We are proud to announce that we have received two more Small Business Innovative Research grants from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR), a branch of the Department of Education. More information about the SBIR program can be found here.
One of these grants will enable us to refine RAE for at-home use, and, through a partnership with researchers at UC Irvine, to perform controlled testing of the device in an at-home setting. This is both to better understand the best way of using the device, and to ensure that we will provide our customers with a quality product. We are excited to begin providing people with devices they can take home and use to work on their rehabilitation or motor improvement outside of the clinic.
The other grant will allow us to do further research on the MusicGlove (again partnering with UC Irvine) to better understand the benefits it can provide to survivors of stroke. We firmly believe in having our devices backed by science. We are committed to providing our customers with tools that work, and only by adhering to rigorous scientific standards can we stand by our products with confidence.
