A member of the principal professional staff at APL, Mr. Harshbarger has served as program manager and systems supported integrator for over $100 million in federally supported research over the past four years. His portfolio included the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) sponsored Revolutionizing Prosthetics 2009 Program. Mr. Harshbarger will continue to serve as Principal Investigator on the DARPA program in his capacity with OrthoCare, and will maintain an affiliation with Johns Hopkins University through an appointment as a Principal Research Scientist in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

In his DARPA role, leading what is arguably the largest and most ambitious domestic prosthetic research and development initiative in many decades, Mr. Harshbarger and his team have been widely recognized for their work with awards including: the 2009 IEEE/EE Times Creativity in Electronic Design Award, the "2009 Technology Winner" by the IEEE Spectrum Magazine and the 2007 Popular Mechanics Technology Breakthrough Award.

"I am honored to be joining the OrthoCare Innovations team. Having worked closely with the Company as both a Scientific Advisory Board Member and a customer, I have been consistently impressed with both the talent and personal commitment of the OrthoCare staff to improving the state of rehabilitation technologies and quality of life outcomes," commented Mr. Harshbarger. "I am excited to be able to play a key role in the growth of the Company, while also maintaining my close collaboration with my colleagues at Johns Hopkins, to affect the transition of emerging dual-use technologies from the research laboratory into clinical practice."

"The addition of this world-class talent led by Stuart Harshbarger is a testament to the quality and strength of our team, our technologies and our strategic vision," commented OrthoCare CEO Doug McCormack. "This additional capacity will enhance OrthoCare's ability to execute on its business plan and make a significant contribution to the field."

Joining Mr. Harshbarger is Dr. Matthew Kozlowski, a lead engineer in the biomedicine and National Security Technology groups at APL. Dr. Kozlowski, who received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Duke University, has played a key role in the DARPA Revolutionizing Prosthetics 2009 Program. His current work in the area of robotics includes the development of advanced dexterity for future ground explosive ordnance disposal robot systems. He also leads the common architecture and overall systems engineering efforts for the Navy's Advanced Explosive Ordnance Disposal Robot Systems.
