Onda Vision Technologies, LLC (OVT) addresses the problem of early recognition of exertional heat illness in sports to enhance player safety and maximize performance. Exertional heat stroke, known as the silent killer, represents the most severe form of heat illness and stands as one of the top three leading causes of death among high school athletes with football having the highest rate. Since exertional heat stroke can cause permanent organ damage within a narrow time window (typically 30 – 60 minutes), early detection of exertional heat illness serves paramount to an athlete’s survival.
