16 Awards Won

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: SRI International

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: 739552
Budget: 05/01/15 - 02/26/16

As the carry and protective gear of the modern war fighter increases, the burden on the human body will necessarily increase. In our present TALOS MkIII project, we are developing lower body augmentation to preserve speed and agility while bearing this weight. Yet we cannot ignore the impact of this weight on the upper body: in this project we...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: RFA-HD-14-029
Budget: 08/01/14 - 04/30/15

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Project Abstract Cerebral palsy and spina bifida affect thousands of children in the United States alone each year. These children are often unable to walk without utilizing braces;however, these orthoses are cumbersome, energetically costly, and must be frequently replaced as the child grows. These factors l...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SB103-001
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

We propose to develop a lower body exoskeleton device that will enable the wearer to perform super-human running with a reduced metabolic cost. As the carry load and protective gear of the modern war fighter increases, the soldiers? agility is significantly limited and their metabolic cost of movement increases. The proposed exoskeleton will ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SB103-001
Budget: 12/10/13 - 12/09/14

We propose to develop an exoskeleton device that significantly reduces the load the user bears while introducing a negligible metabolic impact. The proposed device employs a novel approach to the issues associated with excessive loading and represents a significant deviation from previous attempts to meet this need. We will develop a lightweigh...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Health Program
Topic: DHP12-008
Budget: 03/26/13 - 11/11/13
PI: Tim Swift

With this Phase I SBIR project we intend to develop technical solutions to the primary issues limiting the feasibility of a stand-alone real-time balance feedback device. We intend to develop a technique that uses multiple sensors to estimate the orientation of the user s body segments in the presence of real world disturbances. The effort will ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: EI-2012
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13
PI: Tim Swift

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project seeks to address the significant technical barriers associated with an untethered overground cooperative gait rehabilitation exoskeleton. Current gait rehabilitation techniques available to patients with gait abnormalities include conventional therapist based rehabilitation and more ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB103-001
Budget: 10/24/11 - 02/15/13

One of the current limitations for mobile robotics walking is efficient actuation. The standard actuation technologies that have been used in mobile robotic platforms are servo-hydraulics, electro-hydraulics and electro-mechanical actuation. The hydraulic options have a high power density and pack well but are very inefficient leading to carryi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB103-001
Budget: 03/01/11 - 03/31/12

Hydraulic actuation systems for mobile robotics are characterized by high bandwidth, high power density, robust operation, flexible power transmission but also by low efficiency, high rejected heat, and high noise levels. The undesirable characteristics of hydraulic power systems are not inherent to fluid power transmission; they are the result...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of California, Berkeley

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BE-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project proposes the development of an integrated powered knee-ankle prosthesis. The objective of this proposal is to investigate the use of integrated powered knee and ankle joints in trans-femoral prostheses that use sensory information from the ground and the wearer. The hypothesis is th...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of California, Berkeley

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: V1-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project proposes will study the technology barriers associated with creating exoskeleton assist devices for workers in distribution centers and automobile assembly plants. By using these devices, workers can dramatically reduce the load in the vertebrae of the lower back when maneuvering pa...
