  1. Automated Vestibular Rehabilitation Management System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHA182005

    Dizziness is a common complaint, with about one third of the population experiencing dizziness at some point in their life. Vestibular rehabilitation targets vestibular adaptation and substitution for patients with vertigo and dizziness of vestibular origin. Unfortunately, vestibular rehabilitation requires specialized physical therapists who may not be accessible to service members or the general ...

  2. Chronological Sweat Sensor Patch for Real-Time Human Molecular Biomarker Monitoring

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHA18003

    Sweat contains biomarkers that give an indication of human cognitive levels. In this SBIR project TDA Research is developing a modular sweat sensor patch that has the capability to not only carry out real-time monitoring of select biomarkers, but also to collect multiple precisely time stamped chronological samples (50-150 Ls each) for off-line analysis in laboratory assays.In Phase I, we demonstr ...

  3. Development of a field-appropriate biosensor for detecting Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection

    SBC: NANORETE, INC.            Topic: OSD11H05

    nanoRETE is a developing a nanoparticle-based biosensor technology platform that has the ability for real-time detection of pathogens. Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) that primarily affects the lungs. In Phase I research, nanoRETE demonstrated proof-of-concept of an electrochemical nano-bead biosensor for measuring plasma cytokine and chemokine concentrati ...

  4. Development of a Wearable Bladder Monitoring System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHA172012

    Soldiers with spinal cord injury (SCI) face a lifetime of bladder dysfunction. Although the type and character of this dysfunction depends on the severity and level of spinal injury, many of these soldiers and veterans suffer from renal insufficiency, frequent and severe antibiotic-resistant bladder infections, and the emotional and social stress of unexpected bladder leakage. We propose that sign ...

  5. Development of an Automated Vascular Access Device

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHA173003

    Vascular access is a critical and early step in the stabilization and treatment of critically injured soldiers and civilians. Traditional peripheral intravenous (PIV) access and central venous cannulation (CVC) access becomes exceedingly difficult in the field, particularly in patients who are volume-depleted from blood loss or dehydration, vasoconstricted, or hypothermic. We propose a self-contai ...

  6. Field Deployable Otoacoustic Emissions Probe for Objective Tracking of Noise-Induced Hearing Loss

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHP15015

    Progressive noise-induced hearing loss may jeopardize a service members ability to be deployed or continue in communication-critical job duties. It is the fourth leading cause of medical referral for service members returning from deployments. Distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAEs) are a sensitive objective screening tool. However, commercially available DPOAE measurement systems are ...

  7. Integrated Sensors for Balance Augmentation

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHP12008

    Soldiers recovering from mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) or relearning how to walk on a prosthetic lower limb often struggle with their balance. Of patients recovering from acute blast-induced mTBI, almost all (90%) report unsteadiness. These balance deficits affect ability to return to duty and ultimately quality of life. Recent research has shown that improvements can be made in upright st ...

  8. Lightweight, Compact System for Generating Lactated Ringer's Solution

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHA172011

    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 soon be available in concentrated or dehydrated formularies that require sterile water for injection (SWFI) to rehydrate for immediate use, one of the ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
