The IPSO Alliance is pleased to announce that HeadsUp! has won the IPSO CHALLENGE 2015 People’s Choice Award. Congratulations to them and all of our semi-finalists for the fantastic entries submitted this year.
HeadsUp! uses a smart object equipped with an accelerometer to monitor the position of a patient’s head when recovering from pneumatic retinopexy surgery, a procedure used to heal retinal detachment. HeadsUp! employs state-of-the-art, IP-based, low-power wireless networking technology to report data to the cloud. The patient gets alerts whenever his/her head deviates too much from its ideal position. With the patient’s consent, the surgeon’s office can follow the patient’s progress and take corrective actions if required.
