ZTE released a new mHealth product at CeBIT 2016 in Hanover, Germany this week (14 February) in the shape of all-in-one physical examination terminals for both professional and home use.
The company said the product connects the human body with devices using IoT technology and provides precise medical care in order to prevent chronic diseases which are currently increasing in an aging population.
The ZTE self-developed health terminal is not only designed to be a multi-parameter instrument to collect health data, but it also acts as a ‘family doctor’. It has integrated functions for blood pressure, ECG, blood oxygen saturation, routine urine tests and more, and actively collaborates with back-end cloud.
By applying the ‘cloud and devices’ mode of IoT, the device helps users compare their health data, and contributes to generate electronic health records for the elderly as well as their families. Doctors and families will be able to upload their health information through wireless transmission to the cloud.
Doctors, hospitals and citizens could access the cloud through specific interfaces or mobile applications, and acquire their specific healthcare management services, such as living habits assessment and remote diagnosis.
The device fits various use case scenarios and suits different communities, including urban communities and rural families. Users can be general practitioners, personal doctors or the general population. Urban residents can interact with community doctors through the terminal and receive online health services such as prescriptions and medical consulting at home.
As for rural residents, they can more swiftly receive remote diagnosis and treatment solutions from advanced medical institutions. The terminal can also provide real-time medical care for residential patients in order to understand their health dynamics, especially for post-operative rehabilitation, patients with chronic diseases and people in poor health.
The device has obtained international certification and license for medical instrument production and sales. Compared with traditional medical testing instruments, ZTE said its health terminal is light, easy to carry and can instantly provide personalised instructions and health guides to its users.
Compared with existing electronic devices with similar functions, the ZTE claimed its health terminal provides more accurate and stable measurement results and quicker transmission. The ZTE all-in-one physical examination terminal has already served over 3 million people in China and is gaining favour and attention from both domestic and overseas clients, according to the company.
