The Hot System

  1. 2. The Value Proposition
  2. 3. Wireless RF Technology <ul><li>One of the central components within the HOT system is </li></ul><ul><li>the wireless RF (Radio Frequency) tag that sends data to a Incident Commander or Medical Divison Officer’s PDA. </li></ul><ul><li>Intelligent Long Range (ILR) active RFID tag </li></ul><ul><li>400 yard read/write radius </li></ul><ul><li>Temperature logging </li></ul><ul><li>1,000-tag simultaneous identification </li></ul><ul><li>Battery life – two year plus </li></ul><ul><li>Impact resistant & Industrial Housing </li></ul><ul><li>Water proof </li></ul><ul><li>Stand by mode – no need to turn on/off </li></ul>
  3. 4. Sensor Technology Sensor hardware is also a primary component and directly measures forehead temperature and estimates core temperature. <ul><li>Custom Design </li></ul><ul><li>Measures temp from temporal artery </li></ul><ul><li>Captures multiple readings </li></ul><ul><li>Impact Resistant </li></ul><ul><li>Non-Invasive, “Pinpoint” size </li></ul><ul><li>Only weighs 14 grams </li></ul>
  4. 5. PDA Hardware & Software Solution <ul><li>TThe 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. </li></ul><ul><li>C-Customizable database </li></ul><ul><li>U-Up to 1,000 firefighters accessible </li></ul><ul><li>B-Built-in audible alert </li></ul><ul><li>H-Historical data </li></ul>
  5. 6. 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.
  6. 7. The Components (cont.) Software Application Proprietary software shows firefighter information such as temperature, rank, employee number, unit number, emergency contact information, and any known medical conditions. Customized Database Allows each department to create additional fields of data regarding the firefighter (ex. weight, height, physical condition, etc.).
  7. 8. Helmet Placement of Sensor <ul><li>Can retrofit any helmet design </li></ul><ul><li>Sensor is placed on forehead padding for optimal reading </li></ul><ul><li>Does not interfere with vision or donning of helmet </li></ul>
  8. 9. Mask Placement of Sensor <ul><li>Sensor pad can be trimmed to pinpoint size of thermistor and does not interfere with vision or air seal. </li></ul><ul><li>Can retro fit any make of SCBA mask. </li></ul><ul><li>Tag is positioned below mouth cup which does not interfere with vision or air seal. </li></ul>
  9. 10. The Software Application Screens 1 Standby Mode – System remains in standby mode until user acknowledges system to conduct a system check.
  10. 11. The Software Application Screen 2 Status Mode – User can view multiple firefighters and monitor their ongoing body temperatures in real-time.
  11. 12. The Software Application Screen 3 Firefighter Personal Mode – User can access firefighter data such as rank, name, last temperature, tag number, and notes (Paramedic, Hazmat, SAR, etc).
  12. 13. The Software Application Screens 4 Medical and Contact Modes – User can access firefighter’s personal medical history and contacts to engage with command and family in case of an emergency.
  13. 14. Personal Information <ul><li>Does NOT violate HIPPA </li></ul><ul><li>Firefighter's personal info is contained on PDA </li></ul><ul><li>PDA only reads temperatures from sensor, does not send </li></ul><ul><li>Sensor only sends temperatures to PDA, does not read </li></ul>
  14. 15. The Software Application <ul><li>Screen 5 </li></ul><ul><li>Help Mode – Hothead Assist ™ provides a quick </li></ul><ul><li>reference guide to Incident Commanders and Medical Divison officers when facing the challenge of an overheated firefighter. </li></ul><ul><li>User Guide </li></ul><ul><li>Navigation </li></ul><ul><li>Customizing Database </li></ul><ul><li>QuikLinks to Symptoms </li></ul><ul><li>QuikLinks to Treatments </li></ul>
  15. 16. Beneficiary and End User The beneficiary and end user of the HOT System product: 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
