HotHead Technologies' Heat Sensor Shows Exciting Potential by Kennesaw State University Researchers

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 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.

Kennesaw State is currently in the process of conducting the second phase of the H.O.T. system research. Results will be submitted to peer-reviewed scientific journals as early as this summer.
