Nursing Bra with Integrated Shirt Clip Dr. Jessica Ridgway Clayton 22-014 Garrett Edmunds gedmunds@fsu.edu <p>A nursing bra featuring a clip system to hold a mother’s shirt up for her while breastfeeding.</p> <ul> <li><span>An integrated clip system to easily and comfortably hold a mother's shirt during nursing</span></li> <li><span>The system is a single unit, where the clip is incorporated into the strap of the nursing bra itself</span></li> <li><span>Can reduce body strain and promotes compliance with health agencies' recommendation on breastfeeding </span></li> </ul> <p><span>The clip system integrates into the strap of a nursing bra and allows a mother to quickly and easily clip their shirt up to allow for access to their breast. The system is made up of two clips, the first that unlatches the cup of the bra that folds down to expose the breast for feeding, and the second, the new patent-pending invention, which unclips to serve as a strap that loops through the hem and neckline of a mother’s shirt and then clips to hold the shirt up and in place. The clip system can work bilaterally for a mother who wants to double pump or who is feeding twins, or unilaterally for single breastfeeding or pumping. The use of this clip system will allow mothers to comfortably sit with a neutral spine position, alleviating back and neck pain associated with breastfeeding. Additionally, the clip system allows a mother to clearly view her breast helping her baby to achieve a correct latch. The combination of aiding with proper latching and reducing a mother’s discomfort should result in a better breastfeeding experience for mothers. It is the researcher’s hope that this invention will be accessible and available to mothers worldwide, helping to increase the rate at which mothers are able to exclusively offer breast milk to their children.</span></p> Wearable technology,Nursing Bra,Maternity
Transcranial Stimulation to Treat DMN Dysfunction Wen Li 22-035 Michael Tentnowski mtentnowski@fsu.edu <p>This technology is directly applied to people with mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease to alleviate symptoms and improve life quality. It builds upon non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS), specifically transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) that applies a relatively low-intensity sinusoid current through the scalp to stimulate the brain. It targets a major neural network (the default mode network/DMN), which breaks down with normal aging, precipitously in mild cognitive impairment and severely in Alzheimer’s disease.  The application is non-invasive, safe, and user-friendly and has a strong potential to be applied as therapeutics and prophylactics for cognitive impairment and dementia.</p> Psychology,Alzheimer's,Aging,Dementia
The Tools Upon My Shelf Lara Klopp 22-039 Reis Alsberry rdalsberry@fsu.edu <p>"The Tools Upon My Shelf" was written to reach younger children in the program with characters representing large and small emotions, as well as intentionally non-descript human characters, that do not exclude any readers by presenting specific demographics.  It is an effective resource in helping young children to understand, process, and cope with their emotions properly.  This book is currently being implemented in many schools throughout Florida, and its reach is expanding.  The manuscript would be useful to any early educator focused on social-emotional learning.</p> <p>Advantages</p> <ul> <li>Specific content relates to the Rebound &amp; Recovery Social-Emotional Learning Program developed by the FSU College of Social Work’s Center for the Study and Promotion of Communities, Families, &amp; Children. </li> <li>Plans are underway for creating additional materials from the book’s characters. Stickers, posters, calendars, notebooks, stuffed animals, and blankets may be available in the future.</li> </ul>
Rebound and Recovery Professional Certification / Curriculum Tai Cole 22-038 Reis Alsberry rdalsberry@fsu.edu <p>Rebound &amp; Recovery is an evidence-based program that is the culmination of the efforts of several gifted clinical social workers, psychologists, and early childhood education researchers.  It enables prekindergarten through third grade children to identify their emotions, recognize the sources of their emotions, and develop techniques to calm down when their emotions grow too large for them to handle.Rebound and Recovery is a new way to work with children who are experiencing emotional and behavioral dysregulation by equipping classroom teachers and/or caregivers.  Professional certification uses 15 modules to teach educators about social emotional learning, cognitive behavioral techniques, and how to use the curriculum. This promotes kindergarten readiness and helps with classroom emotional and behavioral managements.</p> <p>Advantages</p> <p>Rebound and Recovery curriculum is ten lessons that provide direct instruction through scripted material, large- and small-group instruction, stories and activities. Lessons include:</p> <p>How my emotions, thoughts, and actions are connected,</p> <ul> <li>What are my thoughts and actions?</li> <li>What is sadness?</li> <li>What is anger?</li> <li>What is worry?</li> <li>What is calm?</li> <li>What is happiness?</li> <li>What are negative thoughts?</li> <li>What is self-care? and</li> <li>What are support systems?</li> </ul>
