When such an accurate position information is used together with knowledge about the room itself, it is possible to understand what is happening in the room, what people are doing and determine what is likely to happen next. kinsei does not use cameras, audio or any other identification technology making it the perfect technology for when respect for personal privacy is a must.

Delta Medical to distribute @bed in UK, Ireland & Mexico

Delta Medical to distribute @bed in UK, Ireland & Mexico

Xetal nv and Delta Medical International (DMI) have agreed in a partnership that gives DMI the role of exclusive distributor for the UK, Ireland and Mexico for the @bed product line.  It is anticipated that DMI will also distribute the product in other regions in the near future, working with its established international partners.

The number of patients admitted to hospital or in nursing care with dementia or in a confused state is increasing. As life expectancy increases the percentage of elderly patients who are unsteady on their feet rises in proportion. In the UK the National Institute for Health & Care Excellence (NICE) and the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) have both identified this as a significant problem.  The RCP’s 2015 Audit Report noted that there were over 240,000 inpatient falls reported by NHS Trusts annually. The impact of NHS budget constraints on hospital staffing levels and workloads can often make constant supervision of all patients difficult. This inevitably leads to higher incidence of accidents as patients try to leave their beds unaided.

The cost to hospitals and care homes following patient falls, especially where fractures ensue, are considerable. The RCP reported that the cost to the NHS of inpatient falls in 2007 was over £15 million and is believed to be even greater now. The impact on the individual can be dramatic in both the short and longer term and avoiding falls in this population of vulnerable patients is essential for them, their family and the healthcare provider.

The Xetal product is able to detect when a patient is moving in a way that indicates they are preparing to get out of their bed.  Importantly, the system can also detect if a carer is present, avoiding the nuisance of false alarms.  This unique combination ensures that alerts are reliably provided in good time.

DMI Managing Director, Nick Bettles, said: “This product is a ground-breaking invention.  The cost to a healthcare provider if a single patient sustains a fracture due to a fall typically far outweighs the installation of the Xetal system hospital-wide for all at-risk patients.  There are further significant potential savings by reducing the costs of litigation and insurance costs.  With an ever-increasing number of vulnerable patients in hospitals and nursing or care homes we believe this system can deliver incredible benefits to healthcare providers. Hospitals could also consider this as part of a multifactorial intervention process as defined in NICE CG161.”

Xetal Managing Director, Francesco Pessolano, said: “We are excited to work with DMI. Their experience in the care sector will be a key success factor for Xetal in UK, Ireland and Mexico. We also believe DMI and its partners can help us bringing our @bed product to other regions and provide key feedback on future medical usages our technology.”
