RDT makes maiden voyage as a Philips company at the Monaco Yacht Show

Press release issued 18th September 2018

Remote Diagnostic Technologies (RDT), provider of best-in-class remote medical devices for luxury yachts and the maritime market, is pleased to announce its attendance at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show, taking place from the 26th to the 29th September, 2018. This is the first time RDT will exhibit to a maritime audience since it became a Philips Company in June 2018.

RDT is well-established in the superyacht arena, where its Tempus IC2, a fully integrated telemedicine solution for non-medical experts, is providing remote medical support and unrivaled telemedicine capability on-board hundreds of superyachts worldwide. The acquisition by the global player Philips acts as a significant endorsement of the capabilities of RDT and its Tempus technology and opens up exciting new possibilities to further develop RDT’s portfolio for the superyacht market going forward.

Medical provisioning on-board superyachts is critical in ensuring passengers and crew receive the best possible care and therefore outcomes. Tempus IC2 is a remote medical monitoring device that enables non-medical personnel to deliver care during medical events by connecting them in real-time to a shore based medical expert. The device measures and relays live vital signs from the scene of the incident so that the experts have access to as much information as they would if they were on-board with the patient. This allows them to make well informed remote treatment decisions, ensuring the most appropriate medical care is provided, potentially saving lives, managing cost and often avoiding the need to return to shore.

RDT will be exhibiting in the PRIVA lounge alongside its trusted partner MedAire. Please contact Roland Archdall, Global Head of Yachting to book an appointment to discuss your on-board medical set-up (rarchdall@rdtltd.com).

THE BIG PICTURE….

The big picture

Emergency medical hardware should be flexible enough to evolve with the ever-changing demands of pre-hospital care.  As well as focusing on providing safe patient care, prehospital health providers are increasingly seeing the need to  gather and utilise data more effectively, to measure patient outcomes and improve performance. The increasing demands are often being managed with static or limited resources and with technology that is isolated and non-connected.

The Tempus ALS is a platform that can evolve over time as the requirements and needs of services change. It is a complete system that combines innovative hardware and powerful software to expand the prehospital scope of care wider than ever before.

Its flexible deployment enables emergency medical providers to improve their workflow and positively impact safe patient outcomes with wider clinical, operational and financial advantages delivered to organizations.

If you would like to understand how we can help you drive clinical decision support and better resource utilisation, please come and visit us at two up and coming conferences:

We are ahead of the curve with GDPR

We are ahead of the curve with GDPR

Release date 24th May 2018

GDPR may be the ‘buzz word’ right now, however, the way in which we securely capture, transmit and share sensitive data has always been at the core of our business. Our customer-focused approach means that we are well ahead of the curve when it comes to GDPR and beyond.

All Tempus devices have been designed from the core to capture and securely communicate rich medical data sets. Real-time data is recorded by the Tempus at the point of care either automatically or manually. This is always encrypted and easily shared via authenticated, highly secure channels to medical professionals and clinicians before being stored in a secure encrypted database. All data collected can be de-identified on a scheduled basis, or in response to an individual request at anytime. Patient data is processed only as necessary to protect the vital interests of the patient to enhance the accuracy of medical care and support clinical decisions.

2018 will see the launch of Corsium Suite. This will take our telemedicine capabilities to new levels, enabling unparalleled levels of data to be captured and shared. Real-time two way communication can be viewed and interacted with from any device via a secure web browser. This will deliver benefits on many levels for healthcare professionals and their patients:

Meet increasing demand

• Connect patients & clinicians for better on-scene decision making
• Reduce unnecessary conveyance
• Transport to specialised or primary care

Reduce transfer & handover times

• Key patient physiological and event data is real time
• Optimise management and reduce risk in ambulance queues
• Handover is electronic & seamless

Improve & measure quality of care

• Always get all data which is event synchronised
• Dashboards & over the air device management e.g. code data
• Drive process improvement & clinical governance

Improve workforce well-being

• Ergonomic & human factors advantages

Tempus Pro used for latest Astronaut Recovery

Astronaut Paolo Nespoli’s recovery monitored with Tempus Pro

Release date 15th December 2017

As part of RDT’s collaboration within the ARTES Integrated Applications Programme of the European Space Agency, our Tempus technology has been used during their latest Astronaut recovery, in extremely harsh conditions. Space travel can place enormous pressure on the body and accurate monitoring of vital signs is fundamental during re-acclimatisation once back on earth.

Following copy courtesy of ESA – Stephane Corvaja, 2017*

ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli and his colleagues Randy Bresnik of NASA and Sergei Ryazansky of Roscosmos returned to Earth from the International Space Station on 14 December in their Soyuz MS-05 spacecraft landing at 08:37 GMT.

The ride home from the International Space Station saw the trio brake from 28 800 km/h to a standstill at touchdown in barely three hours.

Paolo completed more than 60 experiments during his ‘VITA’ mission, which stands for Vitality, Innovation, Technology and Ability.

His body was itself an arena for research: his eyes, headaches, sleeping patterns and eating habits were monitored to learn more about how humans adapt to life in space. Temperature recordings, muscle exercises and plenty of blood and saliva samples will add to the picture and prepare humans for missions further from Earth.

