Wearable Monitoring Systems - Israel Internet Association Conference (Feb 2007)

  1. 1. Wearable Medical Monitors Israel Internet Association Conference 19 February, 2007 Ofer Atzmon VP Business Development +972-52-2451771 Ofer.Atzmon@aerotel.com www.aerotel.com
  2. 2. Aerotel Medical Systems 2 • A leading manufacturer of modular, mobile & home based telemedicine and telecare solutions • Remote monitoring solutions for improving people's health, safety and quality of life • Applications: chronic care, preventive health, emergency services and rehabilitation • “2006 Patient Monitoring Company of the Year Award” by Frost & Sullivan • Recently acquired the activity of Tadiran LifeCare
  3. 3. • Continuity of care • Inside and outside the hospital • Prevention -> diagnosis -> treatment -> follow-up -> rehabilitation • Reduce hospital admissions • Allow independent living • Care for the ageing population • Cardiovascular diseases = #1 killer • Shortage of medical stuff • Make healthcare more personalized • Need to contain rising costs 3 Needs …
  4. 4. • Homecare (“hospital at home”) • Telemedicine (or telehealth) • Mobile health (M-Health) • Wearable mobile health systems 4 … and Solutions
  5. 5. What are Wearable Medical Monitors? • Wearable systems enable multi-parameter remote monitoring of human physics and physiology, by integrating • embedded non-invasive sensors, • intelligent processing, and • wireless communications, • Two main types emerging: • Wearable computing systems – becoming realistic • Intelligent biomedical clothing (IBS) – more futuristic 5Photo: Whealthy Project - EU IST/CSEM (Switzerland)

  7. 7. A More Practical Approach: MDKeeper™ Wireless Network / Internet MDKeeper™ Monitoring Device • Wristop vital signs monitor • Wireless, anytime, anywhere monitoring • Pulse (heart rate), ECG, Blood Pressure, Pulse Oximetry (SpO2)… • Two-way voice/data communication Medical Call Center Remote Web AccessAlerts 7
  8. 8. MDKeeper™ Overview 8
  9. 9. SKeeper™: Wireless Telecare System Cellular Network • Cellular voice communication • Emergency response system • Location finding • Situation and environmental sensors • Remote programming 9
  10. 10. Why Wearable Medical Monitors? • Remote monitoring - key element in medical prevention & early detection • Remote monitoring shown to improve health and cut hospital admissions by 67% • Latest developments in microsystems, nanotechnologies, information and communication technologies allow miniaturization and integration of wearable systems • Ease of use and simplicity increases users’ compliance 10
  11. 11. The Benefits of Wearable Monitoring • Significant cost savings • In particular due to early hospital discharge • Patient empowerment – improves compliance • Enhanced efficiency and reliability (no lost/false data) • Improved clinical outcomes • Improved quality of life and peace of mind • Benefits demonstrated by various independent studies • Freedom of movements for today’s mobile lifestyle 11
