Abstract
The United States Special Operations Command's Special Boat Teams are routinely exposed to an environment prone to injury and the long-term effects of repetitive impact stress. The primary cause for injury and long-term degenerative musculoskeletal effects is the repetitive impacts incurred as the MK V and NSW RIB vessels impact the ocean's surface. The goal of SOCOM02-007 Phase II research is to develop engineering prototypes for a training system that will aide a crewmember in learning postures that optimally absorb the impacts in the MK V and RIB environments and ultimately reduce the frequency of injury occurrence. Self-contained human motion recording and real-time analysis instruments capable of displaying accurate position and correlated impact information are not commercially available, therefore; Phase II development efforts are targeted at providing sensor, processing and algorithm technology for a complete remote human motion analysis and biofeedback system that will fit the needs of the Special Boat Team environments. Qualvox Corporation's compact sensor module design, novel processing architecture and algorithms, and the latest high performance processors enable this level of system sophistication to be implemented in a human worn device.
