BAM Labs Introduces New Touch-free Life Care (TLC) System for Senior Living Communities


October 17, 2011, LeadingAge Conference, Washington DC: Revolutionary TLC system turns any bed into a smart bed that helps seniors live healthier and independently LeadingAge, Washington, D.C.

BAM Labs, the innovator in touch-free connected care, announced today the Touch-free Life Care™ System that puts smart bed technology within reach of every care facility. By transforming any conventional bed into a smart bed, BAM Labs’ TLC System™ empowers caregivers to remotely monitor residents based on their health management needs – without attaching anything to the person’s body. The revolutionary TLC System is being demonstrated at the 2011 LeadingAge annual meeting and IAHSA global aging conference in BAM Labs’ booth #1430 and in the Idea House.

The TLC sensor mat is placed under any bed mattress and continuously transmits the person’s “bio-signal” to the TLC analysis cloud. The TLC System analyzes this data to track heart rate, breathing rate, motion and presence. The TLC System incorporates multiple applications that support health management programs, such as fall reduction, pressure sore prevention and rehabilitation programs.

“BAM Labs developed the Touch-free Life Care System to improve quality of life for our aging population by enabling every senior care facility to implement smart bed technology,” said Rich Rifredi, President of BAM Labs. “Our TLC System delivers actionable data that turns every bed into a point of connected care so caregivers can help seniors live healthier and independently.”

Caregivers can monitor a group of people at all times while performing their daily duties and receive notifications on their PCs or mobile devices, such as smart phones, iPod touch and iPad devices, about scheduled position changes and alerts such as a person getting out of bed. Caregivers can also review long-term trend data to identify adverse changes in health for early intervention. BAM Labs’ patent-pending TLC technology uses standard wireless Internet with no need for cumbersome wires attached to the person, proprietary network equipment or on-site servers.

“BAM Labs’ TLC System is elegant, non-obtrusive and simple to install and use, and has become an important tool to help our caregivers provide immediate care when needed allowing our residents to live more independently,” said Alex Candalla, Executive Director, The Terraces of Los Gatos.

BAM Labs’ Touch-free Life Care System is available now to senior residential living communities through authorized distributors. For more information, contact sales@bamlabs.com.
