Pressure injuries, often preventable but costly complications, impact patients and residents, causing suffering and burdening healthcare systems. LenexaCARE® aims to alleviate this issue by providing personalised, around-the-clock monitoring. Preliminary results from pilots indicate up to a 67% reduction in residents’ time spent in at-risk positions, potentially leading to substantial cost savings and improved staff productivity for aged care providers.

“The LenexaCARE® technology will now support residents and staff with around the clock monitoring and provide our carers with resident specific insights and increased visibility of resident risk at any given time.”

Mark Sheldon-Stemm, CEO at Valley View

LenexaCARE® not only prevents pressure injuries but also lightens the load on caregivers. The technology’s integration into existing nurse call systems and potential global applicability positions it as a transformative solution for the widespread issue of pressure injuries in healthcare.
