Improving and saving lives with wireless technologies

Improving and saving lives with wireless technologies

Published: 22nd August 2016

The Internet of Things is set to have a significant impact in the medical sector. Wireless technology in medicine will enable remote patient monitoring, with dosages being monitored and administered in real-time based on up-to-the minute needs. The risk of infection in sterile operating environments will also be reduced by getting rid of cables and wires.

Such developments will have a huge impact on quality of life for patients. Take, for example, the case of patients with diabetes. Currently they may need to travel to clinic to have their blood sugar monitored to make sure that their insulin dosage is correct. With developments in wireless technology, these patients will be able to have their levels monitored remotely, with the diabetic pump connecting via Bluetooth to a smartphone which would then transmit the results to the patient’s doctor. Insulin levels could then be adjusted remotely, without the need to travel to see a doctor.

Wireless technologies in medicine today

LitePoint technology verifies and calibrates the most used technologies in wireless medical and continues to develop test solutions for new wireless technologies.

Bluetooth & Bluetooth LE – Used for connecting medical devices to smart devices and transmitting data over short distances

NFC – Used for taking patient readings from a medical device to a tablet or hand-held data collection device

Wi-Fi – The Wi-Fi standard 802.11ac, which enables high-bandwidth devices to go wireless, could allow doctors to run an electrocardiogram wirelessly or connect the EKG machine to the Internet

Measuring the Control Loop Response of a Power Supply with an Oscilloscope

Power supplies and voltage regulators are typically designed to maintain a constant voltage over a particular current range. The supply should respond quickly to demand changes while maintaining a constant output, without excessive ringing or oscillation. To do this, power supplies are essentially amplifiers with a closed feedback loop.
