Pairing Wireless Medical Devices

Stryker is one of the world’s leading medical technology companies. When they were developing their WiSe HDTV Transmitter and WiSe HDTV Surgical Display which allows surgical video as well as video signals from other devices like surgical robots and radiology devices to be transmitted wirelessly. They needed to ensure that a transmitter and display were intentionally linked.

They needed to ensure that a transmitter or display didn’t accidentally link to a display or transmitter in a different operating room.
