As part of a government grant, a company specializing in textile manufacturing developed a shirt with integrated sensors for monitoring emergency first responders. The company needed a wireless system to measure and transmit signals such as heart rate, activity, position, respiration and body temperature to a portable base station for monitoring.
Working with our customer, we designed and developed an ambulatory monitor that interfaced with the customer’s shirt sensors. This monitor continuous transmitted signals to the a base station computer so the emergency coordinator could monitor each first responder’s vital signs. The base station software included a graphical interface utilizing colors to alert the emergency coordinator if a first responder was in trouble. The units were successfully tested with the Arlington County Virginia first responder teams under simulation disaster situations, allowing the customer to demonstrate the proof-of-concept of their sensor shirt.
