MindTree Introduces Bluetooth Health Device Solution on Android Platform

October 15, 2009 - Bangalore, INDIA: MindTree Ltd. (NSE: MINDTREE), a global IT Solutions Company and a leading provider of Bluetooth Intellectual Property (IP) solutions, today announced the launch of its Bluetooth health device solution on the Android platform. The solution, which was successfully demonstrated on the Google G1 Android Phone at the Continua Health Alliance Fall Summit held in Boston from October 5-9, 2009, is designed to provide seamless interoperability among personal healthcare devices, thereby empowering individuals to connect with their healthcare administrators real-time.

The Continua device solution consists of MindTree's qualified Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR stack including eL2CAP, Multi-Channel Adaptation Protocol (MCAP) and Health Device Profile (HDP), integrated with IEEE - 11073 layers ported onto the Android platform on a Google G1 developer phone. In the demonstration, the health device solution on Google G1 Android Phone interoperated with a Continua-Certified pulse oximeter from Nonin Medical. The oxygen saturation levels and heart beat readings gathered by the pulse oximeter are transferred wirelessly over Bluetooth to the G1 mobile phone which then displays these readings. The readings can be stored for future reference or as a further application can be uploaded onto the Internet to an Electronic Health Record (EHR).
