Diabetes is a global epidemic that affects almost 400 Million people worldwide and costs the US economy alone almost $250 Billion a year. To properly manage this disease, diabetics need to test their glucose levels several times a day. But the current testing method is inconvenient, painful and expensive. GlucosAlarm is a patent pending glucose sensor that measures sugar levels in urine. The device is placed inside the toilet and it is activated through a smartphone application. It´s easy to use, painless and inexpensive. It fits seamlessly into a patient’s daily routine, allowing the patients to manage their condition, rather than just dealing with its complications.
Each year, some 25 million children visit the emergency room, but 85% of infant visits are classified as non emergencies, and represent an unnecessary burden to the healthcare system. Baby Vitals is a portable mhealth vital measurement device that enables anyone, anywhere to conduct a one minute automated respiratory and rapid vitals exam on a child. The device then delivers these metrics to the pediatrician to enable an immediate remote diagnosis. BabyVitals helps to take the guesswork out of assessing the need for urgent care by providing an accurate snapshot of the child’s condition. This means less trips to the ER and/or the pediatricians office, and more peace of mind for parents.
The problem of patients ripping out their IV lines costs US Hospitals over 150 Million dollars every year. To combat this problem, Lineus Medical has introduced the SafeBreak, a two piece ‘break-away’ adapter that creates a sealed liquid connection between the patient’s access site and the IV tubing. When subjected to a given threshold of tension the device simply separates, sealing off the IV fluid on one side, and preserving the IV site on the other. No blood, no mess. Safe Break improves the patient experience, mitigates risk of infection, and reduces the hospital’s overall cost of care.
