Partner Update: RDT Completes Successful African Study with Tempus Pro
06 March 2014, SunTech Medical partner, Remote Diagnostics Technologies Ltd (RDT), recently collaborated with International SOS, a leading medical and travel security services company, to demonstrate the Tempus Pro vital signs monitor operating in real life situations under rugged and austere conditions. The study was successfully performed over a six-week period in Algeria and Nigeria.
Tempus Pro is light enough to carry to the patient, small enough to hold in one hand and rugged enough to deploy in any situation. It incorporates all the integrated features and capabilities expected in vital signs monitors, including SunTech Medical Advantage non-invasive blood pressure utilizing our unparalleled Transport Motion Tolerant Technology (TMT). The Tempus Pro also easily documents and shares patient data electronically to ensure that care providers have accurate information on patient injuries, therapies, trending vital signs, and drugs and fluids that can then be handed over, or sent ahead via ReachBak over various communication platforms, including GSM (3G), GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, Ethernet and available VSAT facilities.
“Initially, participants were slightly skeptical of the idea of telemedicine,” observed Arnaud Derossi of International SOS. “However, they were quickly won over by the Tempus Pro. By the end of the six-week period, they were extremely positive about the possibilities it offers. The key to the unit’s success is that it is a fully functional, hospital-grade vital signs monitor. On top of that, it offers very useful communications facilities.”
“We have been working with SunTech Medical for many years and on various products. The successful demonstration with International SOS in Algeria and Nigeria over the 6 week period further highlights the market leading technology available from RDT and SunTech Medical that has gone in to the development of Tempus Pro. We are very pleased with the outcome of the study and with SunTech’s non-invasive blood pressure solutions” says Mark Williams, RDT’s Integration and Applications Manager.
