Inilex (www.inilex.com), an industry-leading developer of telemetry products and services, today launched a machine-to-machine (M2M) software service offering an integrated solution to the challenges faced by developers of M2M solutions. Inilex’s new Software as a Service (SaaS), Apprize™, enables developers to quickly and cost-effectively deploy any type of M2M application using any device, any protocol, over any communications network.
The M2M industry is projected to grow exponentially in the coming years, from approximately $16 billion in 2008 to more than $57 billion by 2014, according to Strategy Analytics. Apprize will help accelerate this growth by offering a limitless M2M software solution that can be implemented across a variety of industries such as telemedicine, energy management, environmental, security and more.
“It takes between four and six supply-chain partners to develop and manage just one M2M solution,” said Vice President of Yankee Group’s Enterprise and SMB Research, Steve Hilton. “Having these multiple partners is not only costly, but also time-consuming. Enterprises that consolidate this process significantly with cloud-based solutions will save time and money by reducing development and deployment for partners on the back-end.”

The FDA has given MedApps, a Scottsdale, Arizona firm, 510(k) market clearance for the firm’s HealthPAL wireless medical device monitor.
HealthPAL automatically collects data from compatible, off-the-shelf, medical monitors using a smart cable or wirelessly via Bluetooth. The data is then transmitted using embedded M2M (GSM) cellular chip (and soon CDMA) technology to be received by HealthCOM, MedApps’ full-featured, web-based portal for health care providers.
About the size of a cell-phone, the HealthPAL is ultra-portable for maximum mobility and its low cost enables remote monitoring to be available to large patient populations. It is considered to be the ultimate in simplicty. While it has buttons for special features and set-up, during daily operation the reading and data transmissions are COMPLETELY automated. The patient does not push any buttons, navigate any screen commands or touch the HealthPAL in any fashion.
HealthPAL is currently approved for use in conjunction with glucose meters, blood pressure monitors, weight scales, pulse oximeters and pedometers. As additional approvals are received, MedApps looks forward to expanding its capabilities to include the recording and transmitting of data from INR monitors, ECG, Peak Flow, CPAP, spirometers, O2 concentrators and more.
