London-based RDT, a telemedicine products specialist, has introduced its new Tempus IC, a small, lightweight remote medical “assistant” that RDT claims will transmit information doctors need to identify up to 90 percent of conditions remotely.

Last year, RDT (Booth No. 1273) introduced the new Tempus IC (integrated communications) version of its in-flight medical emergency response system, presented as a breakthrough in telemedicine. The new model is significantly lighter and more compact than its predecessor, the Tempus 2000, and also offers new functions such as the streaming of live video.
In the last 10 years, the odds of facing an in-flight medical emergency haven’t changed much, but thanks to the development of aviation telemedicine, the odds of surviving such an event have gone up considerably.
