The MobiCare Wireless Patient Monitor

First Use of MobiCare™ Wireless Vital Signs Monitor in Surgery

In Thailand last week, engineers from Biox Instruments Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of Vasomedical, conducted the first demonstration of our MobiCare™ patient monitoring system’s capabilities in a live surgical procedure at Bangpakok 8 International Hospital under the supervision of Dr. Jantra Tipchai.

The MobiCare Wireless Patient Monitor is a vital signs monitoring system that acquires multiple physiological signals of a patient and wirelessly transmits the signals to a nearby or remote receiver for viewing.  In this very first surgical application, the MobiCare system wirelessly transmitted the surgical patient’s signals to a touch-screen tablet receiver used by the anesthetist in the operating room.  It was also demonstrated that the monitoring session of the patient’s vital signs could be broadcasted live throughout the hospital for remote viewing by authorized medical personnel on their tablets or smart phones.

The staff at the hospital was very impressed with MobiCare’s technical performance, ease of use and its flexibility in connectivity, both inside and outside of the hospital.  Currently, they are evaluating its potential in various clinical settings throughout all four hospitals of the Bangpakok Hospital Group as well as in their ambulance service.

We appreciate the opportunity to work with the Bangpakok Hospital Group to explore various applications of our products.  In addition to providing remote viewing capabilities of monitoring a patient’s vital signs, thereby enabling consultation from a distant location, the MobiCare system also presents as a great ally in the battle against highly contagious diseases, such as Ebola, by minimizing exposure to only necessary physical contact between the patient and care staff.

Showcasing EECP Therapy: Wrapping up a Successful show at the 2013 Arab Health Exhibition!

The Arab Health in Dubai has been a very successful show, the four days spent here were well worth it. It further positioned EECP and Biox in the forefront of vascular diseases solutions.  We met a lot of people from various parts in the Middle East region as well as other countries as far away as Malaysia.  Working the show has been nothing but pleasure. The people are very welcoming and were eager to learn about our products and their benefits, including the demonstration of EECP in our booth and learn exactly how the therapy works. Physicians and distributors were very pleased to learn in detail of all the clinical benefits that EECP has been proven to have and we’re happy to further educate
themselves on EECP and our Biox ambulatory products.

Having our distributor, K.O.K here with us in the booth all week helped us create more distribution opportunities globally as well as in the Middle East. Most of the distributors that came up to the booth were very professional and treated the conversation as a professional business meeting of getting to know the product line and at the same time letting us get to know them and their company. This show helped us introduce EECP and Biox to many powerful and influential people like numerous advisors to Ministries of Health in the Middle Eastern region countries and it also gave us the ability to promote, market and educate physicians and other clinical professionals about our products.
