Participants are invited to learn about how the EarlySense solution is helping medical teams to save lives and hospitals to save money.
Waltham, MA, October 12, 2011 — EarlySense, a market leader in contact-free patient monitoring solutions, announced today that it will exhibit at the TedMed Innovation Showcase, a new part of the TEDMED Conference (www.tedmed.com), October 25-28, 2011 at the Hotel del Coronado in San Diego, California.
EarlySense CEO Mr. Avner Halperin said, “Patient safety is a central issue today for patients, hospitals, government and the media. EarlySense’s system automatically and continuously monitors a patient’s vital signs and movement, using a contact-free sensor that is placed under the mattress. We look forward to demonstrating how the technology proactively detects patient deterioration, communicates it in real time and facilitates sophisticated care management. EarlySense is already making a difference in hospitals in the U.S. and Europe by helping medical teams to save lives and hospitals to save money.”
Experts agree that the EarlySense contact-free patient monitoring solution is making a positive impact. See some examples below:

The system records and documents the cardiac, respiratory, and motion parameters for a full hospital unit. This information can be seamlessly communicated to the patient’s hospital record through the standards based EMR interface. The system alerts staff when significant changes in a patient’s clinical condition take place, as well as when a patient is at risk of falls or pressure ulcers. Nurses are informed of patient status changes, via a wired or wireless, communication
system, on the patient’s bed side monitor, at the nurse’s station, on their handheld devices and on a large screen display mounted in a prominent spot on the wall in the department. Timely alerts of patient deterioration help make hospital Rapid Response Teams more effective. The EarlySense system is FDA approved, has a CE mark and is cleared for hospital and clinic use.
EarlySense is bringing to market an innovative technology designed to advance proactive patient care to enable better patient outcomes. The company’s flagship product is an automatic, continuous, contact-free, patient monitoring solution that monitors and documents a patient’s vital signs and movement.
