New Low-Cost Videophone Brings Expert Healthcare to Consumer Households During Emergencies

Motion Media Technology Announces CareStation™ 110

Wilmington, NC (December 18, 2001) - As the holiday season approaches and the federal government repeats warnings of possible terrorist attacks, the videoconferencing industry continues to work on ways to apply video technology to today's health and security challenges. One of the major issues under discussion is bioterrorism preparedness and response, and how to develop a coordinated strategy to deal with such threats.

According to Dr. Jay Sanders, international telemedicine expert and Consulting Medical Director at Motion Media Technology, "During a bioterrorist attack, front-line healthcare providers and security officials need to be able to instantly connect with national and regional resources who can provide expertise regarding particular pathogens. An immediate response is required to rapidly assess and identify the medical needs of the victims, coordinate the most effective response, and provide specialized care instructions. One of the best technologies to handle such a situation is the data-enabled videophone."

Today, Motion Media Technology announced the CareStation 110, the company's newest videophone designed for remote healthcare. The CareStation 110 is a low-cost, easy-to-use videophone system that can be put to work anywhere there is a standard telephone, telephone line, and television. With nearly all of the 105 million US households containing at least one telephone and one TV, that means telehealth services can be brought to virtually any home or office.

As Easy to Use as a Regular Phone

The CareStation 110 can be used in a variety of remote care applications, from emergency services to routine care via community organizations. The unit is as easy to use as a telephone. A standard television provides large, easy-to-view images. Simple patient controls feature hands-free speaker-phone operation and programmable speed dials. Near and far-end camera controls include zoom in and out.

The CareStation 110 also features automatic data transmission whereby patient information can be sent to healthcare providers from a wide range of medical monitors. Two RS-232 data ports allow the videophone to be connected to EKG monitors, electronic stethoscopes, ECG recorders, and more. This means medical data can be transmitted at the same time as a video call, allowing immediate remote assessment of the patient.

According to Dr. Sanders, "Victims of targeted pathogens have characteristic signs and symptoms that are easily transmitted and identified over a telemedicine network. The large, clear imagery produced by the CareStation makes it an ideal tool for emergency medical services."

Price & Availability

The CareStation 110 is priced starting at $979, quantity one, and is available immediately from Motion Media Technology or through a variety of telehealth service companies and system integrators. Leasing and payment plans are available.
