Original Press Release:
New Personal Heat Strain Monitor
Oconomowoc, Wisconsin (June 1, 2002) -- Quest Technologies' announced today the release of a NEW personal heat strain monitor within the QUESTemp Series of Heat Stress and Thermal Environmental Monitors -- the QUESTemp® III.
Heat Stress can affect the quality of life, and can jeopardize the safety and productivity of affected workers as well as those around them. The QUESTemp® III further simplifies heat stress management with a miniature datalogging instrument for monitoring individual physiological strain in response to heat stress. The extremely compact QUESTemp® III is comprised of a sensor belt assembly worn comfortably around the chest and consists of a disk temperature sensor, heart rate sensor, and audible/visible indicators.
The QUESTemp® III is the culmination of extensive research funded by the Electric Power Research Institute and performed by Westinghouse Electric and Pennsylvania State University. The research indicated that body temperature combined with heart rate were the best indicators of acute heat stress exposures.
