Task Integrated Medical Model - Neck Injury Module (Completed)
Last Published:  07/30/21 01:05:34 PM (Central)
Short Title: IMM-Neck Injury
Responsible HRP Element: Exploration Medical Capability
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
Directed
Aims:
  1. Identify the components of impact biomechanics associated with the neck, i.e., injury mechanisms, mechanical response, and tolerance or risk to impact
  2. Develop a biomechanical model of the neck with sufficient fidelity by validating the model response against published data
  3. Determine the likelihood of neck injury based on NASA spaceflight operational constraints
  4. Determine the likelihood of injury severity based on neck injury likelihood and impact parameters
  5. Provide a probabilistic simulation that allows the Exploration Medical Capability Element of the Human Research Program to develop medical kits appropriate to the level of risk and consequence of neck injury
  6. Provide a probabilistic simulation that allows the Exploration Medical Capability Element of the Human Research Program the ability to quantitatively evaluate the effect of different operational scenarios on the ability of a given medical kit to adequately treat an ill or injured crew member
