A noninvasive physiological monitoring device capable of monitoring from multiple sites to determine surface and deep tissue oxygenation in real time will benefit virtually all areas of the medical community. This tool will be invaluable for the entire medical arena, offering a cost effective method of vastly improving patient care. The specific use solicited it to penetrate through the skull and detect/image blood beneath the skull surface and in the cortical layer of the brain. The goal is to make a low cost portable device that can diagnose traumatic brain injuries in operational environments (acute subdural hematoma, SDH). This will be done by applying NIRS or Near Infrared Reflective Spectroscopy technology to this problem leading in Phase I to a feasible system concept and in Phase II to a proof of concept prototype instrument. Cybernet is qualified under FDA Good Manufacturing Practices to design and manufacture medical instruments and has several low cost medical products in production at the present time.
