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

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: DHP13002

    Military medical personnel must act quickly and efficiently in any operational environment. Their success in saving lives depends on their ability to act effectively, both individually and as a team. Therefore, training must address individual skills and knowledge as well as interactions among team members. Currently, trainers must infer competence across these dimensions using only observation of ...

  2. 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, much less progress has been made with regard to skill assessment. Typically, performance is measured using a rating scale with anchors ranging from"low"to"high."Such methods are too coarse to provide an accurate assessment of individual or team performance. What is needed are unobtrus ...

  3. Vector Arthropod Trap Using a CO2 Attractant Source

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: DHP13007

    The military desires an improved trap to capture and hold arthropods that may carry disease causing pathogens. A continuous source of carbon dioxide is needed over an 8 hour period to attract flea and tick species that are subsequently trapped and held alive for five days. Ideally, the arthropod trap will be smaller than a 2"diameter by 4.5"cylindrical shape to fit into burrows while also weighing ...

  4. A software tool to assess injury risk and maximum allowable exertions for repetitive, forceful one hand and two hand shoulder push/pull motions

    SBC: BioSensics LLC            Topic: DHP13008

    BioSensics LLC, in partnership with the Center for Advanced Orthopaedic Studies at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, will develop the shoulder injury risk assessment (ShIRA) software tool for a wide range of activities. The injury risk criteria and exposure assessment models will be developed based on expert opinion from shoulder surgeons, ex-vivo data on the biomechanics of the shoulder joint ...

  5. A Software Tool to Assess Injury Risk Associated with Mechanical Exposures From Wearing Head Supported Mass

    SBC: BioSensics LLC            Topic: DHP13009

    Military helmet systems increase the likelihood of low and high-severity injuries, but the additional risk of neck injuries associated with Head Supported Devices (HSDs) has not been quantified. It is necessary to determine safe and tolerable limits of HSD mass, spatial distribution around helmet systems, and exposure schedule, as they are important design criteria for future military helmets. Bio ...

  6. Visual Evoked Potentials for TBI Diagnosis

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: DHP13011

    War-fighters in forward combat settings are frequently exposed to concussive events (e.g., explosions, accidents, and falls), but resources for diagnosing mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBIs) in these settings are limited. As such, soldiers with impaired cognitive states are often sent into combat situations, exposing them to unnecessary risk and increasing the likelihood of long-term health cons ...

  7. Portable Multi-Modal TBI (PMT) monitor

    SBC: Vivonics, Inc.            Topic: DHP13011

    Vivonics, Inc., together with clinical experts from the Mayo Clinic and the University of Utah proposes to develop a comprehensive diagnostic tool to detect and quantify mild brain injury (mTBI) in field applications using both visual evoked potentials (VEP) and non-invasive measurement of intracranial pressure (ICP). The combination of VEP and ICP measurement is likely to provide additional info ...

  8. Immediate Application Cranioplasty During Decompressive Craniectomy for Head Injuries

    SBC: Fabrico Technology, Inc.            Topic: DHP13012

    Fabrico Technology, Professor Leonid Bunegin, and Dr Jeremy W. Canon of the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSC-SA), proposes to develop an Electrophoretic Decellularization Chamber (EDC) technology to produce a rigidity tuned Electrophoretic Decellularized Bio-Scaffold (EDBS) Cranial Bone - ExtraCellular Matrix (CB-ECM) Cranioplasty Prototype Construct (CPC) for the ev ...

  9. A Novel, Point-of-Care, Multi-Analysis Platelet Function Diagnostic System

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: DHP13013

    Platelets play a central role in hemostasis and are responsible for many inherited and acquired bleeding disorders and thrombic events in human beings. A significant portion of post-trauma deaths are related to coagulopathy or hemorrhage events for both injured soldiers and civilian patients. Several platelet function analyzers have been designed and developed; however due to form-factor and/or ...

  10. 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 ...
