Vayyar announced that its life-saving sensor technology is being used by the Israeli government to fight the spread of COVID-19. Vayyar’s intelligent sensors provide touchless, remote and confidential monitoring to detect and monitor vital signs that can indicate early-stage COVID-19 symptoms. The data, including pulse, heart rate variability and respiratory rate, are all measured remotely, without the need for touch.
Vayyar’s intelligent sensors can be placed in homes, hospitals, factories, airports, public transport, borders and more to provide real-time data, and by minimizing the need for face-to-face contact, reduce the risk of exposure for both medical and non-medical personnel.
Vayyar is collaborating with MAFAT (Israel’s Defense Research & Development Directorate) and Israel’s Naval Medical Institute. Vayyar’s sensors have been successfully installed and are monitoring personnel in real-time to help detect early signs of the COVID-19 virus. Separately, The Israel National Emergency Team has successfully completed a test in which two systems were adapted for Vayyar sensors to analyze remotely, the vital data of patients.
“During this global pandemic, we are proud to work with health and defense systems to help control the COVID-19 outbreak, flatten the curve and save the lives of our loved ones,” says Ofer Familier, General Manager of Vayyar Home. “As we evolve our symptom monitoring capabilities, we hope to provide reassurance in this small way to soften social distancing restrictions, get people back to work and help to revive the economy.”
Vayyar’s sensors can work in any environmental condition, unaffected by line-of-sight, lighting or weather conditions and since they do not use cameras, personal privacy is always protected.
