Award List:

STTR Phase I: Controlled Energy Storage and Release in an Intelligent Prosthetic Foot

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Research Institution: University of Washington
Principal Investigator: Steven Collins
Award Amount: $100,000.00
RI Contact: N/A
Abstract:
This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will develop a wide-bandgap, thin-film semiconductor to enable a high-efficiency light-absorber layer for the top cell in monolithic tandem or multi-junction thin-film photovoltaics. Because of relatively high device packaging costs,… More

STTR Phase I: Development of an Actively-Controlled Prosthetic Foot

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Research Institution: Univ of MI
Principal Investigator: Steven H. Collins, Mr
Award Amount: $100,000.00
RI Contact: Arthur D. Kuo
Abstract:
This Small Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project aims to develop an actively controlled prosthetic foot that makes walking easier and more comfortable for the lower limb amputees. Commercial prostheses use passive mechanisms to provide articulation, cushioning against heel impact, and… More

Field Based Gait Monitoring System For the Elderly

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Steven H. Collins
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Convenient and objective assessment of gait is important for health management of older adults. Measuring gait function and mobility objectively can assess adherence and progress in an exercise or rehabilitation program , or track dosage and efficacy of… More

Field-Based Gait Monitoring System for the Elderly

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Peter Adamczyk
Award Amount: $856,200.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Health management of older adults can be improved through convenient and objective assessment of their gait. Although a number of quantitative measures of walking, such as the variability of steps taken, have been show n to predict the risk of falls, these… More

Dual-Function Intelligent Prosthetic Foot

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Peter Adamczyk – 723-277-7043
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term goal of this project is to develop prosthetic foot technology that can function differently for walking and standing tasks. Although current prostheses can be very effective for particular tasks (e.g. walking, running, or standing), an amputee must… More

Rapid, Near-Tranfusion Test for Bacteria in Platelets Units

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Peter Adamczyk – 723-277-7043
Award Amount: $149,555.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Robotic Amputee Gait Capacity Assessment System Robotic prostheses can improve mobility for individuals with amputation, but assessment and prescription for each individual is difficult and errors are costly. We propose to determine the feasibility of a product… More
