Tochtech partnership collaboration project to deliver optimum healthcare results for seniors using Sleepsense technology

Tochtech Technologies is thrilled to announce an exciting collaboration project with Bruyere Continuing Care in Ottawa to validate Tochtech’s Sleepsense technology for use in complex care. This collaboration project has been facilitated and funded by the Ontario BioScience Innovation Organization’s (OBIO’s) Early Adopter Health Network Program that identifies Canadian companies with innovative health technologies that are ready for adoption by end users.

The goal of this Tochtech-Bruyere project is to provide better resident outcomes in complex care, using Tochtech’s Sleepsense bed sensor technology. More specifically, the project aims to assess the technology’s ability to provide staff with real-time information about the bed existing activities of  residents at risk of falls or residents wandering during the night shift. The use of Sleepsense would be a significant improvement over current care methods. “Nighttime bed exits by care home residents affected by cognitive impairment is a significant challenge for staff at long term care organizations because of the risk of falls or wandering which can lead to injury to themselves or other residents. In addition, sleep disruption further increases risk of injury the next day” noted Dr. Bruce Wallace Executive Director of the AGE-WELL National Innovation Hub on Sensors and Analytics to Monitor Memory and Mobility (SAM3), who is also leading this project. 

“The project will see our Sleepsense technology be put through a rigorous evaluation process; in a lab/simulated setting, compared to other existing market products as well as benefits in a real life setting. We are however confident with the Sleepsense will be able to prove its effectiveness.  Staff will receive real time alerts directly to their cell phones or nurse call devices when a resident exits the bed, or has not returned to bed. Staff can then more effectively and promptly support residents that have exited the bed reducing the risks of possible falls or a disruptive event. The Sleepsense solution we offer is like no other on the market” said Jessica Yang, CEO of Tochtech. 

This project started in summer of 2022, with the test site located at The Courtyards on Eagleson, a seniors’ residence center that is owned and operated by All Seniors Care Living Centres. The project is expected to run for 8 months.
