University of Michigan Pediatric Device Inventors Awarded Funds to Design Child-Specific Medical Devices
Date:9/23/2011

o have the most potential from a business and medical standpoint. Researchers working on these prototypes hope to ultimately find manufacturers to build and market these devices. The FDA will fund the following projects:

  • Daniel Teitelbaum, M.D., a U-M C.S. Mott Children's Hospital pediatric surgeon whose team has developed treatments for children with short bowel syndrome, won funding for work on a device that induces small intestinal lengthening without surgery.  

Short bowel syndrome occurs when large portions of the small intestine are removed by surgery or are missing due to a birth defect. The small intestine is too short and cannot absorb enough nutrients from food. The condition can be treated with medication, bowel lengthening surgery and at times and with mixed results, a bowel transplant. Teitelbaum's team has developed a prototype that has gone through various stages of testing in animals with positive results.

  • Jeanne Nervina, D.M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor at the U-M School of Dentistry, is developing a smart rapid palatal expander to treat children with cleft palate. The project includes designing and testing the smart palate expander using microengineering and low power circuits that sense and respond to orthopedic forces.
  • Robert Bartlett, M.D. and Gail Annich, M.D., are working on non-clotting, biofilm- resistant catheters for use in newborns. This was one of M-PED's first two projects and has made substantial progress in the last two years. The overall goal of this project is to develop small intravascular catheter for neonates to address the clotting and infection problems with catheters in children. This project expects to go to commercialization within two to three years.   

Developing medical devices for children has been a priority for the FDA in recent years. There are no good data that track pr
