COVID-19 has forced the senior care industry to find new and innovative ways to keep seniors in care homes safe when staff shortages and burnout are realities.
“Sleepsense offers an additional layer of safety for residents.Jessica YangCEO, Tochtech
It provides continuous monitoring to augment the in-person checks that staff in senior care are required to conduct throughout the night, especially when staffing levels are low.”
What is Toch Sleepsense?
- In and out of bed status
- Not returning to bed status
- Heart rate
- Breathing rate
- Quality of sleep (different stages of sleep)
Toch Sleepsense alerts caregivers if a senior is not in bed or a health risk is detected allowing caregivers to intervene and avert a potential fall or serious medical emergency. Notifications and alters are sent to smartphones or can be integrated with nurse call systems.
Placed under the frame of the bed, Toch Sleepsense is uniquely designed to detect body movement and vital signs no matter where the sleeper is positioned.
Toch Sleepsense was recently awarded the 2020 AGE-WELL National Impact Challenge Award.
