Delphi Medical Targets OEM Wireless Patient Monitors

Talked with Paul Kowalksi (Business Development for Vital Signs) at Delphi Medical today to get clairification on their strategy and direction.

Delphi Medical  is pursuing an OEM strategy (like their parent) to bring wirelessly connected medical devices (pumps, VSMs, vents) to the home and alternate care markets. The overall solution also includes a wireless PDA and central station for managing devices, alarms and patient data. They're also looking at Bluetooth enabled cell phones to connect to devices.

They've looked at the hospital market (where I think they could leapfrog established vendor's technology) but thought it too penetrated (GE, Philips and Welch Allyn were mentioned).  Maybe they'll meet an OEM customer who needs a solution to support the Universal Bed concept in hospitals.
