Skytrac Systems has completed successful testing of real-time medical data transfer through satellite communications and cellular connectivity with Corpuls, a manufacturer of preclinical patient monitoring systems, defibrillators, chest compression devices, and software products.
Corpuls' MIL-STD-810G and DO-160G certified corpuls3 Touch, is a three-in-one medical device incorporating a monitor unit, patient box, and defibrillator/pacemaker. This allows for continuous monitoring of a critical patient, from the site of the incident to the hospital, 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," said the Product Manager at Corpuls, Robert Gerlach. "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."
Paired with Skytrac's connectivity capability, the corpuls3 can stream patient data with 99.9% uptime reliability in real time. When cellular connectivity is unavailable, the device can switch to cellular networks when 4G/LTE is in range.
"Iridium Certus mid-band and 4G/LTE cellular connectivity are providing significant improvements to air medical operations," said Regional Business Manager of Skytrac, Luke Billington. "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."
