  2. SBIR Phase I: A SWING-ASSIST KNEE PROSTHESIS FOR INCREASING MOBILITY IN TRANSFEMORAL AMPUTEES

    SBC: Synchro Motion LLC            Topic: MD

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is to make walking both safer and easier for transfemoral amputees. Falling and fear of falling are pervasive in this population. Transfemoral amputees fall at a rate approximately 200 times that of healthy age-matched individuals, and they seek medical attention from falls at the same rate as ...

  6. The Development of a Stabilized SEI Layer for Si-Containing Lithium Ion Battery Anodes

    SBC: Edward Buiel Consulting            Topic: 13a

    This project focuses on the development of new lithium ion battery (LIB) electrolyte/cathode combinations that enable stabilized solid electrolyte interphases (SEI) on Si- based materials. This effort focuses on negative electrodes combining synthetic graphite and Si- based materials, where Si contributes at least 30% of the reversible capacity of the electrode. This effort will result in signific ...

  7. Pulsating Heat Pipes for Particle Accelerator Magnet Systems

    SBC: Cryomagnetics, Inc.            Topic: 29d

    Many modern superconducting magnets, such as those used in advanced particle accelerators, small scale fusion reactors, medical systems and basic magnetic research are cooled to their low operating temperature by contact with a refrigerator. It is frequently a challenge for designers to cool these large magnets uniformly due to thermal gradients that occur at cryogenic temperature. Systems experie ...
