21. An Advanced Patient Lift and Transfer Device for the Home
Topic: Medical Devices
Published: 10/29/2010
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Ji-Chul Ryu, Tommy Chang, Joshua Johnson, S K Agrawal
Abstract: The Home Lift, Position and Rehabilitation (HLPR) Chair has a unique design and novel capabilities when compared to conventional powered wheelchairs. In addition to mobility, it provides lift and can transfer patients. Even though medical devices are ...

22. Medical Applications of Nano-electrotechnologies: Challenges and Concerns for Technology Roadmaps, International Standards and Measurements
Topic: Medical Devices
Published: 9/23/2010
Author: Herbert S Bennett
Abstract: This paper presents reasons why standards are important for medical applications of nano-electrotechnologies and summarizes ongoing consensus-based international technology roadmapping and standards activities. It gives key results from a recent int ...

23. Predicting Microstructure Development During Casting of Drug Eluting Coatings
Topic: Medical Devices
Published: 9/19/2010
Authors: David M. Saylor, Jonathan E Guyer, Daniel Wheeler, James A Warren
Abstract: We have devised a novel diffuse interface formulation to model the development of chem- ical and physical inhomogeneities, i.e. microstructure, during the process of casting drug eluting coatings. These inhomogeneities, which depend on the ...

24. Microfluidic Based Contactless DielectrophoreticDevice: Modeling and Analysis
Topic: Medical Devices
Published: 9/1/2010
Authors: Saugandhika Minnikanti, Darwin R Reyes-Hernandez, Ruben Claudio Aguilar, Joseph Pancrazio, Michael Gaitan, Nathalia Peixoto
Abstract: While there have been many attempts at patterning cells onto substrates, a reliable method for trapping cell clusters and forming cell arrays in a predefined geometry remains to be demonstrated. We intend to develop a multielectrode array platfor ...

25. Static and Dynamic Stability Performance Measurements of the Home Lift, Position and Rehabilitation (HLPR) Chair/Forklift
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7667
Topic: Medical Devices
Published: 3/3/2010
Authors: Joshua Johnson, Roger V Bostelman
Abstract: The Home Lift, Position and Rehabilitation (HLPR) Chair, developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), has unique capabilities and a unique shape as compared to conventional wheelchairs and powered chairs. The evaluation of ...

26. Microfabricated multispectral MRI agents: a brief overview
Topic: Medical Devices
Published: 9/3/2009
Author: Gary Zabow
Abstract: This paper provides an introductory overview on recent top-down microfabricated, as opposed to traditional bottom-up chemically synthesized, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agents. As a specific example of the enhanced agent functionality ...
