Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/01/96 - 08/31/99

DESCRIPTION: (Adapted from the applicant's abstract) The long term objective is to provide an inexpensive device that rapidly measures the body density (in air) of adults so that a quantitative degree of obesity (body fat-fraction) may be deduced. Such routine measurements should result in improved weig...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/01/94 - 12/31/97

The long term objective is to quickly and accurately measure infant volume in air so that the deduced rate of increase in lean-body mass can be correlated with the infant diet. Such routine measurements of body density should result in improved diet programs that reduce infant hospital confinement and mortality rate. Known devices for the measu...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 1994
Budget: 01/01/94 - 12/31/94

IT IS IMPORTANT TO BE ABLE TO PREDICT THE FAT CONTENT OF LIVE ANIMALS DESIGNED FOR FOOD. SUCH KNOWLEDGE MAY BE USED TO GUIDE DIET REGIMENS, BREEDING AND SELECTION PROGRAMS DESIGNED TO PRODUCE A LEANER PRODUCT. ONE OF THE BEST KNOWN METHODS OF ESTIMATING THE FAT FRACTION IS BASED ON THE MEASUREMENT OF TOTAL BODY DENSITY (WEIGHT/VOLUME). THE METHO...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 05/15/93 - 12/13/93

DESCRIPTION (Adapted from Applicant's Abstract): The applicants have proposed to develop an inexpensive device that rapidly measures the body density (in air) of non-infant children and adults so that a quantitative degree of obesity (body fat fraction) may be deduced. Such routine measurements should result in improved weight control progr...
