Closer To The Patient Thanks To Secure Mobile Solutions

Projects of the Federal Ministry of Economics and technology provide new mobile IT applications for the health economy value added for the patients create in Rostock: that is the stated goal of the deployment of mobile solutions in the health care industry. Great potential lies in the combination of IT and health. In the foreground are the reduction of costs and reducing the susceptibility of processes. In addition allow mobile solutions in rural or sparsely populated regions increasing the quality of medical care. These objectives are implemented in the developments of the VitBIT SimoBIT-funded projects, Med-on-@ix and OPAL health.

On the SimoBIT-talk in the framework of the 18 market square they today presented health of BioCon Valley’s project office in Rostock its innovative mobile solutions. The Federal Ministry of Economics and technology promotes the development of secure mobile IT applications especially in the health sector with SimoBIT. Just in this industry comes the themes Security and privacy important to. We are pleased that the projects here their new solutions can present important location Rostock where for the development of medical technologies. \”Expect everyone to go a big step toward more cooperation on the way into the networked medical future\”, Dr. Michael Zinke says of the Federal Ministry of Economics and technology (BMWi). In addition to presentations by representatives of the BioCon Valley GmbH, the IHK Rostock and the SimoBIT research, the individual projects clearly demonstrated their developments.

Med-on-@IX has built a tele-emergency medical system, from which the patient due to the better and faster availability of highly competent notarztlichen help of the Telenotzartes to benefit. The shortage of doctors is increasingly noticeable especially in underdeveloped and rural areas. Here can thanks to the new system, that is, optimized usage processes already in trial use in the Aachen region and therefore emergency operations more economical be made. VitBIT creates new mobile solutions for the ambulatory care services.

Suitable to the situation the location of the sound processor on the head is balanced perfectly. An effective noise cancellation, an effective feedback management, as well as a reduction in wind noise allow listening and understanding even in the most challenging acoustic environment. The datalogging function ensures optimal success in the fine tuning. Innovative wireless accessories to connect to technical devices and loud conversation situations the new Baha sound processor is trend-setting also by its unique capabilities to the wireless connection with various wireless devices. The cochlear 2.4 GHz technology allows a direct connection to the wireless signal without receiver units registered to the neck.

Patients therefore are not restricted in their freedom of movement and can wireless transmission units, such as the mini microphone, the TV streamer, the Phone clip, or even a remote control to use for the sound processor. “All this of course with excellent sound quality, lip-sync and free from interference” Frederec Lau stressed. The user can move freely; everything is very comfortable and at the same time very discreet.” Gentler cosmetically appealing, early and effective connections operate standards puts the cochlear Baha 4 last but not least with the corresponding cochlear Baha BI300 system implant, as well as with the DermLock snap coupling (BA400). The implant has a unique textured surface. It provides an early and very stable connection with the skull. And as the only bone-anchored links the DermLock snap coupling connects hydroxyapatit-coated surface is excellently with the soft tissue. Thanks to its unique DermLock technology and its improved form integrates the abutment in soft tissue and stabilized so their environment.

This allows a fast healing, as well as a timely adaptation from two Weeks after implantation. The operation is less invasive, thanks to these components, and she can expect at the same time better cosmetic results. Through intensive research and development work, as well as through a variety of innovative approaches we succeeded, the Baha 4 new technological standards for bone anchored hearing system with system”, so Frederec Lau concluded.
