    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
