  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  8. COMPOSITE, HOLLOW FIBER MEMBRANE OXYGENATION DEVICE

    SBC: ANATRACE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE ACCEPTANCE OF EXTRACORPOREAL OXYGENATION DEVICES BASED ON GAS TRANSFER THROUGH A MEMBRANE WILL DEPEND TO A LARGE EXTENT ON THE AVAILABILITY OF SIMPLER, EASIER TO USE, SAFER,AND LOWERCOST DEVICES. OXYGENATORS USING MICROPOROUS HOLLOWFIBERS HAVE COME INTO WIDER USE THE LAST FIVE YEARS. THEY PRESENT MORE MEMBRANE SURFACE TO BLOOD AND GAS PHASES FOR EQUIVALENT VOLUME AND DO NOT REQUIRE A SUPPLEMEN ...

  9. GLYCATED HEMOGLOBIN BY AUTOMATED AFFINITY CHROMATOGRAPHY

    SBC: ANATRACE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    CLASSICAL ASSAYS FOR DETERMINING BLOOD AND URINE GLUCOSE HAVE LIMITED VALUE FOR THE MONITORING OF AN INDIVIDUAL'S BLOOD GLUCOSE LEVEL OVER TIME. MEASUREMENT OF GLYCATED HEMOGLOBIN (GHB) IS ALREADY GAINING ACCEPTANCE FOR MANAGEMENT OF PERSONS WITH DIABETES MELLITUS. GHB LEVELS ARE NOT ONLY USEFUL FOR DIAGNOSIS BUT ALSO FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF CARE GOALS AND FOR CARE REINFORCEMENT. IN THE FUTURE, M ...

  10. 3-D SURFACE TEXTURED PLATINUM ELECTRODE/GLUCOSE SENSOR

    SBC: Applied Medical Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROGRAM IS RELATED TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PLATINUM-POLYSTYRENE ELECTRODE WITH TEXTURED SURFACE FOR A SUBCUTANEOUS ELECTROCATALYTIC SENSOR. THE SUBCUTANEOUS SENSOR HAS LOWER RISKS COMPARED TO AN INTRAVENOUS SENSOR, SOIT IS CONSIDERED FOR LONG-TERM MONITORING PURPOSES. IT HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED THAT TEXTURED SURFACES ARE FAVORABLE FOR IMPLANTATION TO THE SOFT TISSUE DUE TO BETTER VASCULARIZATIO ...
