A month ago I wrote a post titled “Hospitals going wireless” and just now when I was doing my daily reading on my GoogleReader, Michael from Medgadget reported that Cambridge Consultants will showcase it’s Wireless Asthma Inhaler prototype @ the Respiratory Drug Delivery Europe conference in Lisbon on 19-22 May 2009.

This Asthma Inhaler

“Combines the IEEE11073 standard and the emerging Bluetooth Medical Device Profile, to link devices wirelessly to cell phone networks and the internet … the company will unveil a ‘connected’ asthma inhaler prototype that wirelessly links patients’ use of the device with their doctor and healthcare support. The protocol seems to have a bright future, thanks to its secure transfer of medical data and its reliance on a single affordable chip, specifically designed for the Vena platform. – Michael, Medgadget
