Firefighter Firefighter Presentation Transcript

  • The Value Proposition
  • Wireless RF Technology
    • One of the central components within the HOT system is
    • the wireless RF (Radio Frequency) tag that sends data to a Incident Commander or Medical Divison Officer’s PDA.
    • Intelligent Long Range (ILR) active RFID tag
    • 300 yard read/write radius
    • Temperature logging
    • 1,000-tag simultaneous identification
    • Battery life – one year plus
    • Impact resistant & Industrial Housing
    • Water proof

  • Sensor Technology
    • Sensor hardware is also a primary component and directly measures forehead temperature and estimates core temperature.
    • Custom Design
    • Measures temp from temporal artery
    • Captures multiple readings
    • Impact Resistant
    • Non-Invasive, “Pinpoint” size
    • Only weighs 14 grams

  • PDA Hardware & Software Solution
    • The handheld PDA is the Incident Commander’s tool which supports their ability to monitor the temperature trends of every firefighter. It’s equipped with proprietary software specifically for heat monitoring.
    • Customizable database
    • Up to 1,000 firefighter accessible
    • Built-in audible alert
    • Historical data
  • The Components
    • Heat Sensing
    • The highly-sensitive sensor measures forehead skin temperature from
    • the temporal artery. Preliminary data indicates that there is a correlation between forehead temperature and core body temperature as measured with our device. Kennesaw State University is in the process of further validating this data.
    • Remote reporting
    • The system is equipped with a custom RF tag or assembly that
    • gathers heat data and transmits it to a handheld PDA. The data can be
    • downloaded to a user’s computer and reports are generated that detail dates, times, and temperature readings for each individual firefighter.
  • The Components (cont.)
    • Software Application
    • Proprietary software shows firefighter information such as
    • temperature, employee number, unit number, emergency contact
    • information, and any known medical conditions.
    • Customized Database
    • Allows each team to create additional fields of data
    • regarding the firefighter (ex. weight, height, physical condition,
    • etc.).
  • The Software Application
    • Screens 1
    • Standby Mode – System remains in standby mode until
    • user acknowledges system to conduct a system check.
  • The Software Application
    • Screen 2
    • Status Mode – User can view multiple firefighters and
    • monitor their ongoing body temperatures in real-time.
  • The Software Application
    • Screen 3
    • Firefighter Personal Mode – User can access player data such as employee number, name, last temperature, tag number, and known medical conditions.
  • The Software Application
    • Screens 4
    • Contact Modes – User can access firefighter’s personal contacts to engage with command and family in case of an emergency.
  • The Software Application
    • Screen 5
    • Help Mode – Hothead Sports Assist ™ provides a quick
    • reference guide to Incident Commanders and Medical Divison officers when facing the challenge of an overheated firefighter.
    • User Guide
    • Navigation
    • Customizing Database
    • QuikLinks to Symptoms
    • QuikLinks to Treatments
  • Beneficiary and End User
    • The beneficiary and end user of the HOT System product are the firefighters, firefighter’s families, and incident commanders.
    Firefighters: Feel safer that someone is personally monitoring their body’s temperature Firefighter’s Families: The HOT System eases concerns that families have about heat-related illness on loved ones Incident Commanders: Will know the heat risk level of their firefighters before it reaches above-normal levels
