The Aerotel team had a busy event demoing their suite of solutions for the mHealth market. First up is the GeoSkeeper which is a “Personal Communicator with Distress Alarm and GPS Location” a product designed to serve a wide audience made up of the “elderly, chronically ill, children or lone workers”.
Capable of full remote (over-the-air) programming this capable wrist worn device includes a built-in Cellular Speakerphone, embedded quad-band GSM/GPRS module, speed dialling buttons, automated answering (from predefined callers), GPS Location and Tracking and “geofencing feature” which offers accurate location of users who wander outside a specified zone (e.g. neighbourhood or school area).
Next up is the HeartOne™, a pocketsize “transtelephonic single lead ECG Event Recorder” .
Patients simply place their thumbs on the designated electrodes and push a button to record a rhythm lead. The recorded result is then transmitted to the “Heartline Receiving Station” by dialing in and playing the audio code down the telephone line.
Other gadgets on show included a bluetooth blood pressure monitor, JnJ’s OneTouch Bloog Glucose Monitor and Aerotel’s home base station solution.
A really good sign of the times was the level of interest that I saw from delegates at the Aerotel Stand. Definitely one to watch.
