  1. ADAPT-MP: Auto-Diagnostic Adaptive Precision Trainer for Myoelectric Prosthesis users

    SBC: Design Interactive, Inc            Topic: DHP14011

    More than 1,500 Americans have lost a limb due to traumatic injury in combat in recent years.Upper limb loss can be treated with myoelectric prostheses, but such devices require intensive training to effectively operate. The need to concentrate and continuously react during training often takes amputees many months, with the result that many patients abandon use of the prosthesis. In the Phase I e ...

  2. Objective Measurement Tool for Detection and Monitoring of Noise-Induced Hearing Loss

    SBC: Mimosa Acoustics Inc.            Topic: DHP15015

    We propose to take our hearing-test device, which was designed to support research in advancing hearing-conservation programs, and ruggedize it for use in theater. Five key challenges that make the commercial-off-the-shelf OAE systems unsuitable for HCPs, will be overcome. We will: 1) implement next-generation otoacoustic emission tests to enable OAE measurements in noise-damaged ears, 2) add smar ...

  3. An anatomy-enabled, augmented reality, point-of-care, telemedicine application

    SBC: ARCHIE MD INC.            Topic: DHP15002

    The ultimate goal of this research is to develop an augmented reality telemedicine system for military environments. The system will reconstruct the 3D poses of a casualty using monocular video streams, independent of the viewing perspectives and device characteristics of the camera. This pose will then be used to overlay anatomy and other medical information over the field medics view of the ca ...

  4. Discrete Event Simulation and Optimization Approach for Balancing Usability and Security for Medical Devices in an Integrated Clinical Environment

    SBC: Design Interactive, Inc            Topic: DHP15005

    Integrated clinical environments (ICEs) include medical devices and systems that process, store, and share sensitive data over networks. This requires that security concerns and data privacy be addressed. However, the design of such controls can conflict with the usability of the medical devices, especially in high pressure, time-sensitive conditions such as acute clinical and remote care settings ...

  5. Humeral Head Intraosseous Training System

    SBC: Simetri, Inc.            Topic: DHP13001

    Phase I research culminated in the delivery of a prototype single-arm humeral head HHIO PTT which was well received by users. The prototype trainer development focused on providing an accurate simulation of the humeral head IO procedure, and was shown through usability testing to have been successful. Follow-on research is now called for to develop this proven technology into a commercially viable ...

  6. Non-Invasive, Head-Mounted Measures of Vestibular Function

    SBC: Engineering Acoustics Incorporated            Topic: DHP14007

    Warfighters who have been exposed to blasts have reported high rates of vestibular symptoms such as dizziness, clumsiness, imbalance and vertigo. Overt symptoms may also include balance and spatial disorientation problems, vision disturbances, inner-ear e

  7. Novel Methods to Monitor Health Status and Clinical Laboratory Data: Portable Acquisition, Assessment, and Reporting

    SBC: Mimosa Acoustics Inc.            Topic: OSD09H26

    Mimosa Acoustics will develop a portable binaural audiological device, based on our successful HearID system. HearID is a clinical system for otoacoustic emission and middle-ear power analysis testing; it is FDA and CE-marked. The new system will have the ability to conduct a variety of audiological tests especially for use in hearing-conservation programs, including: flexible otoacoustic emission ...

  8. Enhancing the User"s Experience in an Amputee Virtual Environment Support Space

    SBC: SIMWRIGHT, INC.            Topic: OSD11H04

    One of the most significant issues facing amputees leaving rehabilitation units is the loss of connectivity with peers and caregivers. The new Amputee Virtual Environment Support Space (AVESS) being constructed within Second Life is a great resource enabling social networking between returning amputees and caregivers. Emerging haptic devices and sensors could greatly increase the immersive nature ...

  9. Treatment of mTBI Balance Dysfuntion via Multimodal Biofeedback.

    SBC: BalanceSense LLC            Topic: OSD09H22

    Multimodal Sensory Enrichment Device (SEMD) is a medical device system for the testing and training of static and dynamic postural control of sway in patients with dizziness, balance deficit, and/or movement disorders. SEMD provides vibrotactile, visual, and audio cueing referenced to center of pressure for postural control of small and large movement tasks, limited locomotion, dual tasking, and s ...

  10. Treatment of mTBI Balance Dysfuntion via Multimodal Biofeedback.

    SBC: Engineering Acoustics Incorporated            Topic: OSD09H22

    Traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when physical trauma causes temporary or permanent neurological damage. In some cases, symptoms can continue and contribute to disability. Dizziness and vertigo are associated with nearly all reported studies of mTBI and are a significant and functionally limiting component of the overall disability. This project has as its aim the development of a portable devi ...
