  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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

  5. Novel Trap for Ticks and Fleas Incorporating a CO2 Generator

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHP13007

    Military personnel must be protected from diseases transmitted by ticks and fleas, including Lyme disease. Effective surveillance of tick and flea vectors is vital to determine the population present, whether they are carrying disease, and whether control campaigns are working. Unfortunately, current surveillance tools are ineffective. In Phase I TDA designed, prototyped, and tested a novel ti ...

  6. Novel Rewarming Technique for Cyropreserved Tissue

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHP15014

    TDAs proposes to develop a novel RF heating process for rewarming cryogenically preserved tissues and organs. TDAs approach is to optimize the RF frequency and power, along with the chemical composition, size and morphology of infused nanoparticles so that they heat tissue samples rapidly and uniformly. In this manner, the cryoprotectant solutions pass from the vitrified state to the liquid stat ...

  7. Long-lasting Disposable Insecticidal / Repellent Fabric Barrier for Personal or Area Protection Against Biting Arthropods

    SBC: Widder Bros., Inc.            Topic: DHP13003

    We propose to build a commercially viable spatial repellency device that requires no outside energy for activation (fire, electricity or air flow). Currently, no other indoor or outdoor spatial device exists that meets these criteria and no other device offers prolonged protection without refilling or replacing the device. Our development work relied heavily on using proven production techniques ...

  8. Systems Biology Based Tools for Modeling Platelet Storage Lesion for Optimal Blood Transfusions

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP15011

    Trauma is the leading cause of death in civilian and military environments and acute hemorrhage contributes to a large portion of these fatalities. Recent experience from Iraq and Afghanistan has demonstrated the crucial role of blood products in the care of critically injured soldiers. Unlike plasma and red blood cells, which can be cold stored for longer time periods, platelets can be safely sto ...

  9. Optimal Rewarming Solutions for Cryopreserved Tissue Systems

    SBC: CELL PRESERVATION SERVICES INC            Topic: DHP15014

    CPSI Biotech personnel have developed solutions and devices for the cryopreservation and hypothermic storage of human cells and tissues. Devices being -tested include SmartFreeze and SmartThaw - instruments designed for the improved cryopreservation and thawing of stem cells to be used for stem cell therapy. This SBIR grant application proposes to identify pre-conditioning and post-conditioning ...

  10. TELTAN: TELemedcine over a TActical Network

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: DHP15002

    Combat medics can quickly be overcome with the variety and number of injuries received by fellow warfighters. Virtual Interactive Presence and Augmented Reality (VIPAR) systems already in place have shown great potential in alleviating these problems, but require too many prerequisites to use in the field. Expensive and specialized pieces of hardware are an additional strain on warfighters, and of ...
