ZAO Device Manages Health Data from Various Devices

Sensaris releases ZAO, an all-in-one biomedical device for m-health applications.

ZAO is a all-in-one biomedical device for mHealth, disaster relief, wireless hospitals or innovative homecare uses. It communicates with mobile phones, tablets or access points and leverages cloud technologies for unprecedented applications. In a single package the following functions are provided:

- Pulse oximeter

- Blood pressure monitor

- Thermometer

- Glucometer interface

- With a WiFi module

To use ZAO, a doctor, a nurse or even a patient selects the function to be used and then starts measurements . Thanks to mobile and web based applications, ZAO displays the data either just locally or sends it securely to a distant server.

WHY AN ALL-IN-ONE DEVICE?

Working with doctors and nurses over the last 10 years, Sensaris realized that providing wireless devices was not enough. They needed a single wireless unit to perform essential and vital basic measurements: oxygen saturation, heart rate, body temperature, blood pressure, blood glucose. Something that like a stethoscope they can always carry, a device which fits in a pocket. Small size, ease of use and ruggedness are crucial for telemedicine applications.

Patients also told us that instead of having to learn to operate a variety of devices they wanted a simple to use, reliable unit compatible with their phones, internet gateways or TVs.

So with the help of mHealth specialists and ER doctors we took the various stages of ZAO through tough field testing and we are now proud to introduce the result of this team effort.

WHY MOBILE DEVICES AND INTERNET CONNECTIVITY?

We could have added a screen on ZAO to simply give results directly on it. But we chose not to because we strongly believe that a lot of applications can be developed around wireless technologies and networks. It is all about seamless experience and users using different interfaces through the day: phones, tablets, PCs, TVs. ZAO delivers vital information in real time at the point of care no matter when or where.

Two way communication over IP also provides field users with instant access to expertise. Moving data rather than patients is always more efficient.

WHY WIFI TECHNOLOGY?

The patent pending ZAO is the first device with 5 key healthcare functions compatible with both Android and iOS based devices (even satellite phones for remote area telemedicine).

Connectivity to plug computers enable easy deployment and connectivity to hospital Ethernet or WLAN networks.

Entreprise level security and data encryption.

Compatible with mobile broadband access for disaster emergency response.

Interoperability with existing health systems through IEEE 11073 data transcoding.

Sensaris, a company out of Crolles, France, has released a device to help track and share important health data from commonly used diagnostic devices. The ZAO includes a pulse oximeter, blood pressure cuff, and a thermometer, and can also accept readings from a glucometer. Data is stored on a removable memory card and can be shared via WiFi automatically with an app available for both iOS and Android.

Using the phone’s 3G connection, the app can pass on readings stored on it to an online server for review by a physician.

A few tech specs:

Processor: TI MSP430

Battery: 3.7 V Lithium ion battery rechargeable via mini USB connector

Storage: 2GB SD Card

Data management: Data can be stored locally or send to a distant server. Data can be exported in a CSV or RSS format
