The PEA is a wearable device for paramedics that is designed to support quick decision making in emergency situations. It combines a multitude of devices that are already available. Our solution is compact and robust enough to replace the current pager while providing many additional features, such as radio communication or pre-registration of time critical patients. PEA supports the gathering of patient data and allows for a quick assessment of the severity of the emergency. The device is permanently connected to all crucial pieces of equipment and makes communication possible in the field.
In the future, more devices should be replaced with the PEA while retaining its simplicity and ease of use. The goal is to give the paramedics more time to focus on the patient and—more importantly—to facilitate and speed up the communication to the involved stakeholders.
