Title: Integrating Sensor Technology into Synthetic Anatomical Training Models For Objective User's Performance Measurement
Agency: DOD
Contract: W81XWH-13-C-0059
Award Amount: $149,426.00
 

Abstract:

There is a need to accelerate the integration of advanced sensor technology into synthetic mannequins in order to facilitate objective measurement of user metrics during training and education activities. Although synthetic mannequins have become a common tool for medical training and education, until recently there have not been any artificial mannequins of sufficient anatomic or surgical fidelity for the performance of major operations. Operative Experience, Inc. has developed models and training modules to support the rapid training of combat medics and surgeons in approximately 20 critical trauma skills. These models will be enhanced through the incorporation of sensors to monitor, measure, and grade the performance medical trainees including trauma surgeons and combat medics as they undergo training. The phase I effort will consist of proof of concept demonstration by incorporating sensors in models for training in the diagnosis and treatment of tension pneumothorax and four compartment fasciotomy of the leg for compartment syndrome.
