Non-contact sensors

A new kind of non-contact sensors is now entering the mobile health market. A Georgia company is introducing a vital signs monitoring solution that slips underneath a bed or chair mattress and requires no contact with the patient.

Sensiotec’s Virtual Medical Assistant (VMA)  captures a patient’s vital signs through Ultra-Wideband (UWB), a form of low-power radar technology developed by the military. Company officials say UWB produces no ionizing radiation, generates high temporal and spatial resolutions, can see through solid objects and body tissue, doesn’t require much power and accommodates established narrowband systems.

Continua, HIMSS unveil Personal Connected Health Alliance

The new alliance´s overarching mission will be to “promote the adoption of technology designed to produce highly informed and integrated solutions,” in other words  ”personalized health tools that meet lifestyle needs”.

Continua carries its Design Guidelines based on global interoperability standards into the collaboration. The guidelines steer vendors toward “end-to-end, plug-and-play connectivity in personal connected health”. Continua maintain that certification decreases time to market while reducing development costs and building security in from the beginning.

From our regional perspective this is of great interest – the on going work by Continua to integrate multiple global standards into ”Continua’s Design Guidelines” means that a certified product will have application in many markets, without further implementation.” For small companies from our part of the world this is an interesting opportunity as our own regional market is to small.
