  1. Point of Injury Device to Maintain and Stabilize Intracranial Hemorrhage- CryoLATCH

    SBC: JTAP Technologies, LLC            Topic: DHA17010

    The goal of this project is to develop an operational medical device to target and mitigate intracranial hemorrhage in advance of surgical intervention. This will require the development of a prototype device that targets specific volumes of tissues. The technology could be coupled with existing or novel imaging/targeting methods. The device will be designed to treat epidural hematoma (EDH) and ...

  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 sonorheometry ...

  3. Developing Software for Pharmacodynamics and Bioassay Studies

    SBC: TCONNEX INC.            Topic: DHP16C001

    Estimation of the primary parameters like IC 50 in traditional dose-response modelsmay fail or lead to misleading results when the observations are non-onotonic due to drugresistance or virus mutation in various biomedical lab research. The objective of this project isto develop a novel approach to assess dose response relationship, which is applicable to generalpharmacologic, toxicologic, or othe ...

  4. A Hand-Held Non-Contact Burn Triage System Utilizing Visible and Thermographic Imaging in 3D.

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: DHP16C005

    Thermal injuries are common in all modern military conflicts and care given shortly after a severe burn is critical to its treatment and recovery. Triage for burn injuries is primarily separated into superficial burns which will heal naturally, and deep burns which require surgery. In far-forward environments non-expert combat medics must make burn triage decisions without the aid of lab equipment ...

  5. Healastomers: Unique Shape-Memory and Self-Healing Polymer Complexes for Medical Simulation Applications

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: DHA17002

    Medical simulation bridges the gap between classroom presentation and live tissue training. As medical simulation has improved and become even more lifelike and realistic, the need for enabling technologies that can lower the cost, improve the reusability, or provide added value by enhancing the training experience has become clear. One of the needed technologies is an elastomer that can exhibit s ...

  6. BioloGel- Building Blocks for Osteochondral Regeneration

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: DHA17009

    Current strategies for the treatment of osteochondral injuries are ineffective and are associated with significant side effects. Microfracture techniques have demonstrated limited efficacy over long periods of time and are less effective for larger osteochondral defects. Osteochondral autograft transplants require harvesting from a donor site, which can lead to donor site morbidity. And while auto ...

  7. Smart Morphing Moulage Medical (SM3) Training Platform

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: DHA17A002

    Medical moulage is used in medical training to simulate injuries or pathologies, however current moulage is static and does not provide the trainee feedback on the quality of care or ultimate outcome of that care. Allowing a trainee to witness the injury or pathology -morph- while treatment is being provided can provide feedback on any potential mistreatment and enhance the learning and proficienc ...

  8. Technologies for Treating Cartilage Tissue Loss Following Traumatic Injury

    SBC: Spheringenics, Inc.            Topic: OSD10H04

    Regeneration of cartilage and cartilage repair are challenging due to limited cellularity of the tissue and the failure of allografts and tissue engineered cartilage constructs to integrate with host tissue. To overcome this limitation, many surgeons are

  9. Synthetic Tissue Trainer- Development of Realistic Tissue Elements for Surgical Task Training for Mangement of Combat Injuries

    SBC: Sim Vivo            Topic: OSD10H09

    The main outcome of this proposal will be the development of a new generation of task training manikins that will provide a realistic training platform for the instruction of invasive trauma resuscitation procedures (ITRP) such as peripheral IV insertion,

  10. A Nano-pharmaceutical Platform for Creating Artificial Vaccines

    SBC: PARABON NANOLABS, INC.            Topic: OSD11H01

    In this project, Parabon NanoLabs (PNL) will demonstrate the feasibility of extending its Essemblix(tm) Drug Development Platform, a combination of computer-aided design (CAD) software and DNA nano-fabrication technology, to produce Essemblix-V, a platform for creating artificial vaccines from a predefined set of"building block molecules"assembled on DNA origami. Given an epitope for a potential ...
