IAI Awarded DHA Contract to Develop a Durable Ruggedized System of IMUs to Assess Gait and Balance in Field Hospitals

ROCKVILLE, Md. — Oct. 28, 2019 — Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), a technology innovation company, announced today that it has been awarded a contract by the Defense Health Agency (DHA) to develop a set of wearable inertial measurement units (IMU) and analytics models to detect subtle balance deficits post-concussion.

In this contract, IAI will develop a ruggedized IMU system to assess acute movement dysfunction in a field hospital. Data collected from a set of IMUs worn by the patient will be analyzed to identify a possible injury. Results will provide clinicians with objective, readily interpretable information about a patient’s performance.

IAI’s digital healthcare team creates mobile apps and sensors to gather and analyze data from patients outside of the clinical setting. IAI’s technologies in medical informatics are used by researchers and practitioners to improve patient outcomes by monitoring patient performance, improving adherence, and providing timely interventions throughout a patient’s healthcare regimen.

“IAI is proud to have been selected by DHA to explore new approaches for the detection and evaluation of movement dysfunction,” said Vikram Manikonda, President and CEO of IAI.
