Fighting the virus with Lifelight
Lifelight is a game changing technology that allows any smartphone or tablet to measure a patient’s vital signs - blood pressure, pulse rate and breathing rate - simply by looking into the device's built-in camera for 40 seconds. 100% contactless, with no additional hardware needed, it has the potential to ease NHS frontline pressure while allowing a larger number of people to be tested safely and the right clinical pathway selected faster.
Matt Hammerton, GP Registrar at Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and clinical digital fellow at the Academic Health Science Network, said: “There is a clear need to protect both NHS staff and the public from spread of COVID-19. However, remote consultations, even via video, are currently limited by the inability to effectively assess the physical condition of the patient. As a CE marked medical device, Lifelight has the ability to provide clinicians with a quick, accurate measurement of vital signs, improving patient assessment while minimising patient contact.”
