Wireless Standard added to Continua Health Alliance Design Guidelines

SAN RAMON, Calif., June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The ZigBee(R) Alliance announced today that the Continua Health Alliance has endorsed ZigBee Health Care as Continua's new low power local area network (LAN) standard. ZigBee Health Care offers interference-free wireless connectivity, supporting thousands of devices on a single network. Continua recommends ZigBee for sensing and control in professional settings, homes, recreation centers and across large campuses. Continua Health Alliance is the leading non-profit coalition of major health care and technology companies in the industry.

For the Continua Health Alliance Design Guidelines, ZigBee Health Care offers secure, robust, battery-efficient wireless connectivity for patient activity and facilities monitoring while delivering the freedom of wireless operation outside of buildings. ZigBee peacefully coexists with other wireless technologies, including Wi-Fi, a critical requirement for patient safety and use in health care facilities. ZigBee Health Care runs on a wide-range of cost-effective and certified silicon platforms already available from many of the world's largest semiconductor manufacturers.

"Continua's selection of ZigBee Health Care follows a rigorous technical review and seeing firsthand the ability of ZigBee Health Care to meet the requirements set forth by the Continua Health Alliance," said Rick Cnossen, Continua Health Alliance president and chairman of the Board of Directors. "ZigBee Health Care can be utilized around the world in a wide variety of settings and is particularly well suited for use in low-power LAN applications."

Products using the standard will help ageing and physically challenged people remain independent. It also features the security required to protect personal data and conform to regulatory policies.

"As one of the leading companies in health care, Philips anticipates the use of ZigBee Health Care in a variety of products," said Paul Coebergh van den Braak, senior director at Royal Philips Electronics and a member of the Continua Board of Directors. "ZigBee Health Care offers a comprehensive standard for both personal monitoring and use along with medical facility use."

ZigBee Health Care devices can interact with other ZigBee wireless technologies already deployed in consumer electronics, home automation and commercial building automation.

"The ZigBee Alliance looks forward to a long and productive relationship with the Continua Health Alliance and appreciates their selection of ZigBee Health Care for inclusion in the Continua Health Alliance Design Guidelines," said Dr. Robert F. Heile, chairman of the ZigBee Alliance. "ZigBee Health Care is ready for product manufacturer use today and is backed by a strong ecosystem of suppliers offering certified platforms to suit any device need."
