Sotera plans to incorporate novel sensing technologies in future versions of the ViSi® Mobile System. These include Sotera’s patented continuous non-invasive blood pressure and patient posture/activity monitoring, a novel feature that will alert clinicians when an unattended patient has been immobile for too long, which could increase the risk of pressure ulcers, or has fallen.
“The prospect of a hospital stay is often stressful for patients and their families,” said Gary Manning, Sotera Wireless Vice President of Global Sales and Business Development. “The ViSi® Mobile can offer a greater sense of confidence, while opening a new standard of care and increasing staff efficiency.
“We look forward to working with Palomar Medical Center and other hospitals in the future to study new ways to enhance the ViSi® Mobile System and utilize it more broadly within health care facilities,” Manning said.
