This article was originally published in Clinica
TeleMedic Systems has FDA 510(k) clearance to sell its VitalLink 1200 remote medical emergency system in the US. The device, a light-weight (6.35kg) 2-piece product, monitors and relays vital signs from a casualty to a medical unit (MU) up to 100m away, through a wireless connection. The MU then communicates with a medical centre via satellite, mobile or land telephone lines to convey information and assist non-medically qualified people at the casualty site. Already available in Europe, the compact device may be launched in the US in November this year.
