Wearable Wounds

This patent for a "wearable wound simulant" includes a skin replica that has bendable layers, arranged to "facilitate the visual, tactile, and functional aspects of a battlefield wound so as to allow for the diagnosis of injuries," according to the filing.

The wearable wound could simulate "various bleed conditions, including, but not limited to, gushing, spurting and seeping." The skin replica could also be self-sealing, which allows for the insertion of a needle.

The inventors are David Parry of Yardley, Pennsylvania; Daniel Parry of Dublin, Pennsylvania; Daniel Pipito of Feasterville, Pennsylvania; Brian Letizia of Brick, New Jersey; Morris Ravich of Beckley, West Virginia; and Daniel Smith of Hatboro, Pennsylvania. The patent assignee is Techline Technologies Inc., in Willow Grove, Pennsylvania.
