ATLANTA, June 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Numerex Corp (Nasdaq: NMRX), a leading single source provider of secure machine-to-machine (M2M) products and services, announced it is a technology enabler on the Gold Value Chain Award-winning team, which was recognized during the annual Value Chain Awards Gala at the Connected World Conference sponsored by Connected World magazine on Tuesday, June 12. The Value Chain Awards honor the most successful corporate adopters of M2M technology and connected devices, as well as the solution providers that make their success possible.
MicroMed, through its partnership with Numerex, was the recipient of a gold award in the Healthcare category. MicroMed Cardiovascular chose to partner with Numerex to develop a custom cellular DNA (Device-Network-Application) solution for implementing remote monitoring into their Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) Controller. MicroMed Cardiovascular enhanced their system design with Numerex's leading edge machine-to-machine (M2M) technology and developed a new cellular-enabled device called the "Conquest Controller." The device allows for continuous device telemetry reporting on a 24/7 basis utilizing Numerex connectivity and the Numerex FAST application platform. Because the new MicroMed solution no longer requires a patient to plug their Controller into an Attendant unit via a wired connection, patients have increased mobility and care-givers have much more timely insight into the performance of the LVAD device.
"We are very pleased and honored to have been distinguished by Connected World magazine along with our quality partners in the healthcare category this year," said Michael Marett, Chief Revenue Officer of Numerex. "As this award demonstrates, we remain focused on developing M2M solutions that are innovative and competitive."
This year's Connected World Conference was held June 11-13 at the Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, IL.
