About our project

The problem we solve: Globally, there are more than 500 million people with cardiac, respiratory, neural and other circulatory health disorders. Continuous monitoring and regular health check-ups are necessary to reduce the risk of hospitalization and improve the health management experience of the patients with circulatory health issues. Conventional technologies for circulatory health assessments cannot cater to this need of the patients, since they are complex, prone to human errors, time consuming and requires constant professional supervision. Current wearable players are trying to develop a solution for this need, but again their technology is not of appropriate medical quality and only yield HR data prone to human errors. Owing to the current pandemic situation, medical centers are the last place for the patients with circulatory issues to spend time.

About our solution: We invented a compact multi-functional circulatory health monitoring wearable medical device to address this problem. BioAssistant Vitals provides error-free information and advanced clinical insights on the respiratory pattern, autonomous neural balance, blood oxygen data, cardiac rhythm and other medical condition. It is easy to use and human error-free medical technology hardly requiring any professional supervision. BioAssistant Vitals also comes handy for COVID-19 disease management.

Progress to date:
  1. We invented the technology for accurately monitoring the respiratory pattern, autonomous neural balance, blood oxygen data, cardiac rhythm and stress signals. We built a real-time AI system to further diagnose the medical condition and to furnish advanced clinical insights. We also developed methods to overcome the movement and human errors, and now it can also even automically recognize a human sensing spot.
  2. We previously conducted a full-fledged sensor research to evaluate the accuracy and technology fit. Prior to the development, we filed the patents and secured other IP protection.
  3. We conducted live validation sessions with doctors from different medical background to evaluate our technology accuracy and use case. Every interviewed medical expert found the solution accurate and fit for their use.

Challenge Mission

COVID Problem We Address

A COVID-19 patient generally experiences fast unsteady breathing, irregular cardiac activity, elevated stress levels, decreased oxygen capacity and disrupted neural activity. It is important to track these pathophysiological data to understand the criticality of the COVID-19 patient. If we can accurately track the health condition of a COVID-19 patient, then timely medical decisions can be taken. We have identified this problem and we are currently leveraging our invention to solve this problem.

Our COVID Solution

Our invention provides real-time information and advanced clinical insights on respiratory pattern, autonomous neural balance, cardiac rhythm, blood oxygen data and stress signals. A COVID-19 patient can wear our medical device to continuously track their pathophysiological condition. Doctors can use the data from our medical device to remotely track the clinical condition and the recovery progress of their COVID-19 patient. Our solution is also free from human errors and it hardly requires any professional supervision, hence it enables remote monitoring with more efficiency. Not only that non-COVID people with circulatory health disorders can also use our device as a preventive technology to get early COVID-19 warnings.

Innovation Details

Intellectual Property Summary

We filed 5 PCT patent applications on novel medical monitoring devices, which includes a totally non-invasive and painless solution for continuous glucose monitoring. We entered national phases several nations. We provided link to one of the patent applications.

Clinical Information

We conducted live validation sessions with doctors from different medical backgrounds to evaluate the accuracy of the technology and we also found success in it.
a) Few doctors conducted stethoscope tests to validate the accuracy of heart rate and breathing rate.
(Some doctors chose to use radial pulse measurement to evaluate these parameters)
b) Pulse oximeter tests were conducted to evaluate accuracy of the blood oxygen levels.
c) Some creative doctors chose to simulate the hypoxia condition by curtailing the oxygen supply to a particular sensing spot. They used the dropping oxygen levels as the indicators to conclude the accuracy.
d) Experiments were conducted on patients with medical history to evaluate the neural parameters.
e) To verify the accuracy of the neural patterns, it was also measured in stressful and exhausting work conditions. Some doctors who just came back from meditation tested it on themselves to evaluate the readings.

Regulatory Status

We are taking FDA Class 2 route to get clearance, since there are predicate devices and significant equivalents to validate the efficacy of the technology.

How we will use the funds raised

1. Product Development
2. Clinical Trials
3. Additional IP Filing and Protection
4. FDA Clearance
5. Pilot Stage Launch

Thank You

We are globally the first company to invent a fully automated comprehensive wearable medical technology for accurately monitoring respiratory pattern, autonomous neural balance, cardiac rhythm, blood oxygen data and stress signals. It currently has an in-built real-time AI system, which provides advacned clinical insights and in-depth information on the health condition of the patient. It hardly requires any professional supervision and it is free from human errors. We have procurement and licensing interests from leading healthcare companies. We filed patents to protect IP assets and this only one device among our product line. We also have intent for post clinical trials investment from several late stage VCs and a leading Indian tech corporate. This is one of the quickest time for us to get to the market and solve a big societal problem, so join us in this revolutionizing journey of reshaping the healthcare.

Competitors

The competitive advantages that we have that other players in this market do not understand
1. Accuracy is first and foremost priority of any medical professional that many competitors do not understand. Many doctors told me that they do not want to use current solutions since they are not reliable and test results often change.
2. Multitude of vital clinical information is essential to correctly diagnoise and treat a patient with circulatory health issues.
3. Speediness of the diagnosis solution is very important to boost the businesses of the medical diagnostic chains and medical centers, since it increase their diagnosis capacity.
4. Home based remote monitoring solution should be human error free, since you cannot translate a complicated error-prone solution for such a use case.
5. Functionality is very crucial to understand the solution and raw data does not do any good, since most of the users get confused with just raw data.

Traction

Three leading medical chains in India and several medical doctors were impressed with the solution and expressed their interest in procuring our medical devices. One of them is Medall, which is second largest medical diagnostic chain of India. Another one is Meddo, who runs around 500 medical centers across India. We also had talks with various health insurance companies who said that they might be interested in working with us.
