AmbiCom, a developer of wireless devices for the healthcare and automotive industry, received $200,000 for the purchase of a new wireless gadget for defibrillator communication.
According to reports, the company announced on January 11th that, “a $200,000 order for wireless communication devices to be used for defibrillators developed and marketed by a major company in the medical technology industry […] with delivery expected to take place in the second quarter of 2013.” While the customer is unknown, it was reported that AmbiCom has done business with the company before, with orders exceeding $1,000,000.
Wireless technologies are beginning to reshape products throughout major industries, but healthcare and medical services are truly experiencing major innovations. And as the landscape of the healthcare market in the United States is preparing for a major change, more companies are modifying their business plans, strategies, and product development plans to supply often entirely new demands. As technology continues to allow doctors to provide types of care that may not have existed in the past, companies like AmbiCom are likely to start up and obtain significant sales numbers.
Headquartered in Milpitas, California, AmbiCom’s “wireless modules and devices are based on the Company's innovative application software for both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies.”
According to the company, it services and works with an impressive list of suppliers for much of its healthcare products. Some of these include Siemens, Roche, Care Fusion, Drager, and Zoll. For its automotive side, the company utilizes French company, Webdyn. AmbiCom also provides industrial products with Bosch, and has recently broken into the casino and gaming industry, selling products to Tekpro and VideoKing.
