Towards the Development and Characterization of a Torque Sensor for Volitional Control of a Pediatric Exoskeleton
Each year in the U.S., between 1200 and 1500 school-aged children are diagnosed with cerebral palsy, a neurological disorder affecting body movement and the nervous system. The development of lightweight and custom ...

Effects of Pore Pressure Depletion on Horizontal Stresses and Propagation of Hydraulic Fractures during Refracturing
Refracturing of a horizontal well is a method to restore the productivity of the well in unconventional reservoirs after the expected production decline. Placement of new fractures in a system that has been already depleted ...
Does calculation or word-problem instruction provide a stronger route to pre-algebraic knowledge?
(Journal of Educational Psychology, 2014-12)
The focus of this study was connections among 3 aspects of mathematical cognition at 2nd grade: calculations, word problems, and prealgebraic knowledge. We extended the literature, which is dominated by correlational work, ...
Synthesis and Optical Properties of a Solid Solution between Boron and Aluminum in NaBa(B9-xAl1-x)O15: Eu2+
Solid state white lighting replaces traditional fluorescent and incandescent lighting due to its higher efficiency and longer lifetimes. One method used to produce solid state white light is combining a near-UV LED with ...
Designing Chemical Treatments for Mineral Scale Using Microfluidics
Mineral scale is a major production challenge for upstream oil and gas processes. Over time, the formation of inorganic precipitates hinders flow capacity by obstructing equipment. Treating and preventing these deposits ...
How Effective is Chlorhexidine Gluconate on Preventing Surgical Site Infections?
In the prevention of SSIs how does the use of chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG) compared with povidone-iodine or other solutions, impact the development of SSIs within 30 days postoperatively.
Children's Sleep Patterns During the School Year and Summer Break
The objective of this study was to explore potential causes of children’s accelerated weight gain during the summer months. This study examined differences in children’s parent-reported sleep patterns during the school ...
Defining Novel GRE Binding Motifs in Genes Related to the Wnt Signaling Pathway
The glucocorticoid receptor (GR) is a nuclear hormone receptor known to directly and indirectly modulate a wide array of downstream signaling pathways in response to ligand binding. Given its near ubiquitous presence and ...
Applications of Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM): From Particle to Biomedical Physics
