HOW IT WORKS

Dropsy utilizes a noninvasive measurement involving two electrodes (bracelets), one for the arm and one for the ankle. A low level, imperceptible electrical current is sent through the body and measures an electrical resistance for a specific frequency.

The flow of current is affected by the amount of water in the body. The device measures how this signal is impeded through different types of tissue. As bioelectrical impedance determines the resistance to flow of the current as it passes through the body, it provides estimates of water, which is much more efficient in determining the effectiveness of edema treatment. 

 

Best for professionals

Dropsy takes edema care to the next level. Dropsy is small and easy-to-use, providing continuous monitoring. Dropsy can be used as an alarm or to transmit the readings to a mobile device via Bluetooth to alert health care workers to potential trouble in fluid levels.

CONSCIOUS PATIENTS

If the patient is conscious, the patient will create a closed circuit with the bracelets by touching their finger on the outer electrode of the wrist bracelet or touching their ankle on the outer electrode of the ankle bracelet. The bracelet on the wrist measures bioimpedance through the upper body, and the bracelet on the ankle measures bioimpedance through the lower body. Measurements should be taken every 6-8 hours unless otherwise specified by a health professional.

 

For the upper body measurement, the patient will place their opposing finger on the outer electrode of the bracelet for 10 seconds creating a closed circuit. This circuit will travel from the arm with the bracelet, through the upper body, and down through the opposing arm and back into the bracelet through the finger that is closing the loop. 10 seconds is recommended as this gives the device enough time to take two measurements, one at a high frequency current (1000 kHz) and one at a low frequency current (3 kHz). The high frequency current measures total body water while the low frequency only measures extra cellular fluid. If the ratio between ECF and TBW is greater than 26%, the bracelet will sound an alarm indicating a possibility of edema, which is indicative of organ failure.

The lower body measurements are very similar. The patient will place their opposing ankle on the outer electrode of the bracelet  for 10 seconds creating a closed circuit. This loop travels from the leg with the bracelet, up towards the hips, down the opposing leg and ending at the bracelet through the ankle touching the outer electrode. As mentioned before, the bracelet will take two measurements at high and low frequencies in order to measure the ratio between extracellular fluid and total body water. If the ratio between ECF and TBW is greater than 26%, the bracelet will sound an alarm.

 

It is important to note that the edema will settle at the lowest centre of gravity, meaning in patients who are walking the edema will be in their ankles, and patients who are lying down will have the edema in their lower back area. Even if the patient has been walking all day and it is likely that the edema has settled in the lower body, it is still important to take measurements with both bracelets; as a verification method for edema is to measure the difference in ECF/TBW ratio between the upper and lower body.

UNCONSCIOUS PATIENTS

If the patient is unconscious, such as a patient administered to the ICU, a closed loop will be formed by attaching a wire between the bracelet on the write and on the ankle. This loop measures bioimpedance throughout the entire body and does not need patient interaction in order to perform the measurement. The circuit runs from the ankle, through the upper body to the wrist bracelet, which then closes the loop back to the bracelet on the ankle.

 

The bracelet will still take measurements at a high and low frequency in order to determine the ratio between extra cellular fluid and total body water. Since the bioimpedance is measured throughout the entire body, there is no need for separate measurements of both the upper and lower body. With this method, the bioimpedance measurement can be continuous and ongoing allowing for nurses and doctors to be notified immediately if there is a possibility of edema. Since the measurements are ongoing, there is no need to manually take a measurement every 6-8 hours. If the ratio between ECF and TBW is greater than 26%, the bracelet will sound an alarm indicating a possibility of edema, which is indicative of organ failure.

Benefits

Compact and lightweight.
The Dropsy bracelets are easy to use and eliminate the need for heavy beds that need to be weighed to monitor patient changes in weight. 

Accurate and immediate measurement.
The accurate and immediate measurement replaces the long and tedious process of weighing patients and manually tracking patient changes in weight over time. 

Enables review of measurement history.
Digital tracking of the patients fluid levels over time for easy monitoring and progress updates. 

Easy to use.
User-friendly design meets medical standards and is efficient.
