Polyurethane Load Bearing Surfaces for Total Hip Joint Replacement

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $145,900.00
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): As total hip arthroplasty (THA) is being performed on increasingly younger patients, there is a need for THA implants that can sustain higher patient activity and number of loading cycle. UHMW-PE used in most common TH A implants have been shown susceptible to… More

Polyurethane Bone Cements for Total Hip Implants

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Ibrahim Sendijarevic
Award Amount: $155,641.00
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) has been used as a bone cement in total hip arthroplasty (THA) since the 1960's and today is still used in a significant percentage of the 1.5 million THA procedures performed worldwide eac h year.

SBIR Phase I: Polyols Derived from Proteins Biomass for Rigid Polyurethane Foams

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Vahid Sendijarevic
Award Amount: $149,940.00
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is proposing to produce polyols from soymeal for use in the manufacturing of rigid polyurethanes foams. The proposed process follows the ?Green Chemistry? guidelines and consists of hydrolyzing the protein to amino acids and converting them to… More
