Award List:

Implantable Noise-Based Sensory Enhancement Devices

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Jason D. Harry
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
Stochastic resonance (SR) is a counterintuitive phenomenon in which slight amounts of noise imparted to a system actually increase its sensitivity to weak stimuli. SR has been shown to produce a demonstrable effect in human sensory cells. In both healthy young and clinical subjects - elderly,… More

ENHANCING THE TACTILE SENSE USING MECHANICAL NOISE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Jason D. Harry
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
Stochastic resonance (SR), a counterintuitive phenomenon in which slight amounts of environmental noise actually increase the discernability of signals or stimuli, produces a demonstrable effect in human sensory cells. In both healthy young and clinical subjects- elderly, diabetics, and stroke… More

Restoring diabetic tactile sense using mechanical noise

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Jason D. Harry
Award Amount: $752,874.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): More than 10 million individuals in the U.S. are thought to suffer from diabetic neuropathies. Many serious medical problems stem from this condition, including degradation of the mechanical senses of touch and proprioception. Usually affecting the extremities… More
