Nihon Kohden, AT&T Foundry team up to launch connectivity "travel pack" for health providers

Tuesday 12 February 2019 | 11:38 CET | News
Medical equipment manufacturer Nihon Kohden teamed up with the AT&T Foundry to launch a prototype for a mobile "travel pack" to ensure the uninterrupted capture of patient vitals data. The travel pack device attaches to Nihon Kohden's wearable Life Scope G3 wearable vital sign telemeter. The pack automatically toggles between a hospital's Wi-Fi network and an LTE connection, depending on which signal is stronger in any given location. This ensures hospital staff continues receiving vital signs as the patient moves about the hospital and even outdoors.
