This just in: QNX will demonstrate a new software reference design for medical devices this week at the Medical Design & Manufacturing West conference in Anaheim.
The reference design, which is built on the QNX Neutrino RTOS, features a human machine interface (HMI) based on the Qt application framework and demonstrates connectivity to blood pressure monitors, weight scales, pulse oximeters, and other medical devices.
Here is a screen capture of the reference design showing blood pressure, pulse rate, and other information:
The reference design supports the Bluetooth Health Device Profile, which is suited for medical applications in which data is relayed from the local device, such as a pulse oximeter, to a mobile phone or PC. The reference design also supports remote device connectivity with a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.
Here is another screen capture demonstrating the video-conference capabilities of the new design:
