Flir Motion / Wearable sensors and app

Flir Motion
Flir Motion

Flir Motion is a training tool for first responders to improve their technique on how to remove a critically injured person from a vehicle that has been involved in a car accident.

During this procedure, the correct inmovilization of the cervical spine is important to avoid further injuries. By using wearable sensors, the system understands how a person’s spine moves in real time and provides instant feedback when a poor technique is detected.

Its digital interface allows first responders to review the excercise, have a better understanding on what to improve and be more prepared for real life scenarios.
