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

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP15011

    Vascular trauma is the leading cause of death in military environments and hemorrhage is the major preventable cause of mortality among trauma patients. Recent experience from Iraq and Afghanistan has demonstrated improved 24-h and 30-day survival in combat casualties requiring early massive transfusion. Unlike plasma and erythrocytes, which can be cold stored for longer time periods, platelets ca ...

  2. Optimal Rewarming Solutions for Cryopreserved Tissue Systems

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHP15014

    TDA, working with our collaborators, proposes to develop a novel RF heating process for rewarming cryogenically preserved tissues and organs.We have demonstrated high heating rates with the nanoparticles during the Phase I project. In the Phase II project, we will improve our already high heating rate by optimizing the RF heating process, along with the type, size and morphology of the nanoparticl ...

  3. 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 ...

  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. 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 ...

  6. 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

  7. 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 ...

  8. Technology for Genitourinary Tissue Repair

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHP16012

    The advancements in body armor combined with better combat casualty care have greatly increased the survival rate of soldiers suffering battlefield trauma injuries. The increased survivability, however, has resulted in an increase of wounded warriors being sent home with severe injuries that ultimately reduce their quality of life post-treatment, especially those with severe damage to genitourinar ...

  9. Portable Iron Screening System for Point-of-Care Iron Status Determination

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP16005

    Iron deficiency is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies in the United States. Left untreated, iron stores continue to deplete, resulting in iron deficiency anemia. Women undergoing basic military training are particularly susceptible to reduced iron stores. To date, there are no comprehensive point-of-care instruments for accurate determination of iron status. We propose to develop a no ...

  10. Technology for Sterile Water Generator

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHP16007

    Currently, deployed medics are required to transport, maintain and be resupplied with liquid-based medications and materials that are heavy, expensive to transport, perishable and may require refrigeration.Many medications and materials are or will be available in dehydrated formularies that require sterile water for injection (SWFI) to rehydrate for immediate use, such as freeze-dried platelets.I ...
