Heat stress is a significant problem among soldiers, firefighters, and industrial workers. Heavy gear or firefighting equipment, protective clothing, and strenuous physical exertion cause the body core temperature to rise sharply. The consequences of this can be serious: think of disorientation, loss of consciousness, or seizures. These heat-related injuries can lead to permanent health damage and even death.
Fortunately, there is a way to gain insight into heat strain: ARMOR Heat Monitor. ARMOR Heat Monitor is a monitoring solution that accurately estimates changes in core body temperature and Physiological Strain Index, presenting real-time information in an overview. This way, immediate action can be taken when values get too high.
The risk of heat injury to soldiers kept the minds busy within Military training centers. The padding, distances, and external temperature are factors that cannot be influenced. Breaks and fluid intake help against heat injury, but when and how do you take these measures exactly? Evalan was asked to develop an accurate and reliable heat monitoring solution. The result: ARMOR Heat Monitor.
