Isansys has received regulatory clearance to make available the LifeTouch Patient Surveillance System in Europe. The heart of the system is the LifeTouch HRV011 sensor that continuously monitors a patient’s ECG and passes the data wirelessly to the “cloud” for a physician to be able to review from just about anywhere.
The transfer of information happens when the sensor sends its readings to the Patient Gateway device, which in turn relays the data to be uploaded to the associated EMR.
From the press release:
The ultra-low profile and lightweight LifeTouch HRV011 sensor measures and analyses the ECG signal of every heartbeat in real-time to provide data for Heart Rate Variability (HRV) methods with unprecedented accuracy. Robust algorithms in the HRV011 extract key ECG parameters from which Heart Rate and Respiration Rate are continuously derived. These key vital signs, together with the HRV data, may be viewed directly via a local network on the Patient Gateway web server interface, or forwarded into a secure cloud-based electronic patient record that is updated continuously and in real-time.
The LifeTouch HRV011 sensor has been designed to be as low cost as possible while incorporating the very latest generation components and state-of-the-art functionality. As a single-use, semi-disposable device with the low-cost body contacting parts being disposable and the electronics modules being refurbished, it leads to a new paradigm in affordable high quality medical devices. Key target markets for Isansys’ solution outside of Europe include developing economies where the system offers healthcare providers the ability to leapfrog many of the expensive medical devices currently in use.
