To address the DHP need for a biometric model to address dismounted complex blast injury of the pelvis, abdomen, and genitals, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Pelvic Model with multi-Sensory Data Acquisition (ELVIS). This proposed model is based on the combined development of a numerical model for blast effect prediction for different impact forces and an anatomically correct pelvic model with a number of physical sensors, which will be used to provide comprehensive information about the blast effect and to validate the numerical model. The innovation in the simultaneous development of a numerical model and an anatomically correct physical model that can be used for separate tests or numerical model validating will provide the medical research community with a superb tool for the dismounted complex blast injury study. In Phase I, POC will demonstrate the feasibility of ELVIS by developing a simplified numerical model and validating it against the sensor measurements from a physical prototype. In Phase II, POC plans to further develop the epidemiology study and develop a comprehensive injury prediction model for various blast effects.
