Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/30/01 - 05/31/03

The goal of this research is to develop a unique respiratory gas analyzer for both oxygen and carbon dioxide, characterized by very fast response, high stability, and significant cost savings. It incorporates new approaches to sensing O2 and CO2 not previously demonstrated in gas analysis. In Phase I, the applicant organization demonstrated pro...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 03/15/99 - 02/14/00

The specific aim of the proposed research is to demonstrate proof-of- concept for a new whole-body indirect calorimeter for the measurement of energy expenditure in infants. The measurement of energy expenditure in infants is important for a number of reasons, including determination of energy requirements in health and disease, the metabolic co...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/30/98 - 09/29/00

The goal of the proposed research is to develop and evaluate a novel method of infant body volume and composition measurement. Body composition (% fat and fat-free mass) information is very important in the assessment of nutritional status and growth. Given the current lack of any suitable technology for this pur...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 03/01/97 - 08/31/97

The goal of the proposed Phase I research is to determine the feasibility of a fast dual path system for respiratory gas analysis. Applications for respiratory gas analysis in health care and physiological assessment and numerous and important, including the measurement of metabolism, lung ventilation efficiency,...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/01/92 - 06/30/93

DESCRIPTION: (Investigator's Abstract): The purpose of the proposed research is to develop and test a novel plethysmographic approach to the determination of human body volume and composition. The need for a practical, accurate, non-invasive and low cost device for the measurement of body composition is well established for the general popula...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 02/01/90 - 07/31/90

The purpose of the proposed research is to establish the feasibility of a novel plethysmographic approach to the determination of human body volume and composition. The need for a practical, accurate, non-invasive and low cost device for the measurement of body composition is well established for the general population, where excess body fat is...
