The Connected Ambulance To Be Presented By Thuraya

The exhibition, taking place at Dubai World Trade Center from January 30 to February 2, will include daily, live demonstrations of the Connected Ambulance. These demonstrations will be presented in collaboration with Scotty, a solutions provider and manufacturer of communications solutions, and AVM Auto Engineering, a company specializing in custom solutions for purpose built vehicles.

This new “ambulance to hospital” based telemedicine system works over Thuraya’s extensive and reliable network, connecting onboard wired and wireless medical devices to hospitals and diagnosing physicians. Accident victims can now receive the most effective urgent treatment, immediately, or en route to hospital. Connected Ambulance significantly extends the capabilities of paramedics and first responders, who will be able to interact with doctors and equipment based elsewhere.

Using Connected Ambulance, paramedics can transmit a patient’s vital signs data automatically over Thuraya’s satellite network. Doctors who are not on the scene can choose which onboard camera to use, zooming in on injuries and wounds for close analysis. Connected Ambulance supplements the existing skills and the traditional operational tools health care providers already use, helping them deliver accessible and affordable emergency care through the use of new technologies.
