This investment is well aligned with our portfolio and we are confident the company’s management will leverage business opportunities, both independently and in cooperation with the world’s leading companies, to continue to grow rapidly,” said Danny Koller, Head of Financial Markets and International Banking at Bank Hapoalim. The EarlySense contact-free monitoring system is FDA-cleared and CE-approved. The system enables healthcare professionals to track patient heart rate, respiratory rate and movement constantly through a sensor placed under the mattress. Continuous data is displayed on the bedside monitor and in nurse monitoring stations and is also delivered to healthcare professionals’ smart-devices. The company’s technology leverages big data and advanced algorithms to generate highly accurate health information empowering clinicians to achieve early detection of adverse events and improved patient outcomes. EarlySense technology also powers several consumer health products including Samsung’s SleepSense, iFit’s Sleep Sensor and Beurer’s SE 80 Sleep Expert.]]>
