It is one of the first experiences of telemedicine-based satellite networks developed by European Space Agency.

In addition a server was used to broadcast video clips direct to doctors (updates and other information deemed useful).

The data collected have contributed to the analysis of medical pathology thrombocytopenia effective in relation to the use of the active Detametazone
