Measuring various bodily functions
Evalan developed the Heat Stress monitor for the technology project ARMOR (Ambulant Registration of Military Operational Readiness System). The monitor measures physiological parameters:
- Heart rate
- Average body temperature
- Physical Strain Index (PSI)
By means of a sensor in the wearable which serves as an optical heart rate monitor, the measurements of the soldier are monitored by an associated device. This device is connected to an app in which all the measurements can be viewed by the sergeant or trainer.
Inducement for a medical check
If the heat stress value reaches a certain threshold, the monitor alerts the supervisor who can take appropriate action. The monitor serves as inducement for a medical check and prevents heat stress.
Collaboration and support
The ARMOR Heat Stress monitor is used in research setting by the Ministry of Defence. In collaboration with the department Trainingsgeneeskunde and Trainingsfysiologie of Defense we are working on the validation of the product.
