Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-14-071
Budget: 02/10/15 - 01/31/16

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term goal of this project is to develop prosthetic foot technology that can function differently for different activities. Although current prostheses can be very effective for particular tasks (e.g. walking, running, or standing), an amputee must choose a single prosthesis to achieve reasonably goo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-12-088
Budget: 08/15/13 - 02/28/14

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Robotic Amputee Gait Capacity Assessment System Robotic prostheses can improve mobility for individuals with amputation, but assessment and prescription for each individual is difficult and errors are costly. We propose to determine the feasibility of a product that allows rapid, objective assessment of the ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-11-096
Budget: 06/01/12 - 12/31/13

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term goal of this project is to develop prosthetic foot technology that can function differently for walking and standing tasks. Although current prostheses can be very effective for particular tasks (e.g. walking, running, or standing), an amputee must often choose a single prosthesis to achieve re...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-09-080
Budget: 06/15/11 - 05/31/13

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Health management of older adults can be improved through convenient and objective assessment of their gait. Although a number of quantitative measures of walking, such as the variability of steps taken, have been shown to predict the risk of falls, these measurements are difficult to obtain outside the labo...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-06-20
Budget: 09/01/08 - 08/31/10

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term goal of this project is to develop an intelligent prosthetic foot that reduces the energy consumption of walking in amputees. Commercial prostheses use passive mechanisms to provide articulation, cushioning against heel impact, and elastic energy return; yet the energetic cost of amputee walkin...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-06-20
Budget: 09/30/07 - 08/31/09

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Convenient and objective assessment of gait is important for health management of older adults. Measuring gait function and mobility objectively can assess adherence and progress in an exercise or rehabilitation program, or track dosage and efficacy of medication. Accurate measurements can be taken in the cli...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-06-20
Budget: 09/28/07 - 08/31/08

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term goal of this project is to develop an intelligent prosthetic foot that reduces the energy consumption of walking in amputees. Commercial prostheses use passive mechanisms to provide articulation, cushioning against heel impact, and elastic energy return; yet the energetic cost of amputee walkin...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Michigan

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

This Small Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project aims to develop an actively controlled prosthetic foot that makes walking easier and more comfortable for the lower limb amputees. Commercial prostheses use passive mechanisms to provide articulation, cushioning against heel impact, and elastic energy return; yet the energetic cost o...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Washington

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will develop a wide-bandgap, thin-film semiconductor to enable a high-efficiency light-absorber layer for the top cell in monolithic tandem or multi-junction thin-film photovoltaics. Because of relatively high device packaging costs, tandem junction thin-film photovoltaic devices ca...
