Fujitsu Phone Designed for Healthcare

Fujitsu is beginning to preview a new type of phone that allows users to collect and share their own medical data. The prototype device, which uses Bluetooth technology to let people share their data, has already been certified by one major health care organization.

At the CEATEC (Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies) conference, which started Oct. 5 in Japan, Fujitsu unveiled the first prototype of this health care phone. The company also announced that the device has been certified by the Continua Health Alliance.

Continua is a nonprofit coalition of more than 200 companies in health care and technology that work toward interoperability of medical devices for personal health care. The Fujitsu handset received Continua certification on Sept. 30 and will be available exclusively in Japan this fall as part of NTT Docomo’s Prime series, according to Fujitsu spokesperson Adam Blankenship.
