This phase I SBIR project will develop a trauma unit that combines emerging life support technology with innovative wireless units that can transmit vital patient data to a central computer. The applicant intends to develop a separate, low-cost, soldierborn monitoring module that is capable of long-term battery operation (several days per charge) and able to transmit the patients location using GPS and vital information regarding the patients survivability; assessed by diagnostic software modules underdevelopment by the applicant. The wireless module will be designed (during phase II) to fit into a military uniform, provide silent mode operation, and to communicate with the stretcher mounted trauma unit. The stretcher unit will house the remainingdevices comprised primarily of life support modules and a back-up module to provide vital monitoring functions in the event of failure (of the soldier worn unit). The phase I research will demonstrate the feasibility and suitability of including eachmodule in the final system and will conclude with design suggestions for phase II. The applicant has developed several FDA approved field portable modules that will serve as components in the proposed system. The remaining components that fulfillfunctional requirements of this solicitation will be outsourced.
