2018 FirstSpear Range Day – Phokus Research Group Wound Cube

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

We recently introduced you to the Wound Cube, a low-cost wound care training device from Phokus Research Group.


Made from silicone, the wound cube features for different wound simulations. PRG decided to introduce a blue version to denote training device. What do you think?


Phokus Research Group – Wound Cube

Tuesday, January 16th, 2018


Phokus Research Group’s Wound Cube is a simple, inexpensive, medical training device which was created to teach students how to control bleeding. In particular, they can pack wounds with gauze. It’s a 4″x4″x4″ cube made from semi-transparent non-toxic silicone which integrates a large laceration as well as multiple wound channels.


One of the Wound channels can also be used as a slot for a flashlight. This feature allows the instructor to illuminate the wound from the inside so that the student’s actions can be more easily evaluated through the semi-transparent material. At 2.5 lbs, material replicates tissue density. Although it’s a dry training device, Wound Cube can also be used with blood stimulant.


During Warrior East, PRG’s Rob Hanna showed me the Wound Cube and asked me what I thought. I envisioned it being used by training centers as well as at the unit level, with one per team or platoon, depending on the type of organization. Due to its low cost, Wound Cube could also be used by private trainees who can’t necessarily afford a full prosthetic training aid. In fact, Hanna told me they’ll offer a special price for private trainers.


Phokus Research Group Launches Updated Website And Education Division

Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

At Warrior East I had a chance to catch up with Phokus Research Group. They’ve made some improvements we can all appreciate.

First off, they recently released an updated version of their website with special attention ti their most popular products.

Additionally, Phokus launched a New Education Division. When you think about it, it’s a natural progression. They’ve adapted to the changing landscape of society by introducing medical products into new markets for several years now. For instance, kits specifically for institutional use during active shooter and other mass casualty scenarios. In an emergency, such life saving gear would be used by amateurs. Naturally, they are going to require instruction on how to employ the gear. Consequently, Phokus has partnered with best-in-class training companies to ensure even the most inexperienced truly understand how to succeed in a life threatening situation. They’ve started by focusing on three areas that they already specialize in: Bleeding Control, Active Shooter, Emergency Preparedness. I wouldn’t be surprised to see this expand.


Phokus Research Group – Under Armor Overview Training Video

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

It’s not enough to have a first aid or trauma kit, you have to be familiar with its contents and know how to use it. All too often, units and agencies have to forethought to buy and issue kits, but not everyone in the rank and file gets in on the new equipment training during initial issue. Phokus Research Group created this “Under Armor Overview Video” to help alleviate the situation.

On set – shooting a training video for Phokus Research Group’s new Split Kit.

MDM – Name This “Accessible Under Armor Trauma Kit” Contest from Phokus Research Group

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

Phokus Research Group developed this Dual Zipper Under Armor Deployment version of the Sons Traima Kit for those units who need to be able to access the components of their medical items. In addition to the ability to maintain the kits when items expire, the dual zipper also allows units to update their components with new items. It still fits in the late pocket of the Armor Vest so they’ve also introduced a split seam so the items stay in place.

It’s a great product, but the name is a mouthful and more of a nomenclature than a cool name. I suggested Phokus allow the SSD readers to name it. So here’s your shot to be a marketing genius. Phokus will reward the best name, judged by them, two fully loaded versions of this kit as well as two Shield kits.

To enter, follow these rules:
1. In the comments section of THIS, and only THIS, article on SSD, share your proposed name. Only entries here are eligible to win. Of more than ine person submits a name, the first use gets credit for it.

2. Comments are open from now until 1600 Zulu on 30 September 2016 (that’s this Friday at High Noon Eastern Daylight Time).

3. Use any alias you want to post but be sure to use a valid email address since that’s how we’ll contact the winner.

4. Phokus Research Group will select the name from the comments we receive.

5. One entry per email address. We will delete entries that violate this policy.

6. Must be 18 to enter. Void where prohibited.

By the way, Phokus products are available for unit and agency purchase from ADS Inc.
