The health and well-being of the nation will be improved by wide spread deployment of low cost integrated medical devices which will be used to collect data, transfer it to the cloud, integrate the data into clinical IT systems, carry out analysis and communicate data back to the user or their health care clinician.
Sanandco is creating ideas, developing designs and through robust clinically led partnerships differentiating our devices through proven clinical excellence.
Extremely easy to use and simply plugs into your existing telephone socket, replacing your current telephone.
It is as reliable as your telephone, not needing any additional equipment such as a computer, modem or Bluetooth connection.
It’s low cost, making it widely available to a large number of patients and health care providers.
The company USP is that devices will be low cost and simple to use, the objective being to supply the devices to a large number of patients and to operate a flexible and affordable approach for health care providers. The first of these devices is:
Who founded Sanandco?
Sanandco was founded by Saneth Wijayaratna. Saneth tragically passed away on 5th December 2014, aged 39, leaving a wife and three beautiful children. Saneth spent the last eight years of his life in the field of remote monitoring and telemedicine, and during this time identified why this important aspect of healthcare provision was failing. He developed a vision to bring healthcare monitoring to the masses, taking advantage of cloud storage and big data, by developing simple to use, reliable and clinically proven devices which both users and healthcare professionals could rely on and have confidence.
The MonitorMe telephone is Saneth’s idea and now fulfills the objectives of his vision. Saneth also planned further derivatives of MonitorMe. These include products targeting the consumer market and bluetooth enabled devices.
Saneth wanted profits from these products to be fed into a Healthcare Foundation. This in turn would identify opportunities for new devices and technologies to support individuals in taking control of their own health monitoring. The first idea to be supported is the development of an algorithm to monitor blood pressure directly from the ECG trace. Sanandco and UCL are already engaged in this exercise which when completed is likely to make the blood pressure cuff redundant.
Saneth’s wife Claire remains a shareholder, as are Julian Holmes and Ed Gammans. All are committed to delivering Saneth’s ambitions and creating a legacy for Saneth through a successful Healthcare Foundation.
These projects rely on the tireless work of Michael Pearson who is our product designer, and also the support of Plextek Ltd our design consultant and UCL our clinical support team.
MonitorMe is a telephone that captures your vital signs and sends them via telephone lines to your digital patient record. The digital patient record compares your vital signs with previous records and raises an alert to your medical professional in the event that changes are identified.
It is extremely easy to use and simply plugs into your telephone socket, replacing your current telephone. It is as reliable as your telephone, not needing any additional equipment such as a computer, modem or Bluetooth connection. If you can operate a simple basic telephone then remote healthcare monitoring is now available for you.
MonitorMe captures your heart rate, oxygen saturation level, temperature, ECG and blood pressure (currently via a cuff included with the phone). Monitoring these vital signs will provide you with piece of mind that any long term illness is being monitored and intervention will occur should your condition change. Should you need a hospital stay then early discharge will be made possible in the knowledge your vital signs are being monitored. Your loved ones can be given access at your discretion, to your Patient Record in order to provide them with the same comfort.
Your clinical professional will provide you with a MonitorMe phone and via a professional portal set the frequency of automated calls. The automated call will include a health questionnaire tailored to your condition and whilst you respond to the questionnaire by using the key pad on your phone, the Vital Signs will be measured. Intervention will be triggered should the vital signs fall outside defined parameters.
