Prevention, productivity and prediction: Helping carers solve the “corridor problem” Oxehealth, a British spin-out from Oxford University, have developed a Digital Care Assistant (DCA™), which is an optical safety sensor that helps carers solve the "corridor problem" and has been successfully tested in an elderly care home environment in Varberg municipality.
The Digital Care Assistant can help prevent falls by alerting staff in between their in person checks to risky resident behaviour, e.g. a resident getting out of bed, or leaving the room. Totally contact free, the DCA™ provides an activity report, which can provide a basis for understanding the resident’s night activities from when they have been in the room, in bed or in the bathroom, thereby supporting care planning.
Our Care Home Director, Katrin Engelmann, is speaking about how our Digital Care Assistant pays attention to every room when staff can’t be there, providing prevention, productivity and prediction.
