 The term Indoor Positioning Systems (IPS) primarily concerns location-based services on mobile phones where GPS does not work. The term Real Time Locating Systems (RTLS) primarily concerns locating people and things at a distance, securely, using second generation RFID. The subjects are converging with Apple, Samsung, Google, Nokia, Microsoft, Hewlett Packard and IBM clashing for the tens of millions of dollars of business that is emerging. The first $0.5 billion order has been landed. This subject heavily involves short range communications notably WiFi and Bluetooth and inertial navigation and advanced RFID as it progresses to determining 3D position including orientation and line of travel.

Fetal Monitoring, Diagnostics And Predictive Tests Market - Global Forecast, Market Share, Size, Growth And Industry Analysis, 2012 - 2018
By - Transparency Market Research
Fetal monitoring refers to the use of an instrument to record the pulse rate of a fetus during pregnancy. Post fetal monitoring discrepancies in the heartbeat of a fetus are observed and this monitoring data is later used for diagnostic purposes.  The rising prevalence of cardio pulmonary diseases and the advent of technological advancements such as non invasive surgeries are some of the drivers of the market. Rising healthcare related expenditure in the emerging economies such as India, China, Brazil, and Mexico and the constantly improving medical infrastructure in...
Temperature Monitoring Devices Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
The accurate measurement of body temperature is crucial to ensure safe and effective care. Temperature monitoring devices provide precise measurement, recording and assessment of thermal balance in case of medical conditions which may impair thermoregulation thereby leaving patients susceptible to hyperthermia or hypothermia. Abnormally high or low temperatures may provide clues to the onset of infection, inflammation, and antigenic responses, as well as can be indicative of treatment efficacy. Electronic thermometers are most common temperature monitoring devices owing to their ease of...
Antifungal Drugs: Technologies And The Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth and Forecast, 2012 - 2018
By - Transparency Market Research
Fungal infections occur due to unhygienic, damp, and unclean environment. They are caused by microscopic organisms that can invade the epithelial tissue. Most dermal infections are the tinea group of infections and are commonly observed in people. They affect nails, hair, scalp, and the skin in various areas of the body. Systemic fungal infections are caused by the ingestion or inhalation of spores and cause fungal pneumonia and opportunistic fungus causes diseases such as candidaisis, meningitis, mucormycosis and some others. There is a very broad base of fungal diseases in humans...
