Hospital participates in pressure ulcer prevention program

Leaf Patient Monitor is being piloted in El Camino Hospital in Mountain View, CA, with the hope of wirelessly monitoring the position, movement and activity of patients susceptible to pressure ulcers.

The Leaf Patient Monitor is made up of a small, lightweight wearable patient sensor that electronically monitors that individual's position and movements, the company said. Data is sent to the central monitoring stations or mobile devices so that patient position and movement status can easily be viewed. The system provides alerts when necessary and has been cleared by the FDA. El Camino has 443 beds.
