Care on Location Launches Acumentrics Powered Telemedicine Backpack
Many on the streets of Denver have barriers preventing them from going to the Doctor's office. Now, through the use of the MobilTEK backpack, the street outreach program at Colorado Coalition for the Homeless is enabling nurses to connect doctors in the office to patients on the street.
The MobilTEK backpack is a multi-component ruggedized kit easily carried on the back that is deployed in seconds. With telescoping legs and quick detach telemedicine kit, users can set up a complete telemedicine connection in seconds. Components such as the touch screen tablet, ear/throat/skin camera, digital stethoscope and more give the doctor back at the clinic all the information they need to examine and diagnose patients anywhere.
The Acumentrics Pack-Power™ allows the MobilTEK backpack to be operated without an external power source. Pack-Power™ is a small, lightweight (2 lbs.), splash and dust resistant UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) that provides up to 100W continuous regulated power and up to 9 Hours run time. The integrated USB hub operates medical devices and provides bidirectional communication with the tablet.
Vice President for Integrated Health Services Andrew Grimm at the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless said, "The Coalition is excited to partner with Care on Location to use the MobilTEK backpack to meet individuals experiencing homelessness where they are at and deliver care they may not otherwise receive."
Acumentrics Director of Business Development Matt Kosakowski said, "It is an honor to support this noteworthy work that delivers much needed medical care to the homeless. Pack-Power™
