Toch Sleepsense is an innovative bed sensor that uses high-precision sensors and our algorithm technology to provide real time information on:
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.
The Next Generation Bed Alarm
The Toch Sleepsense gives care providers peace of mind by addressing the most critical areas of senior safety – fall prevention and health emergency alerts.
“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 for timely intervention
- Heart rate and breathing rate
- Sleep assessment and report
- Central monitoring and business dashboard
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 alerts 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.
What Our Customers Are Saying
…many residents do not sleep through the night. Toch Sleepsense would be beneficial during the overnights when there is substantially less staff
There is so much opportunity for human error. Toch Sleepsense brings peace of mind that residents are well cared for through the night
I am very impressed with the information we can receive from using Sleepsense. I still can’t understand how it can do so much and be so unintrusive to the seniors who have been able to benefit from Sleepsense. We have been able to analyze data to have fulsome discussions about sleep patterns, quality of sleep, medications that may require review, toileting patterns and safety risks.
To be perfectly honest, the technology brought to Langley Lodge via Sleepsense is nothing short of mind-blowing. It still seems difficult to comprehend how this small square pad placed under a bed leg can provide us with so much information – information that can be used to address falls, sleep issues, and indirectly impact behaviors and skin breakdown by adjusting care plans and adding interventions. Current practices try to accomplish this through conventional methods and a lot of guesswork, rely on the effective assessments of many people and often fall short of the mark. With the data gathered through Sleepsense, I believe we are far better placed in ensuring safety and enhanced care in a more timely manner.
It is truly amazing how much data we can access while not impeding our seniors that can contribute to the care of our residents and assist our evening and night staff in monitoring those residents who may require additional assistance. Sleepsense will help us to ensure resources are utilized in the most efficient and effective manner in relation to sleep and safety. I am hopeful with time we will see a reduction in falls, and better quality sleep for our residents. Those are two powerful indicators of seniors well-being and health.
Every time we went to see Mom, we guessed her sleep status from her reactions, because poor sleep affects her daytime a lot. But she couldn't tell us clearly. The Sleepsense reports told us exactly what happened through the nights, its very informative, accurate and matched our observations exactly, and in so much details. This is very useful for us. And now care team can use the right information to help her. We really like that care team is notified in real-time of her in/out of bed status and can support her. We are excited to be part of the trial.
Toch Sleepsense is feature rich compared to the competition
Frank Engleman in his blog series ‘Problems and DIY Technology Solutions’ on the challenges faced by older adults notes that non-wearable sleep trackers can be useful for family members wishing to track changes in their loved one’s sleep patterns. Engleman in his review compares Beautyrest Sleeptracker, Withings Sleep and Toch Sleepsense, and found that “while all three products work, Toch Sleepsense has some extra features which I found to be useful”.
