Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Laboratories (LM ATL) and the U.S. Army Institute of Surgical Research (USAISR) have been collaborating to improve methods of pre-hospital documentation. The collaboration is focused on creating a pre-hospital documentation grammar and spoken natural language understanding capability to support a hands-free and eyes-free interaction paradigm. This interaction paradigm will minimize the impact on the field medic during treatment of patients in stressful combat situations. The MediTRA-PH (Medical Treatment and Reporting Assistant: Pre-Hospital) prototype is a proof-of-concept of this approach. This paper presents the user-focused concept of operations for MediTRAPH, the design and development cycles undertaken and preliminary evaluation results in terms of recognition accuracy and user satisfaction.
