Developing Masks to Fight COVID-19

ABGI is working with the Pandemic Mask Company to develop masks to help in the fight against COVID-19.

American Biomedical Group has begun selling the American Vent Free face mask (AVF) based upon the guidelines established by the United States Food & Drug Administration Emergency Use Authorization for source control face masks.

Understanding Human Movement Patterns

NASA recently published a paper on understanding human movement patterns within cislunar habitats using AllTraq.

NASA used the AllTraq Realtime Location System to track crew members with RFID badge tags during mock procedures in various cislunar habitat prototypes at Johnson Space Center.

AllTraq enabled the team to develop heat maps, zone time histograms, zone time utilization tables and task/time density tables. The data was used to decrease crew interference, lower task wait times and identify areas of underutilization which lead to interior layout changes in the habitats.

We are proud to provide NASA with realtime location and sensor data for the Cislunar, ARES and NEEMO projects.

Kickin COVID-19: Reopening Texas Summit

ABGI recently attended the Kickin COVID-19: Reopening Texas Summit to demonstrate products we're working on to help fight the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The Summit brought together business, community and government leaders to explore COVID-19 challenges in North Texas. ABGI CEO James K Burgess III joined a panel of experts to discuss pandemic strategies and innovations.

ABGI was at the event to demonstrate Portable Isolation Units and the Anti-Viral Faceshield System (AVF).

Portable Isolation Unit

Portable Isolation Units are modular negative / positive pressure patient rooms with UVGI, air sterilization and waste containment to provide a safer environment for patients and healthcare workers. The units also feature AllTraq realtime location and sensor data for remote monitoring.

The Anti-Viral Faceshield System is a respirator style mask that kills COVID-19. The mask creates a measurable, low voltage electrical charge that actively kills the virus on contact.

TemperatureTraq Video System

The TemperatureTraq Video System provides automated temperature readings of individuals entering facilities.

ABG Tag and Traq Inc., a subsidiary of American Biomedical Group Inc., continues to provide US healthcare, industry workers, and first responders with safety and security solutions.

The TemperatureTraq Video System combines thermographic imaging with hi-definition optical photography to provide automated temperature readings of multiple individuals entering office buildings, factories, schools, grocery or retail stores with sub degree accuracy.

Unlike our competitors, the system is equipped with optional facial recognition. This provides prompt identification of any individual with a compromised temperature reading, enabling others to remain safe from accidental exposure. The ability to link with employee identification cards adds an element of security to all work environments.

The TemperatureTraq Video System provides instant feedback via the software and indicator light attached to the camera.

The TemperatureTraq Video System includes a 100% performance guarantee backed by Amerimed Limited.

Portable Isolation Units

ABGI is proud to serve and support the FDA, US Army, NASA and our commercial business clients during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our CAP and AllTraq programs will continue to operate without interruption.

ABGI is also dedicated to helping prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We have developed Portable Isolation Containment Units (P-ICU) for onsite quarantine and containment of infectious disease.

ABGI Portable Isolation Containment Units are negative pressure patient rooms with UVGI, air sterilization and waste containment. The units can be shipped pre-fabricated or as a kit for onsite assembly.

Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Show

ABGI / AllTraq project manager Jim Kelley was recently elected as an Honorary Vice President of the Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Show.

The Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Show (also known as the Fort Worth Stock show) is the oldest continuously running livestock show and rodeo. It has been held annually in Fort Worth, TX since 1896.

Congratulations, Jim!

NASA NEEMO 23 Mission

We were honored to support the 2019 NASA NEEMO 23 Mission this summer in Florida.

NEEMO 23 Crew

The NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations project (NEEMO) is a NASA analog mission used to prepare and train astronauts, engineers and scientists for future space exploration. NEEMO missions take place in Aquarius, the only permanent underwater research lab in the world.

For NEEMO 23 we used AllTraq to track equipment, boats and environmental habitat data during the mission. Users could view the data anywhere from any internet connected device via the AllTraq website or within the NASA mission management software (Playbook). The system provided 3D location tracking in Aquarius, 2D location tracking in the Aquarius Reef Base onshore and GPS tracking for the boats to help provide full accountability of tagged assets as they travel between locations. AllTraq also provided realtime remote monitoring of O2, CO2, ambient temperature and humidity inside Aquarius.

Our goal is to work with NASA to develop a system that could help save time managing inventory so crew members can dedicate more time to mission objectives.

AllTraq at the VPP Conference

We recently participated in the Region VI VPP Conference in Oklahoma City.

The AllTraq team demonstrated our RFID employee safety badges with realtime fall detection and emergency button press. We were also able to put together realtime precision tracking to demonstrate asset management and environmental safety monitoring.

Harvester Tracking Prevents Contamination

The current romaine lettuce E. Coli outbreak has intensified, becoming the largest in over a decade.

We're working with Factor IV Solutions to provide real time location tracking of harvesters, cleaning equipment and employees in the field. Harvesters are equipped with AllTraq receivers that report GPS location and pick up the exact distance of equipment and workers tagged with RFID devices to verify sanitation procedures.

New AllTraq Personnel Badge

The newest version of the AllTraq personnel badge has some great new safety and security features.

The RFID enabled badge is now thinner and lighter. The badge has an emergency button that users can press to trigger an audible alarm and/or send text messages to designated personnel. It is also equipped with fall detection by monitoring accelerometer g-force readings.

AllTraq personnel badges offer real time location with accuracy of 6 - 18 inches. Perfect for job safety, security or training applications.

Safety - Track personnel to ensure proper safety protocols are followed. Locate team members in emergency situations. Distress button and fall detection alerts available.

Security - Limit access to restricted or dangerous areas. Track visitors and temporary personnel.

Training - Keep track of personnel during training procedures and review historical data to increase productivity.
