Adelaide, May 15, 2020 – South Australian manufacturer cura1has today officially launched its breakthrough patient monitoring system, ENSIGN. ENSIGN is a state of the art, non-invasive patient monitoring system that can help flatten the curve with respect to COVID-19 and help prevent the spread of any future virus. cura1 Managing Director, Frank Nardone, said that “after 5 years of research and development to create the proprietary technology that drives ENSIGN, we have launched the product right in the middle of a pandemic”. The new ENSIGN system can help flatten the curve and limit any future spread by displaying an array of key patient information to staff at a safe distance, which eliminates dozens of daily contacts between patient and staff. This ensures greater safety, improved efficiencies and higher quality of care in our HOSPITALS and AGED CARE FACILITIES. Staff receive timely information such as: ¥ Heart rate ¥ Respiratory rate ¥ In and out of bed confirmation ¥ Excessive movement / agitation ¥ Incontinence ¥ Turnover care - the security knowing that patients requiring regular turnover are not overlooked Mr Nardone added, “ENSIGN continuously monitors patients and residents, and will generate an alarm for immediate intervention should any critical parameter go outside of those set for an individual being monitored”. Medical staff / carers / the institution / family members / external medical practitioners can be alerted so that intervention will be effected immediately, keeping the medical staff and the patient safe by reducing contact until needed, which in turn will help flatten the curve.   Comprehensive data is continuously gathered and provided on each patient for medical and caring staff to monitor, maintain, manage and archive.
