  Neural Stimulation 


National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke

The Neural Prosthesis Program of the National Institute of

Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), National Institutes of

Health, is seeking a contract to develop stimulating electrodes that

permit safe, reliable, and graded activation of selected muscles for

use in functional neuromuscular stimulation (FNS).  The studies will

concentrate on developing electrodes that are capable of selectively

activating specific functional muscle groups required by a

collaborating clinical group.  In order to encourage the broadest

competition, the particular muscles to be stimulated are not

specified.  The offeror will define this focus in association with a

collaborating clinical research group.  Personnel with established

expertise in physiology, biomedical engineering, electrode

development, and animal testing are needed.  It is anticipated that

one award will be made for a period of three years in September 1993.

This notice is not the Request for Proposals (RFP).  To receive a

copy of the RFP, please submit a written request to the address

indicated above, and supply this office with two self addressed

mailing labels.  A RFP will be issued on or about January 11, 1993

with proposals due on March 10, 1993.  All responsible sources shall

be considered by the agency.
