Bluegiga Provides Health Device Profile for its Bluetooth OEM Modules


    - Bluegiga's OEM Bluetooth Module With Health Device Profile Enables Simple and Safe Integration of

Wireless Connectivity for Health and Medical Devices

    Bluegiga announced today that its OEM Bluetooth modules are now available with Bluetooth Health Device

Profile (HDP). The Health Device profile is integrated into Bluegiga's iWRAP firmware, running inside the

Bluegiga module, significantly simplifying and reducing the need for engineering and testing time for any type

of health or medical device.

    "Bluegiga's Health Device Bluetooth profile with Bluegiga OEM module helps device manufacturer to

develop wireless features into existing or new devices with very limited amount of engineering. Bluegiga

modules are completely supported by Bluegiga meaning that for the OEMs, Bluegiga is a single point of

contact for any kind of development or support," comments Mr. Mikko Savolainen, Customer Service and

Product Director at Bluegiga Technologies.

    The Health Device Profile is available for both Bluegiga WT11 Class 1 module and Bluegiga WT12 Class 2

module which use CSR silicon and run Bluegiga's iWRAP Bluetooth connectivity firmware. Bluegiga is the

first in the world to offer HDP for CSR based silicon. Bluegiga Access Servers and Access Points will support

the HDP Bluetooth Profile later in 2009, enabling integrators to setup secure and reliable telehealth networks

utilizing Bluetooth.

    "The HDP enabled Bluegiga Bluetooth modules are a fantastic way for OEMs to make sure that the

Bluetooth project will meet high quality standards with the highest possible product reliability," says Tom

Nordman, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Bluegiga. "We already have significant amount of

world leading Health and Medical device manufacturer customers for our OEM modules and Access Servers

and this new Health Device Profile will also help them to make the products compatible with other medical

device manufacturers."

    The Health Device Profile is now available for testing and development purposes. More information:
