January 6, 2020 0 By FM

EarlySense’s patient monitoring system has received the Dutch 2019 Prix Galien MedTech Innovation Award. 

The award recognizes outstanding biomedical and medical technology product achievement that improves the human condition.

Without ever touching the patient, the EarlySense system provides continuous monitoring by using a sensor that is placed underneath a bed mattress. 

Its contact-free sensor is installed in hundreds of hospitals and post-acute care facilities around the world to assist providers in early detection and prevention of potential adverse events, such as code blue events or patient falls. 

It assists clinicians in identifying patient deterioration before an event occurs by providing heart and respiratory rate monitoring, motion rates and bed exit alarms, to help reduce falls and pressure ulcers.
