Abstract
Think-A-Moves (TAMs) proposed solution, with its purely hands-free system, will allow Medics to call up critical applications and data they need, display them using heads-up display (HUD) goggles, and enter information, all through the use of speech. TAMs speech recognition software will be run natively on an Android OS device, such as a tablet computer or smart phone. TAM will develop a connectivity software framework to enable a Medic to interact with multiple heterogeneous sources of information including communications, e.g. video chat, medical databases, and electronic medical records. Medics will use speech to enter data about the injured into an Electronic Medical Record (EMR), including free-form progress notes, and to query remote data bases, such as for information regarding medical procedures, medications, and local poisonous flora fauna. The patient data will then be wirelessly stored on an Ultra Wide Band (UWB) USB storage device, where it can be transferred with the patient to the next level of care, such as a Battalion Aid Station (BAS). TAM will also improve the speed and accuracy of its speech recognition engine. Finally, TAM will gain feedback from Medics on how to integrate this prototype system with the kit that they currently use.
