Innodisk unveils uncompromising medical AIoT offering

PRESS RELEASE

Taipei – April 24, 2019 – Medical technology is one of the fields where AI can bring revolutionizing breakthroughs for diagnostics, patient care, and emergency rooms. AI excels at working through enormous data sets and can draw from experiences much wider than any single doctor. But this sophisticated technology requires sufficient computational powers, and this is where the Innodisk solution excels.

Innodisk’s memory solution includes a diverse portfolio of industrial-grade DRAM modules that comes with guaranteed long-term supply. Other than high-performance DDR4 modules, DDR2 and DDR3 solutions are also available in the same robust form factors. For extreme cases, conformal coating and anti-sulfuration measures are available to further protect the memory module.

Innodisk has ample experience in providing storage solutions to the medical sector. For instance, when designing an MR or CR systems, it is necessary to factor in electromagnetic interference. A special circuit design with purpose-built firmware algorithms is necessary and Innodisk has successfully customized modules with anti-magnetic properties as well as with rigid data security measures for medical devices. Innodisk can provide SSDs that offer extensive endurance and the robustness required of IoT devices in a medical setting.

One of the challenges of AIoT is keeping tabs on the many devices involved in the system. In one such case, Innodisk modified the cloud-based management tool iCAP to not only monitor the onboard component lifespan and status, but also that of the batteries in the various portable devices used at the hospital. This way, all devices are kept under one umbrella that is easily accessed through any computer, phone or tablet with a compatible browser.

Another aspect of adding devices is the need for adding additional ways of communication between the devices themselves. This is easily achievable through Innodisk’s expansion cards. This way, medical devices can easily add new ports that offer additional LAN, display, PoE, USB capabilities.

DISABILITY TECH ACCELERATOR REMARKABLE UNVEILS 7 NEW STARTUPS

sYDNEY, Australia – One of the largest under-served global markets you’ve possibly never thought of is disability, and leading disability tech accelerator, Remarkable, has just launched its fourth cohort with 7 startups creating technology for the benefit of people with disability.

From startups using AI to teach children with dyslexia to read, to others using virtual reality to take physically disabled people on virtual excursions, these startups are doing more than just creating tech to make life that little bit easier – they are creating technology to make life possible.

“We’re excited to welcome this latest cohort. There is great diversity in the startups and each of the founders have a deep desire to make a difference in the lives of people with disabilities,” said Pete Horsley, founder of Remarkable.

“Applications came from Australia and across the globe – including Azerbaijan, Israel, Ghana, Brazil and Portugal, however we are really proud of the start-ups who were selected.”

The Cohort 4 Startups are:

  • Bookbot empowering those with learning disabilities to become confident, independent learners through a reading assistant app.
  • JobMatcher – using predictive artificial intelligence to match the most relevant positions for each job seeker, particularly tackling the low employment rates for people with disability.
  • NomadVR – bringing highly stimulating virtual reality experiences to empower anyone without the means to go outside with the ability to do so much more.
  • Our Care Journal is an app created with carers for carers, offering a way to organise everyday care needs, find services, communicate with others and arrange important information.
  • PolySpine is a 3D manufactured customised trunk and head support system that enables people with physical disability to participate in various recreational and rehabilitation activities.
  • sameview – a trusted online platform for easier, and better disability care coordination.
  • Spokle – a speech therapy app in your pocket that provides practical, family-centred communication strategies to support children with communication disorders.

Since its inception in March 2016, Remarkable has worked with 20 startups to make a positive impact in the lives of people with disabilities. They have seen 82 full-time equivalent jobs created through the startups, and 2,517 customers with a disability served.
