Advising professor: Shea Tillman
Team: Auburn University Professors:
Dr. David Crumbley (Gun Wound Expert, Military Vet.)
Dr. David Worley (inventor of drug N-Halamine)
This project was run in conjunction with Dr. Crumbley and Dr. Worley's Staph healing solution, N-Halamine. We applied his chemical solution to the pellets of the X-Stat. This steralized the wound on impact.
As a team we took on the challenge of redesigning the X-Stat for EMT use since it is only given to military personel. This device saves lives by clogging wounds after a soldier has been shot in the battlefield.
After meeting regulary with Dr. Crumbley we came to the conclusion that these are the four main instances you face when dealing with a gunshot wound.
With these main points in mind, we designed a more ergonmical solution that made it easier to use for EMT use, or Civilians as your window of time to save a life is typically under 5 minutes. This product was designed to be used in under 15 seconds.
