At a Glance
Leaf Healthcare is a medical technology company dedicated to preventing hospital-acquired pressure injuries/ulcers and other immobility-related complications — some of the most common and costly hospital-acquired conditions. In April 2019, Smith+Nephew acquired Leaf Healthcare to add the Leaf Patient Monitoring System to their comprehensive pressure injury prevention solution.
Our Innovation
Leaf's innovation, the Leaf Patient Monitoring System wirelessly monitors a patient's position, movement and activity to automate and document the management of prescribed mobility protocols for patients at risk of immobility related Hospital Acquired Conditions. The system is comprised of a lightweight, wireless, wearable Patient Sensor, a plug and play secure wireless network of antennas, and proprietary software that manages data, displays patient status, and provides necessary care alerts at a nurse's station or on mobile devices. The system has been validated by an independent randomized controlled study to reduce pressure injuries by 73%.
