Wireless Healthcare SIG

The Wireless Healthcare SIG provides opportunities to bring together Cambridge Wireless members and others, nationally or internationally, who have an interest in the use of wireless technologies in healthcare related applications. We organise events and encourage networking. The SIG is intended for anyone from the wireless technology or medical devices communities interested in the convergence of these technology applications and markets.

Trends in demographics and technology mean that the healthcare sector is of wide interest to small and large companies developing wireless enabled devices, applications or services. There is an increasing need for devices to allow for user mobility and for improved access to information within the healthcare sector. The ability to bring companies, policy makers and users together at our events can act as a catalyst for partnerships or collaborative research and development that lead to stronger offerings and better coverage of the markets.

SIG members' activities include:

  • products and services
  • hardware and software
  • technology (cellular, RFID, Bluetooth, Wifi, Wimax,etc)
  • applications (remote monitoring/telecare, telehealth, patient records management)
