Communication

EyeControl’s products are developed with a patient-centric approach; we are bridging communication gaps to improve delivery of healthcare services.

Our products were developed by patients, for patients, and undergo evolution based on user feedback, ensuring that they are not only cutting-edge, but highly relevant.

ICU communication

ICU communication is challenging, particularly among
mechanically ventilated patients.

Medical staff

Medical staff also express frustration, when treating patients with limited communication capacities.

Impaired communication

Impaired communication is associated with anxiety, cognitive decline and Delirium risk factors.

The inability to communicate while on mechanical ventilation poses a significant challenge. It's identified as the most distressing symptom reported by ICU patients on ventilation.

ICU DELIRIUM

ICU delirium is a critical concern in healthcare, associated with prolonged hospitalization, increased healthcare costs, and higher mortality. The hallmark features of delirium include an acute onset and a fluctuating course, altered levels of consciousness, cognitive disturbances affecting attention, an altered sleep-wake cycle, and psychomotor changes.

Delirium is really a burden for the patients and the staff; and, if we are able, using EyeControl, to decrease this burden, and to decrease the length of stay, and to make the patient recover better, this will be a true breakthrough for the recovery of these patients.
