By 2025, the number of connected devices will grow to more than 75 billion. One reason for this IoT boom is new technologies and transmission options: Low Power Wide Area Networks, in particular the mobile radio standard Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT), are enabling the implementation of completely new IoT use cases.
That is because NB-IoT offers numerous advantages, first and foremost low costs, high scalability and good building penetration, making the standard the ideal technology for a wide range of applications – from smart metering to smart city and smart building.
Read the whitepaper to learn how Stiegelmeyer, leading global manufacturer of hospital and nursing home beds, partnered with Device Insight and grandcentrix to develop a smart out-of-bed solution based on Narrowband IoT.
In an aging society with a shortage of caregivers, new, innovative approaches to care are required. Stiegelmeyer, leading global manufacturer of hospital and care beds, has therefore set itself the goal of implementing a digital solution to make the everyday lives of caregivers easier, at the same time improving safety and comfort for both residents and patients.
In collaboration with grandcentrix and Device Insight, Stiegelmeyer has developed a digital out-of-bed system based on Narrowband IoT. This solution notifies caregivers via push message on smartphones and a dashboard when a patient at risk of falling gets out of bed – adjusted according to time of day, health status and patient mobility. In addition, the NB-IoT solution offers transparent condition monitoring of all bed status data, simplified weight recording and intuitive handling. Onboarding of new beds is accomplished within seconds.
