The project has received support from a host of disciplines.
The other inventors of RAM are from the Case Western Reserve physics department, including Distinguished University Professor Bob Brown, research associate Bob Deissler, former director of physics laboratories Bill Condit, mechanical designer Rick Bihary and technician Jason Jones, who began working on the project as an undergrad in 2011.
The team received advice and assistance from the MEM program, the Functional Electrical Stimulation Center, departments of mechanical and aerospace engineering, materials science and engineering, and biomedical engineering, the Tech Transfer Office, the law clinic, the Center for Global Health & Diseases, think[box] and more. Funding from the Coulter-Case Foundation and the Clinical and Translational Science Collaborative enabled the team to test ideas and build prototypes.
The Lewandowskis and Grimberg will discuss the RAM device at the launch of the Blackstone LaunchPad at CWRU, at Kelvin Smith Library, Tuesday, April 23 at 1 p.m. They're scheduled to attend a National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Alliance entrepreneurship workshop in Boston this week and compete for $25,000 in a business plan competition at the University of Washington later this month.
