Non-invasive Technique of Assessing Superficial Blood Vessel for Occlusion

Technology Overview

This technology utilises a non-invasive technique of collecting and assessing unique blood flow characteristics which can be used as a means to predict the presence of blockages or occlusion in superficial blood vessels. This technology comprises of a sensory device and a proprietary predictive algorithm. Through the use of this non-invasive solution, end users will be able to monitor the blood vessel of interest on a regular basis in an out-of-hospital setting, reducing the need for frequent hospital visits. This solution can also be modified for continuous telemetry monitoring. Such technology can be employed by clinicians to closely monitor their patients who have the tendency or high risk of getting blood vessel occlusion. For instance, telemetry monitoring of carotid artery for stroke prevention. This technology is open for partnership in the nephrology, urology and cardiology space.

Technology Features & Specifications

This technology employs a unique technique of collecting unique blood vessel flow characteristics without the need for sophisticated imaging or ultrasound technologies. This enables the solution to be simplified for an out-of-hospital setting usage and reduces the high procedural-associated costs such asclinician consultation fees, operating theatre fees, hospitalization fees etc. Designed for patients use with little training required, the sensory hardware uses contact-pressure sensors which can potentially be used as a watch-like/cuff-like device strapped around the area of interest.Through this technology, patients are able to obtain a prediction for theprobable narrowing of their blood vessels. To-date, this technology has a 85% prediction accuracy. This technology solution is compliantwith medical standards: ISO13485 & ICE 60601.

Potential Applications

This technology is developed for the identification of blockages in the hemodialysis blood vessels. This technology can also be used for other medical applicationuse cases that require the constant or continuous monitoring of superficial arteries for blockages or occlusion. For example, this can be utilised for monitoring of carotid artery occlusion for stroke prevention.
