Vital Mote Sensors

intelligent triage tags, wireless vital signs sensors, and location sensors

VitalMote Front View VitalMote is wearable device that is worn on the patient’s wrist or neck.   It monitors patients triage status, vital signs, and location in both indoor and outdoor environments.  VitalMote devices connects to a base station over an ad-hoc mesh network.

VitalMote Software

patient monitoring and reporting software suite

This transceiver can plug-and-play with any USB compatible device – such as a laptop, tablet PC, or PDA.  A VitalMote software suite runs on the laptop: its capabilities include vital signs monitoring, map-based patient tracking, and pre-hospital patient care reporting. 

Web Portal

web based information center sharing critical information on incidents and patients

syndromic surveillence incident reporting

A Surveillance and Incident Reporting PDA (SIRP) is a handheld unit for medical field personnel to collect and report clinical information on sick or injured people during large public events. 


video telementoring to facilitate triage and treatment
