mHealth Research Daily, with Tim Bredrup The effects of stress on health have been a main focus area for public health research, but progress has been limited due to a lack of wearable sensors that can be worn effectively in the field. Researchers at Ohio State University recently analyzed wireless, wearable sensors that are a […]
mHealth Research Daily, with Tim Bredrup The need for continuous remote health monitoring is growing, especially amongst elderly patients that suffer from chronic diseases and heart conditions. In efforts to address this need, Informaticists in Portugal have proposed a system that relies on remote sensor monitoring combined with mobile and wireless computing devices. In this […]
As was covered recently, Qualcomm’s 2net Platform looks poised to make a major impact on medical device connectivity and allow for the creation for new kinds of health applications and businesses. One great example which shows the power of allowing application developers to “outsource” end-to-end connectivity is the Macaw app. It aggregates data from multiple types […]
One of the major announcements at this week’s mHealth Summit was made by Qualcomm who introduced a new platform for wirelessly connecting medical devices and declared it open for business. The 2net platform allows any medical device to connect with cloud servers, freeing manufacturers from the complexities of wireless communication.
During one of the mHealth Summit’s final “super sessions”, entitled The New Wireless Paradigm in the Medical Device Industry, Tom Watlington, CEO of San Diego-based startup Sotera Wireless, stuns a crowd full of mHealth enthusiasts when he calls out the big boys (Phillips, Medtronic, SAP) for intentionally stifling innovation directly to their faces. Bravo Mr Watlington.

Apple’s inclusion of Bluetooth 4.0, know also as the Bluetooth Low Energy protocol, in the new iPhone 4S may be the single greatest leap toward realizing the pervasive computing environment often referred to as “Internet of Things”.
Cellular providers have recently become aggressive in the promotional advancement of new technology initiatives which provide their subscribers access to a greater selection of connected medical devices.
Emergency Medical Technologies (EMT) recently published the first in man, prospective, single-blinded, phase I study to evaluate a novel, watch-based pulse detection device in the journal Heart Rhythm. The sensor used in the study is EMT’s Wriskwatch(tm), which has the look and feel of a normal wristwatch, but acts as both a motion sensor and a pulse sensor designed to identify a patient in cardiac arrest, and features built-in fall detection and panic button.
