Hothead Technologies, Inc. and Sivix Logistics LLC announced a partnership today to adapt the Sivix key computing fob and associated sensor monitoring module to its lineup of heat sensing safety solutions. These solutions are based upon the H.O.T.™ System, a patent-pending system that embeds a heat sensing unit inside the helmet of an athlete, firefighter, soldier, or other personnel and collects and relays periodic temperature readings from that person’s skin to a portable data collector . The portable device is used to alert the individual or an observer that the person’s body temperature has exceeded a pre-determined threshold. The Sivix offering includes a mobile device the size of a car remote, and ultra low power micro sensor modules that monitor without obstructing the athletic performance.
The H.O.T.™ System, which stands for HEAT OBSERVATION TECHNOLOGY, was the first line of heat monitoring tools created to assist individuals and groups in getting a step ahead on the dangerous and silent attack of heat illness. Football was the first line of entry for the H.O.T.™ System. The company is now positioned to support markets such as the military, public safety (Firefighters, SWAT, HAZMAT), and industrial, as well as other sports. Hothead Technologies Received the BEST OF WHAT’S NEW Award from Popular Science Magazine for being one of the Top 100 most innovative inventions of 2009.
