Athena GTX® is continually seeking to expand the wireless monitoring options available to medical emergency personnel by developing products that improve patient care from point of injury through treatment with availability to monitor from one to multiple patients simultaneously.
The Wi-MED™ program has led to the development and manufacturing of two FDA cleared wireless medical monitoring devices (WVSM® and mini-Medic®). This program recently completed an extensive development focused on distributed sensing, wireless connectivity and data integration for mass casualties. The basic building block of the program was the development of the syncing platform called Wi-Sync™ which allows numerous peripheral monitoring and therapeutic treatment devices to be wirelessly linked together, controlled and provide seamless data integration. Peripheral devices, or WiPDs™, were directed at both current FDA measurements and more investigational devices. Wi-MED™ has continued over multiple years with multiple million dollars invested with the goal of improvements in point of injury care through to definitive care. Spin off technologies and capabilities continue to be leveraged and put through to development for both military and civilian markets.
The Wi-Sync™ is an ultra portable and lightweight hand held computer that represents the future of highly linked wireless medicine.
Wi-Sync™ allows for intra-device communication and receives, displays and saves data from all of our current and future wireless products including the WVSM®, mini-Medic®, Wi-MED™ and Dogbone™. It also has the capability to communicate with alternative wireless products from other companies and control other devices such as infusion pumps, respirators and ventilators providing the device codes are embedded in the device.
It also has the ability to send and receive e-mail, is field updateable, and provides the ability to print and display medical information on a multitude of patients simultaneously.
Note: the FDA is currently establishing policy with regard to wireless communication and linking devices.
The Wi-Cap™ is a highly mobile patient-worn waveform capnography device for individual or simultaneous measurement of SpO2, respiration, heart rate, and CO2. It is wirelessly-enabled for multipatient connectivity.
The mini-V™ simultaneously measures wrist blood pressure, SpO2, respiratory rate, heart rate complexity (HRC), heart rate variability (HRV), pulse rate (SpO2 signal source) or heart rate (ECG source). The mini-V™ provides display capability and wirelessly communicates vital signs data to the Wi-Sync™ or a PC.
Dogbone™ / Wi-Hawk™
The Dogbone™ (military)/Wi-Hawk™ (civilian) is a wireless system comprised of three units: patch, receiver/relay and data receiver, developed as a physiological status monitoring package for training and also estimates fatigue and work load.
It will record physiological state data in non-traditional locations in a non-traditional manner. Sensing will be focused on measuring simple vital signs while tracking autonomic nervous system (ANS) stability.
Hammerhead™ is an underwater vital signs training monitor used to ensure the safety of military divers. Vital signs data is wirelessly transmitted through the water to instructors and medics who are observing the exercise.
