Company Overview

Rubitection is empowering caregivers to support the quality of life of their loved ones through bedsore prevention. Bedsores are a deadly condition that can be prevented if caught early. Early detection can be very difficult. Rubitection’s easy to use hand held tool system, the Rubitect Assessment System (RAS), addresses this problem by allowing users to measure the health of the skin to detect a bedsore at its earliest stage when the skin is still intact by applying optics and image processing. Risk tracking through the RAS’ digital app allows users to optimize and customize patient care to enable effective prevention on all patients independent of their skin color, which can make reliable detection difficult on darker skin tones. The RAS can be used in a hospital, nursing home, or home care setting where it can help save patient’s lives, reduce associated cost, and provide objective data to support customized care.
