Visi Mobile System for Real Time Wireless In-Hospital Vital Signs Monitoring

Eastman Chemical Company, DD Studio, PolyOne and Phillips Plastics have teamed up to create a vitals monitoring device for Sotera Wireless. The ViSi Mobile will measure blood pressure and heart rate, and it will be chemically resistant and waterproof.

The ViSi Mobile™ system is composed of a wireless device that straps to a patient’s arm to monitor vital signs, such as blood pressure and heart rate; a monitoring device to keep clinicians connected to patients’ information; and a charging station.

The device’s lens, housing, printed circuit board assembly and connectors are made with Eastman Tritan™ copolyester MX711. The cold-swaging ability of Tritan allows for fit and press assembly of the device, which offers a tight, smooth, continuous fit between parts; allows for joining parts without the use of chemicals, adhesives or mechanical fasteners; and saves energy. By utilizing Tritan, the device features superior resistance to chemicals used in disinfectants and cleansers — without cracking or crazing. The material also exceeded durability requirements, which is particularly valuable in mobile devices that are used frequently or could be dropped or damaged should a patient fall.

To protect the device from water and fluids found in the hospital environment, it had to meet IPX7 requirements of withstanding water submersion for 60 minutes at a depth of 1 meter. DD Studio relied on compatibility samples and testing results from PolyOne to select GLS Versaflex™ OM 3060 TPE. It successfully adheres to the Eastman Tritan™ copolyester substrate to seal the device housing, including speaker port and microphone, from water seepage and protect internal electronics.

Sotera Wireless introduces the ViSi Mobile System, a platform for comprehensive vital signs monitoring that is designed to keep clinicians connected to their patients, whether in or out of bed, or while in transport – “monitoring in motion.” Featuring comfortable body-worn sensors that allow for freedom of movement, the system enables highly accurate, continuous monitoring of all vital signs.

The ViSi Mobile System is able to measure and display all core vital signs (Blood Pressure, Heart Rate / Pulse Rate, 3-lead or 5-lead ECG, SpO2, Respiration Rate, Skin Temperature) with monitoring accuracy and resolution, typically found in ICUs. In addition to the color touchscreen display on the patient-worn device, desktop PCs, tablet PCs and other mobile platforms can be utilized as remote viewing and notification devices. ViSi Mobile is able to wirelessly transmit data, leveraging existing hospital WiFi infrastructure, and is designed to provide information output in electronic form (i.e. EMR connectivity) as well as print-outs. Going forward, the ViSi Mobile System will also include Sotera’s patented cuffless non-invasive blood pressure (cNIBP) on a beat-to-beat basis, as well as patient posture / activity as a “new vital sign.”

ViSi Mobile is a comprehensive system, designed to enhance patient safety by allowing early detection of patient deterioration and connecting clinicians with their patients anywhere, any time.

The FDA has cleared Sotera Wireless‘ ViSi Mobile System that’s designed for monitoring of vital signs of ambulatory patients in non-ICU clinical settings. The wrist-worn device works with a number of sensors that measure blood pressure, heart rate / pulse rate, SpO2, respiratory rate, skin temperature, as well as 3-lead or 5-lead ECG. visi mobile system side Visi Mobile System for Real Time Wireless In Hospital Vital Signs Monitoring (video)All the data is sent over a standard (802.11) in-hospital wireless network to a central server for simultaneous real-time monitoring of all the patients on the floor using a computer or a tablet PC.

The company promises the next version of the device will provide continuous non-invasive blood pressure monitoring as well as the patient’s posture and activity levels.
