"Smart” Tools & Robotics – Today’s Critical Battlefield Aid to Heal Wounded Service Members
Join the IVMF for our next VetNet in partnership with the Syracuse University BioInspired team Dr. Mary Beth Monroe and Dr. Victor Duenas, and learn how their research is impacting the military-connected community!

Uncontrolled hemorrhage is the leading cause of potentially preventable death on the battlefield. Once the patient is stabilized, they face long-term sensory or motor deficits that must be addressed with rehabilitation. Current research at Syracuse University addresses this spectrum of traumatic wound healing. Dr. Mary Beth Monroe focuses on using ‘smart’ materials to rapidly stop bleeding so that patients can safely reach the hospital. Dr. Victor Duenas develops control systems for lower limb rehabilitation robotics to improve range of motion and neuromuscular function during long-term healing. These combined research efforts improve acute and chronic healing outcomes for wounded service members.
