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 wirelessly sent to a PDA where it can be monitored in real-time. In the event a player's temperature rises above normal, an audible alert is set off to warn a coach or certified athletic trainer that the player should be evaluated and cooled down.
