NINDS invites small business innovation research applications to develop technologies that will advance the field of robotics. This announcement is made together with 17 other NIH components and 4 other federal agencies: the Department of Defense, the National Science Foundation, the Department of Agriculture, and the Department of Homeland Security.
During the past 5-10 years, tremendous progress in robotics technology has created new opportunities for automating tasks and enriching the lives of humans. NIH supports the development of robotic applications for surgery, health intervention, prostheses, rehabilitation, behavioral therapy, personalized care, and wellness/health promotion. Developing these applications is important to NIH because of the potential significant impact on healthcare in the future.
