A&D Envisions a Future of Connected Healthcare at CES

AnD Logo

Nowhere has technology made a bigger impact than the healthcare industry. And as technology evolves, patients’ relationships with that technology changes, too. These days, people are walking around with all kinds of connected devices tracking everything from heart rate to activity levels. A&D Medical has established itself as a manufacturer of non-connected health tracking devices. Now, the company is moving forward with the introduction of connected products.

Jamie met with Terry Duesterhoeft, CEO of A&D Medical. Terry talked about a study conducted by his company that showed a surprising number of patients are ready to use connected devices that gather their health information and relay that information to caregivers and other healthcare workers. Terry and Jamie also talked about privacy concerns, and what A&D is doing to ensure its customers can use their devices in a secure fashion.

The Frequency Androiter For Health Care Monitoring

Carissa stops by the Frequency booth to chat with their rep, Paul, about their new health care monitoring system called the Androiter.  As you can probably guess by the name, this runs on Android-powered devices.  The devices can monitor an array of vital signs and transmit the info, via Bluetooth, to a device.  In the video you will see how these populate their data to Google Health (you can use any standards-based health records system) and send it out over 3G.  It works via an app on the device – even on Google TV.

No price point or release date for these products as of yet – this is the cutting edge of this technology.  If you have a loved-one with any sort of health issues then this is one you will want to check out.
