For persons who communicate nontraditionally, using behaviors, objects, and microswitches, the role of a supportive partner is all the more critical, to ensure that communication attempts are recognized and reinforced (Rowland & Schweigert, 2000).
s (2002) study with an adult with multiple disabilities using switch activations for communication all support the use of microswitches and AAC devices for developing meaningful communication exchanges for some individuals with deaf-blindness who have additional disabilities.
This dual goal of promoting adaptive responses and reducing aberrant behavior may be pursued through a novel intervention technology that is based on microswitch clusters (combinations of microswitches that concurrently monitor adaptive and aberrant responses) and preferred stimuli that are available for adaptive responses that occur in the absence of aberrant ones (see, for example, Lancioni et al.
The kit includes the assembled VoiceDirect(TM) Module (which contains a microphone pre-amplifier, serial EEPROM and oscillator,) a microphone element, speaker, (3) microswitches, (2) 100K resistors and a quick setup guide.
Radant MEMS has taken the lead in the race to bring MEMS-based RF microswitches to market and to the government sectors, and is the premier pioneer in this growing field," says Frost & Sullivan research analyst Rajesh Kannan.
Helium is a key element in such diverse applications as research on superconducting magnets and power lines, cryogenic processing (controlled heating and cooling of metals to obtain desired structural improvements), purging and pressurizing of containers (such as NASA's fuel tanks), high-temperature welding operations, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in hospitals, production of optical fibers and semiconductor microswitches, and chromatography.
Through its leadership in the use of deep silicon reactive ion etching (DRIE), Kionix has developed innovative products such as inertial sensors, microswitches, microfluidic systems, micromirror arrays and ultra-high density data storage devices.
