS HAS POINTED OUT THE LARGE ERRORS INHERENT TO THESE INSTRUMENTS DUE TO A PHENOMENA CALLED THE TEMPERATURE MISMATCH ERROR. THIS ERROR IS BASICALLY CAUS ...
