EarlySense rings in New Year with new remote health sensor
LAS VEGAS — EarlySense on Tuesday announced it has created the first contact-free consumer health monitor capable of providing accurate information to users, their families and their caregivers on heart, breathing cycles, stress and sleep indicators.
"As the U.S. population ages, it is paramount that we empower our seniors and their families to age safely and respectably at home," stated Avner Halperin, CEO EarlySense. "For the first time ever, a contact-free sensing technology trusted by doctors to help them provide better care in hospitals is now made available for every home," he said. "LIVE by EarlySense is engineered with the intentions and needs of seniors, their families and their caregivers in mind - tracking health, helping optimize sleep and analyzing heart and breathing cycles so family members can rest assured regarding their loved ones' health and sleep patterns."
Based on the same contactless monitoring technology that has been used in U.S. hospitals and clinics for the last decade, LIVE by EarlySense provides people with critical information about vital signs so they can more proactively manage their own health.
By monitoring vital parameters during sleep, LIVE is able to collect hours of continuous health information every day. The simple-to-use app identifies changes in any of these health patterns, and alerts people when there are significant changes. This way, users can take action or even consult a healthcare professional before a real problem develops.
For family members and caregivers of aging parents, LIVE has remote access capabilities through the LIVE+ mobile app, which offers a peace-of-mind safety net, providing key real-time information from anywhere on their loved one's health patterns.
LIVE by EarlySense consists of two components that enable respectful and independent aging: an under-the-mattress piezoelectric sensor disk and the LIVE+ mobile app with remote access, which provides users with access to real-time vitals, daily sleep and wellness reports, and real-time user-configured alerts sent directly to family members and caregivers.
Initial users of LIVE have noted the importance of the data they receive, as they are able to share this information with their families and even with professional caregivers.
"I may not have the normal health complication markers," said one tester, "but because of this beta it has opened up the eyes of my doctor and myself into a possible issue to watch."
LIVE by EarlySense has a suggested retail price of $199.
