An article titled, “Key Considerations for Designing a Wireless Medical Device”, was recently featured by RF Globalnet. Written by David Hoglund and Chris Downey, the article covers what you should know when designing wireless technology into your medical device.
With the growing demand for improved patient safety, data accuracy, and mobility, the Connected Hospital is becoming a reality. The Connected Hospital is a vision of a fully integrated hospital where wireless technology allows caregivers and patients to roam throughout the hospital while providing accurate and timely monitoring. With more and more hospitals making the transition to wireless, it is especially critical that devices are securely connected to the enterprise. Obstructions such as lead lined walls, human bodies, liquids, and medical equipment can make hospitals harsh RF environments. When it comes to choosing a radio, it is especially important to make an informed decision. The article gives readers an overview of the key considerations for developing a wireless medical device such as:
- Technical requirements
- Business requirements such as current and on-going technical support
- Radio provider and what to look for in the embedded module design
- Risk of cost vs. proven performance
- Certifications and overall cost of ownership
