Teijin Pharma and SRETT Sign Exclusive Distribution


Agreement for Respiratory Remote-monitoring Device

Tokyo, Japan, Oct 16, 2017 --- Teijin Pharma Limited, the core company of the Teijin
Groups healthcare business, and SRETT, a French IoT provider, announced today they
have agreed to an exclusive distribution arrangement in Japan for TeleOx, a device
developed by SRETT which remotely monitors patients respiratory functions in
oxygen therapy.

TeleOx is a compact device with a diameter of 46mm and low weight of 34 grams,
integrated with the oxygen cannula to measure patients respiratory rate and oxygen
flow rate even during oxygen inhalation. TeleOx is Bluetooth Smart-enabled device
and compatible with various systems, furthermore it can store the conditions of use for
two years in built-in memories. This small device is compatible with Hi-Sanso3S,
Hi-Sanso5S by Teijin Pharma, and will be launched in April 2018 in Japan. Teijin
Pharma plans to provide rental service for medical institutions, aiming for leveraging
TeleOx for patient instruction and management.

Since 1991, Teijin Pharma has been selling systems which monitor the operating status
and oxygen flow settings of home oxygen concentrators and then providing this
information to healthcare providers via telephone networks. However, since these
systems do not monitor how much time patients have actually absorbed oxygen. Teijin
Pharma acquired the exclusive distribution rights of TeleOx in Japan from SRETT with
the aim of solving existing problems and promoting more appropriate use of home
oxygen therapy by introducing TeleOx which can detect the situation of oxygen
inhalation at home.

Teijin Pharma will launch newly advanced oxygen-monitoring services incorporating


TeleOx. The services are planned to be offered to medical institutions in April 2018.
By developing next-generation services for home oxygen therapy, SRETT and Teijin
Pharma look forward to contributing to improved home care in Japan.
