Military Health System Research Symposium

Sense Neuro Diagnostics Receives Very Positive Feedback After Presentation at U.S. Department of Defense’s Military Health System Research Symposium

The Sense Neuro Diagnostics team is pursuing new funding opportunities after a strong presentation at the Department of Defense’s foremost scientific meeting – the Military Health System Research Symposium (MHSRS) in Kissimmee, FL.

The MHSRS is the premier military or civilian meeting that focuses specifically on the unique medical needs of service men and women on the battlefield. More than 4,000 people attended the MHSRS to present and review scientific knowledge gained from military-unique research and development. Sense’s Vice President of Product Development Joe Korfhagen was selected to deliver a podium presentation on the development of the MedTech startup’s hemorrhage detection and hemorrhage expansion monitoring algorithms.

Korfhagen was also joined by CEO Geoff Klass for an opportunity to showcase all three of Sense’s products under development at Medical Technology Enterprise Consortium (MTEC) booth at the symposium. MTEC is a public-private partnership that is managed by the Department of Defense to develop innovative medical technologies that improve the health and safety of military personnel, veterans, and civilians. MTEC is a current partner of Sense Neuro Diagnostics.

Military personnel at the symposium offered overwhelmingly positive feedback after presentations of Sense’s technology and its use case in a far-forward environment. Sense executives say they are hopeful to receive further funding through the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP), which fills research gaps by funding high-impact, high-risk, and high-gain projects that other agencies may not fund. This new funding would be supported through the Traumatic Brain Injury and Psychological Health Research Program (TBIPHRP), a peer-reviewed granting mechanism, and would allow Sense to test its NeuroHawk device in a clinical setting.
