EarlySense Announces Popular Science Award Win at Medica 2010
RAMAT GAN, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- EarlySense, developer of the EverOn® patient supervision system for hospital and post acute care, announced today it is a winner of a 2010 Popular Science Best of What's New award in the health category. EarlySense made the announcement today at Medica 2010 in Germany. EarlySense is part of the Israel Export & International Cooperation Institute exhibit located in hall 16, G40.
The EverOn System is an FDA and CE cleared, automatic, continuous, patient monitoring system, approved for use in hospitals and homes. The system activates the moment the patient enters the bed using a contact-free sensor that slips under the mattress and never touches the patient. The system records and documents cardiac, respiratory, and motion parameters for up to 36 patients at a time and alerts staff when thresholds are crossed, as well as if a patient needs turning to avoid pressure ulcers or is leaving the bed and is in danger of falling. Nurses are informed of patient status changes on the patient’s bed side monitor, at the nurse’s station, on their mobile phones and on a large screen display mounted in a prominent spot on the wall in the department.
“It is an honor to be a winner of this prestigious 2010 award and to be recognized for the positive contribution EverOn is making to patient care in hospitals across the U.S. The EverOn, through the early identification of warning signs, empowers clinicians to provide proactive, personalized care. Hospitals using the EverOn system achieve better clinical and economic outcomes. For these reasons, among others, EverOn will become a standard of care in hospitals. We are delighted that Popular Science recognizes this,” said Avner Halperin, CEO of EarlySense.
EarlySense’s EverOn will be featured along with other winners of the award in the December issue of Popular Science, the most widely read issue of the year since the debut of Best of What's New in 1987. Best of What’s New awards are presented to 100 new products and technologies in 11 categories: Automotive, Aviation & Space, Computing, Engineering, Gadgets, Green Tech, Home Entertainment, Security, Home Technology, Health and Recreation.
“For 23 years, Popular Science has honored the innovations that surprise and amaze us − those that make a positive impact on our world today and challenge our views of what’s possible in the future.” said Mark Jannot, Editor-in-Chief of Popular Science. “The Best of What’s New Award is the magazine’s top honor, and the 100 winners − chosen from among thousands of entrants − represent the highest level of achievement in their fields.”
