Under sponsorship of the National Eye Institute, Barron Associates, Inc. is developing a video gaming system for children with amblyopia or convergence insufficiency. Sustained game play over a prescribed therapy regime is intended to improve visual acuity in patients with amblyopia and positive fusional vergence in patients with convergence insufficiency. In September 2018, Barron Associates […]
Barron Associates successfully completed a 5 year SBIR Phase III program funded by NASA Glenn Research Center. The program focused on developing runtime assurance (RTA) methods for turbofan engines with advanced control systems. In year 4 of the program, Mr. David Neal developed a new design approach that improved the performance of NASA’s engine protection […]
Barron Associates has developed an Automated Upset Recovery System for Small Unmanned Air Systems (SUAS) and successfully demonstrated the system through a series of flight tests on multiple fixed-wing vehicles. The flight tests showed reliable recoveries from a variety of unusual attitude and high angular rate flight conditions, and demonstrated that the system performs well […]
Barron Associates employees Aaron Olowin, Matt Lichter, and Rick Adams attended the launch of the AFSPC-11 Atlas 5 rocket on Saturday, April 14 at Cape Canaveral, FL as guest of the United Launch Alliance (ULA). The rocket carried AFRL’s EAGLE spacecraft which hosts sensor electronics and software developed by Barron Associates, Inc. A CBS news […]
Under a Phase I grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, Barron Associates has developed custom sensors, electronics, and software that enable a commercial glove orthosis, the SaeboGlove, to be used by stroke patients in conjunction with the SaeboVR software to practice activities […]
Barron Associates developed a novel balance prosthesis for individuals with balance disorders. The BALCAP prosthesis provides feedback to wearers via a substitute sensory channel regarding head orientation and motion. Such sensing emulates natural vestibular function; the head-mounted BALCAP gyroscopes sense rotational motions, similar to the semicircular canals, and the accelerometers sense gravity and translational acceleration, […]
The GRASP system promotes recovery of hand function following stroke through an instrumented orthosis that enables functional practice of manual tasks in fun and engaging activities within a virtual environment. The effort combines patented sensor glove technology developed under the NASA space suit program with a commercial hand orthosis and modern game engine technology. Barron […]
Barron Associates has developed the “Knee Biofeedback Rehabilitation Interface for Game-based Home Therapy (KneeBRIGHT)” system that combines electromyography (EMG) biofeedback with video game therapy to provide knee osteoarthritis (OA) patients with an engaging, effective tool for conducting rehabilitation exercises at home. KneeBRIGHT aims to motivate patients with knee OA to conduct regular muscle strengthening exercise […]
