  1. Monitoring Metabolic Energy Expenditure Via the Prosthetics of Lower Extremity Amputees

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: OSD11H07

    Limb loss affects approximately 1.9 million people in the United States. It is well established that lower-limb amputees show greater metabolic demands during gait and more limited mobility compared to non-disabled individuals. Currently, there is no lower-extremity prosthesis available that can monitor the metabolic costs of the amputee. The proposed solution, code-named TEQUILA (Total Energy exp ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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

  5. 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. ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. A Nano-pharmaceutical Platform for Creating Artificial Vaccines

    SBC: PARABON NANOLABS, INC.            Topic: OSD11H01

    In this project, Parabon NanoLabs will employ its Essemblix(tm) Drug Development Platform, a combination of computer-aided design (CAD) software and DNA nano-fabrication technology, to produce artificial vaccines against the biothreat agent ricin on DNA origami decorated first with natural epitopes and ultimately with artificial epitotopes (hereafter"mimotope") constructed from a predefined set of ...

  8. Novel Vector Survaillance Trap for Flying Insects

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHP12007

    Civilian and military organizations throughout the world perform surveillance to combat vector-borne disease. Of particular concern to the U.S. military are mosquito genera Anopheles, Aedes and Culex, which are important vectors for malaria, dengue and West Nile virus respectively, and sand fly genera Phlebotomus and Lutzomyia, both vectors for leishmaniasis. The trap most commonly used for by U.S ...

  9. Improving Wound Healing by Combating Multi-Drug Resistant Pathogens Using Small Molecule Antimicrobials

    SBC: TECHULON, INC.            Topic: DHP15007

    Techulon has developed a platform based on peptide-peptide nucleic acids (PPNAs) molecules that are effective as antimicrobial compounds against multi-drug reisistant pathogens. Techulons targeted approach uses informatic algorithms applied towards an organisms genome to identify targets that will disrupt essential biological functions. The proposed Phase I project will focus on developing a new g ...

  10. Intelligent Automated Insect Collection System (IFICS)

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: DHP12007

    Flying insect vectors and the diseases they transmit continue to be a significant source of concern for United States service members deployed in field operations. In an effort to reduce contact between the vectors and humans, military entomologists are often required to perform surveillance to assess the prevalence of disease vectors and to evaluate the effectiveness of control measures. Survei ...
