ATLANTA, Feb. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- HotHead Technologies, Inc. today
announced that the technology they have developed shows promising signs in
early research results by Kennesaw State University researchers as an early
warning system for heat injury.
"It's exciting news that research from a university as respected as
Kennesaw State has been able to verify much earlier than we anticipated, in
the preliminary stages of research that the reliability and validity of this
device may be so quickly established," said Jay Buckalew, Founder and CEO of
HotHead Technologies. "Heat-related injury and death has been of great concern
recently. We're thankful that, starting this season, we can begin to put the
minds of parents, coaches and certified athletic trainers at ease."
"In more than a decade of conducting prototype research, I have never seen
data come out as tight as the data we collected for this technology," said Dr.
Laurie Tis PhD., ATC., FACSM, Associate Dean and Professor at Kennesaw State
University. "The research is on its way to confirming the correlation between
actual body temperature and the relayed information. This is just a good,
solid device. I am confident that when HotHead Technologies decides to go to
market, it will be ready."
As the spring football season approaches, universities and high schools
throughout the country are beginning to ask how they can properly measure the
body temperature of their student-athletes and prevent these types of
heat-related injuries. They have never been able to accurately monitor the
body temperature of an athlete on the field - until now.
The Heat Observation Technology (H.O.T.) system provides coaches and
athletic trainers with an early-warning detection system. The dime-size device
is integrated into an athlete's helmet where it tracks the temperature trends
of players on the field. That data is then
