Inicare Nura is a wearable, wireless system for monitoring vital signs of patients outside of intensive care.

By using a smart strap worn on the patient’s wrist, Inicare Nura accurately and reliably monitors and reports heart rate, blood pressure, saturation and temperature providing data every ten minutes. By notifying hospital staff of changes in patients’ vital signs, Inicare Nura brings care when and where it is needed.

free up time to spend with the patient

In general care areas of the hospital, vital signs are typically taken during routine observation rounds once every eight hours. By automating manual vital signs measurements by nursing staff Inicare Nura helps to reduce the number of repeating tasks, freeing up time to spend with the patient. The patient priority index helps to efficiently bring the nurse to a patient when needed.

Detection of patient deterioration

If a patient deteriorates between observation rounds the warning signs can go undetected for hours, potentially leading to serious and costly consequences. Inicare Nura helps to detect early signs of deterioration, notify nursing staff allowing timely intervention.


The Inicare Nura system is intended for use in low acuity wards in hospitals: patients who are currently not on automated monitoring but who are at risk of deterioration. This includes patients on general wards, post-operative surgery wards and patients waiting before and after treatment in emergency departments.

The Inicare Nura solution

Inicare Smart Strap

The Inicare Smart Strap provides accurate and continuous monitoring of four key indicators of vital function: heart-rate (HR), blood pressure (BP) saturation (Sp02) and temperature (T). The Inicare Smart Strap wirelessly communicates the function data via safe and secure low power wireless communication to the Inicare Smart Box, placed right next to the bed.

Transmits HR, BP, Sp02 & T

6-8 day battery life

Lightweight, hygienic and comfortable for patients

Showerproof (IP67)

The Inicare Smart Box

Bedside control

Connects to hospital LAN/Wi-Fi

When the Inicare Smart Box receives the sensor data from the Smart Strap, the smart algorithms calculate accurate and actual vital function values of the patient. The data can be accessed from the bed side but is also shared with EHR and visualized in the ward.

Inicare Server

Inicare Nura accurately and reliably monitors and transmits patients’ vital signs every 15 minutes. Notifications of patient deterioration, patient vital history and current vital signs can be viewed at nursing stations or at the bedside.

The Inicare server is connected into the hospital IT system to allow patient vital function data to be seamlessly shared with clinical staff where and when they need it most.

Inicare Nura uses industry standard HL7 protocols to easily integrate with the hospital admission, discharge & transfer systems and electronic health records.

Inicare Nura allows the ability to calculate an intelligent patient priority score, extending the Early Warning Score (EWS) to be able to deliver the care that is needed, when it is needed. The time since the last vital function measurement is clearly displayed. The Inicare iPPS is configurable to match your hospital’s observation policy.
