Abstract
"The requirement for a low-cost personal metabolic sensor that has the ability to detect high levels of breath metabolites arises from the need for personnel to do their duties with a high state of readiness in all deployment situations. The object of thePhase 1 is to determine the feasibility of a compact metabolic monitor that has low energy/power requirements and is low cost to manufacture. This device will have a simple user interface and rugged construction. The aim of the proposed program is tobuild a prototype unit and evaluate it under a variety of realistic conditions. The results of the work are expected to be a pocket-sized monitor system capable of rapidly determining a soldier's metabolic status. The commercial application of this device will include diet compliance monitoring and applications in diabetes therapy."
