  1. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Remote Exercises for Learning Anger and Excitation Management (RELAX)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD11H13

    Post-deployment psychological health issues such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance abuse, and comorbid stress and anger management disorders are experienced by substantial numbers of service members. Fortunately, a number of proven, evidence-based treatments have been developed to help these communities with these issues. Although treatment options are offered at many Veterans Aff ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Extensible Field and Evacuation Care Training in a Virtual Environment (EFECTIVE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: DHA173001

    The DoD is preparing for future Contested Degraded Operations (CDO) environments where it will not be possible to sustain the current levels of medical care across the chain of care. Enemy activity and lack of resources may limit the availability of front line medical personnel, safe spaces to administer care, medical supplies, and time, denying physical access to evacuate patients and deliver med ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Reusable Modules for Patient Simulators

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: DHA172001

    Medical combat training relies heavily on medical simulation, particularly for practicing highly invasive, life-saving medical procedures. However, the major drawbacks to medical simulators include high costs of replacement parts, limited repeated use, and lack of feedback. In Phase I, Triton Systems and its team demonstrated sensor technologies for real-time feedback and reusable materials for re ...

  9. Monitoring Metabolic Energy Expenditure Via the Prosthetics of Lower Extremity Amputees

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: OSD11H07

    Limb loss affects approximately 1.9 million people in the United States. It is well established that lower-limb amputees show greater metabolic demands during gait and more limited mobility compared to non-disabled individuals. Currently, there is no lower-extremity prosthesis available that can monitor the metabolic costs of the amputee. The proposed solution, code-named TEQUILA (Total Energy exp ...

  10. High-resolution optical imaging and spectroscopy instrument for real-time characterization of soft tissue constructs

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: OSD11H08

    Traumatic injuries, especially in the combat setting, are often associated with significant tissue loss and morbidity. Immediate reconstruction is often needed to prevent further morbidity and degradation of soldier health status. Novel regenerative medicine approaches, including grafting of engineered tissue have the potential to address this problem. However, the absence of adequate tools for te ...
