Medical Devices

From continuous glucose sensing to remote patient monitoring, our wireless solutions enable the modernization of healthcare.

Wireless medical devices are crucial in enabling the modern healthcare system with efficient remote care. Connected medical devices monitor and continuously track a patient’s physiological conditions and can transmit data and communicate with other devices. The collected health data can then be used by healthcare professionals to diagnose patients remotely. Smart medical sensors, such as a continuous blood glucose monitors, can be used to automatically control an insulin pump to deliver the correct dose at the right time.  

Growth in Wireless Medical Devices

What Medical Device Users Need From IoT  

Security and Privacy

Smart medical devices collect, process, and transmit private health data, making security the most critical user requirement. A single breach is enough to lose a user’s trust. Any end product that stores, processes, receives, or transmits personal data must be designed securely for current and future threats. 

Reliability  

Medical device users’ health, sometimes even life, can depend on a stable wireless connection. Data needs to be transmitted to the cloud continuously for processing and diagnosing, regardless of environment and circumstances.

Long Lifetime

Because a medical device is similar to a life companion that always goes with its user, energy-efficiency and long battery life are among the top customer requirements. If a device runs out of battery at the wrong moment it can be catastrophic, so intelligent low power design, sensing, and predicting battery life are crucial. 

How to Meet IoT Product Lifecycle Challenges

To succeed in the intensely competitive smart home market, it is not enough to just develop and launch products to the market. With the continuously evolving software, security and wireless ecosystems, you must consider how to manage the entire IoT product lifecycle, from design to decommissioning, while meeting the user requirements every single day.
