smart cover / Rescue Equipment

According to statistics, 60 percent of injuries from major accidents result in permanent disability due to a slow or insufficient triage process. Smart cover (take care) is a rescue equipment for improving the speed of the triage process and increasing the quality of rescue measures by reducing human errors that occur due to high stress levels. This equipment has three different parts: the smart cover, the ‘take care’ triage application and the third eye (tracking system). Smart cover is made of smart textiles. It is used to cover the injured person in order to automatically analyse the severity of their injuries.

An innovative approach that, if implemented properly, provides injured persons and first responders as well as rescue workers with an effective solution in challenging situations. Once needs have been analyzed and communicated, the corresponding measures can follow quickly. Of great benefit to many players to improve their work. Since every second often counts in an emergency, the product offers important assistance to helpers as well as family members in dealing with the patient. If the technology functions as described, the product would be very practical.
