Headquartered in Switzerland, Card Guard AG is a leading healthcare technology and solutions provider, focused on delivering the next generation health care delivery platforms for consumers, high-risk and chronically ill patients, and to home health, disease management, eHealth, and wellness / fitness markets. Card Guard is listed on the Swiss Stock Exchange, and has its wholly-owned subsidiaries in the United States, Japan, and its R&D centre in Israel. These subsidiaries include: LifeWatch, Inc. a leading US-based 24/7/365 cardiac monitoring service provider, and Instromedix, a US-based manufacturer of telecardiology products. Card Guard’s revenues are derived from sales of its telemedicine systems, and revenues from its telemedicine services. Card Guard currently employs approximately 490 people worldwide.
In 2006, Frost & Sullivan awarded Card Guard with the Remote Patient Monitoring Growth Strategy Leadership of the Year Award. Card Guard is a member of the Continua Health Alliance, comprised of technology, medical device and health care industry leaders dedicated to making personal telehealth a reality.
Card Guard’s wireless healthcare system, the PMP4, provides the tools required for screening, monitoring, and management of general consumer health, Disease Management, Wellness and Fitness. The PMP4 wireless medical monitors measure and transmit medical data to handheld devices, which can be uploaded to a dedicated Web-Based Medical Centre that physicians and patients may access by using a browser. The PMP4 suite of portable and wireless based devices include: 1 and 12- lead ECG event monitor, Spirometer, Pulse Oximeter, Weight Scale, Blood Pressure monitors and a blood glucose monitor. Card Guard also manufactures land-line telemedicine products for the telehealth market, including 1 to 12-lead ECG recorders, Spirometers, Fetal Maternal Monitors, and telemedicine software packages.
With its proprietary ASIC-based technology, Card Guard stays at the forefront of offering health care applications and products that are embedded into hand held and other self-monitoring devices. Card Guard’s products provide a total solution to health care providers seeking to balance quality of care, rising costs of treatment and shrinking budgets. Its portfolio of wireless and land-line patient monitoring systems and monitoring services provide the tools for efficient monitoring, transmission, acquisition, processing, and storage of a patient’s medical data.
The key drivers for Card Guard solutions are an expanding population of those who are concerned about health conditions, such as obesity, on-set diabetes, hypertension and cardiac problems, and those who are in need of medical supervision and monitoring. These populations will be severely impacted by the shortage of healthcare professionals, and decreasing budgets.
