Our own Joshua Topolsky recently visited Qualcomm Life, a new Qualcomm company focused on integrating data from existing medical devices with the cloud. Josh spoke with Don Jones, VP of Qualcomm Life, who showed off how its 2net system wirelessly transmits data from medical devices — in the video, Jones shows off a connected pulse oximeter and blood pressure monitor that send data to a nearby laptop via a 2net transmitter containing cellular and local radios. Qualcomm's goal is to enable hundreds or thousands of devices to connect to the 2net platform, which would allow healthcare professionals and caretakers to see a broader set of health data for individual patients.
