“Our customers have relayed many stories of how swyMed’s technology has helped them provide quality care in crisis situations as well as in community care programs,” said Stefano Migliorisi, CEO of swyMed. “Faced with COVID 19 social distancing restrictions on in-person visits, the DOT Backpack, integrated with Acumentrics Pack-Power™, offers medical practices an off-the-shelf solution to quickly transition in-person work flows, policies and diagnostic equipment to a portable, user friendly telehealth/telediagnostic backpack that works in any location.

The Acumentrics Pack-Power™ allows the DOT Telemedicine Backpack to operate anywhere, anytime. Pack-Power™ is a small, lightweight (2.5 lbs.), splash and dust resistant smart system that provides up to 100W continuous regulated power and up to 9 Hours run time. It can be recharged from any source, including solar panels and vehicles, while simultaneous providing full output power. Pack-Power’s internal USB Data Distribution Hub allows a tablet, hand-held PC or other computing system to be networked with multiple medical devices for easy “plug and play” configuration on the fly.
Acumentrics SVP of Sales and Marketing Steve Corbesero said, “We developed Pack-Power with Telehealth applications like swyMed’s DOT in mind, especially when care requires diagnostic instruments in addition to real-time patient-doctor communications. The COVID 19 Pandemic has accelerated demand for telehealth. Pack-Power can be easily embedded into any telehealth kit, allowing uninterrupted, quality patient care in assisted living facilities, homes, or in the most remote locations in the world.”
Time-critical mobile telemedicine consults require simple, fast, and highly reliable connections.
