NexJ Medical Peripheral Mobile Adapter Will be designed to enable NexJ's Mobile Healthcare solutions to interact with Bluetooth peripherals.

Class Diagram

Classes

phonegapMedicalDeviceInterface

  • Interface to a medical device for use by the NexJ mobile health solution
  • Implemented in Javascript

medicalDevice

  • Representation of a medical device
  • Delegates to a native medical device interface
  • Implemented in Javascript

nativeMedicalDeviceInterface

  • Private interface to physical medical devices
  • Implemented in native code (Objective C on iOS, java on Android)

bluetoothAdapter

  • Adapter to allow medical device objects to interact with communication libraries on the device
  • In the future a Wifi adapter will also be needed to fulfill the same role of communication over another protocol
  • Implemented in native code

bloodPressureBluetoothAdapter

  • Adapter to allow medical device objects to interact with specific medical peripherals
  • These will be needed for each type of medical peripheral
  • Implemented in native code

Native Bluetooth API

  • Libraries on the mobile devices SDK that allows programmable interaction with Bluetooth devices

Blood Pressure Device

  • Physical medical device peripheral

Flaws

  • Should we be concerned about managing the instances of medicalDevice or will the rest of the solution
    • Rest of the application: It becomes more of a Medical device factory
    • This Project: Another layer should be added to represent a device manager
  • bloodPressureBluetoothAdapter should know about specific device communication without relying on any specific communication protocol, otherwise it will need be reimplemented per communication adapter(eg. BluetoothAdapter, WifiAdapter)
