Actuated Medical Launches My Medical Mirror Companion Case and website: helping Older Adults with transitions in care

By: PRLog

BELLEFONTE, Pa. - June 4, 2024 - PRLog -- Currently, 62 million Americans are 65 years old or older. Aging in place is always desired but often older adults experience transitions in care to facilities such as hospitals (short-term) or assisted living (long-term).  Transitions in care, and even procedures that involve anesthesia, may result in confusion and disorientation that can have longer term implications on treatment and length of stay. Having personal items and memory cues traveling with them has been shown to help alleviate this concern. Maintaining healthcare information and personal items organized and ready for emergency and non-emergency transportation is often challenging. Therefore, Actuated Medical developed My Medical Mirror, a companion case, which provides a central location for an older adult's healthcare and personal information as well as for assistive items like eyeglasses and hearing aids. The lightweight case can be quickly taken with the older adult by emergency staff or caregivers as they transition to a new facility. While in a facility, My Medical Mirror may even help minimize the risk of losing personal items since they are well identified on the front of the case so that facility staff know to look for the items when removing food trays or bedding from the room.

"On the advice of a nurse who studied older adults for many years, we developed the My Medical Mirror companion case," said Maureen L. Mulvihill, Ph.D. President & CEO at Actuated Medical. "It provides an easy to carry case to store medical information, life stories and personal items. We hope that My Medical Mirror will result in improved health outcomes for older adults."

My Medical Mirror aims to mitigate the risks associated with transitions in care, including delirium. Delirium, a short-term condition characterized by sudden confusion and disorientation, affects a significant portion of older adults, particularly those living with dementia. Studies indicate that up to 89% of older adults with dementia experience delirium when hospitalized.
