Description: The Leaf Patient Mobility Monitoring System enables hospitals, long term care facilities, and nursing homes to wirelessly monitor the real-time orientation and activity of patients susceptible to pressure ulcers. This product also provides alerts when patient orientation or activity deviates from individualized turn management protocols set by the healthcare provider.

Healthcare providers will interact with the Leaf Patient Mobility Monitoring System, which displays each patient`s turn history, current status and also alerts staff if any patient requires a caregiver assisted turn. Patient data are collected from the transceiver and stored in a Microsoft Structured Query Language (SQL) Server database for subsequent analysis. This system is designed for use with the Leaf Patient Sensor, which takes measurements of the patient`s orientation and communicates this data wirelessly to the mesh network of Leaf Relay Antennas.

This entry covers the Desktop Edition of this technology and not any mobile versions. Please note that the implementation of mobile technology applications that operate on Mobile Operating Systems must be reviewed and approved by the Mobile Technology and Endpoint Security Engineering Team:
