Cinterion, Gemalto's machine-to-machine business segment and TZ medical have jointly won Connected World Magazine's prestigious Gold Value Chain Award for Aera CT?. The device is a light weight and cost effective mHealth hearth arrhythmia monitoring device. The Value Chain Awards honor the most successful corporate adopters of M2M technology and the solution providers who make their success possible.

TZ Medical's Aera CT device improves the ability to detect heart arrhythmias during normal day-to-day activities, and over long periods of time. Designed for ease-of-use and comfort for patients, the device uses a Cinterion M2M module to enable the Aera CT device to communicate data via cellular networks and the Internet. TZ Medical's solution provides patients and their physicians with 24/7 monitoring and improved detection and visibility of irregular heart rhythms. Authorized caregivers can securely log-on and view patient data from anywhere in the world and with total privacy protection, to determine effective treatment approaches.

Peggy Smedley, editorial director of Connected World, congratulated the 2012 winners of connected world's awards. She stated that the winners represent successful implementations in home health, education, emergency response, tracking and even prevention of distracted driving. Their implementation of M2M technology and connected devices can be relied upon to make our lives more convenient and efficient while also providing safety and responsibility.

"PricewaterhouseCoopers estimates that wireless remote diagnostic services will generate $3.4 billion in revenues worldwide by 2017, making up 15 percent of the global mHealth market(1)," said Norbert Muhrer, Senior Vice President of Cinterion M2M at Gemalto. "The award-winning Aera CT solution demonstrates how secure and reliable Cinterion M2M technology can contribute to drive efficiency gains and growth in the mHealth services sector."
