  2. A cost-effective bioreactor to advance functional tissue engineering of cartilage

    SBC: APEX BIOMEDICAL COMPANY, LLC            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Osteoarthritis (OA) is the leading cause of chronic disability in the United States. A clinical goal in the treatment and prevention of OA is to develop replacement cartilage using tissue engineering (TE) technologies. Although TE cartilage presently lacks the mechanical stability of native cartilage, studies have demonstrated that mechanical stability can be e ...

  10. Sensor Network for Monitoring Real-world Arm Activity of Rehabilitation Patients

    SBC: ACTIVE WAVE, INC.            Topic: NICHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Evidence and theory indicate that laboratory measures of impairment and function do not predict how older adults actually function in daily life. Thomas Glass (1998), for example, reports marked differences between functional activities that community residents can do and do do in survey data from the MacArthur Studies of Successful Aging. Therefore, subst ...
