Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/30/01 - 02/28/03

DESCRIPTION (Applicant's Abstract): Although most health care practitioners would define carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) as an entrapment, or compression, of the median nerve at the level of the wrist (e.g. carpal tunnel), the diagnosis is often not clear cut. A major reason for ambiguity is that in its initial stages,...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/01/01 - 06/30/03

DESCRIPTION: (From the applicant's Abstract) One traditional quantitative animal assay for peripheral neuropathy involves measuring the animal's behavioral threshold to noxious thermal stimulation. A limitation of this approach is that thermally activated sensory populations are for the most part unmyeli...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/01/91 - 06/30/92

DESCRIPTION: (Investigator's Abstract) The project proposes to use the anterior eye (cornea and conjunctiva) and its sensory innervation as an assay of irritancy and toxic effects. The anterior eye has unique characteristics: extensive use in toxicology, permeability, relative ease of observation, and importance to the input of visual informa...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 06/01/91 - 11/30/91

Functional neuromuscular stimulation is a new and potentially viable method of assisting paraplegic patients in leading productive lives. With this technique, electrical stimulating electrodes are placed over the peripheral nerves that innervate specific muscle groups in the lower limbs. When the nerves are stimulated in proper sequence, it ha...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 03/01/90 - 08/31/90

Measurement of core temperature remains a significant problem, especially in hypothermic i\environments. Oral temperature readings are inaccurate and inappropriate for some types of patients. Rectal temperatures also often do not reflect true core temperature readings, are often considered invasive, and are inappropriate in cold environments. ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 12/04/88 - 06/03/89

The automated Tactile Tester performs repeatable, reliable and largely automated testing of touch, temperature and pain sensations from the skin. It is intended for use as a diagnostic tool in evaluating peripheral and central neuropathies and for experimental studies of somatic sensation. The micro-processor controlled device also keeps a rec...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 12/04/88 - 06/03/89

At present, no drugs have been developed that act directly to suppress the sensation of itch by inhibiting the response of the itch-signaling receptors that innervate the skin, in spite of the fact that there is a potentially large market for such products. Unlike pain research where there are well-developed human models for the assessment of p...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/01/86 - 03/31/87

We will build, test and evaluate a prototype model of our Automated Tactile Tester. This device is designed to provide for repeatable, reliable and largely automated testing of touch, temperature and pain sensations from the skin as a diagnostic tool in evaluating peripheral and central neuropathies. The microprocessor controlled device also k...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 04/15/86 - 10/14/86

At present, although there are steroidal medications that reduce local inflammatory reactions and local anesthetics that block sensory nerver fibers, there are no medications that act directly to suppress the sensation of itch by inhibiting the response of the itch-signating receptors that innervate the skin. In spite of the fact that there is ...
