Canadian Hospitals to Use Israeli-made Tech to Protect Medical Staff
Binah.ai’s technology enables the extraction of vital signs measurements based on the analysis of a video taken from the upper cheek skin region of a human face
Hospitals in the Canadian city of Montreal will use technology developed by Tel Aviv-based startup Binah AI Ltd. to assist patients battling the coronavirus (Covid-19), the company announced Tuesday.
Using Binah.ai’s vital signs monitoring tool will help triage nurses check vital signs such as the heart rate, respiratory rate, and the blood’s oxygen saturation of patients without physical contact with them, according to the company’s statement. The condition of certain hospitalized patients can be monitored from their beds, and the vital signs of patients at home can be checked remotely using Binah.ai’s technology.
Binah.ai’s technology enables the extraction of a large set of vital signs and mental stress measurements based on analysis of a video taken from the upper cheek skin region of a human face. The video can be taken with any device equipped with a camera, including smartphones, tablets, and in-car cameras.
