  1. POC Blood Coagulopathy Monitor

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHA19A001

    Traumatic injuries account for 30% of all life years lost in the US and is the leading cause of death for people under 46 years of age. Uncontrolled bleeding or hemorrhage constitute 30-40% of trauma related deaths and are considered to be a major cause of preventable deaths. Viscoelastic tests such as thromboelastography and rotational thromboelastometry can monitor the dynamics of clot developme ...

  2. Multi-Sensor Data Collection Suite for Unobtrusive Human Performance Measurement

    SBC: PULSAR INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: N11AT033

    This project will achieve a field-deployable system to estimate circadian phase. Our approach involves the use of minimally-invasive sensors suitable for use in operational environments to continuously monitor physiological parameters associated with sleep timing, sleep quality, and circadian phase. Sensor measurements of circadian phase will be combined with a predictive model of circadian phase ...

  3. Extended Wear Deep-Fitting Noise Dosimeter

    SBC: Nittany Acoustics, LLC            Topic: DHA182002

    22 million workers go to work each day in damaging noise.Noise-induced hearing loss remains a problem in US industry and in the US military despite our best preventative efforts.A significant roadblock in preventing hearing loss is the lack of an accurate quantification of personal exposure.Potential risk is currently determined by measuring cumulative noise exposure using personal noise dosimeter ...

  4. Limb Cooling Device to Preserve Ischemic Extremity for Prolonged Field Care

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DHA182003

    To extend the usage of tourniquets during a war, Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) proposes to develop an innovative limb cooling device charged with two-phase working fluid, which is able to rapidly cool down the limb and keep the limb temperature within the range at 10-15C for 24 hours. The limb cooling device will be conformable and easy-to-apply on both upper and lower extremities. A m ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Ear Protection Validation System

    SBC: MICHAEL & ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: DHP12009

    A new Field-Microphone in Real Ear (F-MIRE) Field Attenuation Estimation System (FAES) is proposed. The insertion loss measurements will utilize a sub-miniature microphone mounted deep in the ear canal. An ultra-thin flat flexible cable (FFC) will connect the microphone to the PC-based analysis module. Human subject and test fixture verification tests have been performed demonstrating that the ...

  7. Multiple-user Wireless Hearing Protection Device Validation and Training System

    SBC: KCF TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: DHP12009

    KCF proposes to build a general wireless hearing protection device validation system with miniature, wireless in real ear microphones. The microphones will be battery-free to enable the reduction in size necessary to fit in the canal for testing with any hearing protection device. KCF has developed a low power wireless protocol that allows the microphones to run on small amounts of power that ca ...

  8. Reduction of Burn Progression and Scar Contracture with Cytokine-Neutralizing Gels

    SBC: Washburn Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: DHP12016

    Washburn Therapeutics Inc. is developing biologically active gels that control inflammation by selectively neutralizing pro-inflammatory cytokines based on a technology being licensed exclusively by the company from Carnegie Mellon University. Preliminary results demonstrated that conjugates of antibodies against tumor necrosis factor-alpha and hyaluronic acid were able to reduce secondary necrosi ...

  9. Evidence-Based Evaluation Process for Traumatic Brain Injuries and Co-morbid Psychological Disorders in Service Members

    SBC: JXT Applications, Inc.            Topic: OSD09H07

    Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is associated with emotional and physical health problems, of which PTSD and depression are important mediators. Our Phase I research created a conceptual model for a user-friendly, empirically-based screening/tracking tool available to first responders and medical practitioners to screen for mTBI or other disorders. We assessed the co-occurrence of these co-mo ...

  10. Aeromedical Transport Litter Immobilization and Stabilization (ATLIS) Platform

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: OSD09H13

    Cornerstone Research Group Inc. (CRG) proposes to redefine the immobilization and evacuation of SCI and TBI patients by developing a new patient stabilization system for aeromedical transport. This system will properly immobilize patients in a variety of transport configurations and reduce dynamic flight effects. CRG"s design will decrease co-morbidity associated with improper immobilization of SC ...
