  1. Improved Child Safety Seat

    SBC: Minnesota HealthSolutions Corporation            Topic: NCIPC

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among children in the United States. Child safety seats provide protection and have been observed to reduce death and injury rates by more than 70% when properly used. Studies have observed that only 10% to 20% of children are correctly harnessed into correctly installed seats. One of the most common errors i ...

  6. Vision Impaired Wayfinding with Doppler Velocimeter

    SBC: KORONIS BIOMEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORP.            Topic: NEI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this phase II project is to use a new and innovative sensor technology called Doppler velocimetery (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 ...

  7. Resuscitation using novel impedance threshold devices in pediatrics

    SBC: ADVANCED CIRCULATORY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Traumatic injury and hypovolemic shock are leading causes of death in children worldwide. Rapid, large volume crystalloid infusion and positive intrathoracic pressure ventilation resuscitation strategies often increasemorbidity and mortality following hemorrhage. Augmenting negative intrathoracic pressure, even without fluid resuscitation, improves hemodynamic ...

  8. Catechol-functionalized Coatings for Medical Devices

    SBC: Innovative Surface Technologies, Inc            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This project is designed to develop novel catechol-functionalized polymers for medical device coatings with increased lubricity and biocompatibility. Catechols have been shown to be key components in the adhesive proteins that mussels secrete to attach to underwater surfaces. The catechol has a number of different non-covalent bond interactions which serve to i ...
