In an effort to better protect both hospital personnel and intensive care unit patients, Miku, the industry’s leading contact-free baby monitor, announced today an accelerated program to equip hospitals nationwide with its real-time respiration monitoring system. Notables such as actress Octavia Spencer and the William, Jeff and Jennifer Gross Foundation have rallied to work hand in hand with Miku in the donation of these monitors to hospitals including Mission Hospital of Mission Viejo, CA, Central Alabama’s Baptist Health system, and New York’s Montefiore Health System, respectively. To date, Miku has installed its award-winning monitors in health care facilities around the country with many more establishments planned amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic.

“It was incredibly important to me to find a way to help my communities during this pandemic and I was lucky enough to find and team up with the founders of Miku to provide state-of-the-art monitors to the most vulnerable people affected by COVID-19,” Spencer shared. “Miku is working to put monitors into hospitals and elderly care facilities, including those in my hometown of Montgomery, Alabama, to safeguard those on the frontlines and provide a next level of care for potential and existing COVID patients. Through the tireless efforts of the Miku team, communication between frontline health care workers and those affected will be conducted in a safer and more effective manner.”

“My international philanthropic efforts have been dedicated to systematic health care and expanded access to life-saving care,” said Jennifer Gross, Director at the William, Jeff and Jennifer Gross Family Foundation. “It is extremely sobering, urgent and essential to do the same in my hometown of Mission Viejo to protect frontline health workers who risk their lives every day to treat patients from our community and beyond.”

Hospitals and assisted living facilities caring for infected, exposed and at-risk individuals across the country are seeking to utilize Miku due to both the brand’s innovative technology, that tracks respiratory patterns with unparalleled accuracy, and its contact-free system, without the need for any wires or wearables, thereby minimizing caregiver-patient interaction and reducing the potential for exposure. Miku’s two-way talk functionality also offers real-time communication to vastly reduce exposure risk in these vulnerable environments.
