Research grants

  • S.M.A.R.T. Mounting and Positioning Technology
    NIH SBIR Phase 1 (2011-12)Goodwin (PI) 10/2011-8/2012This project will result in scalable, modular, and accessible robotic positioning technology to enable individuals with severe physical limitations to reposition devices independently.
  • Portable Transfer Technology for Boarding Boats
    Goodwin (PI) 1/2010-12/2010Paralyzed Veterans of America Research Foundation: Development grant, pilot projectThis project furthered research into a transfer system to enable individuals with mobility impairments to more safely board boats. Research focused on the drive and lift mechanism (powered or manual) which provides a controlled descent, mechanical advantage as a person ascends, and holds its position when the controls are released; an adjustable seat platform/trolley; and an angle adjustable rail system, ranging from flat to vertical.
  • Accessible Mounting and Positioning Technology for People with Disabilities
    NIH SBIR Phase 2 (2005-07)Goodwin (PI) 8/2005-12/2007This project will result in a modular mounting system, attaching to wheelchairs or tables, which individuals with limitations in strength, reach, and dexterity can access, and reposition independently.
