Year Award Started: 2016

Limb loss due to traumatic injury is common for Military personnel injured in the battlefield and in civilian casualties in civil disaster situations. During this project we will build upon our experience in long term organ support and the development of oxygentor, pumping and sensor technology to develop a rapidly deployable limb support technology for long term support and recovery of injured limbs. This project will focus on the development and integration of the sensor technologies required to monitor and control the support system and ultimately will have a positive impact on the long term recovery of affected patients.
