  1. A system to Predict and Analyze Novel and emerging Diseases Enabled by Models of Infection Conditions (PANDEMIC)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: DHP15008

    Incidences of infectious disease pose serious threats to armed forces worldwide, risking the success of critical operations and can be responsible for the deaths of Warfighters. Current approaches attempt to reduce severity of disease impact to operational forces by detecting, monitoring, and treating infected personnel after exposure, but this does not effectively maintain and sustain force healt ...

  2. Technologies to Train Myoelectric Prosthesis Users for Optimal Functional Outcomes

    SBC: Liberating Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DHP14011

    Myoelectric prostheses can help service members and civilians that have acquired or congenital limb loss restore function. Substantial training is required to allow individuals to take full advantage of their prosthesis. Unfortunately, currently available training tools are expensive, non-motivating, manufacturer specific and typically must remain in the clinic. One goal of this proposal is t ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Multimodal optical probe for intraocular visualization and surgery guidance

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: DHP15016

    Intraocular surgery is usually performed under the stereoscopic guidance using a surgical microscope. However, when the optical clarity of the cornea is severely compromised, precluding visualization of the retina and other intraocular anatomy, intraocular surgery becomes very difficult and with increased risk of irreversible error. Minimally-invasive needle-size endoscopic tools are available, bu ...

  5. Pre-Clinical Optimization of Human Brown Adipocyte Cell Therapy

    SBC: ENERGESIS PHARMACEUTICALS, INC.            Topic: A11aT034

    Presently available pharmacotherapy for diabetes and pre-diabetes can be effective initially, but the natural history of these conditions typically features deterioration of blood sugar control over time and the accumulation of disability. Importantly, the current treatment approaches do not halt the underlying disease. Approved drugs for overweight and obesity have only limited efficacy and most ...

  6. The Measurement of the Corneal and Scleral Surface for the Purpose of Automating Ocular Surface Prosthetic Fitting

    SBC: EYEdeal SCANNING            Topic: OSD11H09

    The objective of this proposal is to create an instrument to automatically measure the topology of the eye including corneal and scleral surfaces and create a highly accurate three dimensional model. The model is incorporated into two different ophthalmic programs for different applications. The first is a graphic interactive design tool to enable the doctor to create a computer simulated scleral ...

  7. Visual Evoked Potentials for TBI Assessment

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: DHP13011

    A lightweight, portable, robust system is proposed to detect and classify mild traumatic brain injuries rapidly in forward areas, based on on neuroscience and neurology-based algorithms and wearable computers of the newest generation.

  8. ACLAMATE: Automated Cognitive Load Assessment for Medical StAff Training and Evaluation

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: DHP13002

    Although great strides have been made in the development of simulators for training technical and teamwork skills, substantially less progress has been made with regard to their assessment. Typically, skills and performance are assessed by an expert observer using a Likert-type rating scale with anchors ranging from low to high. However, such methods are extremely coarse, and often provide little ...

  9. A system for augmenting training by Monitoring, Extracting, and Decoding Indicators of Cognitive workload (MEDIC)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: DHP13002

    US military medical personnel may be deployed to a variety of operational environments where their success saving lives depends on their ability to act quickly and effectively, both as individuals and as teams. Therefore, effective training must go beyond individual skills to include interactions among team members, and how those interactions transfer to operational environments. Currently, traine ...

  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 ...
