As the healthcare system and research labs are working tirelessly towards finding a solution to COVID-19 pandemic, 'Dozee'- a healthcare startup is trying to ease their burden and risk, by providing a dependable and non-intrusive solution to monitor vital signs.
The Bengaluru based start-up is offering their portable health monitoring device for free to COVID19 quarantined residents in Bengaluru which can help doctors remotely check on patients' progress in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic. The device gives continuous respiration data, without the need for wires or even any technical expertise. This portable device will be attached to a thin sensor sheet which goes below the mattress and should be kept right underneath the patient's chest area. "Whenever patients are on the bed, their health data will be captured and shared with doctors remotely. The device tracks heartbeat, respiration, sleep, stress recovery and more with medical-grade 98.4% accuracy and raises early alerts of health deterioration. With restricted movements in the current lockdown scenario, our device is also helping doctors monitor all the patients using a single screen and provide care to all the elders even with reduced staff," said Mudit Dandwate, CEO and Co-Founder of Dozee.
The start-up which is a brainchild of Mudit Dandwate and Gaurav Parchani till now has distributed around 200 devices in Bengaluru and the idea behind this activity is to proactively help those in need and at risk in this crucial hour and also because respiratory ailments are one of the symptoms of the ongoing COVID19 pandemic Dandwate further said that they had a capacity of producing 5000 devices per week and have now increased that to meet a demand of 1,00,000 devices per week to help the health care system.
The start-up has also tied up with the Rajasthan Government to enable their hospital wards with continuous monitoring technology and have set up their devices at Ashiana Senior Living for the assisted living facility.
