Improve Care

VitalSense has been designed to help prevent serious injury, reduce the risks of falls and detect health deterioration using a sensor installed beneath any mattress within any bed.

Smart Technology

VitalSense technology is based on fibre optics light attenuation measurement, meaning it is sensitive enough to monitor vitals such as heartbeat and respiration whilst alerting on movement and bed exits.

Fast Deployment

Designed to work within any bed, under any mattress, VitalSense keeps an eye on your resident without requiring wearables or equipment modifications. VitalSense is the only solution that works under existing mattresses and beds and requires no ongoing maintenance.

Intelligent Alerts

VitalSense is a cloud-based technology allowing insights into activity occurring across beds. Designed to scale with your organisation, a normal bed can become a smart bed within minutes providing heartbeat, breathing, movement, turning reminders and much more.

Discover Bed Sensor Technology Today

VitalSense has been designed with care providers in mind, supporting operations and staff efficiencies without having to replace or upgrade existing equipment.

Key Features

of VitalSense

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.

Monitors Vitals

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 and Discreet

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.

Noninvasive Technology

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.

Real-Time Activity Monitoring

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.

Rapid Deployment, Simplified Setup

VitalSense is installed within the bed below the mattress, allowing any standard bed to become a cloud-connected smart bed.

 

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.

Enhanced Reporting,

Provide Better Care

VitalSense is the latest intelligent pressure ulcer and fall risk management technology based on fibre optics and IoT

 

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.

Questions title image

Commonly Asked Questions

VitalSense is an easy to implement, revolutionary technology that is adding value within healthcare.

Do I have to replace existing equipment for VitalSense to work?

No. VitalSense has been designed to universally work under any mattress within any bed.

How does VitalSense connect to the cloud?

VitalSense connects to your facility wifi and checks into the VitalSense cloud.

Can VitalSense detect heart rate and respiratory in real-time?

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.

Can the sensor pad be cleaned?

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.

Do I need specific electrical requirements?

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.

Can SensFloor work within bathrooms?

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.

Are there any limitations to the size of the facility or zones that SensFloor can work in?

The sensor pads need to be located within the centre of the bed above the slats. We will support you during the install process.

What type of alerts can VitalSense report on?

Movement, bed exit, turning reminders and vital cores (heartbeat and respiratory) are the primary events VitalSense can report on.
