Build standards-based, interoperable personal health devices

Build standards-based, interoperable personal health devices

The EtherMind IEEE 11073 enables a quick and low cost route for medical tablet and sensor device OEMs to build standards-based and interoperable health systems over Personal Area Networks (PAN) or Local Area Networks (LAN).

The EtherMind IEEE 11073 stack from Mindtree is an optimized, abstracted and layered solution, certified by Continua Health Alliance (Certification IDs 38 and 39). It supports multiple platforms and is designed to address the needs of OEMs in the medical, health and fitness industries. The EtherMind IEEE 11073 is adaptable to small sensor devices as well as larger collector/monitoring equipment hosts such as laptops, smartphones, tablets and PCs, which interact with each other using wired or wireless PAN or LAN.

EtherMind IEEE 11073 manager opens up exciting possibilities in connected health. It performs the managerial role in specialized devices such as blood glucose meters, pulse oxymeters, weighing scales, cardiovascular fitness and activity monitors and others devices. In devices like mobile phones, PCs and tablets, the IEEE 11073 manager provides interfaces to plug in a GUI or MMI, specific to the OEMs.

We have contributed significantly to the development of various device specializations and protocols. The list of device specializations include 11073-10406-2011 - Basic electrocardiograph (ECG) (1- to 3-lead ECG), 11073-10417-2011 - Glucose meter, 11073-10418-2011 - International Normalized Ratio (INR) Monitor, 11073-10421-2010 - Peak expiratory flow monitor (peak flow), 11073-10441-2013 - Cardiovascular fitness and activity monitor, 11073-10472-2010 - Medication Monitor and 11073-20601a-2010- Optimized Exchange Protocol.
