Pressure injuries are common, preventable, and extremely unpleasant for patients to endure. Pressure injuries are particularly prevalent among certain populations, such as seniors, patients in palliative care, patients with spinal injuries, and patients in long term care. With a prevalence of 26% of hospitalized Ontario patients; the problem is significant, but the solutions are limited. Once developed, pressure ulcers are difficult to treat and slow to heal. With treatment costs upwards of $128,000 and an average of $48,000; the duality of the problem is evident. This a 15 billion dollar problem that plaques our health care institutions, yearly, in North America. If you couldn't think this problem is bad enough 7 people die from them every hour. Pressure injuries are also tremendously expensive and time intensive for health care providers to treat. Despite being such a serious issue, data on pressure injuries can be inconsistent, and data for particular regions can be hard to find at all. But the status quo need not continue.
Meet Curiato’s Ceylon Pressure Redistribution System.Real time insights on patient care, reactive and proactive pressure redistribution system tailored for each patient, paperless tracking of bedsore data. Curiato has come up with a revolutionary way of preventing pressure injuries through our pressure redistribution system, called Ceylon systems. A combination of both a smart mattress and bedsore management interface, which is connected to a Patient Information Web Portal (PIWP). The mattress allows for targeted pressure redistribution for staff and actively detects potential bedsores. While preventing bedsores, our interface, provides valuable data to caregivers and families so they can take a more informed action. The map can then be provided to related devices using IoT-incorporated cloud technology. The Ceylon system mattress uses biometrics, processed by our machine learning algorithms, to plan a unique pressure redistribution pattern, through the low-pressure air pockets. This will not only allow for maximal comfort for the patient, but also provide care givers, occupational therapist and family members with real time updates on the patient’s condition. This will enable administrators to allocate their resources most efficiently, to save money and ultimately improve patient care. And save 7 deaths every hour.
As the senior population expands over the next several years, achieving efficiency in pressure ulcer prevention is absolutely critical for healthcare providers. Ceylon Systems will be the first patented smart mattress bedsore prevention system that will be able to predict and adjust to high-risk bedsore zones on its own. Our technology will centralize the data collection process and allow for a streamlined analysis, with instantaneous preventative responses from our pressure redistribution system. This will enable administrators to allocate their resources most efficiently and ultimately improve patient care. As the senior population expands over the next several years, achieving efficiency in pressure ulcer prevention is absolutely critical for healthcare providers. We have the ability to sharply reduce the incidence rate of pressure injuries, cut healthcare expenditures, reduce nurse fatigue, and improve communication channels between patient support structures.
