  1. A Novel Diagnostic Assay for the Detection of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: OSD11H05

    One in three humans currently living on earth are infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacterium that causes tuberculosis. This number is astonishing and underscores our ever-increasing need for accurate and efficient tuberculosis diagnostics. This is especially true for the US military wherein troops are serving in areas around the world that have high tuberculosis incidence rates. While ...

  2. The PACeR Gold- Multiplex Pathogen Identification Platform for Detection of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis Infections.

    SBC: Accacia International LLC            Topic: OSD11H05

    The World Health Organization estimates that more than one-third of the worldwide population is infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB), the causative agent of most cases of tuberculosis (TB). Patients who are infected with MTB, but do not have active TB disease have latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI), a non-communicable, asymptomatic condition which might develop into active TB disease m ...

  3. Improved Coupling Factor of Personal Cooling Systems

    SBC: Alaska Native Technologies, LLC            Topic: OSD11H06

    The Microclimate Cooling Unit will use magnetic energy to cause a temperature change in the exchanger to extract heat from the gel pack, which covers the primary area of heat loss on the human body at the neck and upper back, reducing the overall body temperature. Thermocouples will monitor the gel pack to allow the user to adjust the pack temperature to their needs.

  4. Improved Coupling Factor of Personal Cooling Systems

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: OSD11H06

    Aspen Systems Inc. proposes a novel personal cooling system that uses a vapor compression chiller to circulate cooled water through flow channels in a wearable vest to facilitate improved cooling of personnel in high-temperature environments. The system is designed to cycle coolant delivered to various zones within the vest enabling the body surface to vasodilate in between chilled liquid flow. ...

  5. Rehabilitative Technologies that Monitor Metabolic Demands of Prosthetics in Lower Extremity Amputees during Rehabilitation

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: OSD11H07

    With the continued improvements in body armor, and the disturbing increase in explosive offensives in modern combat, more of our wounded soldiers are surviving their injuries and there has been a considerable increase in the military amputee population. Improvements in the prosthetic limb dynamics have outpaced improvements to the fit and comfort of the devices, and so several concerns remain as ...

  6. Rehabilitative Technologies that Monitor Metabolic Demands of Prosthetics in Lower Extremity Amputees during Rehabilitation

    SBC: BioSensics LLC            Topic: OSD11H07

    In this phase I SBIR project, BioSensics will partner with Ranchos Los Amigos Rehabilitation Center to develop, implement and evaluate a novel technology to monitor metabolic demands of energy expenditure during Activity of Daily Living (ADL) in amputees. The proposed technology is based on objective evaluation of the required locomotion and movement of prosthetic foot that will be obtained from t ...

  7. Rehabilitative Technologies that Monitor Metabolic Demands of Prosthetics in Lower Extremity Amputees during Rehabilitation

    SBC: Hstar Technologies            Topic: OSD11H07

    Hstar proposes a real-time wearable amputee rehabilitation monitor (WARM) system. It will enhance amputee rehabilitation process with metabolic cost monitoring, gait analysis, and comfort analysis. It will support users Activities of Daily Living (ADL) and provide physicians, physical therapists and prosthetists important information of lower limb amputees to achieve successful rehabilitation proc ...

  8. Monitoring Metabolic Energy Expenditure Via the Prosthetics of Lower Extremity Amputees

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: OSD11H07

    Limb loss affects approximately 1.9 million people in the United States, 400,000 of whom have amputations above the knee. It is well established that lower-limb amputees show greater metabolic demands during gait and more limited mobility compared to non-disabled individuals. At present, there is no lower-extremity prosthesis available that can monitor the metabolic costs of the amputee. The propo ...

  9. Real-time Assessment of Engineered Tissue Viability with Combined Raman SpectroscopyHigh Resolution Optical Imaging

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: OSD11H08

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), in collaboration with the Center for Regenerative Medicine at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), proposes to investigate a multimodal optical imaging and spectroscopy approach for in vitro characterization of engineered tissue constructs. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging will be used for gross assessment of tissue morphology and birefringence properti ...

  10. The Measurement of the Corneal and Scleral Surface for the Purpose of Automating Ocular Surface Prosthetic Fitting

    SBC: EYEdeal SCANNING            Topic: OSD11H09

    The objective of this proposal is to produce an apparatus to automatically measure the corneal and scleral surface to facilitate the manufacture of ocular surface prosthetics with a lens diameter up to 24 millimeters. Prior art attempts to measure surface topology, especially in the bearing region of these large diameter lenses, have failed due to the steep curvature of the sclera. An apparatus ...
