In the health and medical market the use of wireless technology is growing fast. Trends in personal health, lifestyle and demographics are contributing directly to skyrocketing health care costs and the industry is looking for new ways for improved customer care and cost savings.

Bluetooth HDP technology was created by The Bluetooth SIG and leading health and medical equipment manufacturers to support wireless in-home, in-clinic and in-hospital applications.

Bluetooth technology is ideally suited for wireless data transfer due to its low power consumption, low cost, high security, robustness and interoperability.

"It is expected that by 2025 there will be 1.2 billion people over 60 years in the world and they will all require more from the health care services. Combining this with a growing number of people suffering from obesity as well as the opportunities in personal well-being and sports, health and medical industries can certainly benefit from wireless Bluetooth technology," comments Tom Nordman, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Bluegiga.
