  2. Sports Center Unlimited

    SBC: ACADEMIC SOFTWARE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Sports Center Unlimited will be a simulated sports/leisure activity exploration program for youths with physical disabilities. The Phase I prototype will run on a Macintosh using QuickTime multi-media with sound, color, video, animation, and user interaction. As one of many animated characters, each with differing disabilities, the user explores the Sports Center Unlimited with the assistance of a ...

  3. Long-Life Mobile Cryogenic Air Supply with Cooling

    SBC: Aerospace Design & Development, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The use of supercritical cryogenic storage of air will permit the economical supply of air for personnel engaged activities which require isolation from the environment. The supercritical storage allows delivery of the air in any attitude and prevents oxygen enrichment either in storage or in use. Because the air storage is at cryogenic temperature (- 180 degrees C), there is cooling available for ...

  4. Breast Cancer Quality Assessment Expert System

    SBC: Applied Knowledge Institute,            Topic: N/A

    The goal is to develop a knowledge-based expert management system to deliver cost-effective quality medical care. This system will allow health care providers to plan and allocate services within the existing budgeting and economic constraints. The methodology consists of 1) building an integrated database of clinical and management information, 2) designing the knowledge representation used in th ...

  5. Handheld, Tactual Output, Reading and Writing Aid

    SBC: Ascent Technology            Topic: N/A

    The research will investigate a uniquely configured optical to tactile converter which packages both the optical camera and a miniaturized vibrotactile display into a compact handheld configuration. The increased haptic awareness afforded to the user by this configuration is expected to improve the uniformity of text presentation to the sensing fingertip and may improve the performance and utility ...

  6. Parameterization of Kinesthetic Output Mobility Aid

    SBC: Ascent Technology            Topic: N/A

    This research will investigate a blind mobility aid which uses kinesthetic feedback to intuitively communicate to the user the range and texture of surfaces in the extended environment. The handheld device will contain an infrared optical ranging module with the range output. The sensitivity and directivity of the device will allow users to feel textural aspects as small as one centimeter and spat ...

  7. Measurement of Boron Stable Isotopes for Cancer Therapy

    SBC: BIOCHEMANALYSIS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Development of novel boronated compounds and use of epithermal neutrons has now generated much interest in 10B-boron capture neutron therapy of different tumors. However, no suitable methods exist that allow investigation of their pharmacokinetics in human subjects or in vivo measurement of the ratio of intracellu- lar/extracellular 10B at the time of irradiation. A new approach based on the use o ...

  8. Recording the Physiology of the Nonpregnant Uterus

    SBC: Bio-feedback Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The long term objective is to develop a multichannel, diagnostic instrumentation system for recording the physiology of the non-pregnant human uterus. The current prototype can simultaneously record combinations of six physiologic parameters: electrical activity at the cervix, electrical activity inside the uterus, pressure changes inside the uterus, mean flow velocity in a uterine artery, subject ...

  9. INTERACTIVE MEDICAL IMAGE ANALYSIS WORKSTATION

    SBC: BIO-IMAGING RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE RESULT OF THIS PHASE I EFFORT WILL BE A DETAILED PLAN TO SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASE THE SPEED AND, HENCE, THE INTERACTIVITY OF ANALYZE, AN ALREADY USEFUL MEDICAL IMAGE ANALYSIS SYSTEM. ANALYZE IS A SOFTWARE SYSTEM FOR THE ANALYSIS OF MEDICAL IMAGES, DEVELOPED AT MAYO FOUNDATION'S BIOTECHNOLOGY COMPUTER RESOURCE. INCREASED PERFORMANCE WILL BE ACHIEVED BY IMPLEMENTING SELECTED PORTIONS OF ANALYZE ON ...

  10. Moldable MRI Coil for Breast Imaging

    SBC: BIO-IMAGING RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We will develop a new construction method for receiver coils for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the human breast. These coils will be custom-shaped to individual patients in a quick, economical, and comfortable manner. Since each structure fits the individual patient closely, the coil system permits quantitatively repeatable imaging with accurately reproducible geometry. The structure for sur ...
