US FDA clears Dozee’s contactless measurement system

Dozee announced its proprietary contactless vital signs (VS) measurement technology has received US FDA 510(k) clearance. According to nursing and midwifery professional organisations, India falls short of the WHO recommended rate of three nurses per 1,000 population and needs 4.3 million more nurses by 2024 to meet the WHO norms. Dozee aims to bridge this massive gap by adopting automated patient monitoring systems across secondary and tertiary public hospitals.

Studies have shown that remote patient monitoring technology reduces the workload on nursing staff for monitoring patients in hospitals and clinics, and improves efficiency by enabling them to continuously monitor multiple patients with clinical accuracy at once. Contactless technology improves the in-hospital experience for patients by removing the need for wires, electrodes and cuffs attached to the body.
