Ingestible Pill Monitors Firefighter’s Vitals To Ensure Safety
A new capsule is being tested in Australia that tracks stats like body temperature and respiration rate while emergency services workers are on the job.
Firefighters in Australia are testing a new plastic-coated pill that tracks their vitals while they are on duty. The Equivital EQ02 LifeMonitor capsule contains a thermometer and a small transmitter.
Body temperature, heart and respiration rate data is collected and sent to an external computer for monitoring. If the stats show the firefighter is in danger, they can be alerted and pulled out before anything bad happens.
