|Abstract:||Today`s state-of-the-art Medical-Vests-Shirts are inflexible and expensive. Typically, data collection component functions as a multi-channel cardiopulmonary digital-recorder with physiologic-sensors-array sewn to the shirt to monitor vital signs. The lack of flexibility-integral-unity and cost of the current vests is a prohibiting factor in their use in first responder applications. The vests also lack an in-built intelligence to accurately determine the health status of the person wearing the vest. UtopiaCompression Corporation UC is developing a hardware-software solution for remote based health monitoring with one specific application to monitoring the health status of first responders in pressurized and adversarial missions. The technology under development consists of two main components. The first component is a physiological vest consisting of a suite of physiological sensors interfaced with energy management units designed to prolong the life of the sensors. The sensor suite is designed to be easily integrable with currently available first responder vests. The sensors communicate wirelessly with a personal server consisting of a Decision Support Software DSS, which forms the second - truncated, over 200 words|
