System to Avoid Fall Events
Technology Medical Devices
Rinicare plans to develop an integrated 24/7 non-invasive System to Avoid Fall Events (SAFE) that combines a thermal imaging (TI) optical sensor and bespoke algorithms on an embedded PC (EPC) into a Smart Surveillance Unit (SSU) to detect changes in a patient’s position in a hospital style bed. This information will be used to provide an early warning message (visual/ audio) to the clinician so the relevant action can be taken to prevent that patient falling out of the bed. The system could be used in both single rooms and wards and it is proposed the alarm system can be customised to suit the characteristics or behaviours of the patient.
