Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-06-06
Budget: 09/01/07 - 08/31/08

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Mobile bearing TKA implants are preferred owing to their potential to better restore natural knee kinematics, and could find increased acceptance if the important clinical concern related to increased wear is addressed. Equally, overcoming the materials fatigue related failures of polyethlylene (PE) tibial in...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 04/15/05 - 10/14/05

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Current interbody fusion devices for lumbar fusion need improvement owing to lower than desireable success in fusion and difficulty in postoperative assessment effusion. A promising and novel approach for intervertebral fusion is to provide a cortico-cancellous structure that can withstand spine load adequate...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/01/04 - 02/28/05

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Spinal disc herniation and the resulting symptoms of intractable pain, weakness, sensory loss, incontinence and progressive arthritis are among the most common debilitating conditions back problems. When conservative treatment fails, and diagnostic imaging evidence of nerve root or spinal cord compression is ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/01/04 - 02/28/05

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A novel and promising approach for achieving bony repair especially for large bone defects is to transplant human bone marrow stromal cells or mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs). Culture expanded hMSCs, transplanted into immuno-compromised recipient mice on porous Hydroxyapatite (HAP) or Tri-calcium phosphate (TC...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 04/18/03 - 10/17/03

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Zirconia bio-ceramics (e.g. Prozyr) have the highest toughness and strength compared to other bio-ceramics such as alumina (e.g. Biolox) or zirconia-toughened alumina (Biolox-Delta). However, as highlighted by the recent recall of St. Gobain zirconia heads, a critical need remains to develop bio-ceramics with...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/01/02 - 09/01/05

DESCRIPTION (Provided by Applicant): The implications of developing materials with enhanced fracture toughness, damage resistance, reliability and ultra low wear is of significant interest to the orthopedic community, since it directly addresses a vital clinical concern- eliminating wear debris mediated THA ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 08/01/01 - 01/31/02

DESCRIPTION: Recent developments and experience in aerospace/engineering applications has established a clear superiority of layered composite ceramics that have simultaneously high fracture toughness, high strength and excellent damage resistance to cyclic loads. The application proposes to optimize these materia...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/29/99 - 03/31/00

Recent developments and experience in aerospace/engineering applications has established a clear superiority of layered composite zirconia/steel couples as ultra low wear. This has a great potential for implant applications in virtually eliminating wear particle mediated osteolysis and consequent implant failures. Wear rates comparable to cera...
