South Western Sydney, Howard Springs using armband sensor for COVID monitoring

South Western Sydney Local Health District (SWSLHD) has started a trial of an AI-powered wearable device to monitor COVID+ patients at home, joining Murrumbidgee LHD and the Howard Springs quarantine facility in Darwin in using the technology.

The remote monitoring system involves a wearable armband called Everion that monitors vital signs such as heart rate, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation, skin temperature and activity, with data sent to an app by Bluetooth and then onto a clinical dashboard for clinicians to monitor remotely.
