Our software-based solution scales rapidly across a population. Keep the app running in Monitoring Mode, and it knows when to switch to Emergency Mode.

 

Monitoring Mode

Simple calibration process

Intuitive display of physiologic status

Connection to support services

Emergency Mode

Loud audible alarm to draw attention

Instructions for delivering treatment

Emergency services summoned to exact location

 

How it works

Phone or smart speaker emits inaudible ultrasonic pulses that reflect off a person’s chest.

The reflections are detected by the device’s microphone.

The reflections are detected by the device’s microphone.

Signal processing algorithms analyze the frequency shifts in the reflected signal to identify respiratory failure.

Respiration is communicated by the device, which triggers help when necessary.
