Delivering Innovative Results
ECS developed the Mobile Medic Application to integrate existing Combat Casualty Care capabilities and technologies into the Army’s OneTESS environment. The Mobile Medic application uses OneTESS casualty information and wound types to initiate simulated casualty scenarios on a mobile computing device. Military medical personnel must treat these virtual casualties and the application will communicate updated patient status and all treatment decisions back into the OneTESS environment.
A key component of the application is the blending of treatment elements available within the simulated scenario with the treatment elements that are available within a live training exercise. This enables different combinations of live and virtual medical treatment. For example, a medical treatment may be applied to the “live casualty” (applying a tourniquet or using a simulated auto-injector on a victim) or may simply be applied within each scenario on the mobile device (reading vitals and symptoms, performing a tracheotomy).
Key Takeaway: The Mobile Medic application is bridging the gap between live and virtual environments by presenting realistic casualty information to medical personnel and allowing them to perform medical treatments and interventions as needed on virtual patients.
