IF WE monitor blood pressure accurately and continuously, can we save billions of lives globally?
There is an unmet need for accurate and continuous non-invasive blood pressure (cNIBP) monitoring. Problems stemming from inaccurate, intermittent (single-time-point) BP measurement and sub-therapeutic management of BP are particularly pronounced in hospitals, where currently, the only option for continuous measurement is the invasive intra-arterial catheter, which can lead to clinically significant complications. The other option, cuffed devices, provide only intermittent and often inaccurate BP readings.
Dynocardia’s proprietary ViTrack™ methodology is the technology behind ViTrack, a wrist- wearable device with the processing power to enable continuous beat-to-beat BP monitoring. ViTrack technology is poised to surmount century-old obstacles to obtaining accurate and continuous measurement of BP by enabling ambulatory and nocturnal measurement. Additionally, ViTrack technology holds great promise for improving outcomes in 1.5 billion people living with hypertension around the world, who are at heightened risk for stroke and heart attacks.
GOAL 3: GOOD HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
“We are so grateful to 3DS for their interest in our work and investment in our efforts” says Dynocardia founder Mohan Thanikachalam, MD. We believe that their state-of-the-art prototyping facilities located here in Boston, along with 3DS’s product-development-software portfolio, automated platform for clinical trial recruitment, and strength of their engineering, IT, and design teams worldwide will allow us to commercialize ViTrack™ much faster than we’d have been able to otherwise.
Over the coming decade, ViTrack has the potential to monitor BP in billions of people and aggregate this real-world data in the cloud for unprecedented research opportunities for the prevention of cardiovascular disease. In addition to BP, ViTrack can provide heart rate, respiratory and other valuable cardio-hemodynamic data.
The Dynocardia team is deeply committed to improving the lives of billions of people via accurate and continuous BP monitoring.
IF WE give robotic companions to children, can we spark interaction & motivation to learn, play & progress?
Although 75 percent of blindness is avoidable, At least 1 billion people have a visual impairment that could have been prevented or treated. There are 2 principal reasons to this problem: There are not enough medical specialists and hardware is expensive, difficult to setup and non-portable.
