This video explains the problems with falls and how Ocuvera's technology seeks to actively prevent them by pushing the envelope in monitored care.
Every 25 seconds a patient falls in a hospital
That’s 3,456 falls every day
24,192 falls every week
and more than 1.2 million falls every year
Hospitals cite patient falls as a major problem, resulting in $6 billion in direct costs to those hospitals each year. Additionally, falls can cause patients physical harm, ranging from bruises and broken bones to even death.
While falls are a common and expensive problem, the current market technologies are often unsuccessful at preventing falls from occurring.
Current technologies are expensive, invasive and restrictive and don’t give healthcare professionals enough time to prevent an impending fall.
But Ocuvera provides nurses with real-time updates about a patient’s movements, and continually assesses the likelihood of a bed exit, predicting a fall before it happens.
Ocuvera is proactive, not reactive.
This solution utilizes state-of-the-art 3D cameras, coupled with ground-breaking Artificial Intelligence algorithms to create a “virtual nurse” that predict a patient’s intent based on their pattern of movement.
Throughout the development of our technology, we consulted with nurses, physical therapists, insurers and hospital researchers from across the country; ensuring that Ocuvera’s completely new approach will help solve the problem of falls.
