  2. Automated Eye Disease Screening System

    SBC: Visionquest Biomedical LLC            Topic: NEI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This proposed project is motivated by the fact that comprehensive, broad-scale screening for eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy (DR), including advanced stages, is economically prohibitive without the introduction of computer-assisted diagnosis of retinal images. According to the CDC approximately 80 ...

  3. Remote Assistance for HIV Antiretroviral Adherence

    SBC: K & A Wireless, LLC            Topic: NIMH

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This SBIR project is developing a system capable of remotely monitoring, in real-time, the adherence of an HIV patient to Antiretroviral therapy (ART). ART is a medication regimen that once started, needs to be followedfor the rest of the patient's life. ART has been successful in improving the quality and expectancy of life of HIV patients as well as in r ...

  4. A suite of web apps for patients with alcohol and drug use problems in primary care

    SBC: BEHAVIOR THERAPY ASSOCIATES, LLP            Topic: NIAAA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The annual healthcare costs of heavy drinking in the U.S. are estimated to be 24.6 billion (Bouchery et al., 2011). Effectively intervening with hazardous, risky, and problem drinkers would reduce both their morbidityand their healthcare costs. One way to address the needs of problem drinkers is by screening for and intervening with them in primary care. It is ...

  6. Infant Oral Feeding Device for Use in Neonatal Intensive Care Units

    SBC: Lau-Yeu LLC            Topic: NICHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Preterm infants (lt 37 weeks gestation) have difficulty with oral feeding due to immature suck, swallow, respiration, and low endurance. As the ability to feed by mouth is a criterion for hospital discharge, it is oftendelayed, leading to increased medical cost, maternal stress, and delayed mother-infant reunification. No oral feeding device currently exists to ...
