Patient Monitoring – Bedside Monitoring

Patient Monitoring – Bedside Monitoring

Custom Displays for Patient and Bedside Monitoring Systems

A patient monitor is an electronic medical device that consists of one or more monitoring sensors, processing component(s), and a monitor. These patient and bedside monitoring systems provide and record a patient's vital signs (body temperature, blood pressure, pulse rate, and respiratory rate) or measurements of the activity of various body organs.

At Canvys, we focus on the product so our customers can focus on the outcome. With over 30 years of experience working with medical OEMs worldwide, we deliver high-quality patient monitors that our customers can trust.

Our team recently worked with a leading global manufacturer of patient monitoring, sleep assessment, neurology, and cardiology equipment. Its patient and bedside monitor solution is a comprehensive parameter monitoring system with data storage and many other features.

The medical OEM required a partner to help design, engineer, manufacture, and support an open-architecture visual display monitor and user interface for its bedside units. Since these medical devices are the primary interface between the attending medical staff and the patient, requirements included a multi-touch interface (including gloved operation) and rugged, reliable operation within medical environments. Due to high regulatory and extended-life program timeframes, long-term production availability and configuration control were critical to minimizing program expenses. The application goals also included custom firmware to allow locking configuration parameters such as alarm volumes to ensure safe patient monitoring, and custom labeling for consistent branding and messaging across the system.

The Canvys team customized an existing patient and bedside monitoring platform that met the OEM’s program requirements while minimizing costs. Application-specific parameters, such as volume levels, were defined and validated to ensure proper notification alarms per customer requirements. Private branding included custom artwork on the label, logos on the product bezel, and a custom splash screen shown while the monitor boots up. The existing platform product had been tested to meet medical application EMI and safety requirements, minimizing the system-level regulatory testing risk.

Our configuration control and product life cycle management allow our customers to utilize Canvys as a long term partner – mitigating supply chain issues and end-of-life concerns. With dedicated engineering, program management, and a manufacturing team with over 30 years of experience, Canvys can deliver a customized visual technology solution that quickly and reliably integrates into the patient monitoring system, allowing our customers to focus their resources within their core competencies.
