TZ Medical Aera CT device with embedded Cinterion M2M technology takes top honors in healthcare category
MUNICH, , July 11, 2012 - Cinterion, Gemalto’s (Euronext NL 0000400653 GTO) machine-to-machine (M2M) business segment and the global leader in cellular M2M communication technology, and TZ Medical, a leading manufacturer of medical products, today announced jointly winning Connected World Magazine’s prestigious Gold Value Chain Award for Aera CT™, a lightweight and cost effective mHealth heart arrhythmia monitoring device. The Value Chain Awards honor the most successful corporate adopters of M2M technology and the solution providers that make their success possible.
 
TZ Medical’s Aera CT device improves the ability to detect heart arrhythmias during normal day-to-day activities, and over long periods of time. Designed for ease-of-use and comfort for patients, the device uses a Cinterion M2M module to enable the Aera CT device to communicate data via cellular networks and the Internet. TZ Medical’s solution provides patients and their physicians with 24/7 monitoring and improved detection and visibility of irregular heart rhythms. Authorized caregivers can securely log-on and view patient data from anywhere in the world and with total privacy protection, to determine effective treatment approaches.
 
The 2012 winners represent successful implementations in home health, education, emergency response, tracking, and even the prevention of distracted driving. This is a great illustration as to how M2M technology and connected devices can be relied upon to not only make our lives more convenient and efficient, but much safer and responsible,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Connected World. “Congratulations to all of the individuals and companies honored.”
 
PricewaterhouseCoopers estimates that wireless remote diagnostic services will generate $3.4 billion in revenues worldwide by 2017, making up 15 percent of the global mHealth market(1),” said Norbert Muhrer, Senior Vice President of Cinterion M2M at Gemalto. “The award-winning Aera CT solution demonstrates how secure and reliable Cinterion M2M technology can contribute to drive efficiency gains and growth in the mHealth services sector.”
