A Wide-band Reflectance - DPOAE (WR-DP)Screener

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Patricia S. Jeng
Award Amount: $200,939.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of newborn hearing screening is to identify infants with sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL), but most neonates who fail screening have conductive hearing loss (CHL) rather than sensorineural hearing loss, resulting in high false positive rate and costly… More

A Wide Band Reflectance - DPOAE (WR-DP) Screener

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Patricia S. Jeng
Award Amount: $1,319,898.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of newborn hearing screening is to identity infants with inner ear pathology (IEP), but most neonates who fail screening have conductive disorders (CD) rather than IEP, resulting in high false positive rates and costly follow-up diagnostic evaluation.… More

Non-Invasive Instrument for Monitoring Changes in Intracranial Pressure

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Patricia S. Jeng
Award Amount: $182,029.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A wide range of devastating brain injuries cause brain swelling or bleeding. Because the skull is fixed in volume, increases in the volume of its contents result in increases in intracranial pressure (ICP). Elevations o f ICP can lead to worsening brain injury or… More

Development of a power-based (intensity-based) audiometer to improve hearing thre

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Patricia S. Jeng
Award Amount: $156,376.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Clinical pure tone audiometry is the most basic hearing test. However, measurements obtained with a standard pure tone audiometer do not take into account the large individual differences in the volume of the ear canal and concomitant differences in the acoustic… More

Insert ear-probe assembly for high-quality otoacoustic-emission (OAE) measurements in adults

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: University of Illinois
Principal Investigator: Patricia Jeng, President
Award Amount: $69,638.00
RI Contact: Walter Knorr
Abstract:
Recently there has been a push to get otoacoustic emission (OAE) testing into adult hearing-conservation programs, because the early stages of noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL), and susceptibility to NIHL, can be detected with OAEs. OAEs are sounds made by healthy inner ears in response to acoustic… More

Novel Methods to Monitor Health Status and Clinical Laboratory Data

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator: Patricia S. Jeng, President
Award Amount: $99,460.00
Abstract:
Mimosa Acoustics will develop a portable binaural audiological device, based on our successful HearID system. HearID is a clinical system for otoacoustic emission and middle-ear power analysis testing; it is FDA(510k) approved and CE-marked. The new system will have the ability to conduct a variety… More

Insert ear-probe assembly for high-quality otoacoustic-emission (OAE) measurements in adults

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: University of illinois, Urbana-Cham
Principal Investigator: Patricia Jeng, President – (217) 359-9740
Award Amount: $703,746.00
RI Contact: Kathy Young
Abstract:
OAE has proved to be an important measurement for hearing conservation programs. OAEs are sounds made by healthy inner ears in response to acoustic stimulation and are measured in the ear canal with a miniature microphone. One impediment to OAE testing on a large scale, such as in military hearing… More
