The main purpose of this project is to develop a system to remotely monitor real time measurement of physiological parameters of rescuers (firefighters, chemical rescuers etc.) who are exposed to hazard during rescue execution to fulfill the need for minimizing risks endangering rescuers’ lives. It helps first-aid work as necessary support will be given once the person who monitor outside the field observes abnormal vital signs. The system consists of health monitoring device, computer and smartphone. The health monitoring device is a new generation of “smart” garments, integrating wearable sensors which will allow monitoring heart rate, breathing rate, skin temperature, posture and activity of the user. Sensors implemented ensure noninvasive measurement method, without interfering into human body. Computer and smartphone are used to communicate with the device’s sensors that capture comprehensive physiological data from user. The acquired measurements are sent wirelessly via Bluetooth, and displayed on a computer or a smartphone. Real-time physiological measurements of rescuers can be observed. This paper will also discuss on the performance of the health monitoring device. The accuracy and reliability of health monitoring is tested. Further recommendations will be given to improve this system.
