In volume 20(20) 5/24/91 the following announcement and address was
listed. This may be of interest to those of you interesed in design
and develoment of microtransducers that sense joint angles.


MICROSTIMULATORS AND MICROTRANSDUCERS FOR FUNCTIONAL
NEUROMUSCULAR STIMULATION

RFP AVAILABLE: NIH-NINDS-91-12

P.T.

National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke

The Neural Prosthesis Program (NPP) of the National Institute of
Neurological Disorders and Stroke, NIH, is developing safe, reliable,
and effective systems for functional neuromuscular stimulation (FNS) in
spinal cord injured individuals. Such systems require the integration
of both motor and sensory function into a paralyzed limb. A contract to
develop an implantable microstimulator was begun two years ago and
considerable progress has been made. In this requested research effort,
the development of the microstimulator will be continued and the
development of a microtransducer to sense joint angle will be initiated.
The Contractor will be required to exert its best efforts to develop
implantable, microsized receiver-stimulators and transducer-telemeters
for functional neuromuscular stimulation (FNS). It is anticipated that
one award will be made for a period of three years in January 1992.

This is not a Request for Proposals (RFP). To receive a copy of the
RFP, please submit a written request to the following address, and
supply this office with two self-addressed mailing labels. All
responsible sources shall be considered by the agency. The RFP will be
issued on or about May 29, 1991, with proposals due on July 29, 1991.
