  1. 3D Printed Digital nanocomposite synthetic tissue

    SBC: Advanced Life Technologies, LLC            Topic: DHP12003

    Surgical training requires an understanding of the human body"s complex 3-dimensional anatomical structures and the spatial relationships of nerves, blood vessels and other vital structures. Learning these spatial skills requires a lengthy training period and much practice that usually takes place in the operating room while under the supervision of a senior surgeon at great financial cost and pot ...

  2. 3D Printed heterogeneously integrated sensors embedded in Anatomical training models

    SBC: Advanced Life Technologies, LLC            Topic: DHP12002

    Currently there are over 20 types of procedural simulation models available for surgical skill training. Despite the large number of simulators currently available, there is a definite need for low cost anatomical training models with integrated sensors capable of recording the location and pressure measurements of a user"s performance in training of surgical cuts, manipulation and suture. Ideally ...

  4. A Human Body Model for Computational Assessment of Blast Injury and Protection

    SBC: HYPERCOMP, INC.            Topic: DHP13010

    In this proposal, a team comprising of HyPerComp and Aerojet-Rocketdyne shall create a computational system for the detailed modeling of the interaction of the human body with blast waves. The model will be able to address complex geometry and physics of the blast scene, as well as anatomical detail of the human body with adequate resolution. Nonlinear equations of state, adapted to individual tis ...

  5. A Portable Multimodality System for in-field Airway Injury Assessment and Compliance Measurement

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DHP16C006

    Airway compromise is the third leading cause of potentially preventable death on the battlefield.Current evaluation techniques of the airways associated with smoke inhalation injury are highly subjective and lack the sensitivity required of an accurate diagnostic and assessment tool.The problem of detection is further compounded by the late onset of symptoms that in many cases do not present until ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. A Universal Device for Performing Cricothyrotomies

    SBC: INNOVITAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: DHP13015

    Many emergency cricothyrotomy kits have been developed in an attempt to simplify this potentially life-saving medical procedure. However, none of the existing kits perform noticeably better than the standard surgical kit. The standard kit itself has led to a reported failure rate of 33% when performed in combat environments, and airway obstruction is reported to be the third most preventable cau ...

  10. 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 ...
