Healthcare Internet Things (IoT) Devices Present ‘Ideal’ Opportunities for Today’s POC Caregivers
ORANGE COUNTY, Calif., Sept. 1—DeviceLab Inc., an Orange County medical device design and product development company, today announced the launch of its new Wireless Medical Device Design Center.
According to DeviceLab founder and CEO Dac Vu, the Medical Device Design Center will function more as an interdisciplinary entity than a discrete division, harnessing more than 15 years of DeviceLab’s proven experience in:
- Medical Device Design and Management
- Medical Device Industrial Design
- Electronics Engineering
- Medical Device Software Development
- Medical Device UI/UX Development
“The Center has state-of-the-art wireless medical platforms and technologies in its toolbox, and its driven highly qualified staff that knows how to use those tools for wireless system design,” said Vu. “Additionally, our familiarity enables us to anticipate and supersede challenges for new wireless medical products that will require clearances U.S. FDA 510(k) and CE Mark clearances.”
Vu created the center to meet rapidly growing interest and demand for innovative wireless devices in healthcare in particular, those that take advantage of the healthcare Internet of Things ecosystem.
Also known more simply as “IoT for healthcare,” Vu said this revolutionary mobile health technology is ideal for POC healthcare facilities as it enables clinicians and doctors to integrate medical devices—such as pumps, monitors, complex cart systems and other instrumentation—with hospital infrastructure for seamless, secure and continuous patient monitoring from virtually any location.
Vu also said these new mobile health technologies have the potential to get even more from a spectrum of portable and wearable monitors, such as:
- Blood pressure
- Force sensing
- External input and output
- UV index
- Ambient light
“We are perfectly positioned to become a leader in wireless medical device development,” said Vu. “Our state-of-the-art mobile medical solutions are explicitly designed to push the boundaries for IoT medical devices.”
