COMETS - Autonomous Casualty Simulation
COMETS is designed from its initial concept to the specifications of the Army Medical
Department Center and School (AMEDD C&S). It will be a tetherless, battery operated,
durable, fully-armored 190-pound full-body simulator providing training in battlefield
tactical care, including airway management, hemorrhage control, chest trauma, CBRNE training,
shock resuscitation, field management of multiple simultaneous casualties, and multi-system injury.
EVE - Endovascular Simulator
Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Each year, more than 750,000
strokes result in over 150,000 deaths. Approximately 80% of strokes are ischemic,
where decreased intracerebral flow results from intravascular thrombosis or embolism.
RIPS - Real-time Incident Preparedness
The SimGroup at the Center for the Integration of Medicine and Innovative Technology
(CIMIT) was contracted by the National Bioterrorism Civilian Medical Response Center
(CiMeRC) and the Center of Excellence for Remote and Medically Under-Served Areas (CERMUSA)
to assist in bringing cutting-edge simulation technologies to the existing CiMeRC Biodefense
Education Forum (Forum).
CEDRS - Comprehensive Emergency and Disaster Response Simulation
Leveraging the functionality of the RIPS Engine, CEDRS combines the high-level command and control simulation of RIPS with the low-level performance data gathered by intelligent mannequins such as COMETS. By combining the two user groups, a comprehensive, human-in-the-loop training environment is created.
SOFA - Simulation Architecture
SOFA is an Open Source framework primarily targeted at real-time simulation,
with an emphasis on medical simulation. It is mostly intended for the research
community to help develop newer algorithms, but can also be used as an.
TEMPEST - Soft Tissue Modeling
To support our efforts in physics-based surgical simulation, we require data on the mechanical properties of soft tissues,
specifically the stress-strain/strain rate relationships over ranges relevant to the
types of deformations that would be generated during typical surgical interventions.
VIRGIL - Chest Trauma Simulator
VIRGIL™ was developed by a team of researchers and scientists from The Simulation
Group at CIMIT (Center for Integration of Medicine & Innovative Technology). CIMIT’s
mission is to apply advanced technology to medicine in effective ways. As part of this
effort, The Simulation Group works closely with the US Army Medical Research & Materiel
Command and the Special Forces Medical Command.
CELTS - Laparoscopic Skills Trainer
Metrics are widely employed in virtual environments and provide a yardstick for performance measurement.
The current method of defining metrics for medical simulation remains more an art than a science.
SITU - Smallpox Inoculation Training Unit
Thirty years has passed since smallpox inoculations were stopped in the US. When
President Bush announced the return of smallpox vaccinations, there was a shortage of
experienced smallpox inoculators since the most of the medical professionals who
performed the last vaccinations had retired or left medicine.
ICTS - Interventional Cardiology
Team members, Ryan Bardsley, Stephane Cotin, and Steve Dawson worked together on an
Interventional Cardiology Training System developed by the Medical Application Group
at Mitsubishi Electric in collaboration with the Center for Innovative Minimally Invasive Therapy (CIMIT).
MSTI Medical Simulation Training Initiative
Medical Simulation Training Initiative (MSTI) is a visionary military program to develop a multi- functional simulation platform based on a personal computer, with 3-D imaging of anatomic compartments or body structures.
VoCCI: Vocal fold biomechanics testing, and laryngoscopic instrumentation development
ABEL - Catheter/guidewire tracking system
CHB Replacement controller for legacy pediatric mannequin
