The ever expanding medical field is now implementing concepts of telehealth and telerehabilitation to expedite the process of transmitting information. This rapidly developing application of clinical medicine transmits information either in real time or is scheduled at specific times throughout the day.
RF transceivers are at the forefront of the trend to supplement wireless communications for medical implantable devices. These devices not only include cardiac products such as pacemakers, but also extend to glucose insulin monitors for diabetes management and vascular blood pressure monitors. Due the critical nature of medical applications, Amphenol RF adheres to strict quality procedures to ensure that our products offer consistent reliability in any medical environment.
- MRI, or Magnetic Resonance Imaging, is a diagnostic imaging tool which transmits an RF signal to a patient under a powerful magnetic field.
- Wireless Patient Monitoring systems monitor a patient’s vital signs from a remote location. These systems typically operate within the industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) radio bands of 900 MHz, 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz.
- Operating Room Integration systems include video equipment and streaming hardware. This information allows surgeons to operate with greater precision and efficiency.
- Implantable Medical Devices (IMDs) are controlled by an external transmitter that sends RF signals through the skin to an implanted receiver. Examples of IMD’s include glucose meters, pacemakers and neurostimulators.
- Hospital Equipment RFID - Wireless RF technology allows hospitals to track their equipment throughout their facility at all times so they can know where the equipment is and whether it’s being used.
- Diagnostic Imaging systems such as ultrasounds, CT scans, and radiography, create visual images of a body’s interior for medical analysis.
- Teleradiology – Teleradiology utilizes standard network technologies to transmit radiological patient imaging such as X-Rays, CTs and MRIs, from one location to another.
