Research and Scientific References
Just like our soldiers, our first-responders and disaster personnel require a constant search for new solutions to old problems. In this white paper we tackle two direct problems and one indirect one.
The first two problems are contagious disease control and portability/weight.
According to many studies (see references), on average 36% of all deployed or in field training personnel become ill with preventable, contagious diseases. There are two aspects of this problem.
A) After Shelter and Food is secured, Hygiene is the most important issue: As mentioned above 36% of the active deployed personnel are going to become ill. That represents a very serious problem since management would have to account for the number of personnel that are going to be down and compensate accordingly.
B) Cost: Getting 36% of the personnel back into full production capacity requires medicine, treatment centers, and therapy while increasing number of recruits deployed to compensate for the ones that are down. Added together, these costs run into the millions of dollars every year.
The second problem is portability/weight. In any disaster, carry-on equipment is essential, and any ounce added to it creates problems with agility, mobility and endurance. If there is a solution, it would have to be light and efficient, and that is exactly what our product lines offer.
The third subtle problem is the psychological effect of any disaster and the resulting lack of cleanliness felt by every worker and victim in the field. Nothing makes a human being feel worthless and sick more than unwanted filth. When a disaster occurs, many times a clean refreshing shower is something that can’t be achieved for long periods of time. Psychological well-being is critical and makes a difference in the field. Our products touch the human heart and fill the human soul in a very particular way; they bring pride, honor and respect with them to both the victims of the disaster as well as the personnel providing the support.
In conclusion, the problem is that at this point in time all field personnel are required to carry a first aid kit but not a hygiene kit. Our company and our products have devoted large amount of resources and research to bring a series of products that will act as preventive medicine while providing comfort and a sense of care to our workers in the field without the burden of extra weight and saving millions of dollars in medical treatment for the contagious diseases that our products prevent.
