Jankel and Bodytrak's vibration mitigation solutions
Jankel and Bodytrak have partnered to develop technology and protection solutions to mitigate the impact of excessive vibration, particularly for defence and security platforms.
Bodytrak will utilise its non-invasive physiological monitoring technology alongside Jankel’s speciality in survivability. The focus of the partnership will be to develop a sensor-based solution to quantify and track the ongoing effects of vibration on various key regions of the human body, monitoring the compound stresses against key health and safety benchmarks, via a real-time monitoring system. This insight into the long-term impacts of excessive vibration is being used to develop improved occupant survivability and protection systems. Jankel can then offer customers a turnkey solution to solving issues or improving existing designs, through use of their patented seat technologies and vibration dampening technologies.
In addition to solving design issues, the Bodytrak system also provides options for real-time monitoring of key occupant physiology during training and or during operations to improve overall performance and manage occupant safety risks. The Bodytrak system provides a non-invasive, in-ear device that tracks key vital signatures and transmits data in real-time to the Bodytrak Incident Management Platform to automate health, safety, and performance monitoring. The system also provides options for audio communications and hearing protection.
Sam Foreman, Head of Sales and Marketing at Jankel said: “We are really enthusiastic about this new partnership that gives us a unique insight into the effects of vibration in various protection scenarios and helps us to collectively provide enhanced protection for our customers.”
Leon Marsh, CEO of Bodytrak, commented: “This partnership with Jankel is a great example of the breadth of data analytics expertise of Bodytrak and provides an opportunity to expand our core competencies. We look forward to developing this market opportunity with Jankel and setting new standards for the industry.”
