  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, 400,000 of whom have amputations above the knee. It is well established that lower-limb amputees show greater metabolic demands during gait and more limited mobility compared to non-disabled individuals. At present, there is no lower-extremity prosthesis available that can monitor the metabolic costs of the amputee. The propo ...

  2. Noninvasive 3-D optical quantitative imaging of engineered tissue

    SBC: DIAGNOSTIC PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: OSD11H08

    This project will bring interferometric synthetic aperture microscopy (ISAM), a powerful new method of computed microscopy, to bear on the problem of quantitative tissue assessment. The promise of tissue engineering, including wound healing, is limited unless the tissue is treated correctly at optimal times during growth. Therefore, continuous, nondestructive, microscopic 3-D visualization and qu ...

  3. Apps for Rapid Epidemiological Analysis (AREA)

    SBC: IST Research Corp.            Topic: OSD11H17

    IST Research proposes the creation of the Disease Early Warning Sensor System. The IST Research Team will bring together considerable experience to bear on deploying technology in austere environments, developing android applications, hardening the android operating system, geospatial and temporal visualization of SMS based reporting and information collection, crowd-sourced data collections, and ...

  4. Medical Modeling and Simulation Based Training Return on Investment Decision Model

    SBC: MYMIC, L.L.C.            Topic: OSD11H19

    Modeling and simulation (M & S) technologies provide the capability for high-quality training in many areas of medicine while simultaneously reducing the costs and risks involved. However, M & S technologies require significant investment to realize their benefits, and it is crucial to have an appropriately designed system to best attain training objectives. The aim of this research is to develop ...

  5. Technologies for Treating Cartilage Tissue Loss Following Traumatic Injury

    SBC: Spheringenics, Inc.            Topic: OSD10H04

    Phase I studies demonstrate that human adipose stem cells (ASCs) exhibit characteristics of chondrocytes when cultured in chondrogenic media (CM) and this is enhanced when they are first encapsulated in low viscosity, high mannuronate content alginate beads that are less than 200fYm in diameter containing 250 cells/bead. The microencapsulated cells express mRNAs for factors associated with chondr ...

  6. Bioactive Superporous Hydrogels with Vascular Channels for Muscle Tissue Engineering

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: OSD11H12

    There is a substantial clinical need in both civilian and battlefield injuries for the repair and regeneration of large-volume-loss skeletal muscle tissue injuries. Current standards of care rely on rotational tissue grafts and often result in substantial morbidity, pain, and disfigurement. Luna Innovations Incorporated proposes the development of a hierarchically organized, superporous hydrogel c ...

  7. Advanced Blood Simulant for Simulation Based Medical Trauma Training

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: OSD10H01

    The proposed Phase II program is designed to build upon the successes of the Phase I feasibility study and develop an advanced blood simulant for training of combat first responders in the use of modern hemostatic products. The blood simulant will exhibit a caking/clotting response in the presence of simulated hemostatic agents while accurately approximating the viscosity and color of human blood ...

  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. 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 ...

  10. Non-Radiological Imaging Devices for Combat Casualty Care Associated with Burn

    SBC: SED Technology LLC            Topic: OSD11H03

    SED Technology LLC is proposing an existing concept of determining burn area and depth based on extensive previous work involving infrared technology. The proposed concept involves the use of all capabilities associated with 2D and 3D Infrared that have been developed by Dr. Francine Prokoski in the areas of Biometrics, Forensics and Health Care applications. The concept could eventually provide a ...
