LAS VEGAS, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Noninvasive Medical Technologies, Inc. (NMT), an award-winning company engaged in pioneering highly advanced remote patient monitoring solutions, is pleased to commit its support to the Tim Davis Special Tactics Memorial March.
Twelve highly motivated men in two man teams are currently relay marching over 824 miles across five states, carrying 50 pound ruck sacks and a memorial plaque with Staff Sgt. Tim Davis' name engraved. U.S. Air Force SSG Davis, a USAF Combat Controller, was killed in action in Afghanistan on February 20, 2009. This relay is in honor of him and all Special Tactics teammates who have lost their lives in the line of duty, including Will Jefferson (CCT), Scott Duffman (PJ), Juan Ridout (PJ), Adam Servais (CCT), Will McDaniel (PJ), Jeremy Fresques (CCT), Jason Cunningham (PJ), Casey Crate (CCT), Derek M. Argel (CCT), John Chapman (CCT) and Scott Sather (CCT).
The trek began on October 6, 2009 at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas and will conclude at Hurlburt Field in Fort Walton Beach, Florida on October 17, 2009. Upon arrival, marchers will join other USAF comrades at Hurlburt Field Air Park at the annual Combat Control reunion where they will add SSG Davis' name to the Combat Control Memorial. Coordinators of the march hope to raise awareness and financial support for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (www.specialops.org), which provides full scholarships and educational and family counseling to the surviving children of special operations personnel who die in operational or training missions; and immediate financial assistance to severely wounded operations personnel and their families.
NMT will be actively monitoring the health status of marchers using its proprietary, patent-pending ETag(TM) technology. The ETag is a revolutionary non-contact hemodynamic monitoring device that utilizes wireless communication, display technology and advanced tactile sensors to assess multiple individuals within 300 yards of a medic or mobile support team. Ann McCaughan, COO and CTO at NMT, stated, "In addition to serving as an important field test of our technology, use of our ETags on this march will help ensure that these committed men do not suffer from any harmful medical issues during their grueling 800-mile trek. We are very proud to be participating in this noble and worthy cause to raise needed money for fallen soldiers and the families they left behind."
