NEW YORK, June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- New York College of Health Professions announces the publishing of patent #8,461,981 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office for detecting biometric changes through smart phones, apps and security systems that reflect whether guards have been injured, attacked or killed.
This patent is part of an extensive portfolio under the Intellectual Properties Agreements of New York College of Health Professions.
Lisa Pamintuan, President of New York College says, "Our Chairman, Donald Spector, has opened up a number of billion-dollar industries including the first electronic air freshener, for which the Squibb Corporation (Bristol-Myers Squibb) set up a separate division; the first hyperbaric chamber for seeds; the first location-based advertising patents; the first hydraulic exerciser and hundreds of products for Fortune 500 companies. By combining information with applications that pre-date smartphones is what futurists are all about." It is hard to imagine why anyone shouldn't know whether or not a guard is attacked, drugged or killed.
Michael Balboni, Former Deputy Secretary for Public Safety in New York under two governors and a member of the President's Homeland Security team says, "I've worked with Don for years and seen many products of his that seem so simple after the fact, but I have found that their beauty is in their simplicity. This idea will provide real time assessment of personnel in the field and enable institutions like our military and law enforcement to determine the readiness of their forces. This crucial advance can enable the immediate assistance of troops in the field and enhance the capability and response of those who are entrusted to protect us. I look forward to working with New York College and its research consortium partners on this and other projects."
New York College has recently signed Memorandums of Understanding to work with New York Medical College/ Touro University System and Wake Forest Innovations on several exciting new technologies. Other partners, both in the public and private sectors are also in discussions for joining this new research group.
President Lisa Pamintuan says, "We think this will be quick to market since the biometrics are already available and connecting the telemetry for this into security apps and encrypted networks is not a long-term project. It is important to get this product out for the military and private security firms. We also expect other products in Public Safety from this portfolio in the future."
