Leaf Healthcare joins NPUAP Corporate Advisory Council
Date:8/6/2014

PLEASANTON, Calif., Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Leaf Healthcare, Inc., an innovative medical technology company focusing on wireless patient monitoring solutions, announced today it has joined the Corporate Advisory Council (CAC) of the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP).

"We are tremendously proud and extremely excited to be part of the Corporate Advisory Council of the prestigious National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel," said Barrett Larson, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Leaf Healthcare.  "By participating on the Corporate Advisory Council, we will have the opportunity to work with other organizations that share our ultimate goal of eliminating pressure ulcers.  We hope to make positive and significant contributions to the council and we look forward to developing collaborative working relationships with our partners."

Institution-acquired pressure ulcers are a leading threat to modern quality healthcare. Research shows that pressure ulcers cost the nation's healthcare system more than $11 billion a year.   To help healthcare providers reduce these costs – while improving patient safety and clinical outcomes – Leaf Healthcare creates wireless patient monitoring solutions.

The Leaf Patient Monitoring System is comprised of a small, lightweight, wearable sensor that electronically monitors a patient's position and movements.  Data collected by the sensor is communicated wirelessly to central monitoring stations or mobile devices that provide alerts when necessary to ensure that patients are repositioned according to their prescribed turning schedules to reduce incidence of pressure ulcers. The device has been cleared for sale by FDA 510(k).   

"Leaf Healthcare is dedicated to helping healthcare providers end the risk of pressure ulcers that threaten patient care," said Annemari Cooley, Vice President of Leaf Healthcare.  "By joining with other organizations that have this same vision, we are confident that it will be met."
