AirStrip Technologies is a software development company located in San Antonio, Texas. The company develops mobile applications that enable medical practitioners to view patient data in near-real time and displayed on a smart phone or tablet. This frees doctors from being tied down to a local network, as the data is transmitted over the Internet (either via the cellular network or Wi-Fi). Their first product was AirStrip OB, which provides obstetricians and nurse midwives with the ability to view fetal-monitoring waveforms, such as contractions and fetal heart rate. Later, the company introduced AirStrip CARDIOLOGY for cardiac units and AirStrip PATIENT MONITORING for critical care.

Sotera Wireless  has developed the first continuous non-invasive blood pressure monitoring device, which also captures all vital signs. Its product, the VisiMobile System has received 510(k) clearance from FDA and the company is commencing sales to hospitals nationwide. The ViSi Mobile System, as approved, uses WiFi (802.11) wireless technology for transmission of patients' vital signs, keeping hospital clinicians connected to their patients, whether patients are in bed or up and moving around.

Proteus Digital Health  has created an integrating wearable and ingestible sensor technology to detect patient's medication intake and physiologic data. Its digital health feedback system stores information in a secure database accessible from a variety of devices. The company received 510(k) clearance for its patient-powered system in July.

MD+DI has also released the list of the top 10 Manufacturer of the Year finalists this year.  Check out these other noteworthy MedTech companies here.
