What Is MedPad?
Notifies when a patient or loved one needs bedding changed
Smart technology IoMT devices are poised to change the face of healthcare. We improve quality of care by leveraging technology to support caregivers and patients. Our smart bedding system provides real time analytics to caregivers, taking out the guesswork and inefficiencies. Our wireless bed pad triggers notifications to caregivers and family members when bedding needs to be changed. We understand the challenges of providing for your loved one. We can help you respond to their needs while maintaining their dignity. Even when you can’t be there, MedPad is there to respond and protect. We are a company dedicated to helping families and caregivers understand and respond to incontinence through our patented smart bedding system
Realtime Analytics and Historical Data for Proof of Care
In the constantly evolving environment of healthcare in the US, we want to give you an easy tool to track incidents and the necessary protocol of linen changes for proper billing. Surveys are sometimes subjective, but the MedPad system will allow you to have independent verification of the timeliness of responses as well as the data necessary to easily provide support for each incident billed for each patient. When a MedPad becomes soiled, the timestamp is captured and a notification is sent. When the MedPad is exchanged, the timestamp is captured and the clean MedPad timestamp is captured. By improving the accuracy of data, we can give hospitals, long term care, and home health agencies the documented support that care is being provided in a reasonable amount of time, avoiding downstream costs such as re-hospitalizations and pressure ulcers which cause an estimated $9.1 -- $11.6 billion per year in the US.
Can dramatically reduce infections and sores from soiled bedding
Wounds and skin infections can quickly develop by prolonged exposure to the moist conditions created by incontinence. Pressure ulcers and incontinence associated dermatitis (IAD) are common injuries sustained from skin exposed to moisture, friction and pressure. Physical repercussions can include swelling, oozing, vesiculation, crusting and scaling. Skin breaks 4 times more easily with excess moisture than dry skin. Moisture from incontinence makes the skin weaker and more prone to infection, irritation and inflammation which can lead to sores and ulcers as fragile skin breaks down. By receiving notifications immediately, caregivers are able to change the bed pads and remove the environment which causes so many of the health concerns that give rise to additional medical issues and longer hospital stays.
Restores Dignity to Those Who Are Bed Bound
It is estimated that 10% to 35% of adults suffer from some form of incontinence. Despite the common nature of this condition, many caregivers observe the gradual loss of activity, comfort and privacy. Particularly for aging loved ones and patients, exposing vulnerable areas of the body to strangers every few hours can be a humiliating experience. The MedPad system allows both the patient and caregiver to stay connected so that they don’t have to ask for help, and you don’t have to conduct unneeded bedding checks. No one wants to see another person suffer from a preventable and treatable condition. MedPad can help you quickly respond and keep these high risk areas of the body clean and dry.
Eliminates unnecessary bedding checks and helps caregivers use their time more efficiently.
The demanding world of healthcare professionals and family caregivers requires strong support from the tools you use every day. The current minimum mobility standard requires that beds be manually checked every few hours. We want to give time back to you by avoiding unnecessary bed checks. Right now, it is likely that a patient or loved one may have an incident directly after the bedding is ‘checked’. This could result in a delay of several hours before soiled bed pads are changed. With the MedPad system, you are able to direct your attention to those who need your assistance directly upon an incident occurring. As our analytical capabilities grow, we hope to gain predictive data which will allow caregivers to get loved ones up before an incident occurs. As momma always said… work smarter not harder.
