Application: Monitoring unit and a medical examination system (Patent ID: US20230414187A1)

The patent filed by Siemens AG describes a monitoring unit designed to support medical workflows by collecting patient-related and environmental data through multiple sensor units attached to a base body. A computing device processes this data to create output data that can be used to adapt the medical workflow and is then outputted via an output device. The sensor units include various types such as cameras, CO2 sensors, and temperature sensors, enabling the monitoring unit to provide a comprehensive data collection and analysis system for medical examinations.

Furthermore, the monitoring unit can automatically adjust the workflow based on patient data, including emotions detected through facial recognition algorithms, and can identify patients and set scanning protocols accordingly. It can also detect medical staff members, monitor patient movement, and issue warnings if surfaces are touched. The unit is designed to conserve energy by activating a hibernating mode when not in use and can distribute data wirelessly to devices used during the medical workflow, enhancing efficiency and convenience in medical settings.
