Evalan measures physical burdening Military

Evalan measures physical burdening Military

In cooperation with the Royal Dutch Army and the University of Twente, Evalan has kicked off the ARMOR project. ARMOR is a National Technology Project financed by the Department of Defence of The Netherlands.

In the ARMOR project a new system will be developed that can determine the physical condition, endurance and resilience of military personnel during training. Different sensors will be integrated in the system to record various physiological parameters of soldiers while they participate in training missions. The measurements collected by these sensors will be processed with advanced algorithms developed by the Dutch Army and by University of Twente’s research centre for Biomedical Technology and Technical Medicine (MIRA).

The ARMOR system intends to support the army in reducing the number of injuries that soldiers incur during training, and to help optimize training programs. Eventually the system could also be used to individualize training for soldiers. One of the key innovations that is incorporated in the system is use of Evalan’s pressure sensor. This sensor will be integrated in the boots that are used by the Dutch Army, and will enable the continuous monitoring of the load that soldiers are carrying.
