10 Awards Won

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Northwestern University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N10A-T032
Budget: 01/24/12 - 10/24/12

Current otoacostic emission probes used diagnostic evaluation middle and inner ear components of hearing are not capable of producing well-calibrated and high-quality acoustic stimuli that cover the entire frequency range of human hearing and are thus unsuited for rapid evaluation of the range of inner ear damage from ototoxic drugs, noise and t...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-09-080
Budget: 05/25/11 - 04/30/13

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Approximately 10 percent of hearing aid wearers have 10 dB loss of ability to understand speech in noise, in the sense that they require a signal-to-noise ratio 10 dB better than normal-hearing listeners. Since at many restaurants and social gatherings the normal- hearing listeners themselves are forced to...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Northwestern University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N10A-T032
Budget: 06/28/10 - 04/30/11

Current otoacoustic emission probes used for diagnostic evaluation of the middle and inner ear components of hearing can not produce well-calibrated, high-quality acoustic stimuli that cover the upper frequency range of human hearing that is most easily damaged by ototoxic drugs, noise and the normal process of aging. The microphones in these de...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A04-199
Budget: 12/13/04 - 06/12/05

The objective of this project is to develop an earplug for use by helicopter crews, to be worn within the earcanal, and equipped with an active noise reduction (ANR) system, with performance for speech communication and hearing protection meeting U.S. Army safety requirements. From an analysis of the performance of earplugs with ANR, it appears...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/18/03 - 08/31/05

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term goal of this project is to help provide relief to persons whose hearing loss is so severe that they isolate themselves from normal social interactions, particularly in high-noise environments such as restaurants, it has long been recognized that such isolation may bring on mental and even physic...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 06/01/89 - 05/31/90

The ultimate goal of this research is to produce a "high fidelity" hearing aid as perceived by the hearing impaired user. This is the final phase of a research program started by the writer in the 1970's in an attempt to determine the design requirements for a high fidelity hearing aid for what should be the simplest case: individuals with a h...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 04/01/87 - 06/30/89

The goal of this research is to determine the practicality of adding subminiature amplifiers to the electrodes used for Auditory Brainstem Response recording in order to reduce or eliminate the need for scrubbing (often lacerating) the skin prior to electrode placement. If successful, the same amplifier system should also: 1. Permit more accu...
