Toumaz Technology Limited, the leading provider of ultra-low power wireless infrastructure for body monitoring solutions, announces that it has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with health and wellness group Healthe International Pte Ltd to jointly develop solutions for sports medicine and rehabilitation therapy applications. The agreement marks the start of a commercial collaboration to trial solutions based on Sensium(TM)-enabled ultra small size body-worn wireless monitors and Healthe’s database for elite athletes, Healthe Sport. Toumaz’s Sensium sensor interface and transceiver platform enables intelligent, ultra-low power wireless monitoring of multiple vital signs – including ECG heart rate, body temperature, respiration and activity level – in real-time, via standard PDAs, cellphones, laptops and PCs.
Headquartered in Singapore, Healthe Group is an international organisation that provides a wide range of health and wellness solutions, from the largest privately-owned private hospital network in Australia, to state-of-the-art sports performance database systems, corporate health and wellness programmes and individual personal health records. Health Sport, the company’s specialised sports healthcare and research system, is designed to help accredited doctors and sports physicians share athlete medical records and clinical data, and manage the condition of elite sportsmen and women. The system, which is based on Oracle’s Healthcare Transaction Base (HTB), is currently being used by the Australian Olympic Team and the company is working closely with other elite sporting organisations to implement the system.
Commenting on the announcement, Ben Thynne, Managing Director of Healthe International, said, “The signing of this LOI is the first step in a very exciting collaboration between our two companies. The potential for Toumaz’s Sensium technology in the sports medicine market is immense, and we look forward to exploring opportunities to combine the strengths of our offerings and delivering a new wave of sports monitoring applications fit for the world’s top athletes.”
“Healthe is an internationally recognised leader in the field of sports healthcare management, and we are delighted to be announcing the start of our commercial relationship,” added Toumaz Technology Co-Founder and COO, Keith Errey. “We see huge opportunities for a combined Sensium and Healthe Sports solution to have a positive impact in areas such as training, sport optimisation and post-operative fitness, and we look forward to working together to bring these solutions to market.”
