For this SBIR project, Strategic Operations, Inc, and subcontractor, Vcom3D, Inc, propose to develop a Blended Reality Medical Training System (BRMTS) for humeral head intraosseous (IO) infusion. A Hyper-Realistic hands-on IO trainer and Virtual Instruction System (VIS) will be integrated to provide both cognitive and psychomotor skills training that are highly effective and portable. The hands-on trainer will feature a user repairable upper torso and posable arms, with low-cost, replaceable IO infusion sites and sensors. The VIS will further reduce training costs by allowing the student to build skills in a virtual environment and will support practice and remediation in coordination with the IO trainer. Based on the designs demonstrated as part of Phase I, a fully operational IO trainer and VIS will be developed and evaluated as part of the Phase II project.
