New Rechargeable Digital Transmitter for VersaCare Telemetry Solution


CLEVELAND, OH (October 3, 2013)—The ScottCare Corporation announces the introduction of Innovo, a rechargeable digital transmitter for the company’s VersaCare multi-parameter telemetry solution serving cardiopulmonary rehabilitation clinics throughout the U.S. and internationally. ScottCare will feature the Innovo unit in Booth #607 at this year’s Annual Meeting of the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR) in Nashville, Tenn., October 3-5, 2013.

ScottCare continually works to augment their TeleRehab™ line with products that deliver improved usability, functionality and results. Designing the new transmitter with a low-maintenance lithium-ion rechargeable battery meets this goal while creating an overall cost savings for customers. The Innovo transmitter also incorporates multiple customer-centric features including an intelligent power-save mode that puts the unit to sleep after five minutes of inactivity, helping to conserve battery power and reduce operating costs. The Innovo also extends battery life and simplifies use by adding an On/Off switch to enable a quick and easy way to shutdown the device.

Improving upon prior transmitters, the Innovo is more than 30% smaller and lighter yet designed with increased durability to better withstand wear and tear. The Innovo also offers an illuminated and raised power switch for more effortless operation. The unit is compatible with all ScottCare digital telemetry systems and still features both 3-wire and 5-wire leads to meet customer needs.

In addition to the new Innovo transmitter, ScottCare will be showcasing the upcoming release of VersaCare version 2.1, which will feature direct integration with AACVPR’s Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation Registry. This integration will enable VersaCare users to more easily and precisely benchmark and manage patient outcomes against national data, helping to improve their overall program results.

VersaCare 2.1, the industry’s only Windows® 7 based rehab telemetry system, includes multiple usability enhancements including one-click modality transition, advanced Outcomes (SQL) query capabilities for customized reporting, incorporation of the MET formula for NuStep® T5 recumbent cross trainer users, and a more user-friendly layout for VersaCare’s mobile companion, VersaCare GO. VersaCare 2.1 will also include the availability of HIPAA-compliant encrypted hard drives and flash drives.
