Leaf Healthcare Introduces Trailblazing Patient Mobility Monitoring Solution at AACN/NTI 2017
Date:5/23/2017

PLEASANTON, Calif., May 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Leaf Healthcare, recognized for developing one of the world's most innovative medical devices for pressure ulcer prevention, will unveil its comprehensive mobility monitoring solution at the American Association of Critical Care Nurses' National Teaching Institute and Critical Care Exposition in Houston May 22-25.

The Leaf Patient Monitoring System is the first mobility monitoring system designed specifically for the hospital environment.  The system seamlessly tracks patient movement throughout the mobility continuum – from bedridden to fully ambulating patients.  The system will be on display at the NTI's Critical Care Expo in the Leaf Healthcare booth (Number 4839). The wireless system automatically monitors, detects, and documents:

  • The distance a patient walks.
  • The number of steps a patient takes.
  • The length of time a patient ambulates.
  • The amount of time spent ambulating vs. sitting vs. lying in bed.
The Leaf sensor is a wireless, single-use, disposable device that is adhered to a patient's chest. The sensor monitors a patient's position, orientation, movement and activity. Care providers can remotely monitor the turning and mobility status for all patients.

"When hospitalized patients spend too much time in bed or insufficiently active, bad things tend to happen," said Barrett Larson, co-founder and CEO of Leaf. "Our patient monitoring system helps clinicians track patient movement and focus more effort on those who could benefit from increased activity."

Unlike consumer fitness tracking technology that some hospitals have experimented with, the Leaf system was specifically designed to track hospitalized patients. Consumer fitness trackers are designed to monitor active and healthy people. The Leaf system was designed to monitor hospitalized patients who have impaired mobility.  The Leaf system also provides clinically actionable information that is easily customizable for each unique hospital environment. 

The Leaf Patient Monitoring System uses a wearable, wireless sensor and continuously monitors the activity of hospitalized patients to support mobility goals that help decrease length of stay and reduce risk of readmission. In the case of immobilized or bedridden patients, Leaf also notifies clinicians when an intervention is needed to prevent immobility-related health complications, such as pressure ulcers.

The Leaf Patient Monitoring system was recognized as one of the most innovative wearable technologies in the world at the Wearable Tech World Cup in Germany. It was also named one of the most innovative medical devices in North America by Frost & Sullivan, a global consulting firm that called the Leaf product "the industry's most advanced tracking system."
