Intrex Partners with Wirepas to Bring Real-Time, Actionable Data to Senior Living Communities

Rythmos® Solution Bridges Gap Between Safety & Medical Records, Allowing Seniors to Living Independently longer

  • Wirepas Massive, a unique mesh connectivity software enables facilities of all sizes to implement life-saving, scalable solutions
  • Together they provide real-time detection and subsequent correlation between behavioral and medical changes that allow for the most informed and comprehensive medical records

Jan 13 2022, Virginia – Intrex, a medtech company developing next generation solutions for senior living, today announced its partnership with Wirepas, a company on a mission to democratize IoT connectivity. Wirepas Massive, a unique connectivity software, enables the Rythmos® ​​platform, an intelligent, personalized system designed around the individual to monitor for safety and manage chronic conditions, ensuring residents can remain safely independent longer. The goal of the partnership is to bring the most advanced technology available to the senior living communities, connecting all facets of care, resulting in improved senior safety and wellness.

The gap between safety and wellness systems is a real and growing problem facing senior living communities and the healthcare facilities at large. Assisted living providers have an electronic medical record (EMR) system in place, but it is almost always completely separated from their nurse call system. This means a resident’s needs data (button presses, falls) and activity data (steps, sleep quality, location and historical positioning) is not tied to their health data (care plan, therapies, medications, etc.)

“Having worked in these communities, we saw firsthand the issues that this siloed approach to healthcare was causing. We knew there was a way to innovate however, administrators were hesitant or unable to take action because of the high costs associated with large traditional network providers, ” says Ted Tzirimis, CTO of Intrex. “With Wirepas, we’re able to bring the most cutting-edge solutions to administrators and residents, powered by reliable, easily deployable solutions in a cost-effective form that enables communities of all sizes and means to have access to this life saving solution.”

Rythmos® is a 4-in-1 platform that combines an advanced nurse call system with wander management and integrated access control all in one device. It allows for integration with telehealth devices for chronic care management, facility management, integrations with emerging technologies, and powerful predictive analytics that help keep residents safe and healthy. You can also easily monitor residents’ precise location to mitigate elopement risk and receive alerts for emergency button pushes and falls from any web-enabled device.

Nurse call systems are typically quite expensive if they support real-time positioning. They also require an additional investment in cables, wires, Wi-Fi, and other infrastructure. For legacy nurse call systems that do not have real-time positioning, it can be costly and complicated to extend and maintain. Rythmos®, with Wirepas Massive, enables better coverage throughout any type of building, both new construction and retrofits. The costs are also dramatically lower and the Rythmos® system can be kept running on batteries only, even if power and internet is lost.

“At Wirepas, we champion doing things differently and value partners that think outside the box to bring the very best, cutting edge solutions to their industries. We’re happy to be Intrex’s reliable network on which they build and innovate in an industry that touches all of us in some way,” says Teppo Hemiä, CEO of Wirepas.
