Exceptional detection and analysis of patient data
Dependable communication and robust design
Reliability without compromiseUsing specific frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) technology within the Wireless Medical Telemetry Service (WMTS) allows ApexPro FH telemetry to minimize the potential for interference, giving you accurate patient information you can depend on, all while providing you with the flexibility to meet your telemetry demands.
Durability is built inProven to withstand multiple drops from up to four feet and an IPX rating of 7, the ApexPro telemetry system is built to handle the demands of clinical environments.
Centralized and decentralized monitoringThe ApexPro FH telemetry system effectively supports centralized or decentralized monitoring approaches. Because telemetry data is accessible enterprise-wide, patients can move throughout the organization while being monitored. Nurses are able to focus on patient care with the confidence that their patients are receiving continuous, quality monitoring.
Scale seamlesslyOffering exceptional scalability, the ApexPro telemetry system uses a bi-directional, access point-based infrastructure that offers an expansive and scalable telemetry option designed to support large healthcare enterprises—with coverage up to 1.2 million square feet and support of up to 640 patients.
Why WMTS instead of Wi-Fi?
According to the American Society for Health Care Engineering (ASHE) WMTS (Wireless Medical Telemetry Service) User Information Guide (V 10.1 December 2016) in the chapter titled "Why use WMTS?" considerations for use of WMTS spectrum (i.e., 608-614, 1395-1400, and 1427-1433 MHz) include:
- This is the only designated frequency spectrum for medical telemetry systems
- You are protected from interference due to other wireless devices
- There are comparatively fewer interference sources
- Both the FCC and FDA encourage use of WMTS
- Frequencies are coordinated to ensure interference-free operation
