Charles River Analytics has secured Army Medical Research Acquisition Activity funds to advance a virtual reality technology designed to help military first responders examine brain injury cases on the battlefield.

The company said Monday it will equip the ADVISOR-Tethered Forward Deployable platform with a ruggedized screening kit comprised of a head-mounted display and a graphics and data processing unit.

ADVISOR tests the oculomotor, vestibular and reaction time characteristics of injury cases to support first responder decision-making.

The patent-pending system employs a ruggedized VR hardware set along with embedded software.

“With ADVISOR-TFD, we are developing intelligent, automated patient response data processing and decision support methods for ADVISOR's existing OVRT assessments,“ said Sean Tobyne, a Charles River Analytics scientist and principal investigator for the project.
