BioIntelliSense has partnered with Aloe Care Health to provide elderly adults with better remote patient monitoring services. Aloe Care is the developer of an in-home Smart Hub medical alert system with hands-free voice communication capabilities, while BioIntelliSense is best known for its single-use BioSticker and BioButton wearable devices.
The new partnership will integrate those devices with the Aloe Care Smart Hub platform to help track the health of patients in real time. The BioIntelliSense wearables will monitor basic vital signs like temperature and respiratory and heart rates, in addition to lifestyle indicators like activity level, body position, and sleep status. That information will be sent to the Smart Hub through a Bluetooth connection to let medical professionals (and emergency responders) know about any adverse changes in a patient’s condition.
The Aloe Care system is designed to support patients that want to continue living independently. The BioButton and BioSticker, meanwhile, are the first remote patient monitors to be certified as official “Certified by Aloe Care” products. The two companies will share more details about their integrated solution ahead of its launch in the second half of the year.
“Our companies share a common vision of advancing and scaling remote care for older adults,” said BioIntelliSense Founder and CEO James Mault. “The combination of our devices and data insights enables medical-grade monitoring and alerting at home. The collaboration with Aloe Care extends our reach and simplifies deployments in the home via the Aloe Care hub.”
The BioSticker received FDA approval in January of 2020, and can be worn for a 30-day period. The BioButton debuted a few months later, and is durable enough to last for a full 60 days. BioIntelliSense also offers data services that help patients and their care providers make sense of the information gathered through the two devices.
