Neopenda & Ruaraka Uhai Neema Hospital
NeoGuard is a wearable wireless vital signs monitor that continuously measures pulse rate, blood oxygen saturation, respiratory rate, and temperature to enable more responsive and effective management of hospitalized newborns, as well as pediatric and adult patients in resource-constrained health facilities. Up to 15 patients can be monitored via one tablet. In this pilot, Ruaraka Uhai Neema Hospital in Kenya is deploying the technology in its newborn unit and pediatric ward to support patients in need of continuous vital sign monitoring. NeoGuard’s real-time audio and visual alerts aim to improve operational efficiency and speed of action in life-threatening situations.
