The focus of DACTL is on the development of technology solutions for acute medical conditions. We have a special interest in resource limited operations, specifically where mass, volume, power, re-usability, cost, and user requirements of technology have considerations beyond the clinical needs of the patient population.

Examples of resource-limited medical care include human spaceflight, rural medicine, wilderness medicine, or well-resourced academic medical center emergency rooms when dealing with the logistics of operating in the current era of medical care.

We are engineers and physicians collaborating on solving acute clinical problems through technology.
