In 2010, the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) issued its first national broadband plan, which included a proposal for a “medical body area network” (MBAN). Specific frequencies would be assigned for medical wireless monitoring. In May, 2012, FCC issued proposed rules for these MBAN systems, providing a platform for wirelessly networking patient sensors. After initially raising concerns about radio interference, the Aerospace and Flight Test Radio Coordinating Counsel (AFTRCC) appears now to be collaborating with health institutions to allow spectrum allocation for MBANs, an important and positive development.
San Diego-based Sotera Wireless today announced they have raised an additional $12.2M in a Series D round and have signed a strategic partnership with Cerner to distribute their ViSi Mobile system when it receives anticipated FDA approval in Q1 of 2012.
