Ramat Gan, Israel, February 17, 2014 – EarlySense, the market leader in Proactive Patient Care Solutions, today announced that it offers an OEM solution to companies that are interested in providing contact-free and continuous sensing capabilities in a wide set of medical and consumer fields. The new OEM solution gives companies the freedom of choice, enabling the integration of any combination of the core EarlySense modules, including heart rate and respiratory rate monitoring, patient fall prevention, and pressure ulcer (decubitus) prevention, without ever touching the patient.
“We are very excited to offer an OEM solution of our contact-free sensing technology to a broad set of applications that will touch the lives of many patients around the world,” said Yfat Scialom, VP of International Sales and Marketing at EarlySense. “Business partners that integrate the EarlySense OEM product will benefit from 10 years of research, clinical validation and studies, as well as extensive market development in the professional healthcare markets, which will allow them smooth technical and regulatory integration”.
Many medical and consumer product categories will benefit from the EarlySense contact-free and continuous sensing capabilities, including beds, ventilation systems, infusion pumps, homecare products, nurse call systems, EMR systems, sleep monitoring systems, and others. With the new OEM solution, companies can easily use the EarlySense continuous monitoring technology to tailor patient care and prevent patient deterioration.
EarlySense has brought to market an innovative technology designed to advance proactive patient care and empower clinicians to achieve better patient outcomes. Through early detection, the EarlySense technology assists clinicians in identifying and preventing potential adverse events. It does so by providing motion rates and bed exit alarms, to help reduce falls and pressure ulcers, as well as surveillance of heart and respiratory rates to potentially detect patient deterioration. The company’s technology provides a continuous, contact-free, patient safety monitoring solution that monitors and documents a patient’s vital signs and movement using a sensor that is placed underneath a bed mattress. There are no leads or cuffs to connect to the patient who has complete freedom of movement and is not burdened by any cumbersome attachments.
The technology is currently being used at hospitals and rehabilitation centers in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific. EarlySense International headquarters is in Israel, and US headquarters is in Waltham, MA.
