  1. Physics and Physiology Based Human Body Model of Blast Injury and Protection

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP13010

    The vast majority of injuries in recent military conflicts have been inflicted by improvised explosive devices (IEDs) causing brain, extremities and genital-urinary injuries. Advanced computational models of IED blast physics and human body injury biomech

  2. Optimal Rewarming Solutions for Cryopreserved Tissue Systems

    SBC: CELL PRESERVATION SERVICES INC            Topic: DHP15014

    CPSI Biotech personnel have developed solutions and devices for the cryopreservation and hypothermic storage of human cells and tissues. Devices being -tested include SmartFreeze and SmartThaw - instruments designed for the improved cryopreservation and thawing of stem cells to be used for stem cell therapy. This SBIR grant application proposes to identify pre-conditioning and post-conditioning ...

  3. A Neck Injury Assessment Tool

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP13009

    The overall objective of the proposed project is to develop new injury criteria, methodology, and a software tool to assess the risk of neck injury from loads sustained while wearing head supported mass (HSM). In this Phase I, we will develop an easy-to-use software which utilizes a detailed neck musculoskeletal model (scalable to the full range of male and female anthropometries) for the study of ...

  4. Shoulder injury risk and exertion assessment tool

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP13008

    Musculoskeletal injury among military personnel is an under-recognized problem where shoulder injuries are significant and result in inflammation and pain from overuse, joint derangement, sprain/stain/rupture, and dislocation. Health hazard assessment is essential to ensure that fielded equipment and occupational duties do not exceed human capabilities over short and long term exposures. Hazard ...

  5. Physics and Physiology Based Human Body Model of Blast Injury and Protection

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP13010

    Reports of military and civilian blast related injuries are reported daily by the media from all over the world. Limited understanding of the physics of blast-human body interaction and injury biomechanics hinder the development of protective measures. Experiments using animal models, cadavers and physical surrogates are costly, slow and mostly inadequate. We propose to develop anatomically consis ...

  6. Long-lasting Disposable Insecticidal / Repellent Fabric Barrier for Personal or Area Protection Against Biting Arthropods

    SBC: Widder Bros., Inc.            Topic: DHP13003

    The need exists for a low cost, light weight, reusable, highly effective spatial insect repellant that will repel, knock down and kill disease-carrying insects. We propose a Bayer CropScience chemical product, Bayothrin (Transfluthrin) for our studies. Bayothrin is a vapor-active compound that delivers efficacy against flying arthropods. Bayothrin exhibits strong characteristics to vaporize. Th ...

  7. Digital SQUID Array for Portable Low-Field MRI System for Combat Diagnostics

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: OSD11H18

    Recent research has shown that Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs) may be used to measure the very weak magnetic signals in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) at ultra-low magnetic fields in the milli-tesla range or below. However, the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is quite low, requiring very long averaging times to obtain reasonable spatial resolution. Under the Phase I project, we ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Chimeric Autologous/Allogeneic Constructs for Skin Regeneration

    SBC: Stratatech Corporation            Topic: OSD11H10

    Complex skin defects, including burns and trauma, represent a major medical problem affecting both military and civilian populations. In recent military engagements, burns account for approximately 5% of combat casualties. Furthermore, approximately 1.25 million Americans each year require medical attention for complex skin defects, with 50,000 people hospitalized for burns and 13,000 requiring sk ...

  10. Anatomic 3D Synthetic Tissue Printer for Medical Training

    SBC: SERAPH ROBOTICS, INC.            Topic: DHP12003

    Military medical personnel are not prepared to provide trauma care to severely injured soldiers in wartime due to inadequate and unrealistic battlefield training opportunities during peacetime. Training has historically been done on human cadavers and live animals, but cadavers are in limited supply, and animal rights groups and physicians are increasing pressure to end the practice of using live ...
