mediContact

mediContact® is a comprehensive device which allows contact with patients via touchscreens or eye tracking

mediContact® is a device which facilitates contact with patients in a hospital setting who are paralyzed or who experience temporary or permanent loss of the ability to speak, allowing them to communicate using only eye movements or touch.

The device lets medical staff obtain valuable information on the patient, assisting in preliminary evaluation of the patient’s state. Additionally, mediContact® helps health services staff identify the patient’s symptoms and needs, aiding in the communication process and increasing the patient’s feeling of security.

mediContact®significantly improves the quality of services provided and assists medical staff in their work

The medical communicator provides patients with a feeling of security and comfort, and makes it possible for medical staff to effectively communicate and quickly obtain valuable information from the patient. The device is an effective replacement for communication aids used until now (such as paper flipcharts) and gives users a wide range of possibilities which support alternative forms of communication (such as ready-made question databases, text and image messages, and virtual keyboards). Moreover, mediContact® helps overcome language barriers by providing the possibility for staff and patient to use different language interfaces simultaneously.

mediContact® is an outstanding communication aid in hospital wards, particularly in Intensive Care Units.

 

mediContact® makes it possible:

- to locate sources of pain and other symptoms;

- to quickly communicate with the patient;

- to evaluate the level of pain and other symptoms;

- for the patient to express their needs;

- to communicate in different languages.
