Research Institution

The confluence of genetics, mobile computing, wearable sensors and computational physiology has started the revolution in personalized medicine with huge civilian and military prospects to promote health and reduce costs. The goal of this project is to develop and demonstrate a Warfighter Health Avatar (WHA): a framework and physiology based modeling tools of a warfighter body to enable assessment of his/her health status, performance and injury trajectory. In Phase I we have developed and successfully demonstrated a prototype WHA platform in the form of a user friendly, personalized App on mobile platforms with interfaces to wearable sensors and supported by models of human physiology, biomechanics and injury. It was demonstrated on several military medicine use scenarios. In Phase II the WHA platform will be further developed, integrated and validated on available clinical data. The final WHA product will enable user friendly setup of the warfighter body parameters and physiological vitals and will enable simulations of his body responses to various stressors, physical activities and injuries. The WHA Mobile App product will be made available to military users including researchers, military medics, casualty care physicians and to individual warfighters and veterans. This WHA App will have huge commercial application in sports
