Abstract
Cornerstone Research Group Inc. (CRG) proposes to redefine the immobilization and evacuation of SCI and TBI patients by developing a new patient stabilization system for aeromedical transport. This system will properly immobilize patients in a variety of transport configurations and reduce dynamic flight effects. CRG"s design will decrease co-morbidity associated with improper immobilization of SCI and TBI injury patients. CRG will improve the patient quality of care and caregiver efficiency by addressing challenges associated with patient restraint systems including cervical spinal immobilization and isolation from flight effects. Although transport systems exist, none fulfill the Army"s aeromedical stabilization requirements. CRG"s design will capture state-of-the-art spinal immobilization equipment features to create an adaptable isolation and patient stabilization system. CRG"s aeromedical transport litter immobilization and stabilization (ATLIS) platform concept integrates advanced/emerging technologies to ensure seamless deployment into current and future transport configurations. The ATLIS platform concept has two components: The spinal immobilization system (SIS) providing immobilization functionality and the patient stabilization platform (PSP) providing additional patient immobilization, pressure sore prevention, and damping of flight dynamics. These devices will serve wide ranges of treatment and monitoring needs while remaining compatible with current and future litter transport configurations.
