Systems and Devices for Training and Imaging an Awake Test Animal

Researchers at the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) have developed an apparatus that is used to image rodents while they are awake. The biological effects of agents on the rats can be imaged (via MRI for instance) in real time over a prolonged period of time.

Robotic Exoskeleton for Treatment of Crouch Gait in Children with Cerebral Palsy (CP)

Researchers at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center (NIHCC) and Northern Arizona University (NAU) seek licensing and/or co-development research collaborations for a wearable, pediatric, robotic exoskeleton that facilitates knee extension during walking to provide motorized movement assistance and training through the gait cycle. The Robotic Exoskeleton is specifically designed for therapy of crouch gait in children with cerebral palsy (CP). The design is a customizable human-machine interface that allows an individualized assistance protocol to help preserve and enhance muscle strength and control. Early clinical results from this intervention appear promising for a condition having few effective long-term interventions.

Microosmometer for the Study of a Wide Range of Biological, Macromolecular, Polymeric, Gel, or Other Samples

Scientists at the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute for Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) have discovered that changes in the osmotic pressure of tissue or hydroscopic samples having a mass of less than about one microgram and that can exert a high osmotic pressure can be measured by this method. The NICHD seeks research and co-development or licensees for a method of measuring small physical changes in small quantities of materials.
