LifeBot gets option to market Army's 'Super Ambulance' telemedicine system

LifeBot, a home telehealth company founded by inventor and entrepreneur R. Lee Heath--who created the technology that enabled the automatic external defibrillator--has received an option to obtain worldwide licensing rights for the Disaster Relief and Emergency Medical Services (DREAMS), an ambulance-based telemedicine and disaster-management system. DREAMS, developed by the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston and Texas A&M University in conjunction with the U.S. Army's Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center, powers what's being marketed as a "Super Ambulance." The system provides live transmissions of multiple remote-controlled cameras, telemetry data and patient records between ambulances and hospital emergency departments and trauma centers.
