  1. Passive SPARKy-P Prostheses (Spring Ankle with Regenerative Kinetics)

    SBC: Springactive, Inc.            Topic: DHP16C007

    SpringActive Inc. collaborating with Arizona State University will design and build a spring-based, passive prosthetic ankle that stores energy in the stance phase and returns it at push-off to propel the user forward. The team will leverage experience in designing tuned spring ankles. A plantarflexion spring will allow the ankle to plantarflex smoothly and align to the ground after heel strike. ...

  2. Wireless IMU Sensing for Activity Control of Ankle Prosthesis

    SBC: Springactive, Inc.            Topic: DHA17A005

    This proposal aims to develop a wireless IMU (WIMU) activity recognition system for SpringActive`s powered ankle prosthesis, Odyssey. Robust activity detection via WIMU will revolutionize the state-of-the-art in powered, lower limb prosthetics by integrating (i) bio-inspired intelligence with (ii) biomimetic mechanics into a highly-maneuverable, smart, ankle-foot prosthesis system. Odyssey is the ...

  3. Real-time Modulated Imaging for Assessment of Tissue Viability Prior to Skin Grafts

    SBC: Modulated Imaging Inc.            Topic: DHA17A006

    There is a lack of quantitative tools to accurately map tissue viability in a rapid and quantitative manner so a surgeon can properly excise tissue prior to grafting. Spatial Frequency Domain Imaging (SFDI) is an optical method that has been shown to be a reliable method for physiology assessment - particularly for burn depth. SFDI measures of tissue structure (scattering) and function (hemoglobi ...

  4. In-Mask Sensors for Physiological Investigation of Respiratory Exhalation- INSPIRE

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: DHP16C002

    Makel Engineering, Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories propose to demonstrate an advanced multi-modal sensor system suitable for in-situ analysis of exhaled VOCs for pilots, divers and field patients. Our proposed system will combine a micro-gas chromatograph (GC) and miniature ion mobility spectrometer (IMS) for detection of trace amounts of exhaled breath VOCs with miniature solid state sensor ...

  5. Mask integrated Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) sensor for real-time warfighter physiological status monitoring in extreme and toxic environments

    SBC: Bayspec, Inc.            Topic: DHP16C002

    BaySpec Inc., in collaboration with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, proposes to develop an innovative orthogonal sensor systemthat would be able to detect, identify and quantify the inorganic components of breathing mixes, (i.e., nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, argon, helium, and water vapor), as well as individual detectable VOCs within the exhaled breath in real-time. The Phase I resear ...

  6. Multimodal imaging system for burn injury assessment

    SBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION            Topic: DHP16C005

    The goal of this STTR effort is to design a portable, multimodal, non-contact imaging system for burn depth diagnosis and tracking of wound healing. UC and Vanderbilt University will build upon our previous efforts demonstrated via porcine model studies to combine results from structural B-mode optical coherence tomography (OCT) images and functional data (pulse speckle imaging- PSI) to classify d ...

  7. Smart Femtosecond Fiber Laser Wound Healing System

    SBC: POLARONYX, INC.            Topic: DHP15B002

    Based on our success in developing the world first commercial high energy femtosecond fiber laser system and our leading proprietary technology development in ultrashort pulsed fiber laser material processing, PolarOnyx proposes, for the first time, a compact high energy fiber laser based smart wound healing tool to meet with the requirement of this DHP solicitation. It includes a high energy fs f ...

  8. Data Driven Intent Recognition Framework

    SBC: Other Lab Inc.            Topic: NSF13599

    A critical aspect of exoskeleton control that has to date introduced a performance limitation is the ability of the exoskeleton to recognize the intent of the operator so it can apply assistance to their desired motion. This intent recognition effort is typically solved using ad-hoc methods where subject matter experts make design decisions and tune transitions to identify intended maneuvers as re ...

  9. Improved Flotation Separation of Rare Earth Ore

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: OSD12T01

    A critical step in the extraction of elements from ore, especially rare earth elements that are found in complex minerals, is separation. Froth flotation is a highly versatile method for physically separating particles based on differences in the ability of air bubbles to selectively adhere to specific mineral surfaces in a mineral/water slurry. The particles with attached air bubbles are then ca ...
