TeleMedic Systems¹ New Lightweight VITALLINK3 is certified for Operation

Iridium Satellite Data Links Offer Complete Global Coverage for Mobile Vital
Signs Monitoring System

TAUNTON U.K. ­ 27 April 2009 ­ TeleMedic Systems announces that its new
lightweight VitalLink3 medical vital signs monitoring system has
successfully completed testing over Iridium¹s worldwide communication
network, and is now available to support mobile medical data transmissions
on a global scale.

Leveraging the Iridium satellite network, we can now extend the reach of
our telemedicine solutions to users who are beyond the reach of terrestrial
wireless networks ­ from health workers in Africa to search-and-rescue teams
in Alaska, from aviators flying across Antarctica to sailors on the high
seas, said TeleMedic Systems CEO, Alasdair MacDonald.

TeleMedic developed the VitalLink3, a unique mobile vital signs monitor, for
use in remote applications. Designed to be a universal interface between
medical devices and IT systems, the VitalLink3 acts as a communication
gateway for the dissemination of acquired medical data and the integration
of other specialist medical/IT systems.

TeleMedic¹s VitalNet offers secure, real-time data transmission that links
with other systems and services. VitalNet¹s secure portal supplies medical
professionals with remote access, integration of patient records and an
audit trail of actual or attempted access to any part of the system. Built
to hospital standards, the easy-to-use VitalLink3 offers a cost-effective
solution for customers in need of medical support in areas where hospital
treatment is unavailable.

The flexibility of the VitalLink3 allows us to match the requirements of
the user with the available communication carrier, said Gerry Buss, COO,
TeleMedic Systems. The system transmits via a wireless network when
available or through the Iridium satellites in more remote regions.

The Iridium short-burst data service, with its global reach and low-latency
data connections, is ideally suited for delivering vital signs to medical
professionals with a high degree of reliability, said Greg Ewert, executive
vice president of Global Distribution Channels, Iridium. TeleMedic¹s
VitalLink3 is a good example of how Iridium¹s Service Partners and
integrators are leveraging our universal connectivity to create innovative
solutions for tracking, monitoring and telematic applications around the
