  2. A KNOWLEDGE-BASED TUTORING SYSTEM WITH STUDENT-DRIVER, GRAPHIC INTERFACE, FOR TEACHING ARABIC ON MICROCOMPUTER

    SBC: New Sage            Topic: N/A

    NEW SAGE WILL DEVELOP SOFTWARE THAT CAN TEACH BEGINNING ARABIC (AND PERSIAN) SKILLS. THE SYSTEM WILL BE A RESPONSIVE, STUDENT-DRIVEN, INTERACTIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT USING MACINTOSH COMPUTERS. KEY TO THE DESIGN IS THE INTEGRATION OF SEVERAL KNOWLEDGE BASES INTO THE INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN: 1) A RICH (BUT NOT LARGE) DICTIONARY -- FOR KNOWLEDGE OF WORD MEANINGS, 2) LINGUISTIC RULES -- FOR GENERATION A ...

  3. A PERSONAL COMPUTER CONTROLLER FOR MULTI-HANDICAPPED BLIND INDIVIDUALS

    SBC: WESTEST ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    PERSONAL COMPUTERS ARE NORMALLY CONTROLLED BY ENTERING DATA INTO A KEYBOARD AND MONITORING THE RESULTS ON A VIDEO TERMINAL. MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED CANNOTUSE KEYBOARDS AND VIDEO TERMINALS ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR THE BLIND. EXISTING DEVICES WHICH HELP THE HANDICAPPED OVERCOMETHESE BARRIERS ARE EITHER SLOW AND CUMBERSOME OR USE CUSTOM SOFTWARE WHICH RESTRICTS THEIR USE. WESTEST ENGIN ...

  4. SOLID-STATE CLINICAL GAS ANALYZER

    SBC: Albion Instruments            Topic: N/A

    A SMALLER, LIGHTER, MORE EFFICIENT, AND MORE RELIABLE CLINICAL GAS ANALYZER FOR RESPIRATORY AND ANESTHETIC GAS MONITORING IS NEEDED. EXISTING LASER RAMAN-BASED INSTRUMENTATION USES A LARGE, HEAVY, AND EXTREMELY INEFFICIENT (0.1 PERCENT) ARGON ION LASER WITH AN INTRACAVITY GAS CELL. THE LONG-TERM OBJECTIVE OF THIS STUDYIS TO IMPLEMENT A SOLID-STATE ALTERNATIVE TO THE EXISTING ION LASER. SUCH A LASE ...

  6. FLOW/STERIC FFF--A NEW METHOD FOR CELL SEPARATIONS

    SBC: Fffractionation, Llc.            Topic: N/A

    FLOW/STERIC FIELD-FLOW FRACTIONATION (FLOW/STFFF) IS A RECENTLY DEVELOPED METHOD WITH EXTRAORDINARY SPEED AND RESOLVING POWER DESIGNED TO SEPARATE PARTICULATE MATERIALS FALLING ROUGHLY IN THE 1 TO 100 MUM PARTICLE DIAMETER RANGE. THE OBJECT OF THIS PROJECT IS TO EXAMINE THE POTENTIAL OF CONVERTING THIS RESEARCH FINDING INTO A FAST AND RELIABLE TOOL FOR THE FRACTIONATION AND CHARACTERIZATIONOF CELL ...

  7. FEASIBILITY STUDY TO PRODUCE HETEROGENOUS IMMUNOGLOBULIN

    SBC: Hastings Labs            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH WILL DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF PRODUCING IMMUNOGLOBULINS AGAINST THE OPPORTUNISTIC ENTERIC INFECTIONSOF HIV-INFECTED NEONATES UTILIZING THE COLOSTRUM FROM HYPERIMMUNIZED COWS OR THE EGG YOLK IMMUNOGLOBULINS AVAILABLE FROM HYPERIMMUNIZED CHICKENS. THESE TWO COMMON DOMESTIC ANIMALS WOULD BE IMMUNIZED WITH THE LABORATORY ISOLATES FROM A MEDICAL CENTER TREATING AIDS NEONATES. HETEROGE ...

  8. TISSUE PERFUSION MONITOR FOR FREE-TISSUE TRANSFER

    SBC: MEDICAL PHYSICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    FREE TISSUE TRANSFER HAS REVOLUTIONIZED MANY AREAS OF RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY. AS FREE TISSUE TRANSFER IS NOW BEING DONE ROUTINELY AT INSTITUTIONS WHERE INEXPERIENCED STAFF ARE UNABLE TO ADEQUATELY MONITOR VIABILITY, THE NEED FOR A RELIABLE METHOD TO MONITOR THE PATENCY OF MICROVASCULAR ANASTOMOSES HAS BECOME INCREASINGLY EVIDENT. ACCURATE MONITORING OF BLOOD FLOW DURING AND AFTER SURGERY IS ESSENT ...

  9. INVERSION OF LAPLACE TRANSFORMS ON MICROCOMPUTERS

    SBC: Micromath Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE APPLICATION OF PHYSICAL-CHEMICAL PRINCIPLES TO BIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS FREQUENTLY LEADS TO SITUATIONS IN WHICH THE QUANTITATIVE TREATMENT OF CONCEPTUALLY SIMPLE MODELS IS CONFOUNDED BY THE COMPLEXITY OF THE SYSTEM. SUCH IS THE CASE, FOR EXAMPLE, IN THE STUDY OF THE PERMEATION (AND POSSIBLE CONCURRENT METABOLISM) OF DRUGS THROUGH COMPLEX BIOLOGICAL MEMBRANES, THE PHYSIOLOGICAL MODELING OF THE DISTRI ...

  10. DYNAMIC ELECTRON ARC COLLIMATOR FOR RADIATION THERAPY

    SBC: Parvus Corpon            Topic: N/A

    RECENT INNOVATIONS IN MOTION-CONTROL TECHNOLOGY HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO PROVIDE THE VIABLE DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF A PORTABLE, LIGHTWEIGHT, COMPUTER-CONTROLLED MULTIVANE COLLIMATOR THAT CAN BE USED SIMPLY AND EASILY IN TYPICAL RADIATION THERAPY FACILITIES, AS A THERAPY MACHINE ACCESSORY, TO PROVIDE IMPROVED DOSE UNIFORMITY IN ELECTRON ARC THERAPY. A PROTOTYPE MULTIVANE COLLIMATOR HAS BEEN COMPLETE ...
