The Wound Pros introduced a mobile app to combat COVID-19 in long-term care facilities

The new app provided camera-based vitals monitoring for high-risk patients.

The Wound Pros announced a mobile app for its wound management platform, which could monitor patients' vital signs in long-term healthcare facilities using a smartphone's camera.

The Wound Pros specializes in treating chronic and non-healing wounds in patients at long-term care facilities. The company introduced a new app to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in long-term healthcare facilities, aiming to benefit both patients and healthcare workers.

Research indicated that long-term care facilities, including skilled nursing homes, accounted for the majority of cases and deaths in the U.S. Patients and frontline healthcare workers were particularly vulnerable to COVID-19 due to factors such as high occupation density and underlying health conditions like hypertension and diabetes. The Wound Pros aimed to safeguard patients and healthcare providers in skilled nursing homes by implementing their new health and wellness monitoring app.

Dr. Christopher Otiko, co-founder of The Wound Pros, described the new app as a cutting-edge solution for patient and wound care management suitable for all ages. It utilized contactless camera-based technology to monitor vital signs such as heart rate, respiratory rate, heart rate variability (HRV), oxygen saturation, mental stress, and blood pressure. This innovative technology is seamlessly integrated into The Wound Pros telemedicine and EHR platform, providing real-time access to patient's medical information for wound care experts.

Oxygen saturation emerged as a crucial indicator for detecting COVID-19 in patients. With its ability to deliver medical-grade accuracy within 10 seconds to 2 minutes, The Wound Pros aimed to equip long-term care facilities nationwide with remote vitals monitoring solutions as part of its comprehensive treatment approach. The technology relied on a blend of signal processing and artificial intelligence (AI) to manually track variations in patients' vital signs using a smartphone's camera.
