connectBlue(TM) Increases Focus in the Wireless Medical Market

April 21, 2011
Wireless solutions bring to healthcare providers new high-tech possibilities for wireless connectivity across medical devices and mobile networks.

These connectivity possibilities help grow the wireless medical market; a market growth which has accelerated even further with the introduction of smart mobile devices.

With the expansion of the wireless medical market, connectBlue is increasing its medical focus. With the aim to better serve new and existing customers, connectBlue has strengthened its business development and sales organization by hiring wireless medical expert Bill Saltzstein in Seattle, USA. "The opportunity to extend medical care out of the traditional environments enabled by wireless technology has just begun to realize its potential and I believe that we are in a unique position to deliver that technology to medical device companies worldwide", says Saltzstein.

"The possibilities in the medical field are great. You can cut the serial cable and replace it with a wireless connection and achieve substantial cost-savings. And you can use your smart phone as a reliable and robust operator’s panel controlling and transmitting vital data. And much more." says Rolf Nilsson, CEO of connectBlue. "However, we have seen that many potential customers in the medical field have been hesitant to fully utilize the possibilities of wireless since they need a wireless medical solution that is fail-proof 24-7."

What Nilsson is referring to is the need for a wireless provider that not only provides new and innovative solutions, but that also can provide the track-record of proven and reliable products. Such a provider is found in connectBlue that has supplied wireless technology products into the healthcare markets ever since 2003 when FDA cleared the first connectBlue device.

The connectBlue cornerstone strategy is to provide market leading wireless modules and ready-to-use products based on Wireless LAN (WLAN), Bluetooth and IEEE 802.15.4/Zigbee with compatibility over the time and across technologies. All connectBlue products are radio approved in Europe, the US, and Canada (and partly Japan) as well as certified for use in health, safety and medical electrical equipment. connectBlue has provided these wireless solutions to many medical companies including Dräger Medical, Fasstech, GE-Medical, Laborie Medical, Medtronics, Norwegian Centre for Telemedicine, Nuvon, Stryker Endoscopy, Thomson Nielsen / Best Medical, Xsensor, ZOLL Medical, and Össur.
