As shown below, there are three components to this solution. The dressing contains a pressure sensor that detects when too much pressure is applied and then sends a wireless signal to a bedside tablet. The tablet receives the sensor information and applies a proprietary algorithm to monitor and alert the patient and caregivers when the critical threshold has been passed. It also sends the information to The Cloud website so that patients can be monitored remotely and clinical history can be stored.
