  2. Automated Dynamic Lists for Efficient Electronic Health Record Management

    SBC: Clinacuity, Inc            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by APPLICANT): Medical errors are recognized as the cause of numerous deaths, and even if some are difficult to avoid, many are preventable. Computerized physician order-entry systems with decision support have been proposed to reducethis risk of medication errors, but these systems rely on structured and coded information in the electronic health record (EHR). Unfortunately, ...

  8. Wearable muscle fiber excitation system for preventing blood clot


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Schizophrenia is a complex psychiatric disorder with a heterogeneous clinical phenotype. It is probably one of the most costly psychiatric illnesses, yet the development of novel and safe antipsychotics lags behind. Amplifying the actions of endocannabinoids by inhibiting their enzymatic degradation has emerged as an alternative strategy to exploit the endocann ...

    SBIR Phase I 2013 Department of Health and Human Services


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In the last two decades though the field of neuroprosthetics has gained tremendous momentum through the development of novel architectures for neural interfaces, however, till date there is no device which can be nomenclatured as the gold standard in the field. As a result the research and technology environment at each laboratory is unique and require a high ...

    SBIR Phase I 2013 Department of Health and Human Services
  10. Microbial Platform for Accessing Plant Alkaloids


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In order to successfully use microelectrode arrays for stimulation in chronic implantation, the neural electrode must have longevity and efficacy. Efficacy of stimulation primarily means injecting enough charge to the targeted tissue to elicit action potentials. However, in doing so, the electrode itself must not (1) degrade, (2) generate harmful substances and ...
