  1. Objective Measurement Tool for Detection and Monitoring of Noise-Induced Hearing Loss

    SBC: Mimosa Acoustics Inc.            Topic: DHP15015

    We propose to take our hearing-test device, which was designed to support research in advancing hearing-conservation programs, and ruggedize it for use in theater. Five key challenges that make the commercial-off-the-shelf OAE systems unsuitable for HCPs, will be overcome. We will: 1) implement next-generation otoacoustic emission tests to enable OAE measurements in noise-damaged ears, 2) add smar ...

  2. ThinkZone: A Research-Driven Gaming Portal for Transforming K-8 Teaching and Learning Practices

    SBC: ThinkZone LLC            Topic: EDIES15R0005

    The project team is developing and testing a prototype of Thinkzone, a blended learning portal intended for Kindergarten through Grade 8 teachers to host existing education learning games across core subject areas. The prototype will host games, and include a learning system to train educators to integrate games to replace or supplement instructional practice. In the Phase I pilot study will inclu ...

  3. A Comprehensive Tool Supporting Social and Emotional Learning Instruction for Students with High-Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder

    SBC: 3-C Institute for Social Development, Inc.            Topic: EDIES15R0005

    This project team is developing and testing a prototype of the Ivymount Social Readiness System, a mobile app designed for practitioners to assess the social and emotional strengths and deficits of kindergarten through Grade 6 students with high-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorders (HF-ASD). The prototype app will include an assessment rubric and professional development resources to facilitate i ...

  4. Emotion Explorer: An Integrated Online and Mobile Emotion Literacy Program for Early Elementary School Students and Educators

    SBC: 3-C Institute for Social Development, Inc.            Topic: EDIES15R0005

    This project team will develop and test a prototype of Emotion Explorer, a web-based program intended for kindergarten to Grade 2 students to create interactive storybooks to strengthen emotional literacy. Using the prototype, students will read and listen to storybooks focused on emotional literacy topics (i.e., emotion recognition, labeling, understanding, expression, regulation), after which th ...

  5. Spatiotemporally Controlled Keratin Biomaterial Delivery System for Functional Tissue Regeneration

    SBC: Keranetics, LLC            Topic: OSD10H03

    Currently, no commercial products exist for the repair of large injuries to muscle, particularly volumetric muscle loss (VML). In Phase I of this project, data demonstrated that keratin biomaterials can provide temporal release of growth factors while maintaining cell viability in vitro and in vivo. In Phase II, the biomaterial formulation was optimized for spatio-

  6. Enhanced Biocompatible Materials for the Repair of Ocular Injuries

    SBC: PREMITEC, INC.            Topic: A13085

    The objective of this project is to develop, produce, and commercialize a liquid-tight, field-applicable, ocular patch for wound stabilization and treatment of the eye following a war-related injury to the ocular surface. The patch consists of a curved flexible silicone membrane (similar in size and shape to a contact lens) which has had (1) a novel bio-adhesive

  7. Development of Technologies that Address the Complex Architecture of the Face During the Treatment of Severe Facial Burn Injury

    SBC: Keranetics, LLC            Topic: DHP13016

    Burn injuries, particularly those to the face, present a number of functional and psychological challenges that arise from scarring and related contracture. A major goal of trauma and burn surgeons is to prevent scarring and improve grafting technologies given the complexity of facial topography. This project seeks to optimize and finalize a prototype of a 3D printed keratin facemask capable of ...

  8. Novel Methods to Monitor Health Status and Clinical Laboratory Data: Portable Acquisition, Assessment, and Reporting

    SBC: Mimosa Acoustics Inc.            Topic: OSD09H26

    Mimosa Acoustics will develop a portable binaural audiological device, based on our successful HearID system. HearID is a clinical system for otoacoustic emission and middle-ear power analysis testing; it is FDA and CE-marked. The new system will have the ability to conduct a variety of audiological tests especially for use in hearing-conservation programs, including: flexible otoacoustic emission ...

  9. Keratin Biomaterials for Cranio-facial Tissue Engineering

    SBC: Keranetics, LLC            Topic: OSD09H10

    The majority of personnel injured in OIF/OEF have suffered blast injuries from IEDs. Blasts often cause cranio-facial trauma that is difficult to repair surgically. The current standard of care involves the placement of fixation devices and off label use of growth factor carriers. These strategies often require multiple surgical interventions creating a significant need for better technologies ...

  10. Spatiotemporally Controlled Keratin Biomaterial Delivery System for Functional Tissue Regeneration

    SBC: Keranetics, LLC            Topic: OSD10H03

    A principal approach in regenerative medicine is to stimulate or augment endogenous repair mechanisms that promote functional restoration of damaged or diseased tissues. When loss of significant volumes of multiple functionally integrated tissues occurs,
