  • Publication number: 20190091074
    Abstract: An incontinence detection system monitors an area for moisture events and wirelessly transmits moisture-related information to one or more notification devices. The system has a pad that includes a substrate and one or more sensors supported by the substrate. The sensor(s) emit wireless signals indicative of the moisture-related information. A sensor event communication system forwards the sensor signals to another device, such as a notification device. Portions of the system are included in a patient support apparatus, such as a bed.

  • Patent number: 9700247
    Abstract: A patient support apparatus includes one or more readers and/or sensing devices to receive data that can be use to verify the identity of persons or objects, such as patients, caregivers, and medications. The sensing devices may include, for example, a biometric sensor, a physiological sensor, a bar code reader, a camera, a microphone, or a combination thereof. The patient support apparatus may use identity verification information obtained from these devices for a number of different purposes, including, for example, managing the delivery of therapy, medication, or treatment to a patient associated with the patient support apparatus.

  • Publication number: 20170135884
    Abstract: Embodiments provide a person support system including support pads having cooling features. According to one embodiment, a person support system may include a longitudinal frame comprising at least one side rail. A support pad may be positioned on the longitudinal frame. The support pad may comprise a thermally conductive core portion comprising a support matrix and at least one thermally conductive element. A cooling source may be thermally coupled to the thermally conductive core portion through the side rail with a connector comprising thermally conductive fibers. The cooling source may draw heat from the thermally conductive core portion through the at least one thermally conductive element and the thermally conductive fibers of the connector thereby cooling at least the thermally conductive core portion of the support pad.

  • Publication number: 20170119285
    Abstract: Systems and methods for determining and tracking a positioning of a subject and displaying an image of a model of a subject are disclosed. A system includes a plurality of thermal markers, one or more thermal imaging devices arranged to capture baseline and updated infrared images of the surface and the thermal markers, and a computing device communicatively coupled to the thermal imaging devices. A first thermal marker is arranged at a first location relative to the surface. The computing device receives the baseline and updated infrared images and determines a corrective movement for at least one of the subject and the surface to align the thermal markers in the updated infrared image with the thermal markers in the baseline infrared image based on a location of the thermal markers in the baseline infrared image and a location of the thermal markers in the updated infrared image.

  • Publication number: 20160374847
    Abstract: A protective dressing includes an outer dressing and an adhesive layer. The outer dressing includes an opening and a cavity sized to receive a phase-change material (PCM) insert inserted through the opening. The adhesive layer is configured to adhere to a patient's skin surrounding an anatomic site. When adhered to the patient's skin, the PCM insert modifies the patient's skin at the anatomic site. The PCM insert may be removed and replaced with another PCM insert. For example, a warm PCM insert may be replaced with a refrigerated PCM insert. The opening of the outer dressing may be self-sealing. The opening of the outer dressing may be sealed with an upper layer dressing coupled to the PCM cooling insert.
