Invsat Announce Initiative with TeleMedic Systems

Tuesday, June 25, 2002
Invsat Limited, the VSAT and systems integration subsidiary of Inmarsat Ventures plc, has announced details of an initiative with London-based TeleMedic Systems, a supplier of remote telemedicine diagnostics. The aim is to speed up the delivery of emergency medical care using cutting-edge communications technology that supports TeleMedic Systems technical implementation. Central to this initiative will be VitalLink 1200 - a compact, lightweight system allowing monitoring of heart rate, blood pressure, blood oxygenation, temperature and electrocardiogram. These parameters are automatically transmitted by a satellite or terrestrial link, whichever communication is best adapted to the geographical site of the device. Announcing the initiative at the International E-health Conference in Cardiff, Andrew Ruck, Invsat’s director of sales and marketing said, "Invsat’s core strengths lie in the provision of communications systems integration and satellite communications in remote locations and at sea, so a move into the provision of support for the telemedicine field is a natural step for us. VitalLink 1200 is an enhanced emergency monitoring medical system and we are delighted to be working with TeleMedic Systems to offer a wireless device that is not only compact and robust, but one that could mean the difference between life and death."
