Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-16-302
Budget: 09/15/17 - 05/31/18

Abstract In this Phase II SBIR project ASTER Labs will enhance a wireless WiFi-based insole that was designed and successfully tested and evaluated during a Phase I trial with elderly persons with dementia and their caregivers, and then investigate its efficacy in reducing caregiver activity and burden, and improving caregiver quality of life. A...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-15-269
Budget: 09/30/16 - 03/29/17

Project Summary/Abstract Recent research shows that many individuals with neuromuscular, neurological, and developmental disorders, including those suffering physical injury or tremors, are at a higher risk of poor oral health, including more dental caries, periodontal disease, and soft tissue pathology compared to those without disability. This...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-15-269
Budget: 09/01/16 - 08/31/17

Project Summary/Abstract For the 35 million Americans, primarily older adults, with no remaining natural teeth, and 178 million with at least one tooth missing, the use of removable dentures can have many benefits, including improved mastication, nutritional intake, speech, and appearance, as well as social interaction and emotional confidence. ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: The Regents of the University of Minnesota

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T4.03
Budget: 06/10/16 - 06/09/17

The proposed novel program will develop and demonstrate a new approach to perform real-time relative vehicle localization within a swarm formation with application to communication-less coordination. These objectives are achieved by using Random Finite Sets statistics theory to solve the multiple object tracking problem. The swarm formation loca...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-14-071
Budget: 09/30/15 - 08/31/16

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): An estimated 1 in 3 people over age 65 are physically unable to cut their own toenails, and 77% of those surveyed admit to difficulty in performing this essential task for routine podiatric health. On average, shoulder abduction and hip flexion decrease 5 to 7 degrees per decade from age 55, and over a degree...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-13-088
Budget: 09/01/14 - 07/31/15

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): An estimated 5.4 million Americans had Alzheimer's disease in 2012 and a 50% increase in this number is expected by 2030. The majority of these patients (70%) will live at home where they receive 75% of their care from informal caregivers, unpaid individuals such as family members, friends, and neighbors. Th...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-Z20.01
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The proposed novel program will use measurements of high-energy photon output from celestial gamma-ray sources to design a new, unique navigation system for a deep space CubeSat demonstration. An integrated CubeSat design will be developed to demonstrate the performance and feasibility of the Gamma-ray source Localization-Induced Navigation and ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-H9.05
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

This program proposes to design and evaluate novel technology of X-ray navigation for augmentation and increased capability of high data-rate spacecraft communications. NASA's current concept for an integrated radio and optical communications (iROC) system is being developed to provide communication technology that does not constrain the science...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 11-1-O4.02
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

The proposed novel program will use measurements of the high-energy photon output from gamma-ray celestial sources to design a new, unique navigation system. This Gamma-ray source Localization-Induced Navigation and Timing, or "GLINT", concept provides deep-space vehicles the capability for self-navigation based upon measurements from observatio...
