We developed a monitoring device and the ecosystem behind it to automatically measure vital signs in non-intensive hospital wards, thereby allowing caregivers to remotely conduct check-ups for patients in a far more efficient way. The data and correlating diagnostics are displayed on an online platform, through which health workers remain informed in real-time, 24/7, of deteriorating cases.
We were inspired by the feedback from several doctors at a recent online hackathon to tackle COVID-19 challenges, stressing monitoring as a pressing issue.
Unique selling points
The wearable device that we developed is compact and simple for optimal patient comfort. It monitors the most important parameters to track a COVID-19 patient’s status, enabling the simultaneous monitoring of many patients.
Our solution improves accessibility to medical data, making diagnostics faster and more efficient. Patients will benefit from more attentive and smarter care from healthcare professionals.
Sustainable Development Goals
Through the improvement of patient comfort and working conditions, the innovation significantly contributes to the third UN SDG goal of good health and wellbeing.
