In September of 2018, Taiwan Aulisa incorporated Aulisa Medical USA, Inc. as its wholly-own subsidiary, responsible for marketing and sales of its products in the U.S.. Aulisa integrates medical device science and information communication technologies to provide smart medical solutions for the evolving patient care landscape. The company specializes in wireless, wearable, FDA cleared vitals monitoring systems with continuous, cloud-based, patient monitoring and alarm systems. Through development of new products, Aulisa continues to focus on growing the application of Digital Health, applying big patient data analytics and AI to medical applications.
