Healthsense Wins Gold in Prestigious Edison Awards

Healthsense's eNeighbor(R) Platform Is Recognized for Giving Providers the Power to Proactively Manage and Anticipate Senior Care Needs

MENDOTA HEIGHTS, MN -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/14 -- Healthsense®, Inc., the fastest growing provider of technology-enabled care solutions for the senior care continuum, has been awarded Gold in the Science/Medical software category of the prestigious Edison Awards™. Healthsense's eNeighbor® technology platform was recognized for its impact on wellness and prevention, which the award program's namesake Thomas Edison believed should be valued above focusing on disease alone.

"We are honored to be recognized in such a prestigious manner, particularly given the high caliber and outstanding offerings of our fellow nominees," said Healthsense President and CEO A.R. Weiler, noting that GE Healthcare's DoseWatch and Centricity360™ products were awarded silver and bronze in the same category. "This award validates our focus on providing clinically-focused remote monitoring systems that enable seniors and the chronically ill to safely live as independently as possible."

The Edison Awards are among the most prestigious accolades honoring excellence in new product and service development, marketing, human-centered design and innovation. Unique to the world of award programs, the Edison Awards are focused on the innovators as much as the innovations. Award winners represent "game changing" products, services and excellence and leadership in innovation.

Many top national and international companies join Healthsense in being recognized by the Edison Awards across 15 categories, including Braun, FitBit, Kimberly-Clark Corporation, Lenovo, Logitech, Motorola Solutions, Philips, SpaceX and Tesla Motors. The 2014 Edison Achievement Award Honorees were Elon Musk, CEO and Product Architect of Tesla Motors and CEO/CTO of Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX), and Yang Yuanqing, Chairman and CEO of Lenovo.

Joining Healthsense's eNeighbor as Gold winners in the Science/Medicine category are the digital health feedback system by Proteus Digital Health (Analytics Systems); Argus® II Retinal Prosthesis System by Second Sight Medical Products Inc. (Assistive Devices); MultiOmyx™ by GE Healthcare (Detection); Theranos, Inc. (Lab Diagnostics); ECVue Heart Mapping System by CardioInsight & Nottingham Spirk (Surgical Aids); and ROBOT SUIT HAL for medical use by CYBERDYNE Inc. (Treatments).

Healthsense's eNeighbor platform uses sensors and state-of-the-art analytics technology on a scalable wireless platform to collect and analyze information for better care management decisions. Sensors work with Healthsense software to establish the typical routine for each resident based on their Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). This becomes the benchmark for establishing when assistance may be needed, allowing caregivers to automatically detect emergency situations and emerging health concerns before they turn into larger, more serious health concerns.

Weiler notes, "Far more than an emergency call or fall detection system, eNeighbor additionally picks up on subtle clues and alerts caregivers when intervention may be necessary. These early alerts can prevent the need for emergency care or hospitalization or the permanent worsening of chronic conditions. The end result is more informed and proactive care decisions that significantly reduce total medical expenses and, in many cases, allow the senior to gracefully age at home with dignity and respect."
