How does Oxevision work?

Oxevision is a contact-free vision-based patient and management platform.
Oxevision helps clinicians to plan care and intervene proactively by providing them with:
Alerts to early warning signs
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 installed in a patient’s room. It works continuously, taking contact-free readings from the patient, no matter where they are in the room. The optical sensor connects to a server on the partner’s premises.
This relays information to clinicians where and when they need it. Viewing screens are installed at nursing stations and dedicated tablets are provided for when clinicians are moving around the ward.

How do Oxehealth’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 estimated breathing rate (chest wall movement) that is accurate to +/- 2 bpm, more accurate than nurse breath counting.
Take a spot measurement of breathing rate that is accurate to +/- 2 bpm, more accurate than nurse breath counting.
How it works

Oxehealth's system calculates an estimated breathing rate (chest wall movement) 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.
The Vital Signs module is cleared as an FDA class II medical device in the United States of America. Further information here.

How do 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 or 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 unassisted for elderly and frail patients can result in falls if they are unattended. Intervene before harm occurs with Oxevision’s alerts.

blind spot

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

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

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 when this occurs to reduce the risk of incidents from occurring.

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. Oxevision alerts to this potentially risky behaviour.

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 to anticipate their energy levels, care needs and likely behaviour during the day.
View benefit

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 this objective behavioral data to create personalised care plans for your patients
