Introducing MasterCaution®: Hospital Quality Cardiac Monitoring
in a Comfortable Garment

Comprehensive, continuous cardiac monitoring seamlessly integrated into nursing home life

MasterCaution®* is an accurate and comprehensive cardiac telemetry system that monitors 1lead ECG signals and wider vital signs, through a ground-breaking smart sensing textile t-shirt, hWear. The medical garment can alert you to cardiac events such as ischemia and arrhythmias, and sudden patient falls in real-time locally or via a smartphone and cloud solution, for improved patient safety.

How we help

MasterCaution® can help you continuously monitor patients throughout the nursing home. It easily integrates with your in-house systems or programs, and can help improve quality of patient care and satisfaction, reduce costs and save operational time.

MASTERCAUTION® ADVANTAGES

Hospital
quality

Current 3-5 lead ECG systems on the market cannot detect ischemia and sometimes can miss diagnosing arrhythmias. MasterCaution® is the only solution that continuously monitors 12-lead ECG signals, and can alert clinicians to these life-threatening cardiac events outside the hospital setting.

Complete health
monitoring

MasterCaution® provides comprehensive wider vital sign monitoring and automatic alerting to cardiac events as well as sudden patient falls, respiratory difficulties, inactivity causing bedsores and temperature. This can help staff detect and respond to crises earlier for improved patient safety and quality of care.

Improved patient
satisfaction

Cardiac monitoring systems can be cumbersome with many wires, often confining patients to bed or restricting movement. MasterCaution®’s comfortable, wireless heart-sensing garment, hWear, enables patients to move around freely for easy and safe continuous patient monitoring in or out of bed.

Save time
& money

hWear’s proprietary textile engineering enables automatic self-placement of electrodes, and requires no time-consuming skin preparation, such as shaving. This eliminates the need for a highly skilled ECG professional to place or operate the system, and helps save valuable time.

Reduce alert
fatigue

Caregivers can be overwhelmed by too many alarms, leading to alarm fatigue. MasterCaution®’s sophisticated algorithms powerfully analyse and detect cardiac events by distinguishing between noise-related artefacts and real events, to help reduce false alarms (false positives).

Reduce readmissions
due to false alarms

MasterCaution®’s on-board two-way control enables physicians to actively manage and respond to alerts remotely to help minimize readmissions due to false alarms. Physicians can quickly respond in real-time through the cloud portal to analyze trends and abnormalities, revise pre-defined physician limits for automatic alerts and schedule ECGs remotely!

MasterCaution® is the only medical device outside the hospital setting that can automatically alert clinicians to cardiac ischemia and arrhythmias for improved patient safety.
