2018 Best IoT Healthcare Wearable Device Awarded to the VitalPatch biosensor
San Jose, Calif. — June 06, 2018 — 7:00 a.m. PT — VitalConnect®, Inc., a leader in wearable biosensor technology for wireless monitoring in hospital and remote patient populations, is excited to announce that it is the recipient of this year’s MedTech Breakthrough award as the Best IoT Healthcare Wearable Device for the VitalPatch® biosensor. The judges, all senior-level health and medical technology professionals, chose the VitalPatch biosensor as the winner due to its superior technological capabilities and the potential enhancements it can can bring to patient care.
The clinical-grade VitalPatch biosensor is the industry’s smallest and lightest wearable biosensor that tracks eight different physiological measurements continuously and in real-time. The eight patient measurements include: single-lead ECG (electrocardiography), heart rate, heart rate variability, respiratory rate, R-R interval, skin temperature, body posture (including fall detection), and activity (steps). By combining the most sophisticated biosensor with the pre-eminent end-to-end Vista Solution platform, VitalConnect enables unprecedented insight into patient health. VitalConnect is being used in both hospitals and home monitoring programs in the U.S, including Mercy Virtual (St. Louis) and Brigham & Women’s (Boston).
“VitalConnect is committed to improving patient care and enabling nurses and physicians to have real-time insight into their patients’ health and well-being,” said Dr. Nersi Nazari, CEO and founder, VitalConnect. “We are honored to receive this award which recognizes our drive toward a more efficient and effective healthcare technology solution.”
