The Ostom-I alert is a connected medical device. It is a sensor that sits on the outside of medical bags such as stoma bags and uses Bluetooth® technology to send output data to a phone, tablet or watch. Patients are then able to set multiple alarms to alert them as to when the bag is filling and prevent unwanted accidents. The sensor provides real-time output volume data from which the software can deliver real-time autonomous interventions. Specifically, by receiving this information healthcare professionals can prevent readmissions from common issues, such as dehydration.
Ostom-i won the Breakout Award category at the AXA PPP Health Tech & You Awards in 2016, where the public could vote on social media for the piece of health tech that has most embedded itself into people’s lives over the past year. Following this, they have been accepted onto the prestigious DigitalHealth.London Accelerator programme and have entered into various partnership agreements with major centres in the United States.
