 The 10 installation sites
The 10 installation sites are in Tokyo as well as Hokkaido, Miyagi, Saitama, Chiba, Kanagawa, Yamanashi, Aichi, Hyogo and Fukuoka prefectures.
 A vital sensing band
A vital sensing band is not a medical diagnosis device. It sends an alarm when the gathered data in addition to estimated heat stress and physical burden reach a pre-set level requiring a response.
 The level of heat stress
The system's estimates are made in four categories: "Safe," "Low heat stress level," "Medium heat stress level" and "High heat stress level." The estimation of a worker's heat stress level is made by collecting data on the temperature and humidity of the worksite as well as the worker's pulse and activity volume and analyzing them based on the Japan Society of Biometeorology's study on Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT), a composite measure used to estimate the effect of temperature and humidity on humans.
 Physical burden
Physical burden is estimated on five levels: "Generally safe," "Caution," "Concerning," "Very concerning" and "Danger." Estimates are made from the worker's pulse, which is analyzed using such indexes as the Karvonen Formula.
 Industrial accidents in Japan
The data are from the Survey on Industrial Accidents (final) by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare. http://www.mhlw.go.jp/bunya/roudoukijun/anzeneisei11/rousai-hassei/dl/16_kakutei.pdf
 The wearer’s pulse
Pulse counts per minute are estimated.
