Austco – Saving time and money with legacy systems through Framework

Bespoke panels that allow clean replacement of legacy systems whilst ensuring HTM compliance is something Austco has been offering for many years. This means that we can fit the products flush into existing medical trunking as well as wall installations where the previous product may be much larger than our microphone units. This reduces the time and cost of rework and makes replacement as simple and cost-effective as possible. In addition, we are now part of the NOE CPC framework contract for security services (Lot 3: Nurse Call Systems), which means that systems can be replaced without having to go out to tender. And it’s not just the trusts that are members of the NOE CPC that can benefit, but any NHS Trust.

Caretronic – Smartphone app for healthcare staff

iNurse is an advanced mobile app for smartphones aimed at healthcare staff in hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare facilities. For staff, the app is a replacement for a DECT phone or pager. Healthcare staff can respond to emergency calls via iNurse, even if they are not present at the nurses’ station. The iNurse mobile app provides an overview of the staff present and the ability to make an emergency call between staff who can communicate without a SIM card. In addition, iNurse offers unique features (notifications, etc.) that can be customized and personalized, making iNurse the most versatile mobile app for the healthcare market.

In emergency situations, e.g. when resuscitating patients, time is of the essence. With the DoctorCall smartphone app, the resuscitation team can be called at the touch of a button to provide the emergency patient with medical treatment as quickly as possible.

The second product offered by the Slovenian company is a wireless IP nurse call system. The NurseCare IP nurse call system can also be installed as a wireless system. All call points in the room can be wireless, as well as various sensors and wristbands for patients, residents or staff. The wristbands offer many functions such as location tracking, fall detection and much more.

The unique solution on the market: it also includes the NurseCare wireless hand transmitter, which also serves as a fall sensor. This means that a resident can call for help by pressing the button on the hand transmitter, while in the event of a fall, the alarm is simultaneously triggered and the patient’s location is transmitted to ensure a rapid response.

Provides fall detection: Along with the nurse call system, we also offer a fall prevention system with advanced technology to alert caregivers to crisis situations that can result in patient falls.

IndigoCare – iCall fits into any environment

IndigoCare, part of the Essec Group founded in 1977, developed the world’s first full IP Nursecall system back in 2007. Its architecture ensures flexibility. Thanks to its topology, iCall can be used in new and existing buildings, and in most cases the existing old cabling can be used.

EIZO – First 4K recorder for archiving

EIZO launches its first 4K medical recorder for archiving videos from endoscopy, microsurgery and other high-precision procedures. The medical recorder records videos and still images from endoscopy, microsurgery or surgical cameras in high-quality 4K UHD resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels) and 60 fps (frames per second) for archiving.

EIZO is also launching the first large-format 4K UHD monitor with 3D image display for endoscopy and the operating room. The CuratOR EX4342-3D is EIZO’s first large-format monitor with 4K UHD (3840 x 2160 pixels) and 3D image display for endoscopy, microsurgery and other high-precision procedures. The monitor has a large 43″ screen and can also be securely attached to medical equipment trolleys.

Nobi – The world’s smartest light will also monitor coughing behavior around the clock from the end of 2023

The latest version of the intelligent Nobi light will soon also be able to monitor coughing behavior around the clock.

Ageing tsunami makes AgeTech indispensable

A fifth of the European population is over 65 years old. By 2040, this will be a quarter of the population. Therefore, now more than ever, technology plays an important role in maintaining the quality of care for the elderly. Solutions such as fall detection, sensors, call systems and others are easing the burden on today’s hard-pressed nursing staff.

Detecting, preventing and predicting falls thanks to AI

The intelligent Nobi light already uses AI to detect falls and call for help immediately. This means that care staff or relatives can always act quickly. The best help is, of course, prevention. The Nobi light not only detects falls, but also helps to prevent them. For example, it automatically provides light for residents when they get up at night. As falls often happen at night on the way to or in the bathroom, Nobi informs care staff via a simple dashboard when residents get out of bed. This enables them to intervene proactively and help prevent falls. Later this year, Nobi will also be able to detect unusual coughing and then call for help in an emergency.

The sound quality has also been further optimized in the latest model of the light. This is a significant upgrade, as quick and clear communication between the elderly and senior citizens and their carer or trusted person is very important after an accident. This has been made possible by:

  • Noise canceling technology: This technology filters out distracting background noise, such as from a TV screen
  • Beamforming software processing: This technology makes it possible to listen specifically to the place where someone has fallen.

Pironex – ellio: the intelligent home emergency call

The ellio product presented at Medica is based on pironex’s expertise in medical device development and uses the latest technical possibilities. The innovative ellio solution is designed for the elderly care environment and consists of native apps for Android or iOS and a small IoT device with AI. Various sensors for recording environmental parameters have been integrated into the ellio device. Deviations in the living environment of people living alone are recorded and evaluated on the basis of embedded AI. If there are anomalies, possible deviations from the regular daily routine of people living alone, something may have happened in the household of the person living alone.

Only in this case are relatives informed by app and can intervene to help. The ellio solution is the smart alternative to the familiar emergency call buttons. Because when it comes down to it, the person affected cannot press a button. ellio solves the problem, provides information in an emergency and connects families in everyday life.

PYRESCOM SAS – Protection and monitoring of AEDs

Cardiac and respiratory arrest, commonly known as “sudden death”, is the most common cause of death in developed countries. To increase survival rates, the provision of publicly accessible automated external defibrillators (AEDs) is a solution promoted by health authorities. AEDs are medical devices and must be installed under the recommended conditions, in particular in compliance with the temperature range

The AIVIA cabinets have been developed to facilitate access to the AED. The AIVIA solution complements AEDs by ensuring that they are in good working order, in the right environment and with features tailored to your needs.

From a simple AED cabinet to a complete terminal that can be set up outdoors and has functions such as heating, AED status monitoring, emergency call and even photo monitoring, the AIVIA product line offers a solution tailored to your needs.

Fraunhofer Society for the Advancement of Applied Research e.V. – Checking medication for authenticity via smartphone

Consumers often wonder whether medicines or medical products from online retailers are genuine or counterfeit. The tamper-proof SmartID barcode system makes it possible for anyone to check the authenticity of a product using a smartphone – provided the manufacturers use SmartID. Authentication takes place without access to a database. SmartID was developed by a consortium of three Fraunhofer Institutes. The SmartID demonstrator is the result of a three-year project and will be presented at MEDICA 2023 in Hall 3, Stand E74.
