Award List:

Frequency-Domain Tissue Spectrometer

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1993 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Beniamino F. Barbieri
Award Amount: $50,000.00

Frequency-Domain Tissue Spectrometer

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1996 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Beniamino F. Barbieri
Award Amount: $668,561.00
Abstract:
We are developing a novel kind of tissue spectrometer which utilizes total scattered light to quantitatively and non-invasively measure the absorption and scattering coefficients in highly scattering media. The method is based on the use of a radio frequency-modulated light source. Measurement of… More

FUNCTIONAL NEAR INFRARED IMAGING SYSTEM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1999 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Beniamino F. Barbieri
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
Not Available Conventional karaoke uses visual prompting to enable spontaneous sing-along without prior memorization of lyrics. This means that the blind and visually-impaired are largely excluded from participation. But Troubadour Enterprises has invented a recording method and play-system for… More

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2000 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Antonios Michalos
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
Not Available The proposed research is focused on a virtual instrument version of a system that acquires multiple variables of meaningful, clinically-relevant physiological data from a single location on the human body in an unobtrusive, non-invasive manner. Heart rat

Compact quantitative near infrared device for combat casualty care

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Dennis Hueber, Director of Engineering
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
The early recognition of severe hemorrhage is a key factor towards reducing mortality and morbidity from battlefield insults. Although near-infrared (NIR) instruments have shown promise in recognizing hemorrhage, specific confounding factors must be solved to be reliable in early hemorrhage. Our… More
