A wearable platform for remote patient monitoring of the vitals clinicians require to assess a patient
"We've developed a wearable device that monitors vital signs continuously. Our devices are small, thin, flexible, unobtrusive, they're also waterproof, and disposable," said Werner Vorster, CEO and co-founder of Vitls. "Disposability is nice because they don't have to be recharged and they don't have to be sterilized either."
The device is worn on the chest and are currently developed to monitor SpO2, heart rate (and heart rate variability), body temperature, and respiratory rate.
Vorster said the technology is currently FDA-cleared for use in patients ages 2 and up, which is noteworthy because most wearables are currently not cleared for use in patients under age 18, he said.
Vorster also said it is the only device designed to measure this particular combination of vital signs along with body temperature in a single formfactor.
