“Smart beds expand the realm of informed health management and connected
healthcare applications to the place where people spend one third of their life—their
bed,” said BAM Labs’ CEO Rich Rifredi. “BAM Labs’ Touch-free Life Care
under-mattress bed sensor combined with our HIPAA-compliant cloud monitoring
platform transforms any bed into a smart bed. We are pleased to team up with
Goodmark Medical to deliver our TLC smart bed solution that costs just a few dollars a
day for innovative, patient-centered care providers across the U.S.”
BAM Labs’ Touch-free Life Care smart bed solution will now be available in settings
ranging from individual homes to senior living communities for the first time through
Goodmark Medical, a seasoned sales and service provider with a proven track record in
the healthcare industry. “The Goodmark team’s innovative approaches and proven
marketing and sales practices for the healthcare industry stemming from years of handson
experience make them ideal partners to expand the market for BAM Labs’ smart bed
technology,” said BAM Labs’ Vice President of Sales & Marketing Casey Pittock. “We
are pleased to team up with a company empowering caregivers to utilize remote health
monitoring to improve outcomes and reduce costs by decreasing or eliminating falls and
pressure sores.”
Healthcare professionals and caregivers are embracing BAM’s new breed of smart bed
technology. Benefits include prevention of pressure ulcers by timing and documenting
the movement of patients who cannot move themselves and the prevention of falls, by
predicting and documenting bed exits.
“We believe that when professional and family caregivers are better informed via
technology, they can become an important and more effective part of the healthcare
decision process, which can lead to better outcomes,” said Michael Visnich, CEO of
Goodmark Medical. “BAM Labs’ smart bed systems are pioneering a new age of
connected care that addresses the critical need for remote health monitoring. With the
Touch-free Life Care smart bed solution it is possible to virtually eliminate painful bed
sores (decubitus ulcers) and falls, while providing empowerment for “aging in place.”
