  1. Scene Registration Augmented Reality as an Educational Tool to Identify Underlying Anatomy during Medical Simulation Training

    SBC: SHARP VISION SOFTWARE LLC            Topic: DHP163002

    A scene registration augmented reality proof-of-concept for medical education is proposed with the goal of making medical education, especially anatomical learning, intuitive, effective, accurate, and productive by leveraging the latest augmented reality technologies. To achieve the goal, following aspects will be investigated and developed: 1) recognize the fiducial markers on a mannequin or on a ...

  2. Delivery System for Cryopreserved Eukaryotic Cell Vaccines

    SBC: SANARIA INC.            Topic: DHP163003

    Sanaria has designed a cryovial for cryopreserving eukaryotic cells that can be used for distribution of cryopreserved eukaryotic cell-based vaccines and is suitable for direct vaccine administration to patients. The cryovials can be stored in liquid nitrogen vapor phase (LNVP) and are currently undergoing testing for suitability as the FDA-registered container for Sanarias Plasmodium falciparum ( ...

  3. Noninvasive Monitor of Vascular Volume Fluid Shifts

    SBC: INNOVITAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: DHA17007

    Accurate intravascular volume assessment improves the detection of hemorrhage and hypovolemia and facilitates decision-making relative to resuscitation, surgery and selection of higher level of medical care. Non-invasive assessment techniques are particularly important in the field. Current approaches and devices do not have broad utility and availability. The phonocardiogram, acquired and inte ...

  4. Modeling of Polytonic Dose Response Relationships

    SBC: LipoSeuticals Inc            Topic: DHP16C001

    Dose response relationships are fundamental to pharmacology and many other fields. Increasingly, scientists are encountering polytonic dose response relationships. These relationships are not well-characterized by linear and s-shaped models. Our team has extended the traditional 4 parameter logistic model by replacing the dose parameter with the quadratic function as an effective dose function. Th ...

  6. Non-invasive Telemetric Assessment of Gut Microbiota Activity in Situ

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: DHA17A004

    Physical, mental, and environmental stress, as well as diet and hydration have an impact on overall health, performance, and well-being of humans. These factors all affect the composition and metabolism of the microbiota in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The mix of microorganisms in the gut, and their metabolic transformation of food, can alter the overall health and physiology of the host. Me ...

  7. Medical Device to Assess the Viability of Tissue Prior to Skin Grafting

    SBC: Spectral Md, Inc.            Topic: DHA17A006

    The primary objective of this proposal is to design and demonstrate the SpectralMD DeepView imaging technology can allow surgeons to quickly and objectively assess the viability of tissue in a burn excision site prior to skin grafting. DeepView uses machine learning algorithms to analyze data acquired by multispectral imaging to generate quantitative prognostic images with a user-friendly output t ...

  8. High Affinity DNA Aptamer Reagents to Detect Shigella spp. and Non-Typhoidal Salmonella

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: DHP163005

    Operational Technologies Corp. (OpTech) proposes to screen its existing patented Salmonella enterica DNA aptamers (U.S. Application No. 13/136,820, issued) against a number of typhoidal and non-typhoidal Salmonella enterica serovars to determine the level of crossreactivity with the goal of detecting only non-typhoidal Salmonella. Aptamers have demonstrated the potential for greater affinity (assa ...

  9. Deep Learning based Automated Ultrasonic Vocalizations Scoring: DLAS

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: DHP16C003

    Ultrasonic vocalizations (USVs) provide an excellent behavioral measure that can be used to understand the effects of traumatic stressors on behavior and can be used to screen and identify therapeutic treatments. This provides a strong justification for the use of rodent USVs as a model for emotional processing in PTSD. Since there are no commercially available USV assessment software programs tha ...

  10. A Hand-Held Non-Contact Burn Triage System Utilizing Visible and Thermographic Imaging in 3D.


    Thermal injuries are common in all modern military conflicts and care given shortly after a severe burn is critical to its treatment and recovery. Triage for burn injuries is primarily separated into superficial burns which will heal naturally, and deep burns which require surgery. In far-forward environments non-expert combat medics must make burn triage decisions without the aid of lab equipment ...
