The Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) has partnered with Sotera Wireless, Inc. to develop a device that can monitor vital signs without connecting wired sensors from the patient to other equipment. This technology provides paramedics, clinicians and other medical personnel with a hands-free, wireless device to monitor a patient’s vital signs, creating a safer environment for both EMS personnel and patients. No longer will first responders have to worry about entangled wires and a heavy monitor to transport with the patient.
