Description

Portable healthcare devices help monitor vital signs, restart the heart, and look inside the body with ultrasound before the patient is taken to the hospital. NXP's goal is to contribute to home healthcare devices that are easy to use, interoperable and offer diagnostic value so that insurance will cover the cost. This eliminates the need for a hospital visit or stay and reduces healthcare costs.

New medical devices
 
Many consumer medical devices today simply display health monitoring results and leave the interpretation and logging to end users and their doctors. Newer devices feature simple connectivity to log and transmit results automatically. Connectivity is either wired, wireless or combined.
