Hardware

As a general principle, SmarKo® Health allows for data collection and analytics from available devices based on ISO/ IEEE 10073. Consequently, multiple physical conditions can be remotely monitored. This makes SmarKo® a flexible solution for clinics and medical experts.

SmarKo® also includes a smart wrist device collecting vital data. Bluetooth technology and an embedded SIM card make the carrying of an additional smart device redundant. Smart power management and a replaceable battery allow 24/7 monitoring at low operating cost. The device includes mechanisms for automatic and manual alerts being sent directly to the doctor.

A wireless charger (Qi standard) with WPS wireless charging for up to seven devices completes the hardware portfolio.

Applications

The SmarKo® Patient App allows patients to enter data about the nature and characteristics of perceived symptoms, to follow their assigned medication plans and to communicate with medical staff via video, audio and texting. Notifications can be sent and received, both manually and automatically. – A special application for doctors provides for the setting of notification thresholds and triggers, design of clinical studies, management of patients’ medical plans, patient monitoring, patient communication and customizable data analytics.

Communication

Patients can communicate with doctors via video, audio and texting in real time. Emergency notifications are sent manually, based on a patient’s perceived health, or automatically from sensors.

Backend

The backend consists of signaling component, SIP server and data storage. The signaling component manages application-internal notifications. The SIP server allows for patient-doctor real-time communication. Patient data are maintained at the data storage and made available to the doctor.
