September 2011 - EPIC Diving installs TELEMEDIC SYSTEMS’ VITALLINK3 in support of diving operations.
First U.S. saturation chamber installation of vital signs monitoring system
TAUNTON U.K. – 19 September 2011 – TeleMedic Systems announces the first US installation of the VitalLink3 medical vital signs monitoring system configured for use in a saturation dive chamber onboard The Adams Challenge, a vessel operated by EPIC Diving & Marine Services, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of TETRA Technologies, Inc. (EPIC).
“The unique aspects of saturation dive chamber operations are very similar to providing medical support to astronauts on the International Space Station, even though the divers are only separated from medical professionals by several mm of steel; they are, in fact, nearly as remote as if they were in space,” said TeleMedic Systems CEO, Alasdair MacDonald.
TeleMedic Systems developed the VitalLink3, a unique mobile vital signs monitor, for use in remote applications, including when configured appropriately, hyperbaric chambers. Medical data collected by the VitalLink3 is available to onsite medical technicians, as well as being sent via satellite to the VitalNet. The VitalNet’s secure portal provides medical professionals with access to the real-time data sent by the VitalLink3 anywhere they can get an Internet connection.
“The VitalLink3 has been designed to operate in some of the harshest environments people travel and work in,” said Gerry Buss, COO, TeleMedic Systems. “In such places, robust remote monitoring technology built to hospital standards can be crucial when responding to medical emergencies."
In order to continue leading diving services internationally, it is essential that EPIC remains supportive of the correct and proven new technologies. Telemedicine is the future in remote site medical technology and will assist in EPIC’s care of its most important assets – its people. Bringing together the Commercial diver being treated with the treating physician in real time, reduces errors and moves more rapidly to the critical steps in treatment, improving the care our people receive. We are proud to be the first company in the Americas Region to adopt and provide this new but proven technology.

15 July 2010 - TeleMedic Systems has demonstrated the first Home Health Hub based on its VitalLink technology running on a prototype IP-Set-top box from NXP Semiconductors. This prototype demonstrates ease of use, direct connection from vital signs devices to patient health records via the patient's broadband connection, and display of results on the patient's TV using web techniques. Working with partner Centrihealth, data supplied in this way is shown to support diagnostic and analysis software systems that can assist patient, doctor, care worker and relative, to collaborate in patient care.
November 2009 - VitalLink is in use within HM Prison service and is expected to reduce the Escort and Bed-watch budgets, improve accuracy in record keeping, and comply with governance requirements. As well as automatically updating the EPR, VitalLink can also send real-time diagnostic data to a remote clinician, who can then better support the local medical personnel. See TPP Newsletter No. 41 for further information.
9 October 2009 - TeleMedic Systems has joined the DAP Forum's 2nd Assisted Living programme, entitled "Anytime Anywhere" designed to provide care and health technology to patients wherever they happen to be.
