Clinical applications & research fields
Mode Sensors collaborates with many medical communities, research funding partners, and companies.
Support next-generation dialysis at home.
Fluid overload is caused by kidney dysfunction, which is associated with increased mortality in patients. Strict fluid management is required to avoid e.g. heart failure. Re:Balans® enables timely fluid interventions and can support home dialysis.
Gastrointestinal & Colon Diseases
Early indications of dehydration in patients with gastrointestinal disease.
For instance, many ileostomy patients are rehospitalized after surgery, and dehydration is the most common reason. Re:Balans® can support early detection of dehydration.
ICU fluid volume management in sepsis patients.
Septic shock causes rapid loss in body fluids and blood pressure. Fluid therapy is the cornerstone in the treatment of ICU and critical to avoid patient complications. Re:Balans® assists clinicians in diagnostic support of early detection fluid imbalance.
Sports & Athletes
Maximizing performance and restitution in athletes.
Drinking enough water each day is crucial for many reasons: to regulate body temperature, keep joints lubricated, prevent infections, deliver nutrients to cells, and keep organs functioning properly. Being well-hydrated also improves sleep quality, cognition, and mood.
Early detection of edemas in heart failure patients.
For patients with heart failure, fluid can slowly build up around the heart, lungs, and legs (edemas). Re:Balans® can assist physicians in the early detection of edemas.
Early indications of dehydration in the elderly with multiple comorbidities.
Dehydration is the most common fluid and electrolyte challenge among people above 65 years. Re:Balans® can assist in early detection of dehydration in elderly.
Validation and Testing of Clinical Nutrition.
Companies and institutions can use Re:Balans® as a reference method of evaluating the clinical effect of nutrition.
Maintaining fluid levels under extreme heat.
In many professions, staying hydrated is a daily challenge. Just like in firefighting, water is essential for body function. Studies show more than 80 percent of firefighters are dehydrated.
