Synopsis:

Lengthy sea journeys expose the ship's crew to higher risks of illness, stress or aggravation of pre-existing medical conditions. Poor crew health (mental and physical) is a major concern as it correlates to human errors that cause up to 80% of marine incidents.

Aeras Medical has developed a remote health monitoring solution, which collects/stores crews' medical information, as well as provides early warning on potential health conditions. Aeras Medical also offers video consultation with a network of healthcare professionals, who can offer necessary advice. This ensures an improved monitoring and management of the crews' health while on board the ship.
