Check out this video of Freescale's Mickael Viot demonstrating the new medical reference design from QNX Software Systems. As I've mentioned in previous posts, device connectivity is a key feature of the reference design. And indeed, Mickael demonstrates how the reference design can communicate with pulse oximeters, blood pressure cuffs, and other Continua Certified medical devices.
If you look under the hood of this reference design, you'll find the QNX Neutrino RTOS, a user interface based on the Qt framework, and a Freescale imx51 processor based on an ARM Cortex-A8 core. To communicate with medical devices, the reference design uses the Bluetooth Health Device Profile.
