ApexPro FH Telemetry System

ApexPro FH telemetry offers an expansive and scalable telemetry option designed to support large healthcare enterprises. Relevant clinical intelligence helps caregivers respond to critical situations faster and work more productively.


ApexPro FH telemetry relies on an exceptional, bi-directional networking infrastructure operating in the Wireless Medical Telemetry Service (WMTS) spectrum for dependable communication of vital patient information across the continuum of care. An access point-based, frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) infrastructure provides you with the capacity and flexibility to help meet your telemetry demands for centralized or decentralized monitoring.

Exceptional detection and analysis of patient data

ApexPro FH telemetry uses the EK-Pro clinical algorithm, which processes and analyzes up to five independent, simultaneous ECG leads for advanced arrhythmia monitoring and ST segment changes. Plus, an innovative Smart Leads Fail feature ensures monitoring and algorithm analysis are uninterrupted in the event of an electrode failure.

Dependable communication and robust design

  • Reliability without compromise

    Using 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 in

    Proven 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 monitoring

    The 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 seamlessly

    Offering 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
