Patient Bed Monitoring

Pressure data for pressure ulcer/injury prevention

One factor in an appropriate strategy for the prevention of pressure ulcers is a knowledge-based patient turn regimen that effectively relieves the localized pressure before the skin’s integrity is breached, and the wound begins to form. But without the ability to see where those pressures exist, there is no way to know for sure how best to adjust the patient’s position, or whether the patient move has relieved the elevated pressure and allowed the tissue to re-oxygenate.

The ForeSite PT patient turn system allows caregivers to continually monitor body surface pressures that are a primary cause of decubitus ulcers, and provides the information they need to execute an effective patient turn strategy.

The ForeSite PT System

The ForeSite PT system consists of a fitted mattress cover embedded with thousands of sensor cells that continuously measure the patient’s body surface pressures, and a touch screen monitor that displays real-time images of elevated pressures. ForeSite PT’s software displays pressure markers that clearly identify areas of the body that have been under sustained pressure. The patient turn clock tracks the time since the last reposition, visually notifying the clinician that it’s time to adjust the patient’s body position.

  • Provides information staff needs to make informed patient care decisions

  • Helps to assure compliance with turn guidelines

  • Pressure markers identify areas of sustained pressure

  • Real-time images of body surface pressures provide confirmation that pressures have been relieved

  • Record data to support research

Superior and user-friendly imaging software

The system’s user-friendly single screen software requires minimal training and provides simple, easy to read visual pressure images, persistent pressure indicators and recent turn history. Advanced analysis tools to support research projects and clinical trials are available.

DEFINING PRESSURE SENSOR ACCURACY

Sleeping on a mattress that does not provide proper support and comfort can reduce sleep quality. Caused by difficulty falling or staying asleep has negative effects on all major systems in the body impacting energy, mood, concentration and overall health.

Finding the right  one is hard for consumers today. The lack of proper rest can cause anxiety, depression, difficulty concentrating, irritability, weight gain and impaired performance. 

FACTORY CALIBRATION

Maintains calibration for up to 5 years.

ULTRA THIN <1mm

Flexible, and conforms to surfaces with minimal interference.

ADVANCED FUNCTIONALITY

Sensors and software for clinical seating evaluation hospital bed and OR surface monitoring.

ACCURATE & REPEATABLE

3% or less full scale error after 100,000 loading cycles.
