Cloud integration software provider, Dell Boomi, is working alongside Dutch start-up digitalAngel on the company’s new healthcare platform.
Working alongside technology consultants, Nalta, digitalAngel adopted the Boomi integration platform as a service (iPaaS) to launch a pilot project focusing on intelligent mattresses. The mattress uses sensory data which is shared with nurses, caregivers and healthcare staff in real-time to provide patient monitoring.
The smart mattress can transmit the data to carers and digitalAngel expects that in the future it will be able to automatically adjust a patient’s sleeping position by reacting to how well a person is sleeping. digitalAngel also hopes to develop a single, unified connected platform for all aspects of smart healthcare.
Peter de Lange, managing director, said: “Technology is transforming healthcare on a large scale at an extremely fast pace, and our unique vision is to create a single platform to combine multiple IoT and biometric sensors in ways that offer the maximum benefit to carers, patients and their families alike. Importantly, we are one of the first IoT platforms to have fully approved medical device classification. We are building the universal platform for the healthcare industry of the future.”
The company anticipates that smart care products, powered by the likes of biosensors and AI, will be able to use digitalAngel as a central connected platform.
Speaking about the project, Ian Currie, head of EMEA at Dell Boomi, said: ““This initial intelligent mattress project is a useful microcosm that helps to demonstrate the huge potential of the digitalAngel platform. Data-driven healthcare powered by multiple connected biometric sensors is clearly the future of smart healthcare. And we are proud to be digitalAngel’s technology partner helping to create the IoT healthcare platform of the future.”
“We are on the cusp of a number of major developments in smart healthcare products and technologies and digitalAngel will be the glue that holds them all together,” Currie concluded.
