AURA Tool Featured in NASA Spinoff Publication

Barron Associates’ Algorithms for Uncertainty Representation and Analysis (AURA) software tool has been developed over more than a decade into a flexible and highly optimized commercial software package capable of addressing a wide variety of stochastic modeling and simulation problems.  The tool is featured in the recently released 2020 edition of NASA’s Spinoff publication.  According […]

Barron Associates’ PREEMPT System Presented at APTA Conference

Barron Associates PREEMPT system was presented at the American Physical Therapy Association Combined Sections Meeting in Colorado on February 14, 2020. The PREEMPT system provides an effective, accurate, noninvasive, and practicable method for automatically documenting patient mobility, providing the desired activity and body posture information that is relevant in both hospital and senior care settings. […]

“Onboard Turbulence Recognition System for Improved UAS Operator Situational Awareness” Paper Presented at SciTech 2020

This paper describes the development and testing of a turbulence recognition and decision support system for UAS that reliably quantifies turbulence and communicates results to pilots in a manner that is consistent with existing weather products.  It provides two primary outputs related to turbulence level, an estimate of turbulence severity category that is consistent with […]

Blink-based Communication System Presentation at ATIA Conference

Barron Associates presented a poster at the Assistive Technology Industry Association conference in January on the “Development and Testing of a Blink-based Communication (BLINC) System for People with ALS”.  The Blink-based Communication (BLINC) System is intended to support Persons with ALS (PALS) and others with severely impaired mobility and vocalization capabilities by providing a reliable […]

Barron Associates begins KneeBRIGHT Clinical Trial for Video Game Rehab

The “Knee Biofeedback Rehabilitation Interface for Game-based Home Therapy (KneeBRIGHT)” system 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. Barron Associates has begun a clinical trial to assess the efficacy of the KneeBRIGHT system at improving function for […]

Barron Associates Awarded Phase II Grant to Develop Next Generation Animal Monitoring Technology Following Successful Feasibility Effort

Barron Associates is developing the Rodent Physiologic Analysis and Recording (RODAR) System. The RODAR system embodies a wireless, noninvasive data collection, visualization, and storage solution for monitoring animals’ physiological status, behavior, and environment. The RODAR system offers continuous or intermittent recording, synchronization, and real-time display of physiologic data and environmental data including. The system also […]

Barron Associates Receives NIH Grant to Develop Monitor for Oxygen Therapy

Barron Associates was recently awarded an NIH Phase I SBIR grant to develop the Respiratory Oxygen Adherence Monitor (ROAM) system to reliably assess long term oxygen therapy (LTOT) adherence. LTOT is associated with significant reductions in hospitalizations and improved quality of life in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Despite the benefits of LTOT, […]

Barron Associates Completes Pilot Testing of Smart Toy System for Children with Cerebral Palsy

The Motivating Occupational Virtual Experiences In Therapy for kids (MOVE-IT) SBIR program supports intensive rehabilitation for pediatric hemiplegia through smart toy-enabled games that inspire high-dosage, task-directed arm movements. The completed SBIR Phase I research program produced a prototype smart toy, two therapy mini-games, human kinematics tracking software, and validated motor performance metrics. A pilot study […]

NASA Phase II SBIR Award for Development of a Turbulence Modeling and Decision Support System for UAM

Enabling increasing levels of autonomy envisioned for future airspace operations without compromising flight safety will require novel technologies for predicting turbulence, automatically planning missions that minimize turbulence hazards, recognizing and quantifying turbulence in flight, and appropriately and automatically responding to inflight turbulence.  In the context of a passenger carrying DEP VTOL vehicle, Barron Associates previously […]
