Smart Health Care: LifeGuard Wireless Physiological Monitor (NEEMO-BTE)
Principal Investigators
Research Area:
Clinical medicine
Species Studied
Scientific Name: Homo sapiens Species: Human

The LifeGuard system was developed for monitoring the health of astronauts to ensure their safety during space flight and extravehicular activities, and to monitor their physiology during exercise routines. This device is expected to be further developed to support medical emergency contingencies during long duration missions. The LifeGuard system provides a small autonomous physiologic and health monitoring system that will support long duration human exploration missions to extreme, remote regions of space.
