The Future of Medical Technology - Part 1

Jun 19, 2017

Like doctors wearing stethoscopes around their necks, technology and healthcare have always gone together. As technology progresses and becomes smaller, faster and ubiquitously connected, it continues to make an impact on how all healthcare professionals practice medicine.

For the next few weeks Symmetry will take a closer look at 7 different technologies, from cellular modules, video, biometric sensors to Wi-Fi modules and more. This series will delve into the healthcare applications of these IoT products how they’re changing the industry.

The series begins with Cellular Modules. Cellular modules are used in healthcare applications to provide direct back-end connectivity to the cloud or internal healthcare systems. Patient data can be uploaded instantaneously giving real-time access to healthcare providers. Additionally, using a certified cellular module, such as Digi International’s Digi XBee Cellular module, will significantly reduce time to market for healthcare devices.

Using Digi XBee Cellular in patient monitoring applications is a fitting solution for design engineers who need a fast, secure and easy to implement connection. This best-selling module from Digi brings precision, ease of use, safety and versatility to your application. Key features include: 256-bit AES Encryption, 400 MHz long range communication and simple point to multi-point mode.

Next week the series will cover how wireless video is making operating rooms more secure.
