technology (Source: Philips)Information and communication technologies have become an essential part of the medical device industry. One significant innovation driving development is wireless transmission of medical data. Getting rid of cables in intensive care areas increases safety and convenience, makes devices more robust against accidental damage, and ensures reliable data transmission even in challenging environments. Another promising wireless application is the use of wide-area communications such as WLAN and GSM/UMTS in home care, rehabilitation, and ambient assisted living; this will save money, improve the effectiveness of health care, and enhance patient quality of life.
In partnership with such leading manufacturers of medical equipment as Philips and Smiths Medical Deutschland GmbH, IMST is developing wireless solutions using technologies like BluetoothTM for applications that include intensive care units and home care. By working through each step--from feasibility studies to system design, hard- and software design, implementation, certification and documentation--we lead the way in incorporating wireless technologies into existing medical products.
