hFon plus

Dossenheim, 1st October 2012 – HMM Diagnostics GmbH presents the revised hFon plus on the world-biggest medicine fair Medica from the 14th to the 17th of November, 2012 in Düsseldorf. hFon plus was developed especially for the hLine telemonitoring system, a complete package solution with suitable infrastructure. Not only vital values can be measured with hFon plus, but also transferred wirelessly to any telemonitoring system. For an even quicker and better wireless transference the telehealth smartphone hFon plus is equipped with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth to 4.0 and a chip ANT 2.
The operating system is also new. The old Windows system 6.5 was replaced by Android 4. „Android 4 guarantees a very light surface service and can be adapted lighter to the hardware“, says Maher Khoury, Managing Director of HMM Diagnostics GmbH. „Another advantage of Android is the compatibility with many Apps.“
The high resolution touch screen display is bigger with 4.0 inches HD TFT than the predecessor's model. „With hFon plus a better visibility and use is guaranteed, in particular for older people“, according to Khoury.
hFon plus is equipped with a module slot which is suitable not only for the application of blood glucose measuring modules, but in future also for other diagnostics devices like ECG or oximeter.
Two cameras belong to the other innovations. The rear camera disposes of a resolution of 5.0 Megapixel with auto focus which supports audio, video and auto focus functions. The front camera has a 0.3 mega pixels CMOS sensor. „hFon plus connects the functions of a telehealth measuring instrument with the functions of modern smartphones. The telehealth smartphone hFon plus is a milestone in the mobile telemonitoring“, adds Khoury.
hFon plus has furthermore an integrated memory card of 512 MB RAM / 4 GB ROM, 3D acceleration sensor, GPS and supports micro SD memory cards up to 32 GB. The hFon plus is available in black/silver and white/silver from autumn, 2012.
The product port folio of HMM encloses beside blood glucose measuring systems also blood pressure measuring instruments, different fitness and wellness articles. All measuring products are able to transfer vital values wirelessly to collecting units as hFon plus.
