Intel Plans Wireless Blood Pressure Monitors

Health and medical-related uses for Bluetooth and wireless communications technology have manufacturers including IBM, Motorola, Nonin Medical, Phillips Electronics, and Welch Allyn joining forces to create and ratify a new Bluetooth Medical Device Profile. Using the new industry standard, blood pressure monitors, exercise equipment, and other health and medical devices will connect wirelessly to Bluetooth enabled PCs or cell phones, thus enabling immediate reception of medical information by doctors or fitness coaches anywhere in the world. The proposed profile, which will be compatible with all current Bluetooth technology versions, will be available in the first half of 2007.
