GBC will leverage its multidisciplinary research strengths in the creation of ARGILE, a “Living Lab” for Building Construction, Restoration, Energy Efficiency, Product Testing and the Development of Innovative Environmental Building Solutions, all with a focus on Sustainability and in collaboration with Industry.
Functional Mobility Screening in Adults 50-70 Years of Age (Phase II)
This project explores whether a health screening tool (including objective and subjective measures) can be designed to identify potential problem areas in functional mobility in clients in their 5th and 6th decades. Two students have been hired to work on the project.
Assessment of the Construct Validity of Virtual Interactive Case (VIC) Scores in Nursing cases
The Virtual Interactive Case (VIC) system allows nurse educators to create online simulations of patient encounters that students can use to practice conducting nursing assessments. The VIC case allows the student to take the patients history, conduct a review of systems and physical exam, order laboratory tests, review diagnostic images and consult with specialists in gathering the pertinent information to determine the patient problems that require nursing interventions.
Recipe Optimization and Commercialization of a Line of Healthy Snacks
The focus of this applied research project is to create a line of delicious and healthy snacks that are easy on the digestive system, while providing the energy needed in a quick and convenient form. The consumer will be able to choose the right snack with a quick read of the package.
Biochemical and Functional Evaluation of A Low Cost Energy Storage and Return Orthosis
The objective of phase 1 is to test a new thermoplastic custom reinforced ankle-foot orthosis using kinematic and kinetic gait analysis on a convenience sample of 9 ambulatory (GMFSC levels I through III) children and/or adolescent individuals with cerebral palsy (with hemiplegia).
