Abstract:With the advent of the CCATTs a need exists for monitoring not only the vital sign information generated by a Propaq monitor but for additional hemodynamic and neurologic data to complement the Propaq data, especially in the event that the patient becomes destabilized during transport. Following… more
Abstract:The objective of this proposal is develop a concept for embedded peer-to-peer human/robot interaction that will allow a robot to work side-by-side with a person or a group of people in contrast to more traditional deployments of robotic hardware which keep the robots and humans very far from each… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the major cause of irreversible loss of vision in the adult population. AMD can be classified into the dry form and the wet form. The dry form involves apoptotic changes in
the photoreceptor cells or the retinal… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The average person in the U.S. contains detectable levels of more than 100 industrial compounds, pollutants, and chemicals, but predicting the relative risk of this exposure, especially over time, is challenging (US CDC

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
