An imaging device assesses patients' consciousness and agitation levels by tracking head movement. Nurses are alerted when patients are awakening or becoming agitated, ensuring prompt intervention and provision of healthcare.
The device concurrently emits soothing natural sounds to calm patients down and even aids in pain management. By utilizing natural sounds such as the chirping of birds, patients experience improved recovery from a less sterile and more natural ICU environment.
The devices can be easily strapped onto the sides of the hospital bed frame.
