  1. Tourniquet Master Training (TMT) System for Junctional and Inguinal Hemorrhage Control Devices

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: DHP12001

    Junctional and inguinal bleeding from battlefield injuries is a significant and challenging problem. Inventors have developed new types of tourniquets, including the Abdominal Aortic Tourniquet (AAT) and the Combat Ready Clamp (CRoC) to address these abdominal and pelvic injuries. While these hemorrhage control technologies have been developed, validated, and approved for use, training systems tha ...

  2. Remediation-Oriented Cohort Builder for Healthcare Quality Assurance

    SBC: Commonwealth Informatics, Inc.            Topic: DHP12006

    The goal of this project to develop and demonstrate the value of a remediation-oriented cohort builder which enables the rapid translation of new population-based research results into patient-specific, actionable information for MHS clinicians, nurses and QA personnel at the point of care. Electronic delivery of patient-specific alerts, based on temporal analysis of the full medical record, has ...

  3. Novel Dendrimers for Antimicrobial Textile Finish

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: DHP12011

    The US Department of Defense requires antimicrobial textiles for integration with Soldier uniforms and in medical textiles to control bacterial growth. In the Phase I program, Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) developed a chemistry that will functionalize a broad range of fabrics with a novel antimicrobial dendrimer. The dendrimer provides a simple one-step textile process that chemically binds the ant ...

  4. Technologies to Train Myoelectric Prosthesis Users for Optimal Functional Outcomes

    SBC: Liberating Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DHP14011

    Successful outcomes of patients prescribed with myoelectric prostheses are dependent upon a good basis of training and competence. The critical time for developing good myoelectric control habits is in the pre-prosthetic phase, between wound healing and prosthesis delivery. Training can and should continue after prosthesis delivery as well. Current myo-training devices rely on technologies that a ...

  5. Upper Limb Assistive and Rehabilitation Orthotic Device

    SBC: Liberating Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DHP14010

    One of the most common of military injuries are musculoskeletal injuries (MSI), which inflicts thousands of individuals through combat and occupational risks. These injuries to the arms and hands require treatment, assistance, and rehabilitation for the afflicted individual. The proposed hand assist/rehab orthosis (HARO) is a low-profile, aesthetic, functional system that is able to provide actuat ...

  6. Assessment and Diagnosis of Vestibular Indicators of Soldiers? Operational Readiness (ADVISOR)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: DHP14007

    Soldiers displaying symptoms of acute or chronic mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) need accurate, timely, in-theater assessment of symptoms. Often this initial assessment and diagnosis must be conducted by first-level responders who attempt to assess vestibular symptoms and are often present directly following a concussive event; however, these symptoms are often missed, not adequately evaluated, ...

  7. Vector Arthropod Trap Using a CO2 Attractant Source

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: DHP13007

    The military desires an improved trap to capture and hold arthropods that may carry disease causing pathogens. A continuous source of carbon dioxide is needed over an 8 hour period to attract flea and tick species that are subsequently trapped and held alive for five days. Ideally, the arthropod trap will be smaller than a 2"diameter by 4.5"cylindrical shape to fit into burrows while also weighing ...

  8. Visual Evoked Potentials for TBI Diagnosis

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: DHP13011

    War-fighters in forward combat settings are frequently exposed to concussive events (e.g., explosions, accidents, and falls), but resources for diagnosing mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBIs) in these settings are limited. As such, soldiers with impaired cognitive states are often sent into combat situations, exposing them to unnecessary risk and increasing the likelihood of long-term health cons ...

  9. Portable Multi-Modal TBI (PMT) monitor

    SBC: Vivonics, Inc.            Topic: DHP13011

    Vivonics, Inc., together with clinical experts from the Mayo Clinic and the University of Utah proposes to develop a comprehensive diagnostic tool to detect and quantify mild brain injury (mTBI) in field applications using both visual evoked potentials (VEP) and non-invasive measurement of intracranial pressure (ICP). The combination of VEP and ICP measurement is likely to provide additional info ...

  10. A Software Tool to Assess Injury Risk Associated with Mechanical Exposures From Wearing Head Supported Mass

    SBC: BioSensics LLC            Topic: DHP13009

    Military helmet systems increase the likelihood of low and high-severity injuries, but the additional risk of neck injuries associated with Head Supported Devices (HSDs) has not been quantified. It is necessary to determine safe and tolerable limits of HSD mass, spatial distribution around helmet systems, and exposure schedule, as they are important design criteria for future military helmets. Bio ...
