The Foresite solution uses a variety of sensor technologies to gather a range of data on each individual.
A comprehensive range of data on each individual
The Foresite solution uses three different sensor technologies to build a profile on the behavior of the individual and assess fall risk.
In Foresite Eldercare, the bed sensor monitors vital sign variance, such as heart rate and respiration, sleep restlessness and bed occupancy status. The Bed Sensor can also be used in Foresite Patientcare for bed occupancy, if pressure mapping is not required with the Pressure Map Monitor.
In Foresite Eldercare for senior living environments, motion sensors are installed in different locations in the resident’s room to count motion, which is indicative of general activity level.
Depth image sensor
Mounted high on the wall or on the ceiling, the depth image sensor captures motion in 3D in Foresite Eldercare and Foresite Patientcare. If the individual falls, Foresite generates an alert. For post analysis, depth images “show” what happened, yet do not use any video technology and are fully HIPAA-compliant.
Pressure map monitor
This monitor in the shape of a fitted sheet for Foresite Patientcare works in combination with the depth image sensor to provide continuous fall-risk assessment and detect bed exits attempts. It also records the pressure of the patient’s skin against the sheet to calculate the probability of developing a pressure ulcer.
