Lantronix Supports MIC in Development of Sickbay IoT Solution

Enable Secure, Remote Patient Monitoring

Today, most non-networked medical devices, such as ventilators, pulse oximeters, anesthesia machines and other patient monitoring devices, only provide information at the bedside. Even though they have limited (or no) data storage, these devices have serial ports capable of sending data to other downstream systems. To accomplish this goal, MIC needed secure connectivity between a major manufacturer’s switch devices and the patients’ bedside monitors.

“Lantronix’s xDirect Server provides the secure, remote connectivity needed to share Sickbay’s bedside information with virtual command centers.”
