old technology

Todays vital sign monitoring solutions are limiting.

  • Physical contact required to gather data
  • Contact can be invasive and uncomfortable for the user
  • Connection can be easily lost when the user is moving or sleeping
  • Data can be compromised by the innate shortcomings of this method of vital sign monitoring

New technology

Why DistaSense®

1

Patented technology allows for touchless vital sign monitoring

2

Comparable data accuracy to current methods of vital sign monitoring

3

Can be integrated into beds, adhesive patches or any other type of smart clothing/wearable

"This novel technology has the capability of picking up multiple physiological parameters at once (heart rate, tidal volume, and breathing characteristics). The application of machine learning to this rich measurement of physiological parameters will permit a new level of assessment that could prove to be a very useful tool and enable a new degree of continuous monitoring."

Importance of Respiration

A broad 2016 controlled study concluded – “that an increased respiratory rate was an important predictor for clinical deterioration…in patients with heterogeneous medical conditions.” 1

Approximately 70% of in‐hospital cardiac arrest patients have some change in vital signs 6–8 hours prior to arrest with abnormalities of respiration being the most commonly documented change. 2,3
