FAQs

Who benefits from using Neteera 130?

Using Neteera 130 is beneficial for all stakeholders: Physicians and nurses can remotely monitor their patients from their offices or nurse stations and receive vitals in real time. Patients can be monitored from the comfort of their home or in hospital wards without cumbersome wires and cables.

What are the benefits of using Neteera 130?

Using Neteera 130 has many advantages, some of which are:   
  • Non-intrusive & contactless continuous & remote monitoring   
  • Image-free (no camera)   
  • Senses through clothing   
  • Can integrate into existing RPM workflow   
  • No need for maintenance or cleaning   
  • Not sensitive to lighting or condensation

What do I need to use Neteera 130?

All that is required to use Neteera 130 is WiFi connectivity. Physicians and patients can observe vital signs on Neteera’s dashboard through a smartphone, tablet, or computer. 

How do I view the vital signs measured?

A secure WiFi internet connection is used to transmit data. Data is sent via an encrypted secure network and stored on our HIPAA and GDPR-compliant cloud platform. Only physicians and patients monitored can determine access to personal health information. 

How does Neteera 130 detect my vital signs?

Neteera 130 measures micro-skin displacements caused by heartbeats and respiration in a contactless manner. The derived signal, the ballistocardiogram correlates accurately with standard ECG signals. 

Is Neteera FDA cleared?

Neteera 130 is FDA listed device; Class II 510(k) exempt. FDA clearance is expected in Q4/21. 

Is Neteera HIPAA & GDPR-compliant?

Neteera takes personal health information and sensitive data privacy and confidentiality very seriously. In addition to other measures we are taking, Neteera is HIPAA & GDPR-compliant. 

How is my data stored and how do I access it?

Data is stored on our HIPAA and GDPR-compliant cloud platform. 

How does Neteera integrate into existing EMRs and patient management platforms?

The collected data is accessed via API with the Neteera Cloud, enabling seamless integration into existing workflows.

Can others access my data?

Access to data is determined by physicians and monitored patients. 

How is the accuracy of the Neteera 130 determined?

The accuracy of Neteera 130 is determined by comparing data obtained to Mindray ePM 10M Patient Monitor. 

Is Neteera 130 a wearable device?

Neteera 130 is not a wearable. It is contactless, and accurately measures vital signs from a distance and there is no need to remove clothing. 

What vital signs does Neteera 130 measure?

Neteera 130 measures the same vital signs as the nurse/physician do: heart rate, respiratory rate, heart rate interval, and blood pressure. 

Do I need to remove clothing?

Since Neteera 130 is contactless, clothing removal is not required and not necessary. Your dignity and integrity are not compromised.

At what distance does Neteera 130 work?

Currently, Neteera 130 works up to a distance of 5 ft. or 1.5 m.

What is the underlying technology platform of Neteera 130?

Neteera 130 is the world’s first and only fully industrial sub-THz radar on chip established and developed in house. The high frequency enables unrivaled capabilities. 

What is heart rate?

Heart rate is the number heartbeats per unit of time (usually per minute). A normal resting heart rate for the average adult ranges between 60-100 beats per minute. 

What is respiratory rate (RR)?

Respiratory rate is a person’s number of breaths taken per minute. The normal respiration rate for an adult is 12 to 20 breaths per minute at rest. While resting, a respiratory rate under 12 or over 25 breaths per minute is considered abnormal. 

What is heart rate variability (HRV)?

Heart rate variability is the fluctuations in the time interval between individual heartbeats (measured in ms). It is measured by R-R intervals. 

What is R-R interval (HRI)?

R-R interval is the time lapse in between two consecutive heartbeats (in ms). HRI is used to compute HRV. 

What is remote patient monitoring (RPM)?

Remote patient monitoring is the use of technological and digital platforms to monitor the health status of an individual. Vital signs are usually measured remotely, from the patient’s home, hospital wards, or nursing facilities and data is transmitted to healthcare providers for assessment. RPM enables providers to track patients’ health from a distance. 

What are the advantages of RPM?

RPM has many advantages and include reduce hospital readmissions, decrease hospital-associated infections (HAIs), reduce hospital stays, reduce healthcare costs, improve health, enable personalized care.  

What is contactless sensing?

Contactless sensing is the use of wire-free, cable-free, and non-wearable technological and digital platforms to monitor the health status of an individual. Neteera uses contactless sensing to monitor vital signs.
