Research Institution

This project is divided into a refinement phase and an optional advanced technologies phase. The first year will be devoted to development of a simplified SynDaver Basic (SB) model, a more advanced male full body (SSH-MFB) version of the SynDaver Synthetic Human, and simple sensing technologies to allow the SSH to be used in armor and MRAP development. The second year will focus on development of a synthetic body which can breathe, bleed, and react autonomously to injury. This capability will transform the SSH from an animated cadaver into a true synthetic human patient, will virtually eliminate the need for live animal use in military training, and usher in a new type of training environment called"Synthetic Reality". Synthetic Reality (SR) is a natural next step in the evolution of medical simulation, involving the combination of a synthetic human body with a synthetic"brain"to drive body functions. The marriage of these elements yields the SynDaver Synthetic Human Patient (SSH-SHP), a product which can replace a human patient in virtually any scenario, from the need to stitch up a deep cut, remove colon polyps, install a coronary stent - or even treat traumatic brain injury or an IED-related amputation.
