  1. Biomechanical Rat Testing Device to Validate Primary Blast Loading Conditions for Mild Traumatic Brain Injury

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A17AT022

    Blast induced Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a major threat to the health of military personnel serving in modern theaters.As such, the biomechanical injury pathways of TBI are, and have been, the focus of many animal studies.However, differences in the experimental setups across laboratories make it difficult to draw definitive conclusions from the resulting data.A tool that can accurately estim ...

  2. 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 signif ...

  3. Development of an Automated Vascular Access Device

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHA173003

    Vascular access is among the first and most critical steps in the stabilization and treatment of critically injured soldiers and civilians. In the field, where patients are volume-depleted from blood loss or dehydration, vasoconstricted, or hypothermic, traditional peripheral venous access and CVC access becomes exceedingly difficult. We propose a self-contained device that significantly simplifie ...

  4. Multi-Function In-Ear Probe

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHA18001

    The nature of military operations leads to high noise levels, exposing personnel to the possibility of noise induced hearing loss (NIHL). Individual hearing monitoring is conducted yearly which can only provide a record of the progression of irreversible hearing loss with limited options for intervention and mitigation. Furthermore, there is limited data that links actual, real-world noise exposur ...

  5. Compact System for Sound Field Testing of Hearing Performance

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHA18007

    Hearing loss is the third most common chronic physical condition in the U.S.more prevalent than diabetes or cancer. Globally, in 2015, about one half billion people had disabling hearing loss, or roughly 6 to 8% of the world population. Occupational hearing loss is one of the most common work-related illnesses and the most common service-related disability among veterans. As a result, more individ ...

  6. Mobile Applications/Web-Based Management Solutions for Hearing Injuries

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHP14008

    Hearing loss and tinnitus remain the most common service-connected disabilities, and may be caused by excessive noise exposure, as well as blast and impulse noise.Soldiers who experience tinnitus or mild-to-moderate hearing loss tend to have difficulty understanding speech-in-noise.While peripheral hearing loss can be addressed with amplification through a hearing aid, significant rehabilitation i ...

  7. Field Deployed 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 eithe ...
