Visible Light Communications can provide more efficient and safer communications for healthcare devices, in hospitals, the workplace, or home

In many healthcare environments, even cellphones are not permitted due to concern over radio frequency interference with sensitive electronics equipment or devices. Visible Light Communications is an ideal method to avoid such interference and provide less expensive, more reliable communications between equipment (M2M) or between people/patients and monitoring stations.  And since VLC requires a direct signal/path to equipment, or to a patient wearing a device, if that connection is broken, such as a patient falling or leaving a room, alarms can be triggered to a nursing station.
