PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
Five flagship IoT companies (Everynet, Redexia, Abeeway, Semtech, and Claranova) have joined forces to help fight the Covid-19 and offer innovative solutions to healthcare staff. The consortium designed a system based on LoRaWAN technology to equip hospitals with emergency buttons and save lives. This system signals patients requiring immediate intervention and allows medical personnel to locate and identify these calls in real time.
A consortium that brings together complementary technological expertise
- Everynet provides the infrastructure network,
- Semtech holds the underlying IP for LoRa technology
- Abeeway provides call buttons with long-life batteries.
- Redexia coordinates the integration and logistical deployment of the project
- myDevices completes the system with its software platform which allows the rapid integration of the various components of the solution. The myDevices platform collects the data and presents it in the form of a very intuitive dashboard for medical personnel.
Actility Group company Abeeway’s call button allows patients to report an emergency at any time. These waterproof, compact and easy-to-clean sensors include a Bluetooth scanner, allowing you to immediately identify and locate the equipment or person concerned. They can also measure the ambient temperature and detect physical contact thanks to a built-in loudspeaker, thus providing valuable information to healthcare staff in real time.
A solution that already equips 750 rooms - for free!
These technologies already equip 750 rooms for free in hospitals in Bellvitge, San Pau, Parc Taulí, Germans Trias i Pujol and Del Mar in Barcelona and save lives. This reliable and autonomous solution allows the nursing staff to work with greater responsiveness and security, thus freeing up time to concentrate fully on essential tasks. The consortium continues to deploy these solutions in other hospitals and is also working to extend these technologies to other key applications to combat the virus.
myDevices empowers partners to provide a wide range of IoT plug-and-play solutions such as the Nurse-Call system. The IoT platform put in place is seamlessly integrated to work with the other partners' LoRa-enabled devices and networks, allowing quick deployment of Covid-19 critical solutions.
“The rapid spread of Covid-19 has forced healthcare facilities to cope with a huge influx of patients and to adapt very quickly to very difficult conditions. In association with its prestigious partners, Claranova is proud to contribute to fighting this pandemic alongside healthcare staff. Call buttons make it easier for hospital staff and improve safety”, says Pierre Cesarini, CEO of Claranova.
“Improving healthcare facilities operations for patients and staff is critical in an effective fight against the spread of Covid-19. With Abeeway devices communicating through LoRaWAN, nurses get real-time information about a patient call for a nurse and the positioning of the patient bed. This enhances overall patient safety and medical staff efficiency and allows to save lives” says Olivier Hersent, CEO at Actility.
“We are honored and humbled that we could provide real help in such trying times and we hope our contribution will alleviate some of the burden on overloaded medical staff. We believe that our initiative to deliver our network for free, together with the strong ecosystem of partners that we built together with Redexia, can make a difference” says Lawrence Latham, CEO of Everynet.
“Semtech is honored to join Claranova, along with other companies to not only provide better working conditions for medical staff, but to also help the community during the pandemic,” said Marc Pegulu, Vice President of IoT in Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group.
