Dozee plays an integral role by offering remote and contactless health monitoring through tracking respiration, heart rate, oxygen saturation levels, stress levels on a daily basis and is helping doctors remotely check on patients’ progress. The AI powered system is also helping in flagging off health deteriorations well in advance. Doctors & Nurses can monitor the patient’s health 24×7 on the Dozee App or using Dozee’s Patient Monitoring Dashboard. Remote patient monitoring is reducing medical professionals’ exposure to infection and their workload.
“We take great pleasure in being the first chain of hospitals to use Dozee in Eastern India. This contactless monitoring device should come in very useful and shall be instrumental in providing adequate care to the patients, without putting the safety of the doctors’ at stake by reducing their exposure to the virus directly. We had ordered over 65Dozeeequipments in the first phase and would be ordering more as we see an increase in the demand of its usage,”said MrDebashisDhar, Group Vice President, ILS Hospitals.
Dozee has also been backed by reputed companies like Qualcomm and Department of Biotechnology – Government of India, BIRAC and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for product development and acceleration. Dozee uses Ballistocardiography as the underlying technology where a thin sensor sheet is placed below the mattress (any mattress up to 18 inches) of the user to capture the data on micro-vibrations in the human body. This data of micro-vibration is further analyzed using advanced machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms to create health data about the user.
Dozee, a part of the Turtle Shell Technologies Pvt Ltd is a company registered in India in 2015 based out of Bengaluru – Karnataka. The company was founded by MuditDandawate from IIT Mumbai and Gaurav Parchani from IIT Indore.
