  1. Technologies to Train Myoelectric Prosthesis Users for Optimal Functional Outcomes

    SBC: Liberating Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DHP14011

    Myoelectric prostheses can help service members and civilians that have acquired or congenital limb loss restore function. Substantial training is required to allow individuals to take full advantage of their prosthesis. Unfortunately, currently available training tools are expensive, non-motivating, manufacturer specific and typically must remain in the clinic. One goal of this proposal is t ...

  2. A rapid and high-throughput microfluidic stem cell analyzer

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD11H14

    Current methods for stem cell isolation are time-consuming, costly, and labor-intensive, and ill-suited for point of care applications. To overcome these limitations, we propose to develop and demonstrate a high-throughput, non-invasive, microfluidic stem cell analyzer to enable a rapid isolation of high-quality stem cell products from clinically relevant samples. Our technology enables significan ...

  3. Shoulder injury risk and exertion assessment tool

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP13008

    Musculoskeletal injury among military personnel is an under-recognized problem where shoulder injuries are significant and result in inflammation and pain from overuse, joint derangement, sprain/stain/rupture, and dislocation. Health hazard assessment is essential to ensure that fielded equipment and occupational duties do not exceed human capabilities over short and long term exposures. Hazard ...

  4. Pre-Clinical Optimization of Human Brown Adipocyte Cell Therapy

    SBC: ENERGESIS PHARMACEUTICALS, INC.            Topic: A11aT034

    Presently available pharmacotherapy for diabetes and pre-diabetes can be effective initially, but the natural history of these conditions typically features deterioration of blood sugar control over time and the accumulation of disability. Importantly, the current treatment approaches do not halt the underlying disease. Approved drugs for overweight and obesity have only limited efficacy and most ...

  5. The Measurement of the Corneal and Scleral Surface for the Purpose of Automating Ocular Surface Prosthetic Fitting

    SBC: EYEdeal SCANNING            Topic: OSD11H09

    The objective of this proposal is to create an instrument to automatically measure the topology of the eye including corneal and scleral surfaces and create a highly accurate three dimensional model. The model is incorporated into two different ophthalmic programs for different applications. The first is a graphic interactive design tool to enable the doctor to create a computer simulated scleral ...

  6. ACLAMATE: Automated Cognitive Load Assessment for Medical StAff Training and Evaluation

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: DHP13002

    Although great strides have been made in the development of simulators for training technical and teamwork skills, substantially less progress has been made with regard to their assessment. Typically, skills and performance are assessed by an expert observer using a Likert-type rating scale with anchors ranging from low to high. However, such methods are extremely coarse, and often provide little ...

  7. Visual Evoked Potentials for TBI Assessment

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: DHP13011

    A lightweight, portable, robust system is proposed to detect and classify mild traumatic brain injuries rapidly in forward areas, based on on neuroscience and neurology-based algorithms and wearable computers of the newest generation.

  8. A system for augmenting training by Monitoring, Extracting, and Decoding Indicators of Cognitive workload (MEDIC)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: DHP13002

    US military medical personnel may be deployed to a variety of operational environments where their success saving lives depends on their ability to act quickly and effectively, both as individuals and as teams. Therefore, effective training must go beyond individual skills to include interactions among team members, and how those interactions transfer to operational environments. Currently, traine ...

  9. A Neck Injury Assessment Tool

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP13009

    The overall objective of the proposed project is to develop new injury criteria, model based risk assessment methodology, and a software tool to assess neck injury risk from head supported mass (HSM) loading. Based on the foundation of Phase I feasibility studies, the proposed Phase II work will focus on model enhancement, extension and validation, risk assessment, and software integration and tes ...

  10. Physics and Physiology Based Human Body Model of Blast Injury and Protection

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP13010

    The vast majority of injuries in recent military conflicts have been inflicted by improvised explosive devices (IEDs) causing brain, extremities and genital-urinary injuries. Advanced computational models of IED blast physics and human body injury biomech
