Triton Systems Inc., in partnership with Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory, proposes to develop a Trauma Patient Tracking System (TPTS). This system utilizes a `Tag' that is placed on the wrist or ankle of a patient at the point of initial care, which is then activated to provide accurate location and tracking information up to the point of hospital arrival. The location system uses a synergistic combination of GPS and other wireless technologies, which are commercially available and which allow for smooth, quick, and effective transition into the marketplace. While state-of-the-art components are used, upgrading of the device's capabilities is considered in the design methodology for integration as the technologies improve. The system is designed as a standalone system for tracking trauma patients in this intended application, but it is also expandable and integrate-able into existing medical information systems. Suitable for used in both urban and rural environments, the TPTS will use a combination of wireless technologies for open air positioning, indoor and urban environment locating and tracking, Local Area Network communication, and Wide Area Network communication - all intended to communicate the information in a timely manner to both rescue and medical personnel and to record emergency responsive data.
