LifeBot signs Option Agreement for DREAMS ambulance
LifeBot, a company that provides exclusive patented emergency telemedicine and home telehealth personal survival life-support solutions, recently announced that it has executed an Option Agreement to pursue world-wide exclusive licensing rights to DREAMS, the $14 million advanced EMS ambulance developed by the Texas Engineering Experiment Station (TEES), UT Health and the United States Military.
The software, hardware and telecommunications aspects of the DREAMS (Disaster Relief and Emergency Medical Services) program are led by James A. Wall, director of Computing and Information Technology at the Texas Center for Applied Technology (TCAT), and Texas A&M researcher Larry Flournoy. TCAT is a center within TEES.
The digital EMS program has developed and deployed wireless video communications and combining AVL/GPS (Automatic Vehicle Location/Global Positioning System) technology and advanced software to enable ambulances and helicopters to reach the victim sooner, begin triage, diagnosis and treatment on the scene. It also coordinates helicopters and ambulances to minimize transport time to the nearest appropriate facility using continuous "live" communication with the facilities.
Considered by many to be the most highly developed ambulance to hospital EMS telemedicine communications system ever developed, DREAMS is the first and only system to provide fully interactive simultaneous "live" transmissions of video and critical patient data.
