Title: HITS Hemorrhage Instrumented Training System
Agency: DOD
Contract: W81XWH-13-C-0061
Award Amount: $149,928.00


Junctional and non-compressible bleeding is a life-threatening injury that requires immediate intervention. Therefore it is best to train even non-medics in the application of the life-saving methods to stop these hemorrhages. The ideal system would enable training on multiple injury types, react realistically to properly applied intervention, utilize the adjuncts as would be used in the field, and provide immediate, quantified feedback as to the trainee"s performance. In consideration of these requirements, Infoscitex is developing a physical mannequin that can provide the most realistic representation of junctional and non-compressible hemorrhage. The Hemorrhage Instrumented Training System (HITS) presented here is designed specifically for this purpose and includes the following features: - Realistic full-body mannequin enables training of body repositioning as necessary with medical intervention - Multiple pre-molded injuries allow rapid test setup for the instructor and allows multiple scenarios for the trainees - Realistically clotting blood analogue provides accurate and realistic response to appropriately applied interventions - Water cleanup makes test reset easy and quick - Instrumented mannequin skin and vasculature provide data that conforms with standardized scoring systems such as SCORM.
