  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Medical Simulation-Based Training System for Rapid Trauma Skills Training

    SBC: OPERATIVE EXPERIENCE, INC.            Topic: OSD08H11

    Combat surgery training is an essential mission of the US Armed Forces. Courses such as Emergency War Surgery Course (EWSC) and Advanced Trauma Operative Management (ATOM) have been developed to meet this requirement. However, these courses do not cover all relevant procedures and rely on animals and cadavers which limits their utility. Operative Experience Incorporated will further improve the tr ...

  8. Hands-Free Kinetic System for Medical Simulation

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: OSD10H06

    Today, medical simulators such as medical mannequins play an essential role in training combat medics, doctors, nurses, and other military medical personnel. The more realistic those medical simulators are, the more effectively the trained personnel can act in the real situations. To be fully useful in such critical training, however, medical simulators need to
