Award List:

Device for overground gait/balance training post-stroke

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Research Institution: REHABILITATION INSTITUTION OF CHICAGO
Principal Investigator: Michael A. Peshkin
Award Amount: $99,919.00
RI Contact: N/A
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Chicago PT is developing rehabilitation robotics to help clinicians provide more intensive functional retraining of overground walking, post-stroke. Chicago PT's concept is to build devices that work with the clinician rather than replacing the clinician, in… More

The development of a bio-inspired magnetoelectrosensory navigation system

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: Northwestern University
Principal Investigator: Malcolm MacIver, Assistant Professor
Award Amount: $69,498.00
RI Contact: Susan G. Ross
Abstract:
In addition to their ubiquitous abilities for navigation at small spatial scales, a host of animals migrate long distances through the open ocean or skies. The mechanisms underlying these powerful navigational abilities are slowly being decoded. This progress offers the opportunity to develop low… More

Tactile Detection Robotic Hand System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Julio Santos-Munn,, Dir of Operations
Award Amount: $98,991.00
Abstract:
By any measure, the human hands and brain form a remarkable system for perception and manipulation. Of particular interest to us is the ability to perform tactual stereognosis: i.e., to identify objects by touch. In a landmark study, Lederman and Klatzky (1987) showed that stereognosis is… More

Development of an Osseo-Magnetic Link for Control of Prosthetic Limb Rotation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Julio J. Santosmunne
Award Amount: $95,512.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this project is to create an intuitive control scheme for rotation of a prosthetic joint that preserves proprioception of limb rotation. Such a control scheme would reduce the cognitive burden of controllin g the prosthetic limb and allow the… More

The development of a bio-inspired magnetoelectrosensory navigation system

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: Northwestern University
Principal Investigator: Malcolm MacIver, Assistant Professor – (847) 491-3540
Award Amount: $740,163.00
RI Contact: Susan G. Ross
Abstract:
Many aquatic creatures transduce magnetic and electric fields for navigation cues and feedback control. Such sensing capabilities would greatly advance AUV technology. We will continue the co-design of sensing and motion capabilities along with empowering algorithms for underwater perception and… More
