Liberating Technologies, a College Park Company, was recently awarded five new government grants totaling approximately $3.3 million.

The grants are funded through the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research (NCMRR); National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR); Defense Health Program (DHP) Small Business Innovative Research through the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP); and Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program's (CDMRP) Orthotics and Prosthetics Outcomes Research Program (OPORP).

The grant projects include developing a device to improve blood flow in residual limbs at risk of additional amputations; a powered hand orthosis; new technologies to train upper-limb myoelectric prosthesis users; and a system to obtain quantitative outcome measures related to optimizing lower-limb prosthesis balance and dynamic function.

“It's an exciting time for the Research and Development team." said Todd Farrell Ph.D, Director of Research at Liberating Technologies. "We are honored to receive these grants and be recognized for our innovative yet practical concepts that leverage our knowledge of the needs of the O&P field. We are eager to prove out our concepts and work with our new colleagues at College Park to transition them into the commercial marketplace."
