Exercise and health is vitally important to the performance of our military personnel. Optimal health ensures out-the-door readiness in deployment while maximizing longevity during missions. Historically, the primary way to measure health and performance has been utilizing a fitness test comprised of generalized exercises requiring significant human resources to deliver and minimal data to validate. IncludeHealth™ provides a medically-driven, data-fueled and cloud-based platform to drive next generation health & performance. Utilized in orthopedics, neuroscience, pediatric care, senior care, government, and general wellness - our digital suite aggregates data from our equipment, digitizes existing equipment, and integrates third party data sets into a single consolidated platform. This unique combination provides breakthrough digital capabilities such as streamlined programming, location & hardware agnostic delivery, autonomous guidance, objective & outcomes-based data collection, and automated documentation. This culminates in an internationally awarded technology built to optimize and transform health & performance. To learn more, visit Our mission is provide a breakthrough digital suite delivering next generation, mission-specific health & performance protocols that are objectively validated through evidence based data and autonomously delivered without human proxy to improve warfighter health & performance while lowering operational & financial risk. ---------- Note - This submission is a pre-approved 2021 TACFI award from AFWERX in collaboration with 2ASOS and 711HPW extending the work from our 191-005 Phase II Contract FA86491999004. We were advised to re-submit our TACFI proposal under a D2P2 for final processing and approval through DSIP. ____________ Musculoskeletal injury (MSI) is the number one threat to an airman's tactical readiness and lethality. Each year, MSI affects 800,000 military service members leading to 2.2 million medical visits, 25 million lost duty days, and approximately $5 billion in healthcare costs. MSI is the primary reason for medical discharge from the military, accounting for 34% of the Air Force's medical discharges. MSI can cause airmen to be pulled from assignments and leads to lapses in training qualifications. Furthermore, MSI decreases mission readiness by reducing the number of airmen able to deploy at any given time. IncludeHealth’s musculoskeletal operating system (MSK-OS™) has been developed to autonomously deliver mission-specific health & performance protocols with objective data collection and real-time corrective feedback on any device with a front-facing camera and web browser. A preliminary version of this technology was first tested by the 711 HPW in DEC 2020 as the final technology deliverable in our Phase II initiative. Through this TACFI effort, we will focus on expanding this technology across four key sectors: Metric-Based Training: Expanding the system to program and measure performance-based metrics (power, velocity, work, etc) Movement Expansion: Growing the movement library for specific USAF needs Advanced Programming: Develop extended plans to auto-advance the warfighter’s training protocols based on performance outcomes Remote Expansion: Deliver these expanded capabilities both onsite and remote through warfighters' own devices (including phones, tablets and computers)
