How does Oxevision work?

Oxevision is a contact-free vision-based patient monitoring and management platform.
Oxevision helps clinicians to plan care and intervene proactively by providing them with:
Location and activity based alerts and warnings
Reports on risk factors
Medical grade cardio-respiratory vital signs
How it works

Visualise Oxevision in your facility

The Oxevision platform consists of a secure optical sensor (camera and infrared illuminator) installed in a patient’s room. Clinicians can use it to take contact-free vital signs and to receive location and activity based alerts to support patient care. The optical sensor connects to a server on the partner’s premises.
Clinicians can view these insights through privacy screens in the nurses’ station and by using portable devices, meaning that patient information is relayed to clinicians where and when they need it most.

How do Oxevision’s
vital sign measurements work?

Pulse rate

Take a spot measurement of pulse rate that is as accurate as a contact pulse oximeter: +/- 3 bpm.

How it works

When your heart beats, your skin flushes red. The human eye cannot see these "micro blushes" but Oxehealth's optical sensor can, using infrared light and our proprietary signal processing techniques. Our software counts the micro blushes to calculate a pulse rate.

Our system uses PPG ("photoplethysmography") like finger pulse oximeters - wired clips you may have had placed on your finger at a GP's surgery or in hospital. The scientific breakthrough is our ability to use PPG to detect pulse rate from several meters away.

breating rate

Breathing rate

Take a spot measurement of breathing rate that is accurate to +/- 2 bpm, more accurate than nurse breath counting.

Oxehealth's system calculates breathing rate by counting the movements of the body created by chest and diaphragm breathing, just as a nurse would if they were observing the patient with a stopwatch.

Find out how Oxevision's activity alerts work

Oxevision’s algorithms can “see” movement in the room, rather like a human eye would. They know where the critical areas in the room are, for example, the bed and the door. They use the movement in those areas to trigger appropriate alerts and to record activities for the activity report.
edge of bed

In-Bed, Edge-of-Bed,
Out-of-Bed alerts

The process of getting out of bed for elderly and frail patients can result in falls if they are unassisted. Be notified if Oxevision detects activity in and around the bed, to alert you to times when patients may be at risk of falling.

In-Bathroom, Bathroom-Timer, Blind-Spot alerts

Self harm or misadventure usually occurs in known locations, especially in a patient’s bathroom. Be notified if Oxevision detects that a patient spends an unusually long time in an area you have designated to be high risk.

Room-Entry, Multiple-Occupants alerts

Certain patients should not come into contact with each other and any non-staff entry into a patient bedroom at night is potentially suspicious. Be notified to multiple sources of activity in a room to alert you to potential risks.

Out-of-Room alerts

Wandering off is a major risk in dementia and other Older adult settings and can be an early warning sign to a potential assault in psychiatric settings. Be notified if Oxevision detects that a patient's activity indicates they may have left their room.

What care reports does Oxevision provide?

Vital sign and activity data are presented to inform care planning. Key reports are:


Sleep is crucial to well-being and recovery. Assess the sleep opportunity a patient has experienced using reports of location and activity to anticipate their energy levels, care needs and likely behaviour during the day.

Review overnight activity

Know how often the patient goes to the bathroom, how long they spend in bed and whether they left the room during the night. Use activity reports to assess this objective behavioural data to create personalised care plans for your patients.
