We are pleased to announce that Sensium Healthcare will be sending a delegation to the second UK Health Informatics Forum. Sensium will be making full use of this unique platform by contributing a speaker and showcasing their futuristic solutions in UKHIF’s demonstration space. Sensium Healthcare is a division of Toumaz Group PLC and was created to develop and commercialise unique and low powered wireless healthcare technology, including ‘SensiumVitals®’ which will be demonstrated at UKHIF.
SensiumVitals® is an ultra-low power wireless system that monitors the vital signs of patients in general wards or A&E departments. The light-weight, single use patches monitor the patient’s heart-rate, respiration rate and temperature every two minutes. The vital signs data is then wirelessly communicated to nurses via a bridge to the nurse station or web-enabled portable devices. There are many benefits to this interesting creation, in particular, the early warning of patient deterioration which allows for faster intervention and hence shorter stays in hospital. The wireless nature of the device also aids patient mobility – another important factors in helping to speed recovery. SensiumVitals® is a clear example of the innovative solutions the private sector brings to the table at the UK Health Informatics Forum.
Commenting on Sensium Healthcare’s UKHIF participation, Steve Atkinson, Senior Vice President and General Manager, said “The carefully tailored environment at the UK Health Informatics Forum is an excellent opportunity to educate a wide range of end users to the kind of technology available to them. Sensium Healthcare is a pioneer in creating wireless and digital technology to aid the health sector and we look forward to that technology being involved in the agenda for the forum.”
