Embedded Technology

By Devyn Attwood

Embedded medical systems consist of hardware and software customised for specific functions in medical devices. These technologies allow patients’ health to be monitored and managed frequently each day. For example, sensors extract data on aspects of a patient’s health, such as their heart rate, and send the data to physicians wirelessly for analysis. 

Examples of applications of embedded systems in the medical field include imaging systems such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT), defibrillators, blood pressure monitoring devices, digital flow sensors, foetal heart monitoring machines, and wearable devices.

These systems include microprocessors, digital signal processors (DSP) or converter microcontrollers, memory for data storage, sensors, actuators, and other interfaces. 

Medical grade embedded technologies are constantly being updated to reduce their size, increase their processing power, and incorporate programmed automatic technologies to provide improved treatments and medications for patients. 

Embeddinged medical systems with the Internet of Things (IoT)

Medical systems with embedded Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities can help address shortages of doctors in remote locations. These systems’ operating system interfaces and high-speed processors can expedite diagnosis and treatment times for patients. 

Embedded IoT medical devices can be connected to various hardware items and store patients’ data on the Ccloud to be analysed and used by clinicians, whenever necessary.
