Title
(EN) PRESSURE SENSING MEDICAL DEVICE SYSTEM FOR REMOTE PATIENT MONITORING AND PREVENTION OF PRESSURE ULCERS
(FR) SYSTÈME DE DISPOSITIF MÉDICAL DE DÉTECTION DE PRESSION POUR UNE SURVEILLANCE DE PATIENT À DISTANCE ET UNE PRÉVENTION DE PLAIES DE PRESSION
Abstract
(EN)
A patient movement monitoring system comprising sensing hardware (100) which can be in the form of a sheet or planar member that is placed under a patient who may be susceptible to pressure ulcers due to lack of movement. The sensing hardware can comprise two or more energy harvesting devices (102) with each energy harvesting device (102) being configured to output a current in response to detected patient movement. Each energy harvesting device (102) can comprise a piezoelectric device. The system can also comprise a wirelesss transmitter (105) that can be powered by at least one of the currents and on receipt of said currents transmits at least one data packet representative of the detected movement, a network that communicates the respective currents from the energy harvesting devices to the wireless transmitter (105) and a remote receiving device (106) or computer running sensing software (108) that processes the at least one data packet and provides an output of said data for analysis.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système de surveillance de mouvement de patient, comprenant un matériel de détection (100) qui peut être sous la forme d'une feuille ou d'un élément plan qui est placé sous un patient qui peut être exposé à des plaies de pression en raison d'un manque de mouvement. Le matériel de détection peut comprendre au moins deux dispositifs de collecte d'énergie (102), chaque dispositif de collecte d'énergie (102) étant configuré pour distribuer un courant en réponse à un mouvement de patient détecté. Chaque dispositif de collecte d'énergie (102) peut comprendre un dispositif piézoélectrique. Le système peut également comprendre un émetteur sans fil (105) qui peut être alimenté par au moins l'un des courants et, une fois lesdits courants reçus, transmet au moins un paquet de données représentant le mouvement détecté, un réseau qui communique les courants respectifs des dispositifs de collecte d'énergie à l'émetteur sans fil (105), et un dispositif de réception à distance (106) ou un logiciel de détection de fonctionnement d'ordinateur (108) qui traite le ou les paquets de données et fournit une sortie desdites données pour une analyse.
