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. Wheelchair Optimal Route Planning for Public Urban and Indoor Places

    SBC: Innovative Design Labs Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Innovative Design Labs (IDL) proposes to create a system which helps guide wheelchair users along the best path through complex urban landscapes. Since the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) were established in 1990 the ability of wheelchair users to navigate has greatly improved. However, there are still many areas in which modification for accessibility was not “r ...

  2. Monitoring Individuals at Risk for Traumatic Brain Injury


    The project will create an affordable system to monitor adolescent athletes in contact sports to identify individuals at risk for traumatic brain injury from continual sub-concussive impacts. The need is to reduce the risk of long term brain injury by providing tools to tell when it's risky/safe to play and find areas where strength training and technique may reduce risk on an individual level. Th ...

  3. Sensing and Control of Stand-To-Sit Motions of a Wearable Bionics Suit

    SBC: Innovative Design Labs Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Innovative Design Labs (IDL), in collaboration with the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC), proposes to create a system for the sensing and control of stand-to-sit motions of a wearable bionics suit. Recent research found that 3.86 million Americans require wheelchairs and the number has been increasing annually by an average annual rate of 5.9% a year. While wheelchairs provide freedom all ...

  4. Investigation of Donor and Acceptor Ion Implantation in AlN

    SBC: AGNITRON TECHNOLOGY, INC            Topic: 02a

    AlN is an attractive material for power electronics device applications due to its wide bandgap and resulting high electric breakdown field. One of the major challenges that need to be addressed to achieve full utilization of AlN for power electronics applications is the development of a doping strategy for both donors and acceptors. Ion implantation is a particularly attractive approach since it ...

  5. Low-Cost, High Efficiency Integration of Solid-State Lighting and Building Controls Using a Packet Energy Transfer (PET) Power Distribution System

    SBC: VoltServer            Topic: 03a

    Solid state lighting has not yet taken off in commercial buildings due to its high relative installed cost. On a normalized basis, solid state lighting replacement lamps are on the order of two times more expensive than equivalent compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), and five times more expensive than an equivalent downlight fixture. An additional barrier relates to the performance and cost of the dr ...

  6. GaAsSb/AlGaAsP Superlattice Polarized Electron Source

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: 41e

    The negative-electron-affinity (NEA) photocathodes which produce polarized electrons are a vital component of electron accelerators such as that at DoE Jefferson Lab and the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC). Future systems, such as the International Linear Collider (ILC), will require a polarized electron beam intensity at least 20 times greater than produced by strained GaAs, which is us ...

  7. Accurate WiFi-Based Localization of Dementia Patients For Caregiver Support

    SBC: ASTER LABS, INC            Topic: NIA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): An estimated 5.4 million Americans had Alzheimer's disease in 2012 and a 50% increase in this number is expected by 2030. The majority of these patients (70%) will live at home where they receive 75% of their care frominformal caregivers, unpaid individuals such as family members, friends, and neighbors. These caregivers provide valuable services, often a ...

  8. Potassium Level Monitoring System


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Advanced Medical Electronics (AME) and our partners propose a minimally-invasive system for continuous monitoring of potassium. Measurement of blood levels of potassium is important in clinical medicine. Abnormalities of potassium, common in heart and kidney disease, can be aggravated by many medications used to treat these disorders leading to arrhythmias and ...

  9. An immunomodulatory yeast-derived beta glucan as a component of a conjugate

    SBC: BIOTHERA            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Fungal infections, particularly in immunocompromised patients, are a serious and growing problem. Although antifungal therapeutics have improved greatly, failures and relapse are common. Aspergillus fumigatus is a primary cause of these infections in several patient populations: transplants, leukemics, genetic deficiencies such as chronic granulomatous disease ...

  10. Orthopedic Tissue Tension Sensor

    SBC: FOCUSSTART, LLC            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In orthopedic surgery, surgeons have to handle not only bone but also the surrounding soft tissue, including muscle, fascia, tendon, ligament and capsule. Successful handling of these tissues is often the key to high reproducibility, good soft tissue healing, and restoration of overall function. However, there are no widely used, robust methods for intra-opera ...
