Dozee is a contactless health tracker that monitors vitals while the patient sleeps and transmits that data directly to an app for loved ones to track.
As people age, it can increase the amount of mental and physical stress on their family members as they do their best to care for them. Particularly, if an ageing parent is living alone, it can cause stress and anxiety to check in on them regularly. Relying on technology to do the monitoring instead, can offer peace of mind and make communication much easier.
Dozee is a sleep monitoring device that is connected to Wi-Fi and placed under the bed. It is merely a small sheet that has numerous sensors. When the user gets into bed, the device converts micro-vibrations into biomarkers. These are transmitted to the mobile app as heart rate, sleep stages and breathing rate. The device is sensitive enough to track the most subtle changes, like the heart valves opening and closing. It makes sense of all this information by using artificial intelligence.
If the system detects something out of the ordinary, it will alert the carer and let them know via the smartphone app. At any time, the carer(s) can look at the data from their loved one to see how they are doing. India is dealing with an ongoing lack of access to affordable, quality healthcare. In such a populous country with limited healthcare workers, it is up to innovative companies like Dozee to close the gap using technology. Another company working to make a difference in India is iKure, it’s incorporating healthtech into the Indian healthcare system in various ways.
