Proposal Title: Responder Wireless Physiological Monitoring
Topic Number: H-SB07.1-005
Phase: Phase I
Topic Title: Responder Wireless Physiological Monitoring Device
Organization: Impact Technologies, LLC
Address: 200 Canal View Blvd
Rochester, NY 14623-2893  
Abstract: Impact Technologies, in collaboration with the University of Rochester's Center for Future Health, propose to develop and demonstrate a truly integrated wireless physiological sensor suite and associated health monitoring software system capable of assessing first responders' health status during emergency operations. Real-time human health diagnostics and decision support software will be developed while leveraging existing COTS sensors, wireless communication devices and data storage specifications. The proposed integrated suite of hardware and software will provide the DHS with the capability to provide first responders with personal health status monitoring for the duration of their crisis involvement. Specifically, the core innovations of the proposed project include: 1) application of existing sensors required to measure physiological parameters such as ECG, respiratory rate, CO exposure and body temperature; 2) sensor and health diagnostic anomaly detection capabilities to ensure accurate, reliable assessment of first responders' physiological status and overall health condition; 3) communication protocols to transmit sensor and health feature information to appropriate devices for processing, storage, and results display; and 4) a practical concept of operations that includes both individual and command center analysis modules. A bread-board instrument with individual & command center graphical user interface concepts for demonstration of the concept will be delivered at the end of Phase I.
