The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Impedance Threshold Value for Improving Standard CPR

    SBC: ADVANCED CIRCULATORY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Despite the widespread practice of basic and advanced life support, over 1000 patients die each day in the United States from an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Even though they receive standard cardiopulmonary resuscitation (sCPR) the average national survival to hospital discharge for these patients is less than 5%. The applicants have developed the inspir ...

  2. Inspiratory Impedance as a Treatment for Traumatic Brain Injury

    SBC: ADVANCED CIRCULATORY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A06150

    Traumatic head and neck injuries account for 16-33% of all war-related injuries and are a leading cause of mortality upon evacuation to a definitive care setting. Therapeutic advances are urgently needed for these soldiers. This application is focused on treating one of the most important determinants of outcome from severe head injury, the degree and duration of elevated intracranial pressure (I ...

  3. Automated Modeling and Simulation Tool for Lightening the Load of Warfighters

    SBC: VizTek, Inc            Topic: N08T019

    Today’s Warfighter often carries an inordinate load that can lead to injuries and encumbered performance. Equipment is distributed among squad members with little, if any regard for differences in strength and anthropometry. Consequently, the current focus on human-centric design requires a modeling and simulation tool that can reduce the load Warfighters carry and can help distribute equipmen ...

  5. Wireless Wrist Device to Alert the Deaf of Sounds and Events in Their Environment

    SBC: ADVANCED MEDICAL ELECTRONICS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    This project develops a wireless system to alert individuals who are deaf to critical soundsand events in their environment. This efficient, wearable system utilizes existing and developingtechnology, improving the ability of a person who is deaf to function more naturally in a work orschool environment. The system uses a consumer product called a Bluetooth wristwatch, which isessentially a wirele ...

  6. A Wearable Device for Wireless Acquisition of High Density Surface EMG Signals

    SBC: ADVANCED MEDICAL ELECTRONICS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Advanced Medical Electronics seeks to develop a wearable device for the wireless acquisition of high-density surface-electromyogram (HD sEMG) signals. A new wireless networking standard called ultra-wideband (UWB) makes possible the creation of an ambulatory research HD sEMG instrument that can transmit 128 or more channels of data in real time. High-density s ...

  7. Development of a Digital Sign System for Indoor Wayfinding by the Visually Impair

    SBC: ADVANCED MEDICAL ELECTRONICS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): It is challenging for visually-impaired people to find their way in unfamiliar, complex indoor spaces such as schools or office buildings. GPS technology has already been exploited for speech-based navigation for visual ly-impaired wayfinding in outdoor environments, but there is no equivalent technology for indoor wayfinding. Sighted pedestrians may sometimes ...

  8. Hearing Aid Connectivity to Consumer Electronics

    SBC: ADVANCED MEDICAL ELECTRONICS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This project will apply novel ultra-wideband (UWB) wireless impulse radio technology to provide connectivity from consumer electronics devices directly to micro- behind-the-ear (micro-BTE) hearing aids. In hearing aids, capturing sound close to the source before it is combined with background noise offers better signal to noise ratio. In the case of consumer e ...

  9. Wireless Digital Link Between Hearing Aids

    SBC: ADVANCED MEDICAL ELECTRONICS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This proposed project will create an ultra-low power, digital wireless transceiver as an integrated circuit (IC) which will enable communication between hearing aids worn in the left and right ears in a binaural system. Wireless synchronization between the digital signal processors of two hearing instruments is a new technology for next generation hearing inst ...
