A novel, unobtrusive and wearable, multiparameter ambulatory physiologic monitoring system for space and terrestrial applications, termed LifeGuard, is presented. The core element is a wearable monitor, the crew physiologic observation device (CPOD), that provides the capability to continuously record two standard electrocardiogram leads, respiration rate(More)
— The first micromachined bimorph organic ciliary array with on-chip CMOS circuitry is presented. This ciliary array is composed of an 8 2 8 array of cells each having four orthogonally oriented actuators in an overall die size of 9.4 2 9.4 mm. The polyimide-based actuators were fabricated directly above the selection and drive circuitry. Selection and(More)
A minimally verbal child with autism was exposed to short daily sessions of watching his parents on video in conjunction with an FM auditory trainer for a period of 4 weeks. Baseline measures of verbal and social behaviors were taken pre-treatment and repeated post treatment. Results indicate substantial gains in word productions, social orienting, and(More)

This paper describes a walking microrobot with 512 thermo-bimorph polyimide actuator legs. Eight groups of unidirectional legs can be separately controlled to produce planar motion with three degrees of freedom. Wave-like gaits propel the robot at speeds of up to 250 µm/sec while consuming approximately 1.6W power. Finite element methods are employed to(More)
