Extreme open-sea conditions, physical exhaustion, minimal protection and very little time to rest. All this for almost a year. The Volvo Ocean Race is a sailing race like no other. To ensure team members are at their physical and mental best throughout the race, team AkzoNobel equipped its crew with biometric sensors from cosinuss°.
Firefighters test the cosinuss° technology during emergencies and recovery phases. The aim is to precisely measure the body core temperature during the course of the day and compare it with the ambient temperature in order to detect overheating. This could create a valuable database to improve occupational safety.
Epileptic seizures are associated with considerable risks and can lead to serious accidents and injuries. To date, there is no technical solution for reliably recording seizures. But this would be essential for effective medication of patients. With EPItect, we aim to revolutionize seizure detection.
