MDM 18 – ADS / Phokus Research Group

Tuesday, September 25th, 2018

All innovating, Phokus Research Group has taken the USMC Individual First Aid Kit and broken it down into three modules to make it more effective.

Module One includes those items needed for trauma by every Marine and is in a format to be worn inside the Marine Plate Carrier.

Module Two includes items which should be carried by a Squad but not necessarily by every Marine.

The final Module contains a boo-boo kit, containing items regularly used like band-aids and over-the-counter meds, which Marines carry in their IFAK but would have to break open and dig through in order to use them.

They can do something similar with any kit.

Look for Phokus Research Group in the ADS, Inc booth.

Warrior West 18 – Titan Retention

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

I found Titan Retention in the Phokus Research Group booth. The concept (and small business) were created by a Team Guy who wanted a better mousetrap. In this case, his mousetrap was a weapon retention device.

Titan Retention uses a ratchet system to retain weapons and equipment with 500 lbs of force. It’s also PALS compatible and your gear is easy to access thanks to the Austrialpin Cobra buckle. It sounds heavy, but it weighs just 9 oz.

Offered in multiple colors, visit www.titanretention.com for more info.

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.

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.
