Budapest hospital

On May 6th 2022 LOK Corporation visited the NATO Centre of Excellence for Military Medicine in Budapest, Hungary to introduce the latest lifesaving solutions in the framework of Emergency Management of Battlefield Injuries Course. The four innovative medical devices for combat casualty care were presented during the session, followed by the discussion of the novel neurology care device’s potential military application .

Thornhill Medical
MOVES® SLC™ from Thornhill Medical is portable fully integrated life support system that is built to military standards. In March 2022 MOVES® SLC™ was awarded U.S. Army Airworthiness Release which recognizes the MOVES® SLC™ for use by the military in the extreme environments in which it is often deployed, supporting the goal of improved patient survivability during evacuation.
The EpiShuttle® from Epiguard is a single-patient isolation and transport system, designed to provide maximum patient safety and comfort while allowing critical care and treatment to be performed. The EpiShuttle® can protect the environment from an infected patient, or protect a vulnerable patient from a contaminated environment.

Military departments all over the world chose the EpiShuttle® to prepare for the outbreaks of highly infectious diseases like Ebola, SARS and MERS. Also, to have solution in place for possible chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear events which require quick isolation of contaminated individuals.
Compression Works
Abdominal Aortic and Junctional Tourniquet-Stabilized from Compression Works is a versatile tourniquet with five distinct uses that can stop the bleed in non-compressible hemorrhage casualties. AAJT-S has documented lives saved for different application sites and has more than 70 peer-reviewed publications demonstrating its safety and effectiveness.

During the AAJT-S demonstration the audience noted its rapid application and the ease of use.
Sense Neuro Diagnostics
NeuroHawk™ from Sense Neuro Diagnostics is a solution for rapid traumatic brain injury diagnosis and monitoring in the deployed settings. TBI is a signature wound of recent wars, with roughly 420,000 documented incidents of service members sustaining at least one TBI in the last two decades.

Sense Neuro Diagnostics were selected by the U.S. Army Medical Research and Development Command Combat Casualty Care Research Program to receive $2.43 million from the U.S. Department of Defense for further development of the NeuroHawk™ solution.
Disposable EEG Headset Presentation
The NeuroCap™ and NeuroEEG™ from Brain Scientific are promising medical devices that enable remote EEG recording. The disposable pre-gelled NeuroCap™ headset can be applied by medical professionals not specialised in neurology and portable wireless NeuroEEG™ amplifier can be used to record the EEG signals in a variety of settings.

Currently, the EEG systems are not readily available in the deployed environment. Brain Scientific solutions expand accessibility and proximity of neurological care.
LOK Corporation would like to thank NATO for the cooperation and for providing us a solid platform to discuss the best practices and advanced technologies for casualty care with the audience of multinational military medicine professionals.