Telemedicine Workshops Compositeworks, La Ciotat

TELEMEDICINE WORKSHOPS: Compositeworks, La Ciotat

On the 29th – 30th November 2017, RDT will be partnering with MedAire to deliver 2 workshops hihglighting the importance of telemedicine and trusted medical support during medical emergencies at sea:

Timeline for Survival – 09:30 – 11:30am, 29th November

Our trusted partner MedAire, will be providing insight into the reality of delivering assistance services to the yachting industry in a medical emergency. With years of experience in the field and thousands of real incidents to help illustrate their points, this workshop will provide an understanding of when and why you should call for advice and support, and what to expect when you do. Through understanding the processes and procedures captains and crew are much better placed to make the decisions that they will need to on the ground in an emergency. These can be decisions of life and death in some scenarios. An honest assessment of the capabilities of emergency services at sea often informs decisions around the level of resources and training available in the medical context onboard. Book your place HERE.

Dealing with Cardiopulmonary Disorders including Heart Attacks and Strokes – 09:30 – 11:30am, 30th November

The scope of cardiopulmonary disorders is broad. One end of the scale would cover somebody with high blood pressure and at the other end of the scale there are those with the real possibility of a cardiac arrest happening on board. It is very common for guests and owners to be somewhere on this scale. Certainly these days there are many older people that are on medication for hypertension (chronic high blood pressure), have had minor heart surgery or have suffered ‘mini’ strokes. It is essential that crew know the signs and symptoms involved with these conditions, as well as appropriate care and emergency responses. Experts from MedAire and RDT will cover all aspects of this important topic including lots of real life examples, as well as fictional onboard scenarios, using live data collected by the Tempus IC2, demonstrating the importance of vital signs and careful monitoring of the casualty. Book your place HERE.

 

 

RDT PARTNERSHIP IN ACTION: A ROUND UP OF MEDICA AND METS 

RDT Partnership in Action: A round up of MEDICA & METS

How we operate has enabled us to build a strong team foundation and culture.  We are lucky to have built excellent relationships with customers, partners and suppliers.  This means that we are able to collaborate with them in business as well as at Conferences. This week is one example.

From the 14th – 16th November our Tempus IC Maritime team were at METS in Amsterdam with MedAire in the Superyacht Pavilion. We supported them showcasing the future of onboard medical services.  On Tuesday, 14 November, MedAire were part of the panel discussion, “Navigating outside Western Yachting”.  We had some great conversations with potential and existing clients about the role Telemedicine plays in safeguarding the health and well-being of crew and passengers.

For the whole of this week our Tempus Pro and Tempus ALS teams were in Dusseldorf at Medica. We had an exceptional week with customers from Military and Civilian emergency markets from around the globe, all incredibly impressed with the Tempus ALS monitor/defibrillator and our new Software platform – Corsium Suite. We were able to demonstrate how empowered by data, this gives the most reliable, flexible and simple system possible. It also further strengthened our partnership with our Dutch team, QRS who were all fantastic! They held a large number of key meetings with potential customers throughout each day.

We also had Alistair Grant, our Director of Military Sales presenting at DiMiMED – International Conference on Disaster and Military Medicine which is a key part of Medica. He talked about how our Tempus technology and Corsium Suite supports “the now and future” of Military Medicine. His presentation was extremely well received by all, especially in relation to advanced data and communications capabilities.

This successful week stands testament to the team spirit and customer focus of RDT.

Here is another a few shots from the week.

RDT’s TEMPUS Pro used by the European Space Agency

RDT’s Tempus Proused at an astronaut landing

Remote Diagnostics Technologies (RDT), the high-tech medical device business focused on vital signs monitoring and telemedicine in the pre-hospital care space, is delighted to report that the Space Medicine Office of the European Space Agency (ESA) recently performed an operational evaluation of the Company’s Tempus Pro Monitor (Tempus Pro) during French Astronaut, Thomas Pesquet’s, flight and landing aboard a Soyuz 49S spacecraft as he returned from a six month stay on the International Space Station.

ESA performed a number of tests on the Tempus Pro as it transmitted real-time medical data including patient vitals, medical events and medications administered, as well as ultrasound images, videos, pictures and voice.

ESA concluded that the result of the test was positive, including that use of the monitor was easy in the real operational environment and it allowed fast and easy medical event logging, assessment, intervention and medication tracking.

RDT looks forward to continued collaboration with the ESA as it looks to develop its customer base in the aerospace industry.

Dr. Sergi Vaquer, Flight Surgeon at the European Space Agency commented: “The Tempus Pro was very easy to use in our challenging operational environment and allowed us fast and easy medical event logging and tracking. The monitor is small, light and robust enough to allow our medical professionals to work unimpeded by the equipment.”

Arnaud Runge, project manager at the European Space Agency for the Tempus pro and ALS commented: “We are pleased that the Tempus Pro, developed with the support of ESA’s ARTES applications programme, could be used at an astronaut landing. This is a demanding operational situation and proves the high performing capabilities of this product.”

Graham Murphy, CEO of RDT commented: “We have collaborated with the ESA over a number of years. We are delighted that our continued relationship has resulted in the implementation of our technology during a mission to monitor and assess the wellbeing of astronauts. We look forward to continued partnership”
