Aerotel to present at Exposanità International in Italy

Aerotel Medical Systems will participate at Exposanità International Healthcare Exhibition, which will take place May 16 – 19, 2012 at the Bologna Fair district in Italy.

Aerotel's Italian Country Manager, Pierfranco Borgotallo, will showcase during the conference the company's innovative mobile health and telemedicine solutions at Pad. 26, Stand: C99.

Products offered by Aerotel will include: personal GPS location and tracking system, GeoSkeeper, wireless homecare hub for chronic patient monitoring and disease management, Connect-Cell, and the HeartView, a personal hand-held 12-lead ECG monitor.

Participation at the event is part of Aerotel's aim to increase its activities in the aging Italian and Mediterranean markets. With a growth in health expenditures of 28 percent in the last 7 years, Italy represents an attractive market of telemedicine and mHealth providers.

Figures presented by the organizers indicate that Italy's population over 65 years old is expected to reach 35.3% of the entire population in 2040, well above the European average of 30%. The number of Italians over 80 will reach 14.5% in 2040 compared to 11.5% in Europe. With growing number of people receiving home care, there exists strong potential for growth in home care monitoring devices and telemedicine markets.

Exposanità is Italy’s largest exhibition and one of Europe’s largest events dedicated to healthcare and assistance. The show, which was established 30 years ago, provides a platform for manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors. Exposanità is dedicated to hospital products and technologies, handicap and rehabilitation devices, orthopedics, medical innovation, ICT, diagnostics and other themes related to health care and assistance.
