Remote Monitoring of Elderly People Suffering From CHF, COPD, Diabetes and Other Chronic Diseases now Becomes Easier and More Effective With a New Interactive Telehealth Monitor Based on GSM/GPRS Mobile Phone Technology
NOERRESUNDBY, Denmark, May 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- RTX Healthcare today announced a new member to the family of interactive telehealth monitors, which allows healthcare system integrators and disease management companies to effectively monitor patients at home. The RTX3371 GSM/GPRS Telehealth Monitor collects vital signs wirelessly from external devices and subjective patient information from patient questionnaires and transmits the data directly to the system integrator or disease management company's own clinical information system. The collected vital signs include weight, blood pressure, blood glucose, peak flow, SpO2, ECG, blood coagulation and others. All external devices are products from major third party medical device manufacturers.
Bjarne Flou, CEO of RTX Healthcare says: "Expanding our product portfolio to include a GSM/GPRS mobile phone technology enabled Telehealth Monitor is a natural next step in the progression of our vision to become the preferred supplier of telehealth equipment. Our Telehealth Monitors are extremely simple and intuitive to use for elderly patients. Furthermore, the flexibility of the device and our business model, where RTX Healthcare sell the RTX3371 Telehealth Monitor for a one-off fee without a proprietary backend, makes our monitors an easy and preferred choice for telehealth providers". Bjarne Flou continues: "The RTX3371 GSM/GPRS Telehealth Monitor is the second member of a family of telehealth monitors, which also include the RTX3370 monitor with built-in PSTN landline phone modem".
