Our application for a Small Business Innovative Research grant from the National Institutes of Health has been approved! The SBIR grant program is “a highly competitive program that encourages domestic small businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) that has the potential for commercialization.” More information about the mission and goals of the program can be found here.
Our grant, entitled “A Music-Based Rehabilitation Device for Training and Assessing Hand Function” will enable us to further refine the MusicGlove for home use. Importantly, it includes a partnership with UC Irvine to perform rigorous testing of the device in an at-home setting. This will enable us to stay true to our mission of providing high quality rehabilitation devices that are proven to be safe and effective. We look forward with confidence to this exciting opportunity.
