  1. A New High Sensitivity High Resolution Sensor for X-Ray CT

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: OSD11H15

    To address issues of sub-optimal performance of current X-ray CT scanners used by the first re-sponding providers to expedite diagnosis and triage, we are developing a novel scintillator that offers a unique promise to achieve high-sensitivity, high-resolution X-ray imaging through its integration into exist-ing CT detectors. The material we propose is recently discovered, and offers exceptionall ...

  2. A portable, light-weight, gaspowered, cooling device (PLCD, Portable Limb Cooling Device) for prolonged field damage control of injured ischemic limbs

    SBC: Moveo Walks, Inc.            Topic: DHA182003

    We hypothesize that a combination of advanced insulating fabrics and a cooling method (gas-operated) can be integrated into a portable, light-weight device for field/en route controlled limb cooling.We aim to fabricate a prototype portable device for limb cooling, test its efficacy, and optimize its in preparation of large animal and human trials.The cooling device will consist of a mechanism for ...

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

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD11H14

    Current methods to discern the differentiation state of stem cells are time-consuming, labor-intensive, costly, invasive, and consequently, ill-suited for clinical applications. To overcome these limitations, we propose to develop a microfluidic stem cell analyzer for accurate, non-invasive identification of the cell differentiation state in conjunction with automated cell sorting at high-throughp ...

  4. Anterior Eye OCT-based Profiler for Automating Ocular Surface Prosthetic Fitting

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: OSD11H09

    The use of a Prosthetic Replacement of the Ocular Surface Environment (PROSE) device is a revolutionary treatment for military patients that have lost their eyelids due to 3rd degree facial burns as well as for civilians who suffer from a host of corneal diseases. However, custom manual fitting is often a protracted painful, inexact process that requires multiple fitting sessions. Training for ne ...

  5. Automated Vascular Access in Trauma Patients

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: DHA173003

    A portable point of care device is proposed with features to enable rapid, automated, vascular access with single-stick accuracy by a medic with limited experience.A user-friendly GUI guides the medic in the devices use. Novel proprietary algorithms are employed to recognize key anatomical features and to determine an optimal vascular access site even with poor quality images.A miniature camera-ba ...

  6. Biosensor and Controller for Closed Loop Anesthesia Delivery System

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: DHP12012

    A sensor for rapidly and reliably measuring the blood concentration level of an intravenously administered analgesic/anesthetic medication is proposed, providing a key feedback element for closed loop target controlled infusion analgesia/anesthesia (TCIA) systems. The addition of direct measurement of analgesic/anesthetic concentration to existing physiological/neurological feedback will address F ...

  7. Chronological Sweat Sensor Patch for Real-Time Human Molecular Biomarker Monitoring

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHA18003

    Sweat contains biomarkers that give an indication of human cognitive levels. In this SBIR project TDA Research is developing a modular sweat sensor patch that has the capability to not only carry out real-time monitoring of select biomarkers, but also to collect multiple precisely time stamped chronological samples (50-150 Ls each) for off-line analysis in laboratory assays.In Phase I, we demonstr ...

  8. Clinical Decision Support for Dermatology Diagnosis in No-Communications Theater Environments

    SBC: 3Derm Systems, Inc.            Topic: DHA182001

    This proposal will investigate the requirements for an automated system that can provide triage, treatment, and diagnostic support for skin infections and other non-domestic dermatological conditions military personnel are at risk of contracting. 3Derm Systems, Inc. will utilize a patent-pending, color-calibrated 3D skin imager along with a deep understanding of teledermatology and patient/dermato ...

  9. Cohort Builder for Healthcare Quality Assurance and Comparative Health Effectiveness Research

    SBC: Commonwealth Informatics, Inc.            Topic: DHP12006

    The goal of this project is to field an easy-to-use but highly capable cohort builder, integrated with Military Health System (MHS) data resources, that will enable clinicians, nurses and QA personnel to efficiently conduct clinical quality assurance and comparative effectiveness research studies, and to identify groups of chronically ill patients for whom there are opportunities for care remediat ...

  10. Compact Speaker Array for Clinical Testing of Ear-level Devices

    SBC: FTL Labs Corporation            Topic: DHA18007

    While clinical audiometry is most often conducted with headphones, there are many practical cases where it is desirable to measure the free-space hearing performance of both normal-hearing listeners and listeners wearing hearing aids, hearing protection devices, or implantable hearing prosthetics, both for evaluating fitness for duty and for evaluating outcomes of clinical interventions. Tradition ...
