SoundCARE / Ambient Monitoring Device


SoundCARE is an ambient monitoring system that aims to prevent detrimental psychological disorders (i.e. Delirium) caused by stressful ICU (Intensive Care Unit) conditions.

An imaging device assesses patients' consciousness and agitation levels by tracking head movement. Nurses are alerted when patients are awakening or becoming agitated, ensuring prompt intervention and provision of healthcare. The device concurrently emits soothing natural sounds to calm patients down and even aids in pain management.

Overall, patients experience improved recovery from a less sterile environment.
