Dropsy is a new way to measure fluid retention in patients with limited mobility or in ICUs. Dropsy eliminates the need to weigh patients with their beds to determine dangerous fluid retention levels. Dropsy attaches to the wrist and ankle, measuring the patient’s bioelectrical impedance. Dropsy is small, lightweight, fast, and easy to use.
Dropsy is more accurate due to its use of bioelectrical impedance.
Dropsy is significantly smaller and easier to use on patients that are immobilized by multiple organ failures.
Stores data and past measurement history:
Dropsy continuously measures edema and enables trend analysis. It provides continuous monitoring and alerts when changes reach an alarming level.
Dropsy is less expensive than specialized hospital beds that are currently used to weigh patients and monitor for edemas.
Who is IT for
Patients with organ failure are at risk of edema. The efficacy of edema treatment is currently evaluated by measuring the amount of extracellular fluid, which is done by weighing the patient and noting changes in weight.
How it Works
Dropsy is an interstitial peripheral edema analyzer that makes ICU patient management more effective by measuring the patient’s bioelectrical impedance.
Dropsy is small, lightweight, fast, and easy to use in its bracelet form.
Hospital mortality rates with edema can be as high as 12% and 25% of patients with multiple organ failures die making efficient and accurate edema measurement of utmost importance.
Dropsy provides a small, lightweight way to monitor patients that is more accurate, faster, and easier to use than traditional monitoring methods.
Dropsy will revolutionize the care of patients with edema — and costs less.
