Hill-Rom Adds Wireless Connectivity to HFCWO

Hill-Rom Holdings Inc. has launched the VisiVest System, a connected therapeutic solution for patients in need of airway clearance therapy. The system combines high-frequency chest-wall oscillation (HFCWO) technology with wireless connectivity powered by Qualcomm Life Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Inc., to deliver therapy adherence data that may help inform decisions caregivers make for their patients, resulting in reduced risk of respiratory infections, hospitalizations, and medical costs. Hill-Rom’s VisiVest provides airway clearance by inflating and deflating rapidly, applying gentle pressure to the chest wall. This loosens and dislodges mucus from the bronchial walls and moves it to larger airways where it can be cleared by coughing or suctioning.
