The CEO of Earlysense, which makes a wireless hospital bed monitor, is evaluating a possible initial public offering next year after already raising $46 million dollars.

The hospital bed monitor, when placed under a mattress, detects a patient's heart and respiratory rate and movement without being obtrusive.

RAMAT GAN, ISRAEL (NBC) - The CEO of Earlysense, which makes a wireless hospital bed monitor, is evaluating a possible initial public offering next year after already raising $46 million dollars.

The company says it's the market leader of the system and the only one cleared for use by the US Food and Drug Administration.

The hospital bed monitor, when placed under a mattress, detects a patient's heart and respiratory rate and movement without being obtrusive.

Reuters reported that Earlysense declined to give precise sales figures, but said it had already delivered over a thousand units and expected to install "tens of thousands more in the next three years."
