Portable Multi-Modal TBI (PMT) monitor
Agency / Branch:
DOD / DHP
Vivonics, Inc., together with clinical experts from the Mayo Clinic and the University of Utah proposes to develop a comprehensive diagnostic tool to detect and quantify mild brain injury (mTBI) in field applications using both visual evoked potentials (VEP) and non-invasive measurement of intracranial pressure (ICP). The combination of VEP and ICP measurement is likely to provide additional information that can prise apart subtle injuries in the field, enabling early intervention and lessening or avoiding long-term sequelae. The recording mechanisms used in the Portable Multi-Modal TBI (PMT) monitor are robust in the presence of motion, so that the PMT monitor will truly be a rugged tool that is invaluable in far forward medical triage. Our well-integrated clinical and engineering teams bring excellent understanding of mTBI and its sequelae, seminal expertise in use of VEP, along with the complementary ICP measurement technique that has already been implemented in prototype form.
