  1. A rapid and high-throughput microfluidic stem cell analyzer

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD11H14

    Current methods to discern the differentiation state of stem cells are time-consuming, labor-intensive, costly, invasive, and consequently, ill-suited for clinical applications. To overcome these limitations, we propose to develop a microfluidic stem cell analyzer for accurate, non-invasive identification of the cell differentiation state in conjunction with automated cell sorting at high-throughp ...

  2. Development of Technologies that Control Scar Contracture after Burn Injuries

    SBC: Quick-Med Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DHP12016

    Current therapies to prevent scar formation and contracture of burns are minimally effective. QuickMed Technologies (QMT) proposes to develop an advanced therapy to enhance healing and prevent contraction of burn scars by combining the advanced prototype BURN-PLUS dressing with Endoform dermal template. BURN-PLUS is an occlusive island dressing with an adhesive apron bonded onto a super absorben ...

  3. Ear Protection Validation System

    SBC: MICHAEL & ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: DHP12009

    A new Field-Microphone in Real Ear (F-MIRE) Field Attenuation Estimation System (FAES) is proposed. The insertion loss measurements will utilize a sub-miniature microphone mounted deep in the ear canal. An ultra-thin flat flexible cable (FFC) will connect the microphone to the PC-based analysis module. Human subject and test fixture verification tests have been performed demonstrating that the ...

  4. Multiple-user Wireless Hearing Protection Device Validation and Training System

    SBC: KCF TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: DHP12009

    KCF proposes to build a general wireless hearing protection device validation system with miniature, wireless in real ear microphones. The microphones will be battery-free to enable the reduction in size necessary to fit in the canal for testing with any hearing protection device. KCF has developed a low power wireless protocol that allows the microphones to run on small amounts of power that ca ...

  5. Reduction of Burn Progression and Scar Contracture with Cytokine-Neutralizing Gels

    SBC: Washburn Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: DHP12016

    Washburn Therapeutics Inc. is developing biologically active gels that control inflammation by selectively neutralizing pro-inflammatory cytokines based on a technology being licensed exclusively by the company from Carnegie Mellon University. Preliminary results demonstrated that conjugates of antibodies against tumor necrosis factor-alpha and hyaluronic acid were able to reduce secondary necrosi ...

  6. SynDaver Synthetic Human Phase Two

    SBC: SYNDAVER LABS INC.            Topic: OSD10H09

    This project is divided into a refinement phase and an optional advanced technologies phase. The first year will be devoted to development of a simplified SynDaver Basic (SB) model, a more advanced male full body (SSH-MFB) version of the SynDaver Synthetic Human, and simple sensing technologies to allow the SSH to be used in armor and MRAP development. The second year will focus on development ...

  7. Serious Game for Continuity of Care Training

    SBC: Vcom3D, Inc.            Topic: OSD10H08

    For this Phase II SBIR project, Vcom3D proposes a Serious Game for Continuity of Care that trains combat physicians in making critical medical decisions when faced with a multiple-casualty, multi-trauma incident. The Serious Game for Continuity of Care will provide a fast-paced learning environment that will require the selective attention to numerous, competing visual and aural cues and delegatio ...

  8. Enhancing the User"s Experience in an Amputee Virtual Environment Support Space

    SBC: SIMWRIGHT, INC.            Topic: OSD11H04

    One of the most significant issues facing amputees leaving rehabilitation units is the loss of connectivity with peers and caregivers. The new Amputee Virtual Environment Support Space (AVESS) being constructed within Second Life is a great resource enabling social networking between returning amputees and caregivers. Emerging haptic devices and sensors could greatly increase the immersive nature ...

  9. Evidence-Based Evaluation Process for Traumatic Brain Injuries and Co-morbid Psychological Disorders in Service Members

    SBC: JXT Applications, Inc.            Topic: OSD09H07

    Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is associated with emotional and physical health problems, of which PTSD and depression are important mediators. Our Phase I research created a conceptual model for a user-friendly, empirically-based screening/tracking tool available to first responders and medical practitioners to screen for mTBI or other disorders. We assessed the co-occurrence of these co-mo ...

  10. Treatment of mTBI Balance Dysfuntion via Multimodal Biofeedback.

    SBC: BalanceSense LLC            Topic: OSD09H22

    Multimodal Sensory Enrichment Device (SEMD) is a medical device system for the testing and training of static and dynamic postural control of sway in patients with dizziness, balance deficit, and/or movement disorders. SEMD provides vibrotactile, visual, and audio cueing referenced to center of pressure for postural control of small and large movement tasks, limited locomotion, dual tasking, and s ...
