Designing Bluetooth Medical Devices
Source: iFoundry Systems
Communication between Medical Devices, to date, have been based on ad-hoc, proprietary communication schemes with limited to no interoperability between devices from different manufacturers. With the release of the Bluetooth Health Device Profile (HDP) and the IEEE- 11073 Personal Health Data (PHD) specification, the market for Bluetooth enabled Health Devices is poised for mainstream adoption. There are several design approaches and strategies manufacturers may wish to consider when designing Bluetooth functionality into their devices. This paper briefly describes these considerations.
