Research Institution

Orthopedic injuries have comprised a majority of combat injuries in most recent conflicts. These orthopedic injuries are significantly different than those experienced in the civilian sector, making it difficult for military orthopedic surgeons to develop and sustain battlefield-relevant surgical skills. ArchieMD, Inc. proposes to develop a 3-D Multimedia Training System for Treatment Battlefield Orthopedic Injuries. This training system integrate visual 3-D computer models, video recording of the actual treatments, and an interactive virtual patient to develop a comprehensive, effective training tool for Army, Air Force, and Navy medical personnel. We believe this will be highly effective given the nature of both the visual component and the “hands on” component of medical education. The resultant system will include the input of subject-matter experts and be rigorously evaluated to determine its didactic value throughout the development process.
