Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: DHP15-015
Budget: 09/30/16 - 02/28/19

We propose to take our binaural OtoStat-HCP hearing-test system, which was designed for advanced hearing-conservation programs (HCPs), and ruggedize it for use in theater. OtoStat-HCP includes pure-tone audiometry, otoacoustic emission (OAE), and wideband immittance tests. Commercial-off-the-shelf OAE systems are unsuitable for HCPs, so we will...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Health Program
Topic: DHP15-015
Budget: 09/25/15 - 04/24/16

We propose to take our hearing-test device, which was designed to support research in advancing hearing-conservation programs, and ruggedize it for use in theater. Five key challenges that make the commercial-off-the-shelf OAE systems unsuitable for HCPs, will be overcome. We will: 1) implement next-generation otoacoustic emission tests to enabl...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Health Program
Topic: OSD09-H26
Budget: 02/09/15 - 02/09/16

Mimosa Acoustics will develop a portable binaural audiological device, based on our successful HearID system. HearID is a clinical system for otoacoustic emission and middle-ear power analysis testing; it is FDA and CE-marked. The new system will have the ability to conduct a variety of audiological tests especially for use in hearing-conservati...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

Agency: Navy
Topic: N10A-T032
Budget: 09/22/11 - 03/15/13

OAE has proved to be an important measurement for hearing conservation programs. OAEs are sounds made by healthy inner ears in response to acoustic stimulation and are measured in the ear canal with a miniature microphone. One impediment to OAE testing on a large scale, such as in military hearing conservation programs, is the lack of a high-qua...

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

Recently there has been a push to get otoacoustic emission (OAE) testing into adult hearing-conservation programs, because the early stages of noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL), and susceptibility to NIHL, can be detected with OAEs. OAEs are sounds made by healthy inner ears in response to acoustic stimulation and are measured in the ear canal w...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD09-H26
Budget: 05/05/10 - 11/09/10

Mimosa Acoustics will develop a portable binaural audiological device, based on our successful HearID system. HearID is a clinical system for otoacoustic emission and middle-ear power analysis testing; it is FDA(510k) approved and CE-marked. The new system will have the ability to conduct a variety of audiological tests especially for use in hea...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-07-80
Budget: 09/01/08 - 08/31/10

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Clinical pure tone audiometry is the most basic hearing test. However, measurements obtained with a standard pure tone audiometer do not take into account the large individual differences in the volume of the ear canal and concomitant differences in the acoustic impedance of the ear. As a result, an audiomete...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-06-20
Budget: 04/01/07 - 03/31/08

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A wide range of devastating brain injuries cause brain swelling or bleeding. Because the skull is fixed in volume, increases in the volume of its contents result in increases in intracranial pressure (ICP). Elevations of ICP can lead to worsening brain injury or death by compressing either blood vessels suppl...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/07

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of newborn hearing screening is to identity infants with inner ear pathology (IEP), but most neonates who fail screening have conductive disorders (CD) rather than IEP, resulting in high false positive rates and costly follow-up diagnostic evaluation. The Rhode Island study (1993) has shown that the ...
