Xetal NV secures supplier status to provide bed monitoring system to Azienda Ospedaliera di Perugia, one of the most renown hospitals in Italy.
Starting form December 2015, Xetal will be providing its professional @bed monitoring systems that will help further improving on reducing fall risks. This comes as a result from positive tests the Azienda Ospedaliera di Perugia has held in the course of 2015 in collaboration with SeeingSmart, exclusive partner of Xetal for Italy.
The Xetal @Bed system is a professional bed monitoring system capable to reliably sense when a person is getting out or getting in bed unassisted without the need for cameras or devices to be worn. It is the result of an 18 months collaboration with two leading Belgian hospitals focused on reliability, durability and effective fall risk reduction.
The system is available as of December 2015 in Belgium directly from Xetal and in Italy via Seeing Smart. It will be available in UK and Ireland as of January 2016 via Delta Medical International. It will be made available to other regions in due course of 2016.

Xetal have developed kinsei: an innovative indoor people localisation technology that does not require a person wearing or carrying any type of device or phone. Kinsei relies on proprietary positioning sensors placed on walls, beds or door frames to detect and track of one or more people with an accuracy of about 30cm. 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.
