Israel-based EarlySense Ltd. has announced the latest improvements to its contact-free patient monitoring solution. The newly FDA cleared and CE marked component makes the EverOn System even easier to use by adding wifi functionality. The EverOn system’s sensor is placed under the patient’s mattress, and can monitor heart rate, respiratory rate, and patient motion.
From the press release:
EarlySense’s contact-free patient monitoring system, which was FDA cleared and CE approved in 2010, automatically and continuously monitors a patient’s vital signs and movement, from the moment the patient enters the bed, using a contact-free sensor that is placed under the mattress. The system records and documents the cardiac, respiratory, and motion parameters for a full hospital unit. It alerts staff when significant changes in a patient’s condition take place, as well as when a patient needs turning to avoid pressure ulcers or is leaving the bed and is in danger of falling. Nurses are informed of patient status changes on the patient’s bed side monitor, at the nurse’s station, on their mobile phones and on a large screen display mounted in a prominent spot on the wall in the department.
