Our ultimate goal is to help make healthy lifestyles easier, more effective, and more affordable through seamless mobile technology. PerformTek® sensor technology has been clinically validated, and the company is pursuing FDA approval for applications within the health sector, under the Healthset® brand. Highly accurate vital statistics measurements provide the backbone of monitoring solutions for those managing hypertension, diabetes, and other medical conditions.

 

First Responder Monitoring

Medical monitoring is an important part of keeping firefighters and other first responders safe in extreme conditions. For example, in January 2008, the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) upgraded standards for the rehabilitation process in standard NFPA 1584. As part of this new standard, medical monitoring components include:

  • Heart rate
  • Body temperature
  • Respiratory rate
  • Blood pressure

While tracking these metrics is crucial, it’s also important to provide a monitoring device that does not hinder or interfere with normal duties or movements of first responders.  PerformTek®-powered audio earbuds and headsets can be easily inserted and worn as they respond to emergencies.

Military Applications

Monitoring real-time physiological data of military personnel in training and deployment situations can ensure optimal performance, contextual awareness, and distribution of additional resources, as necessary. PerformTek® sensor technology can be seamlessly integrated into communication devices military personnel already wear, eliminating the need for additional equipment to carry and maintain.
