The Technology Association of Georgia and the Southeastern Software Association (SESA) named Sensiotec its SESA 2015 Impact Award for Emerging Mega Trends winner.

Sensitoc, a Select Company of the Advanced Technology Development Center, is a biosensing and health information technology firm.

The award was in recognition of its Virtual Medical Assistant (VMA), a remote, totally noncontact, cardiorespiratory patient monitoring platform. The VMA continuously provides critical spot and trend data on patients’ hearts, lungs and torsos to a nurse’s station, tablet, smartphone, or pager. It does so without electrodes touching the patient or pads requiring contact with a mattress or other surface.

“Clinical monitoring in the post-acute healthcare space is virtually nonexistent,” Robert Arkin, Sensiotec’s founder and CEO, said in a statement. “We are changing chronic disease management for the better by providing actionable, high value, low-cost patient data any time, any place to improve patient care and outcomes, increase patient safety, and control costs.”

At the point of care, the VMA utilizes Ultra-Wideband (“UWB”) technology that “sees inside the body” by acquiring and processing patient data through the transmission of nanosecond pulses.

The sensor panel transmits and receives continuous, low power, sub-nanosecond radar pulses that penetrate the body and reflect the micro-motion of the internal organs and clinically significant macro-movements. The reflected pulses are processed onboard the sensor panel, converted to actionable, real-time biometric data, encrypted and relayed continuously to a HIPAA-compliant cloud server, which captures approximately 400,000 data points per patient per hour.
