New Telemedicine Cart Available

LifeBot is presenting their new “Virtual Ambulance Telemedicine Crash Cart System” at HIMSS 12, February 20-23 in Las Vegas along with Hewlett Packard. The “Virtual Ambulance” cart design is multi-versatile and is not only able to handle routine day-to-day procedures but also able to manage unexpected emergencies.

The system features a flashing light system to clear the hallways similar to the way an ambulance clears the street. The cart is the very first Emergency Crash Cart with telemedicine, in other words, the telemedicine cart is a virtual ambulance that may be easily deployed facility-wide.

LifeBot mobile telemedicine carts are the first and only carts designed to transmit live voice video and full patient physiological data. This data is usually acquired by complete physiological monitoring systems that are connected directly to the patient. Physicians when using the LifeBot Slate tablet or Desktop PCs have remote control of the pan, tilt, plus zoom cameras next to the patient.

The same week as HIMSS 12, LifeBot is displaying one of the original DREAMS™ Project Digital Ambulances at the “Gathering of Eagles” meeting to be held in Dallas, Texas February 24-25, 2012. LifeBot acquired the exclusive world-wide rights to key telemedicine technologies including DREAMS™, a $14 million research project that built the first Digital Telemedicine Ambulances. The DREAMS project was the brain child of Texas surgeon Dr. James “Red” Duke, Jr. and was funded by TATRC and the U.S. Army Medical Research and Material Command.

LifeBot CEO Roger Health said, “Entire states and nations internationally want to use these advanced systems now to save lives, reduce workloads, reduce risks, and reduce healthcare costs. So far, most of the technology has focused on “Community Paramedicine” and the delivery of primary care using mobile telemedicine. Now, both the cart and ambulance systems have merged to form one uniform comprehensive system to meet both clinical and pre-hospital needs.”
