TruTouch Technologies, a pioneer in non-invasive biometric intoxication detection systems, today announced that it has secured a $438,000 grant to accelerate the development of its next-generation technology platform.
The grant was awarded and is administered by the United States Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC) and the Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC) at Fort Detrick, Md., under contract number W81XWH1011067.
Dr. Trent Ridder, CTO of TruTouch, said, "We are delighted to announce the successful awarding of the grant, which will help advance the commercialization of our TruTouch intoxication detection systems that are already enjoying success in the law enforcement support, oil drilling, military and transportation operation markets.”
He added, "TruTouch's mission is to help eliminate alcohol-related dangers in society by providing a simple, accurate, and cost-effective test to ensure driver and equipment operator safety."
The TruTouch products use an advanced intoxication detection technology that uses light to measure a subject's alcohol level instead of bodily fluids or other means. With TruTouch, a test subject places his finger on a near infrared scanning system, which then analyzes the level of intoxicant in the subject's system. The device can produce accurate results in seconds, and has a built-in biometric identification system to ensure test result integrity.
Unlike a Breathalyzer, the TruTouch products require no user training, no disposables, no samples, and no operator assistance is required...
