  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. 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 ...

  3. Systems Biology Based Tools for Modeling Platelet Storage Lesion for Optimal Blood Transfusions

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP15011

    Trauma is the leading cause of death in civilian and military environments and acute hemorrhage contributes to a large portion of these fatalities. Recent experience from Iraq and Afghanistan has demonstrated the crucial role of blood products in the care of critically injured soldiers. Unlike plasma and red blood cells, which can be cold stored for longer time periods, platelets can be safely sto ...

  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. Ultraviolet Communication for Medical Applications

    SBC: Imaging Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: A11110

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II effort proposes to extend research conducted under the initial Army Phase II project to demonstrate a multi-beam ultraviolet (UV) transceiver system that employs cutting edge optical technology elements and algorithms. In this context, Imaging Systems Technology (IST) will utilize UV communication

  6. A rapid and high-throughput microfluidic stem cell analyzer

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD11H14

    Current methods for stem cell isolation are time-consuming, costly, and labor-intensive, and ill-suited for point of care applications. To overcome these limitations, we propose to develop and demonstrate a high-throughput, non-invasive, microfluidic stem cell analyzer to enable a rapid isolation of high-quality stem cell products from clinically relevant samples. Our technology enables significan ...

  7. Physics and Physiology Based Human Body Model of Blast Injury and Protection

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP13010

    The vast majority of injuries in recent military conflicts have been inflicted by improvised explosive devices (IEDs) causing brain, extremities and genital-urinary injuries. Advanced computational models of IED blast physics and human body injury biomech

  8. A Neck Injury Assessment Tool

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP13009

    The overall objective of the proposed project is to develop new injury criteria, model based risk assessment methodology, and a software tool to assess neck injury risk from head supported mass (HSM) loading. Based on the foundation of Phase I feasibility studies, the proposed Phase II work will focus on model enhancement, extension and validation, risk assessment, and software integration and tes ...

  9. Shoulder injury risk and exertion assessment tool

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP13008

    Musculoskeletal injury among military personnel is an under-recognized problem where shoulder injuries are significant and result in inflammation and pain from overuse, joint derangement, sprain/stain/rupture, and dislocation. Health hazard assessment is essential to ensure that fielded equipment and occupational duties do not exceed human capabilities over short and long term exposures. Hazard ...

  10. 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 ...
