  1. Public Rights-of-Way Assessment Instrumentation to Determine Accessibility

    SBC: BENEFICIAL DESIGNS INC            Topic: 081FH2

    City planners and engineers need detailed assessments of public rights-of-way to evaluate existing conditions, determine compliance with draft accessibility guidelines, and plan reconstruction projects. Current assessment methods are inadequate and inefficient due to the time and resources required. This project will develop an automated public rights-of-way assessment process and the measuremen ...

  2. Nanodroplet PCR Lab-Chip for Clinical Pathogen Detection


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): It is estimated that 2 million health-care associated infections are acquired each year by hospitalized patients resulting in 90,000 deaths and about 4.5 billion in excess health care costs. A large and growing percentage of these infections can be attributed to Staphylococcus aureus and, in particular, to methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA). Rapid PCR-base ...

  3. Localized Growth Factor Therapy for Surgical Hernia Repair

    SBC: AFFINERGY, LLC            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Over 700,000 surgical hernia repairs are performed each year in the United States and despite recent advances, a significant rate of recurrence persists. The incorporation of biocompatible mesh to strengthen the abdominal fascia has largely replaced high-tension suturing techniques in hernia repair. Currently, the preferred biomaterials include durable syntheti ...

  10. Nitric Oxide-Releasing Wound Dressing for Preventing Chronic Wound Infections

    SBC: Novan, Inc.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Many wounds, such as surgical and traumatic injuries, heal without difficulty. Chronic wounds, however, typically exhibit delayed healing in patients with underlying medical conditions that prevent normal tissue repair. For example, approximately 15% of all people with diabetes mellitus will develop a foot ulcer at some point in their lives. Diabetic foot ulcer ...
