  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. A NANOeSPRi-based IVD Assay for Multiple Organ Injury

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: DHP14005

    Major organ injuries such as liver, kidney, heart and lung injuries can lead to high morbidity and mortality in critically ill patients. Advanced noninvasive testing with high sensitivity and specificity is needed to detect specific organ injury particularly at early stages. Current techniques such as PCR, MS, absorption-based assays, ELISA and microfluidic-Luminex, cannot meet such requirements. ...

  3. Technologies for Treating Cartilage Tissue Loss Following Traumatic Injury

    SBC: Spheringenics, Inc.            Topic: OSD10H04

    Traumatic injuries to the head and neck region comprise as much as 30 percent of all combat injuries observed today. These injuries often involve multiple tissues including dermal, muscle, cartilage and bone. This work aims to address this critical need by treating a composite tissue injury model in the ear. We will use an alginate microbead cell delivery system

  4. 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 ...

  5. eBionicskins: An Assistive Technology Sensor Platform

    SBC: PSIKICK INC            Topic: DHP13017

    PsiKick and Bionic Skins LLC will collaborate in this proposal to develop the eBionicskins system, an advanced instrumented prosthetic liner for monitoring the tissue interface within a prosthetic socket using a wireless sensing platform. PsiKicks ultra-low power electronics fit neatly within Bionic Skins vision for a complete redesign of prosthetic sockets with a variable-compliant interface tha ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. A Point-of-Care Device for Diagnosis of Platelet Injury in Trauma Patients

    SBC: HEMOSONICS            Topic: DHP13013

    HemoSonics LLC is developing an easy to use and easy to interpret diagnostic device to rapidly identify diffuse coagulopathies in order to guide proper and evidence-based interventions. The management of diffuse coagulopathies is extremely important in military medicine as these conditions represent a significant source of combat morbidity and mortality. HemoSonics device is based on sonorheome ...

  8. 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

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
