Nurse assist nominated for the GIT Sicherheit award

Mobotix + Kepler: c71 NurseAssist – powered by Kepler Vision Technologies – GSA25 Finalist

Late recognition of falls from bed is a major risk in the healthcare industry. In 6 out of 7 falls with conventional systems with a manual alarm button, someone is usually on the scene only after 5 minutes.

The MOBOTIX c71 NurseAssist solution is based on a 360° camera with a 4K Day&Night sensor, mounted on the ceiling and connected to a nurse call system. Unlike a surveillance camera, the c71 works only as a sensor with integrated analysis algorithms to automatically detect falls or bed abandonment while alerting the caregiver. The system recognizes incidents using live images without storing, displaying or sending them to a server (data protection compliant solution).

This innovative and extremely easy-to-implement application for healthcare is the result of a collaboration between MOBOTIX and the Dutch company Kepler Vision Technologies, which specializes in AI-based software solutions for healthcare and nursing.
Radar-based systems are unable to distinguish objects such as a fluttering curtain or a toppled bedspread from falls. The AI-based intelligence of the MOBOTIX c71 NurseAssist solution prevents 99% of these false alarms.

The system sends a message within 30 seconds of a fall and also prevents accidents by recognizing and notifying when the patient leaves the bed.

Lipsynchronous intercom via integrated high-quality audio function allows quick assessment of any alarm.

The decentralized MOBOTIX system can also be used in full compliance with data protection regulations without the need to generate or transmit a video image.
The NurseAssist status panel, which can also be used via MOBOTIX HUB plug-ins, offers an additional, graphically displayed nurse call solution. In the healthcare facility, the current status of residents in all rooms equipped with c71 NurseAssist sensors is displayed in color. This gives the staff responsible a quick overview and facilitates organization. This means that “silent checks” can be performed without physically entering the rooms – for undisturbed care.
