Allion Taiwan and Allion Japan Authorized as Continua Test Labs

Continua Health Alliance (Continua) has officially announced that both Allion Labs. Inc. (Allion Taiwan) and Allion Japan Inc. (Allion Japan) are accredited as Continua Test Labs, authorized to provide test certification programs and consulting services for personal connected healthcare devices, as part of the Continua Certification program. Both Allion Taiwan and Allion Japan also have recognized Continua Certification Experts (CCE) in place, to support the testing and certification of Continua personal connected health technologies.

 

Continua is dedicated to the development of global industry standards to ensure end-to-end, plug-and-play interoperability of personal connected health devices for the seamless and secure collection, transmission, and storage of personal health data. Continua is a pioneer in establishing standards-based guidelines and security for connected health technologies such as sensors, remote monitoring devices, tablets, gateways, and smart phones, as well as networked and cloud solutions.

 

At present, individuals can monitor their own health and fitness using personal health and medical devices. However, the data generated by these devices cannot always be easily and securely shared with family members and health care providers. In the case of the chronically ill, real-time monitoring of this information can be the difference between life and death. Continua is working to improve this situation by promoting Design Guidelines that facilitate seamless connectivity between personal connected health products and services.

 

Besides our Continua certification program support, Allion is also authorized to conduct Wi-Fi, USB, and Bluetooth compliance testing on Continua certified products.
