Headquartered in Waltham, MA, the company offers the EarlySense System that acts as a consolidated platform for monitoring heartbeat, respiratory rate, decubitus ulcers, and patient motion. The platform encompasses components such as unique sensors placed under a patient’s mattress or in a chair, bedside monitor, Central Display Station (CDS), and handheld devices. The sensor measures vibration and calculates motion, HeartBeats Per Minute (BPM), and breathes per minute which detect any changes from regular patterns. In the event of any change in a patient’s status, the platform alerts the nurses through the CDS, large screens deployed at noticeable locations, and handheld devices. “The flexible and contact free nature of our PM platform makes it most patient and family-friendly,” says O’Malley.
Delivering further benefits, the EarlySense platform offers capabilities for secured and continuous monitoring. “Patients could be at potential risk because of certain delays in monitoring,” delineates O’Malley. The presence of a bed sensor to monitor patients on a continual basis facilitates caregivers to make important decisions on the basis of vital information. In this light, O’Malley explains, “While general rounding measurements provide a dozen readings in four hours, our sensors capture two data points per second that amounts to more than 20,000 data points in four hours.” Building on enormous amounts of data empowers clinical teams to improve the quality of care and save lives. Besides offering solutions for hospitals, the company delves to provide HomeCare solutions for Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM). Working and performing studies on similar lines of hospital care, the HomeCare solutions involve placing an ultra-sensitive sensor under a bed or chair to measure key parameters.
The entire emphasis is on proactive versus reactive care which widens the door for contact free technology
Moving parallel with evolving trends, EarlySense will continue to infuse progressive technological trends into their PM solutions. “The entire emphasis is on proactive versus reactive care which widens the door for contact free technology,” says O’Malley. Leveraging such bright opportunities, the company will pursue to invest its capabilities across various healthcare environments.
