Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD02-DH03
Budget: 09/22/03 - 09/22/05

This Phase II proposal describes the development of a comprehensive, field-ready, computer-based simulation for training in therapeutic ureteroscopy. Built on a foundation for simulating diagnostic ureteroscopy, the Phase II design combines elements from two recently advanced simulation platforms for training in operative hysteroscopy and endova...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/01/03 - 06/30/05

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This revised Phase II proposal describes the development of three simulation modules for training n therapeutic endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP): sphincterotomy, stone extraction, and stenting. The proposed work builds on a recently completed prototype simulator for diagnostic ERCP. A ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A01-180
Budget: 01/13/03 - 01/13/05

This Phase II proposal describes the development of a comprehensive, portable computer-based simulation for training in needle thoracentesis. The system will include refined hardware, underling software, and educational content created to meet needs defined by clinical faculty. Proposed technical advances include: incorporating a software framew...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD02-DH03
Budget: 12/19/02 - 06/30/03

This project aims to demonstrate technical design feasibility for a training simulator for therapeutic ureteroscopy. Key software advances proposed include generating photo-realistic endoscopic views with appropriate lighting, generating fluoroscopic and 3-D transparent views, simulating local tissue surface deformation and real-time collision p...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: George Washington University

Agency: Army
Topic: ARMY01-T007
Budget: 11/01/02 - 10/31/04

This Phase II proposal describes the development of a comprehensive, fieldable computer-based simulation for training in central lines placement (CVC). The system will include refined hardware, underlying software, and educational content created to meet needs defined by clinical faculty. Structured evaluation will help guide and validate system...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A01-180
Budget: 12/15/01 - 12/13/02

Immersion Medical aims to establish the feasibility of a medical training simulator for needle thoracentesis. The proposed project involves several technical advances to Immersion's pre-existing simulator for needlestick procedures. We propose a haptic computer touchpad as an innovative solution to three tactile techniques used in thoracentesis:...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A01-190
Budget: 12/15/01 - 06/14/02

Immersion Medical aims to establish the feasibility of a medical training simulator for epidural anesthesia and spinal tap. The proposed project involves several technical advances to Immersion's pre-existing simulator for needlestick procedures. We propose a haptic computer touchpad as an innovative solution to the palpation of anatomical landm...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Uniformed Services University

Agency: Army
Topic: ARMY01-T007
Budget: 12/03/01 - 07/01/02

Immersion Medical and the Uniformed Services University of Health Science (USUHS), aims establish the feasibility of a medical training simulator for Central Venous Catheterization (CVC). The proposed project involves several technical advances. Tactile feedback user interface hardware designs will be researched to serve as a realistic proxy for...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/01/00 - 12/31/00

Less invasive cardiovascular interventional techniques, such as transcatheter placement of endovascular grafts, are increasingly being developed. A large challenge to the adoption of these new procedures is physician training. HT Medical proposes research that will provide an opportunity for training without risk to patients. The goal of this ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 06/01/99 - 05/31/00

Embryonic development is a dynamic, three dimensional process, posing significant challenges for the research and teaching communities that disseminate current research findings. Although a great deal of research effort has focused on understanding developmental processes including morphological changes t...
