FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: The impact of this device could be enormous due to the increasing prevalence of PTSD in returning personnel. The safe, comfortable device needs no adjusting and can be issued as standard combat equipment and worn for years. It is increasingly recognized that PTSD may be caused by oxidative stress and changes in neuron function due to a constant stress response. Central Sensitization Syndomes includes PTSD and are more recently being recognized as a medical disorder caused by damage to the nervous system. This damage occurs silently, without evidence of the damage until they return home and realize their body is not functioning normally due to the sensitization created in the nervous system from an uncontrolled "fight or fight" response so common in active duty personnel.
