EarlySense Announces Patient Rest Indicator for Better Patient Supervision at Night
Date:12/5/2013

WALTHAM, Mass., Dec. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- EarlySense, the market leader in Proactive Patient Care Solutions, unveiled today at New England's Israel Business Council Event that the company will be introducing several new features to the EarlySense System in January 2014. One significant feature is a Patient Rest Indicator which will give caregivers indication of a patient's level of rest and motion while in bed. This will become an important indication for when patients are preparing to get out of bed during the night, opposed to existing solutions that alarm only after the patient has left the bed. Now clinical teams can be proactive in getting to the bedside prior to risky situations developing.

In a research presented at Computing in Cardiology 2013 Conference, EarlySense engineers demonstrated the ability of the technology to accurately identify pending bed exit situations more than 50 seconds before they occur. "This new feature will give clinicians an added tool to use in helping further reduce harm to patients. Our users report that actively monitoring patients without ever having to touch the patient improves their workflow tremendously," said Tim O'Malley, President of EarlySense.

Thanks to the support of the Massachusetts community, EarlySense has continued to grow and introduce innovative developments throughout the continuum of care. With Governor Patrick's support and as a direct result of his visit to Israel in March 2011, EarlySense opened its U.S. headquarters in Waltham, Massachusetts that same year. Now the company is part of a growing number of Israeli companies generating revenue and jobs in Massachusetts. Massachusetts is rich with Medical Technology Companies, which gives a growing innovator like EarlySense access to talented individuals to help it grow and thrive.

"The Massachusetts community continues to support our company's growth," said EarlySense Chief Executive Officer Avner Halperin. "Massachusetts is an outstanding hub for ground breaking medical technologies that make patients safer with better outcomes in a cost effective manner. We owe much of our recent success to the supportive environment we found in this area that we chose as our home in the USA."

The EarlySense System is being used in Newton Wellesley Hospital of Newton, Massachusetts and Metro West Medical Center of Framingham, Massachusetts. The Ribbon cutting ceremony for the EarlySense System at Metro West was led by Governor Patrick in September of 2011. Dozens of other hospitals both in Massachusetts and around the world are utilizing the EarlySense technology.

About EarlySense
EarlySense has brought to market an innovative technology designed to advance proactive patient care and empower clinicians to achieve better patient outcomes.  Through early detection, the EarlySense system assists clinicians in identifying and preventing potential adverse events. It does so by providing motion rates and bed exit alarms, to help reduce falls and pressure ulcers, as well as surveillance of heart and respiratory rates to potentially detect patient deterioration.  The company's flagship product, the EarlySense System, is a continuous, contact-free, patient safety monitoring solution that monitors and documents a patient's vital signs and movement using a sensor that is placed underneath a bed mattress or a chair cushion. There are no leads or cuffs to connect to the patient who has complete freedom of movement and is not burdened by any cumbersome attachments.  The system was designed to monitor patients on medical surgical floors who are usually monitored by nursing staff approximately once every four hours. The system is currently installed at hospitals and rehabilitation centers in the USA and Europe.  It is also commercially available in Canada. Hospital administrators report that patients, their families and staff feel more comfortable knowing the system is in place.  EarlySense Inc. is headquartered in Waltham, MA.
