Principal Investigator


For this SBIR project, Strategic Operations, Inc, and our subcontractor, VCOM-3D, Inc, propose to develop a Blended Reality Medical Training System (BRMTS) for humeral head intraosseus (IO) infusion. A Hyper-Realistic hands-on training manikin and Virtual Instruction System (VIS) will be integrated to provide both cognitive and pyschomotor skills training that are highley effective and portable. The hands-on trainer will feature a user repairable upper torso and posable arms, with low-cost, replaceable IO insfusion sites and sensors. The VIS will further reduce training costs by allowing the student to build skills in a virtual environment prior to practicing on the manikin. Following initial hands-on practice and remediation, the student will be able to develop critical decision making skills in an immersive training scenario. Phase I research and development will result in an operational prototype and a development plan for Phase II. A fully developed BRMTS will be delivered in Phase III.
