About our project



This project is a finalist in the American Heart Association Challenge. To see the rest of the finalists, please visit MedStartr.com/Heart

Hi,

My name is Dr. Richard Park and I am a Cardiologist. In my work I used to often find myself needing a way to get the exact size of the blood vessels I was looking at. This is important because to make the best recommendations or give the best treatments for my patients, I need to have the most accurate information and a millimeter, in my world can make a huge difference, often between life and death if we guess wrong. This is one of the many ways that medicine is still too often more of an art than a science. But I realized, at least in one way, it didn’t need to be that way anymore. I created the VesselSizer as an accurate and simple way to solve this problem. We use VesselSizers every day in our practice and think it will help Doctors and Patients everywhere. I appreciate the support of the MidWest AHA in selecting our project as a finalist and helping us bring this idea our to Doctors and Patients everywhere. Thank you for your interest and hopefully for your support in spreading the word or adopting VesselSizers for your practice.

A special message for cardiology Patients: I think I speak for most Cardiologists when I say that if you tell your doctor about this new idea she or he will be appreciative. This campaign is only open for a few weeks so call today or share the idea and website at your next visit. Tweeting and posting this project on social media is great too! One of the reasons healthcare is so expensive is because the cost of getting new ideas like this into practice is exorbitant and that cost gets passed on to the employers, health plans, and ultimately patients. Help us fix that for this simple new idea and we promise to keep prices for VesselSizer reasonable like those at the right.


Clinical Proof to date:

VesselSizer is undergoing beta testing. It will be ready for commercialization soon. The response has been very enthusiastic from all subspecialties: Interventional Radiologists, Interventional Cardiologists and Vascular Surgeons.

FDA Status:

Patent is pending. Follows FDA regulations. Class I Exempt.

How VesselSizer can help reduce cardiovascular disease by 20% by 2020

Angiography and intervention is often the final therapy in vascular disease. This procedure is done hundreds of times every day, every city, every state, day and night, electively and emergently often as a prevantive measure. Any device that impacts this process and outcome of intervention will have huge impacts in patient outcomes. VesselSizer is an important, safe, and effective new clinical tool that will improve this valuable treatment.

How We Help Patients Get Better Care

Accuracy the first time saves the patient from additional insult to the body, fluoroscopy time, and time on the procedure table. Getting things right at first, adds up to quicker recovery time and a better outcome for the patient. Share the idea and website with your doctor. It is important and the life you save could be your own or someone you care about.

Don’t think doctors need your help? Then consider the fact that it took almost a hundred years for hand washing to become common before surgery. Fact is most doctors suffer from “ADS”, but you can help.

How We Help Doctors Give Better Care

The VesselSizer will provide an accurate measurement of diameter and length of the blood vessel, as well as relocation of the area of interest. This will translate to improved patient outcome and less procedure time. Choose from an assortment of options at right or give us a call if you have questions or want to see more studies.

How We Help Hospitals, Institutions, and/ or Medical Facilities:

The VesselSizer is a new tool that will result in improved patient outcome, the number one concern for medical facilities, ACOs, and Physicians worldwide. Routine use of the VesselSizer encourages less product use per procedure and that translates to cost reduction too. Two great benefits! Become an EARLY ADOPTER FACILITY and show the world you care about patient care and are willing to innovate to improve.

How We Help Our Partners:

VesselSizer is a small, new idea that may fit in well with your company’s model. They can be provided branded with your logo as a useful giveaway at conferences or distributed by your company. We are open to any reasonable offers, so let’s talk about how we can help and be helped by your company.

How We Will Spend Your Contributions:

We will use you help to deliver on the promise of our new product. Your support, adoption, partnership, and help spreading the word are exactly what we need at this point. We will do our first a scale production run, reducing costs significantly and helping us deliver at the prices promised in this campaign sustainably. We also will run online and offline campaigns, attend conferences, and work with associations and teaching institutions.
