Holistic Systems Engineering
Internet of Things (IoT) has also gained a foothold in the medical industry in recent years. The steady increase of innovative products is making medical technology “mobile” and allows discreet integration with daily life. IoMT envisions a universal network of medical devices and people that enables, for example, the seamless exchange of health data. The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is often used to remotely monitor health data and to improve adherence. IoMT helps make health care more patient-centered, more effective, and safer: It can enhance quality of life, enable faster and better-targeted therapies, improve care services and result in more cost-effective structures.
For your IoMT project to be successful, you need interdisciplinary know-how and networked systematic thinking. Because IoMT devices are complex systems: Typically, they are autonomous (i.e., battery-operated, networked) and consist of a “wearable” / “body-attached device”, mobile application (Android / iOS), and a connection to the internet cloud. Together with energy efficiency and UX, other essential requirements are secure data transmission, encrypted storage, secure authentication, and differentiated access rights.
In addition, there are regulatory requirements, regulations, standards, certifications, etc. which form a veritable jungle for explorers in medical technology. Only those who observe the regulations right from the start will avoid unnecessary delays and setbacks to launching their product on the market!
konplan will effectively support you in your IoMT development because we have combined all the required knowledge and skills for this under one roof:
- An interdisciplinary, systems-engineering approach that combines electronics, software, and mechanics
- Specific technical know-how in plastic technologies (rapid prototyping, injection molding, etc.), low-power microelectronics, connectivity, battery technologies, sensors (e.g., PPG, temperature, inertial), mobile app technologies, cloud connections, cybersecurity, IEC 60601-1 / -1-2 / -1-11
- Compliant development processes according to ISO 13485, ISO 14971, IEC 62304, and IEC 62366. MDR-compliant (MDR: Medical Device Regulation)
- Know-how in production-oriented development. Our job is not finished with MVP or prototypes. We also develop series-ready products and support you all the way through final production.
