AT&T’s new smartwatch will drive transformation in healthcare


AT&T is connecting the first medical wearable certified for its LTE-M low-powered network.
The carrier teamed up with OneLife Technologies Corp, a mobile healthcare software and data-collection company, to develop the OnePulse smartwatch, which is designed with telehealth and remote patient monitoring capabilities.

The OnePulse smartwatch will be available for purchase by healthcare providers in March.

AT&T is also exploring ways to transform the healthcare space beyond connected wearables, making the company a more attractive partner for providers looking for a wide range of digital health solutions.

In January, the carrier landed a partnership with Chicago-based Rush University Medical Center to become the first US hospital to leverage 5G.

Why medical devices need FRAM

n-cypressframinterviewWearable medical devices face a number of challenges and certification to battery life. Low power operation allows these devices operate for longer periods of time.

There are many ways to do this, including efficient memory utilization. One technology that can prove beneficial to wearable medical devices is ferroelectric RAM (FRAM).

A company that has heavily researched and ultimately applied FRAM is Cypress Semiconductor. William Wong (eeNews) talked with Doug Mitchell, Product Marketing Engineer MPS at Cypress, about the technology and how the company is taking advantage of it.

“Our team at Cypress is working on a next-gen update to our FRAM fail-safe storage solutions to build data-protection features into the memory itself, which we hope will encourage product developers and designers to incorporate secure features natively into their devices. Stay tuned for more on this in the near future.”

Wearable biosensors help wound healing process by mimicking skin

wearable-biosensor-for-healing-1-1(Wearable Technology) – Biosensors are devices that combine a biological component with a physiochemical detector to observe and analyze how a chemical substance reacts to the body. Despite great advancements, traditional biosensor still has limitations.

Researchers at Binghamton University have now developed a skin-inspired, open-mesh electromechanical sensor that is capable of monitoring lactate and oxygen on the skin, allowing for long-term, high-performance, real-time wound monitoring in users.
