Bluegiga provides health device profile for Bluetooth OEM modules
11 February 2009
Finnish company Bluegiga has announced that its OEM Bluetooth modules
are now available with the Bluetooth Health Device Profile (HDP). The
HDP is integrated into Bluegiga's iWRAP firmware, running inside the
Bluegiga module, significantly simplifying and reducing the need for
engineering and testing time for any type of health or medical device.
"Bluegiga's Health Device Bluetooth profile with Bluegiga OEM module
helps device manufacturers to develop wireless features into existing or
new devices with a very limited amount of engineering. Bluegiga modules
are completely supported by Bluegiga meaning that for the OEMs, Bluegiga
is a single point of contact for any kind of development or support,"
said Mr Mikko Savolainen, Customer Service and Product Director at
The Health Device Profile is available for both Bluegiga WT11 Class 1
module and Bluegiga WT12 Class 2 module which use CSR silicon and run
Bluegiga's iWRAP Bluetooth connectivity firmware. Bluegiga is the first
in the world to offer HDP for CSR based silicon. Bluegiga Access Servers
and Access Points will support the HDP Bluetooth Profile later in 2009,
enabling integrators to setup secure and reliable telehealth networks
"The HDP enabled Bluegiga Bluetooth modules are a fantastic way for
OEMs to make sure that the Bluetooth project will meet high quality
standards with the highest possible product reliability," says Tom
Nordman, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Bluegiga.
"We already have significant amount of world-leading health and
medical device manufacturer customers for our OEM modules and access
servers and this new Health Device Profile will also help them to make
the products compatible with other medical device manufacturers."
