Kalamazoo, Mich.-based medical device company Stryker introduced ProCuity, the industry's first completely wireless hospital bed, in an Oct. 19 press release.

ProCuity was designed to reduce in-hospital falls and improve nurse workflow efficiency, the statement said. It can connect to nurse call systems without cables or wires and can be equipped with fully wireless features. Touchscreens and other key components are expected to make caregivers' workflows more efficient.

"Patient safety is at the foundation of everything we do at Stryker," Jessica Mathieson, vice president and general manager of acute care at Stryker, said in a statement. "With rising acuity rates leading to increased bed demand, coupled with the continuing challenge of in-hospital falls, we needed to find a solution to further enhance our response to some of today's most pressing healthcare challenges. Leveraging our long history in innovation, ProCuity is the culmination of years of extensive research and feedback from nurses and other healthcare professionals to create what is truly a 'brilliance in a bed' solution. It was designed to improve patient outcomes and assist caregivers for years to come."
