Resting Heart Rate / Respiration Rate / Movement Index / Fall-from Bed Detection / Alexa AI / Gesture SOS Trigger – Utilizing Patented IR-UWB RADAR Technology.
The ultimate peace of mind for both users and caretakers.
When a person is lying, sitting or standing still, accurate resting heart rate can be measured. This provides the user to take proactive steps to monitor their cardiovascular health while also providing peace of mind to caretakers who can monitor the users vital signs – even after a fall has occurred. *
Breathing rate provides important “check” on the status of a user in various situations. Kardian’s radar is able to pick up breathing rate by monitoring for micro movements coming from the chest as one breathes. What’s unique about Kardian compared to its competitors is that it can pick up accurate breathing rate even if the user is not facing the radar straight on. So toss & turn all you want. Kardian will be there to monitoring your breathing 24/7.
Unlike other “sleep monitoring” devices in the market, Kardian is designed to monitor for sleep apnea with medical grade precision. It is able to pick up body movement, chest movement (breathing), RHR and also able to decipher air flow + chest movement for OSA. No wearable required. *
Knowing how much movement the user makes is important for sleep analysis, but also for post-fall monitoring. When a caretaker receives an alert, he/she will not have information about the well-being of the user. With Kardian however, they will be able to see how much movement that the user is doing along with RHR/BR information. If there is no movement, the alert changes from “fall” to “severe fall with possibility of unconsciousness” status
There are three ways of triggering an SOS call sequence. First is by pressing the SOS button for 3 seconds or more. The user can also call for help by saying “Alexa, Kardian SOS”. Lastly, if the user is not able to press or speak, they can simply “reach out” with their arm towards the PERS device three times to trigger the SOS sequence. *
Unlike Kardian’s ceiling mounted fall detection, PERS device is typically positioned beside the bed (night stand). Due to this limitation, it is only able to see fall from a bed. This feature however can also provide automatic emergency calling feature by looking for falls to the ground from the bed.
Speaker / far-field mic (used for Alexa AI voice commands & 911 dispatch call connection
Detect and monitor heart rate, breathing rate, sleep analysis - including sleep apnea AHI data, fall detection and movement index wirelessly and free from any contact on the body.
Equipped with 4G LTE modem to dial out to designated caretakers and even 911 (only available to US customers). The system works with all 6400, 911 Emergency Dispatch centers across USA and does not require a third party call center. This means that is able to call help in 0:40 ~ 2:00 – about 3 times faster than any other 3rd party call center service. Real time information – such as the users fall status, movement status, RHR/BR, home address, GPS location (in case home address is inaccurate) are sent to 911 operators automatically.
Cancel / Power Control button (strategically placed away from the Emergency Button)
Emergency calls are also available in the Watch app. This solution can notify the caretaker of user’s status while requesting help.
Up to 9 emergency contacts can be stored. When an emergency call is made, the system automatically contacts the emergency contact network in order.
The app measures the user’s movement, heart rate, breathing rate, and records sleep status during the user’s sleeping time. And the user can check sleep information by period.
Using sleep information, keep the sleep score. User can also use the sleep score to find out if the user slept properly.
