Telehealth vendor Numera recently acquired BlueLibris, a maker of health monitoring devices. Its soon-to be-released wearable mobile device provides two-way, hands-free voice communication through a cellular network; GPS location tracking; and automated fall detection algorithms for Personal Emergency Response Services (PERS). Pictured here is the flagship BlueLibris device in a charging cradle.

Numera says BlueLibris devices also will be equipped with Numera's telehealth gateway technology, allowing patients to upload biometric measurements from a variety of health devices through the mobile personal health gateway and receive personalized reminders to take medications, upload measurements, and receive coaching specific to health conditions.

Numera plans to market the BlueLibris product through distribution and business partners by the fourth quarter of 2012.
