Bruin Biometrics awarded NIH Grant for OrthoSonos

 Bruin Biometrics’ award includes $150K in direct funding for the development of OrthoSonos, a novel device created to advance the new standard of care in orthopedics with acoustic emission technology. The device is under development to assess joint degradation by detecting friction across the full range of motion to provide clinicians with more data regarding joint health than x-rays alone can provide.

The award was made through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program, a highly competitive program designed to stimulate scientific and technological innovation with the potential for commercialization amongst domestic small businesses. During peer review, applications are evaluated based on the likelihood for the project to exert a sustained, powerful influence on the research field(s) involved.

Physicians wanting to learn more about OrthoSonos should contact Dr. Herman Lelie (hlelie@bruinbiometrics.com) or visit www.bruinbiometrics.com.
