In this paper, we are going to introduce a multimodal portable medical device for both medical imaging tele-collaboration and monitoring of vital parameters. The introduced portable unit offers diversity of medical devices and is in position to acquire ultrasound images, ECG 12 leads, and blood pressure and be able to measure oxygen level in the blood. In addition, the portable unit is equipped with all available telecommunication gateways (e.g. GSM, UMTS, ISDN, DSL, Satellite) providing a great communication convenience to the physicians utilizing XMMP instant messaging protocols.
