Xandar Kardian solidifies agreement with reassurance solutions to better wellbeing of inmates
Leveraging continuous vital sign monitoring within the prison population without the need of cameras directs resources for serious medical events at the very onset of symptoms increasing positive patient outcomes.
TORONTO - Following the success of Toronto-based healthcare technology company Xandar Kardian’s UWB radar sensors in a maximum-security institution in Hong Kong that saved the life of an inmate, Reassurance Solutions has signed on to deploy the company’s sensor technology within its correctional facilities.
Xandar Kardian’s cutting-edge UWB radar technology reacts to the micro-vibrations of the human body, such as a heart beating or lung pumping, for highly accurate vital sign measurements. Importantly, the Xandar Kardian sensors require no wearables on the inmate, no video or audio recordings, no software to operate, and no battery to change – providing a completely autonomous, continuous, and privacy-secure health-monitoring solution.
“We know that people feel strongly about a myriad of issues in the prison system, but everyone agrees that an inmate should be safe and receive care if needed,” Co-founder and Managing Director of Xandar Kardian Sam Yang said. “By partnering with people and organizations who want to improve the wellbeing of the prison population with this breakthrough in technology that provides important health data while being HIPAA-compliant, we know that we’re saving lives. We’ve already done it.”
“Safety has always been a priority, but for too long we’ve had to rely on manual interventions,” said Eric Vaughn, Jailer for the Simpson County Detention Center in Kentucky. “By adopting this incredible technology into our systems, we hope it shows our commitment to keeping both our inmates and staff safe and healthy.”
“Knowing that we have the same technology that is deployed in healthcare facilities must serve as a comfort to the families with relatives who are currently incarcerated,” said David Knight, Jailer at the McCracken County Regional Detention Center in Kentucky. “We believe that by deploying this technology, we can offer better care to anyone under our supervision.”
“Just because someone is serving time doesn’t make them any less human,” added Eric Vaughn. “We want to treat our population with the services that anyone else under medical duress would receive and Xandar Kardian’s technology is helping us do that.”
