  1. Improved Noise Attenuation Foam for In the Ear Hearing and Noise Devices

    SBC: Hearing Components, Inc.            Topic: NIDCD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Viscoelastic foam earplugs are commonly used for personal hearing protection to help reduce the incidence of hearing loss; however, many work environments exist where the protection from currently available earplugsis insufficient. In addition, the ability of existing foam earplugs to attenuate low frequency energy is relatively poor. Pilot experiments were ...

  3. Orthopedic Implants: Hypersonic Plasma Particle Deposition nano-porosity coatings

    SBC: Rushford Hypersonic, LLC            Topic: NIBIB

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The proposed study aims to evaluate the feasibility of applying Hypersonic Plasma Particle Deposition (HPPD) technique in regional coating Ti6Al4V used in orthopedic implants such that the surface modified region of HPPD coated Ti6Al4V is capable of being the articulating surface while the uncoated region remains ideal for bone and tissue in-growth. This is a ...

  5. A Miniaturized Fluidic Chip For Long-term Maintenance and Impedance Monitoring of

    SBC: Innovative Surface Technologies, Inc            Topic: NIEHS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This SBIR project is designed to develop miniaturized cell-based biosensors for low cost, portability and enhanced shelf life by extending the viability of the cultured mammalian cells. We will demonstrate the benefit of our current technology by creating micro-chips with approximately 100 times smaller dimensions than the currently available Electrical Cell- S ...

  6. Vision Impaired Wayfinding with Doppler Velocimeter

    SBC: KORONIS BIOMEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORP.            Topic: NEI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective is to use a new innovative sensor technology called a Doppler velocimeter (DV) for solving the problem of wayfinding indoors for the vision impaired. By performing a Doppler measurement of the floor movement relative to the walking person it is possible to determine the along-track velocity, the cross-track velocity and the vertical (up or dow ...

  7. SMART Mounts: independent positioning of mounted devices by people with severe di

    SBC: BLUE SKY DESIGNS INC            Topic: NICHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The proposed SMART mount, a powered mounting and positioning system, provides individuals with significant disabilities access to and control over their immediate environment. It enables independent repositioning ofdevices by a person with little or no upper extremity function-from their bed or a wheelchair. With the SMART mount's ability to move, rota ...

  8. Synchronized Automated Valve CPR for Cardiac Arrest

    SBC: RESQSYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): STD CPR by itself is inherently inefficient, in large part due to the lack of mechanical forces to draw blood into the heart during the chest wall recoil phase in order to refill the emptied chambers of the heart aftereach chest compression. Moreover, the coronary perfusion pressure is only marginally adequate as the pressure gradient between the aorta, the rig ...

  9. Development of a Miniature Hydrodynamically Suspended Intrathoracic Tesla Pump

    SBC: Minnetronix Medical, Inc.            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this proposal is to develop a miniaturized Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) that is small enough to be placed in the thoracic cavity at the apex of the heart. The miniature pump is based on the Tesla principal and will be supported passively with conical hydrodynamic bearings, thus greatly reducing the pump size compared to previous Tesla pump ...

  10. Home Based Spirometer for Monitoring Lung Transplant Patients

    SBC: KORONIS BIOMEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORP.            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Koronis Biomedical Technologies Corporation (KBT) proposes to develop a spirometer device targeted toward the needs of lung transplantation patients. Spirometers are standard care for the management of post-operative lung transplantation patients due to their high sensitivity to decreases in pulmonary function. In this project KBT will develop a spirometer equi ...
