SKYTRAC Systems Ltd. (SKYTRAC), a global leader in satellite communications (satcom) and intelligent connectivity solutions, announced the successful testing of real-time medical data transfer through satellite communications and cellular connectivity with corpuls, a manufacturer of robust and sophisticated preclinical and clinical patient monitoring systems, defibrillators, chest compression devices and software products.
corpuls’ latest innovation, the MIL-STD-810G and DO-160G certified corpuls3 Touch, a unique three-in-one medical device incorporating a monitor unit, patient box, and defibrillator/pacemaker, allows for the continuous monitoring of critical patients from the incident site to the hospital and is leveraged by air medical operators globally.
“We are proud to partner with SKYTRAC to offer real-time medical data transfer to air medical operators leveraging corpuls3 devices in the cabin,” mentions Robert Gerlach, Product Manager, corpuls. “This capability is essential in today’s connected world, and it is our hope that this connectivity can impact patient outcomes in a positive way.”
With SKYTRAC’s intelligent connectivity capability, the corpuls3 device can stream real-time patient data with 99.9% uptime reliability with resilient satcom in remote locations where cellular connectivity is unavailable, and dynamically switch to cellular networks when 4G/LTE connectivity is in range.
“Iridium Certus midband and 4G/LTE cellular connectivity are providing significant improvements to air medical operations,” mentions Luke Billington, Regional Business Manager, SKYTRAC. “We are finding unique and novel ways to provide operators with value, and are excited to receive positive outcomes of our integration testing with corpuls.”
