Vault RMS, a San Diego-based startup, said on Oct. 6 that it was selected to join the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s EMERGE accelerator program. The program focuses on wearable technology for first responders.
Vault RMS’ software uses biometric and situational data from wearable devices and other inputs to assemble a long-term health profile of workers exposed to health-compromising environments. Chris Memmott, the company’s co-founder and CEO, developed the product with firefighters in mind.
Vault RMS says its profile drives improvements in health, safety and overall worker productivity.
The business announced in August that it received $1.3 million in seed funding. Bill Miller of Legg Mason and San Diego-based Keshif Ventures led the round; San Francisco-based Right Side Capital participated.
The business was formerly called TrackTrain. Its technology was featured in the Innovation section of the San Diego Business Journal in early 2015.
