VitalSense has been designed with care providers in mind, supporting operations and staff efficiencies without having to replace or upgrade existing equipment.
Now support staff can monitor any bed equipped with VitalSense to gain a holistic view of all activity occurring within beds across ward’s, homes or facilities.
VitalSense is a noninvasive resident monitoring sensor technology designed to monitor vitals and in-bed activity from the cloud. Based on fibre optic attenuation measurements, a sensor is placed under the bed mattress which is connected to a centralised cloud-managed dashboard for easy monitoring and alerting.
VitalSense is sensitive yet accurate enough to measure the vitals of any residents sleeping within the bed. Monitoring heart rate and respiratory is recorded to enable easy alerts and reports whilst providing better care.
Hidden away out of sight, the sensor pad is installed below the mattress on top of the bed slats with a small controller installed behind or below the bed head. VitalSense cannot be seen or felt and requires only a power cable to operate.
Supporting Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) practices by allowing residents to be monitored in real-time without the need for cameras, motion sensors or other invasive hardware, restoring freedom and privacy whilst still receiving the best care.
VitalSense enables care organisations to view real-time activity occurring within the bed. All activity is recorded and alerted based on individual needs, this includes movements, bed exit, supine turning reminders and vitals based on custom thresholds.
VitalSense keeps an eye on every resident 24/7 so your nurses can be more productive whilst providing additional personal care. By simply connecting our sensor to the bed and the organisation’s wifi, you will be able to view complete coverage of all smart beds across the wards. Events and actions are easily managed from the intuitive VitalSense dashboard that can be used on any computer or smart device.
With a simplified installation process, VitalSense provides a range of reporting and logging capabilities. From time logged, response rates and event clearance, management can oversee compliance through easy to use reporting features.
Identify and analyse resident activity within the bed during normal sleep cycles or during restless nights.
Monitor resident vitals from the cloud and set alert thresholds when heart rate or respiratory levels drop low or high.
Improve noninvasive behavioural workforce planning through real-time resident monitoring whilst maintaining resident privacy.
Gain insights into who is and isn’t in bed, across the ward from the cloud. Report on movement, bed exit, vitals and turning reminders.
Contribute to legal compliance by responding to critical events that could adversely affect statutory legal obligations.
VitalSense works within existing beds including the mattress. Limited wiring means only power is required and wifi connectivity.
Through optimised workflow, high impact – long last sensor technology that works within the cloud.
Real-time resident alerting for movement, bed exit, ulcer management and vital on android or web browser devices.
Respond to critical alerts through real-time monitoring, resulting in increased resident care and reduction in serious injury.
Sleep and associated data are recorded for review to ensure reporting is easily obtainable across all beds.
VitalSense has been designed from the ground up to integrate with third-party systems to support the connected world of devices. VitalSense is the first IoT bed sensor technology designed to provide customisation of application due to inbuilt API capability.
For large projects, VitalSense may be able to connect and drive alerts through your facility core systems.
Our technologies are contributing to workflow optimisation, assessment of health, reporting and event logging whilst introducing liability management, patient monitoring and facility security. Our products will continue to evolve and offer new features through our SYNO Pulse service.
VitalSense represents our core strategy of empowering organisations with sensor technology to provide new levels of business performance, our solutions are versatile, easy to use yet introduce key new benefits.
SensFloor® by SYNO Global offers the latest in innovation by continuously evolving the product through customer feedback, the latest technology trends and ongoing improvement initiatives. Our customers realise many benefits by introducing SensFloor® by SYNO Global into existing and new facilities.
VitalSense can connect to facility core systems such as nurse call and building management, allowing alerts and event to be pushed.
VitalSense only requires a normal power plug to power a device fixed to the underside of each bed in which it’s installed.
VitalSense is an IoT driven technology designed to be globally deployed whilst reducing hardware requirements and costs.
VitalSense allows care staff to respond to events occurring within the beds based on individual thresholds and requirements.
VitalSense connects to the cloud via inbuilt wifi in every controller, enabling any bed to become a smart bed.
View and analyse VitalSense in real time thanks to our web-based administration software, including data trending.
From heart rate and respiratory, movement, bed exit and pressure ulcer turning reminders, VitalSense keeps a watchful eye.
Vitalsense can monitor beds inside and outside of facilities, broken up into wards, levels or building.
No. VitalSense has been designed to universally work under any mattress within any bed.
VitalSense connects to your facility wifi and checks into the VitalSense cloud.
Yes, but the system has not been designed for this purpose. VitalSense has been designed to monitor vitals during normal sleep cycles and reports on such when thresholds have been reached.
Yes. The sensor pad can be easily cleaned by normal methods. However, consider the pad sits below the mattress, there should be no need to clean often.
No. SensFloor® by SYNO Global has been designed to minimise cabling and electronic requirement. In fact our solution is the only technology on the market where the electronics have been built into the underlay, unlike other systems where wiring and electronics require installation into skirting boards.
No. VitalSense operates on low voltage and plugs into a normal wall socket for power. Some healthcare beds have USB ports that can provide power to the controller.
The sensor pads need to be located within the centre of the bed above the slats. We will support you during the install process.
Movement, bed exit, turning reminders and vital cores (heartbeat and respiratory) are the primary events VitalSense can report on.
