CuroCell® IQ

With focus on patient centered care

Healthcare is facing complex challenges due to an aging population and reduced healthcare resources. CuroCell® IQ has been developed to allow professionals to focus on patient-centered care. Using AI and high precision sensors, the system continiously monitors the patient’s weight, height, and position, adapting to individual needs.

CuroCell® IQ with The Pulsating Mode™ is developed to improve comfort and stability by reducing movements and fluctuations in the mattress. In addition, the silent running of the control unit enables conditions for undisturbed sleep and recuperation.

While prioritizing preventative care is crucial, the Pulsating Mode™ has also demonstrated efficacy as an aid in the actual treatment of pressure ulcers/injuries.
The Pulsating Mode™ has proven to be treating pressure ulcers in 30 days(1), compared to the expected healing time of up to 155 days(2).

The Story

Healthcare is facing complex challenges due to an aging population and reduced healthcare resources.

The World Health Organization (WHO) projects a shortfall of 10 million healthcare workers globally by 2030, presenting significant challenges to delivery of quality healthcare.

These trends necessitate the multifaceted functionality of our solutions while at the same time enabling healthcare to dedicate more time to patient care.

To provide the best possible care for patients at risk of pressure ulcers/injuries, we must not only treat their medical conditions but also consider values that affect well-being and quality of life, such as reduced pain and improved comfort.

This is where CuroCell® IQ and the Pulsating Mode™ comes into play, as an innovative solution that addresses these factors powerfully, as an aid in preventing and treating pressure ulcers/injuries*.

With focus on patient centered care

CuroCell® IQ is a completely autonomous system that has been developed to allow professionals to focus on patient-centered care. Using AI and high precision sensors, the system autonomously monitors the individual’s weight, height, and position, adapting to individual needs.

If the patient shifts in position, the system reacts and adjusts the contact pressure between the patient and the mattress. The outcome is enhanced comfort, reduced risk of cell damage as well as decreased necessity for manual handling. This, in turn, simplifies the caregivers process, ensuring a smoother experience for all involved.

Prevention and treatment of PUs/PIs

While prioritizing preventative care is crucial, the Pulsating Mode™ has also demonstrated efficacy as an aid in the actual treatment of pressure ulcers/injuries. The Pulsating Mode™ has proven to be treating pressure ulcers in 30 days(1), compared to the expected healing time of up to 155 days(2).

The cost of pressure ulcer/injury care decreases significantly when these wounds can heal within a shorter timeframe. The time healthcare professionals need to dedicate to each patient decreases, freeing up resources that can be used more efficiently within the Healthcare system(8).

Undisturbed sleep and reduced pain

Sleep and a calm environment are key components for recovery and well-being, and it is during sleep that the cells in the body are built up(5)(6), promoting wound healing.

The Pulsating Mode™ is developed to improve comfort and stability by reducing movements and fluctuations in the mattress. In addition, the silent running of the control unit enables conditions for undisturbed sleep and recuperation. In a clinical study, the individuals reported pain reduction while lying on a mattress with the Pulsating Mode™. The same study also reported that the control unit was considered quiet by the participants.(1)

Reduced workload and enhanced patient safety

The control unit and support surface are CE-marked seperately. This signifies that if a control unit needs replacement, the individual unit can be replaced without replacing the entire system.

This approach aims to ensures a more sercure experience for the individual, with patient safety maintaining by avoiding unnecessary movements. Additionally, caregivers do not face extra workload or an increased risk of injury.

Due to the recirculation of air within the support surface, the system does not require continious operation. This reduces wear and tear, as well as a lower energy consumption, allowing us to offer a service-free system for the initial five years. This results in reduced time and cost investments in servicing, logistics and handling.
