Advanced Biomechanical and Physiological Monitoring System for Amputees and Rehabilitating Personnel
Agency / Branch:
DOD / OSD
This SBIR Phase II project will develop and build a health monitoring sensor and analysis system to support the return of military personnel with prosthetic devices to active duty. DoD is allowing increasing numbers of soldiers with prosthetics to return to active duty if they are performance capable, minimizing the loss of their valuable core expertise to the services. There are significant challenges to monitoring physiological and biomechanical parameters of rehabilitating personnel in a non-laboratory environment and providing useful performance capability assessment data. This project will demonstrate that a small, non-intrusive sensor system can provide real-time analysis and presentation of human movement patterns and energy expenditure through motion and physiological monitoring. TenXsys, in conjunction with Boise State University will produce a field-capable Sensor Monitoring and Relay Transmission (SMART) system that will improve amputee monitoring, decreasing the likelihood of injuries due to overexertion and balance instability events.
