The Military Health System is an interconnected network of service members whose mission is to support the lives and families of those who support our country. Everyday in the MHS advancements are made in the lab, in the field, and here at home. These are just a few articles highlighting those accomplishments that don't always make it to the front page of local papers.

Mobile Apps for Healthy Eating

Photo
1/18/2017
Mobile apps and programs are becoming simpler and more intuitive to help monitor your healthy eating. Some programs are interactive as well. They also provide nutrition information for more than 45,000 food items, including brand name and restaurant foods. Entering foods and calculating their calories takes only a fraction of the time when compared to a “paper” food diary. (MHS graphic)

Breaching Exercise

Marines shield themselves from a detonated explosive charge during a breaching exercise. Modern body armor better protects warfighters against shrapnel from explosive blasts. However, they still face the resulting blast pressure and shock wave that could cause traumatic brain injury. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Sgt. Emmanuel Ramos)

Osseointegration

The initial surgery for osseointegration attaches a fixture or implant onto or within the bone, and the bone takes about three months to grow into the implant. The second surgery prepares the soft tissue for an attachment, called an abutment, which protrudes through the skin. Similar to the way a dental implant is secured to the jaw bone, a prosthetic limb is attached directly to the abutment. (Courtesy graphic)

Osseointegration, a process which attaches a prosthetic limb directly to the skeleton, can be an alternative option to traditional socket-based prosthetics for qualified patients. It is currently undergoing clinical trials at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Joshua D. Sheppard)

The introduction of robotic assisted tubal re-anastomosis, commonly known as tubal ligation reversal, provides eligible beneficiaries with a third option for the procedure, an option studies show produces higher success rates for post-operation pregnancy.

Soldiers of the Army Reserve Medical Command participate in the 2-mile run as part of the Army Physical Fitness Test. With fewer hours of sunlight in the winter months, you might be walking or running when it’s dark out — even at dusk and dawn. Wear reflective gear or a headlamp to stay visible.

Navy Corpsman, Marine Training

Corpsmen carry rifles and participate in training just as Marines do. When corpsmen attach to Marine units in the field, they get more specific experience and training with line companies and infantry assets. They are almost indistinguishable from Marines when they are participating in Marine operations. It is this ability to engage in training and operations in less-than-ideal conditions which fosters the strong relationship between Marines and corpsmen.
