The University of the West of Scotland has supported development of wearable medical device that monitors patients’ vital signs, working alongside Current Health (Formally Snap40), an AI-enabled healthcare company.
UWS helped the firm develop the device to monitor respiratory rate, blood pressure, heart rate and skin temperature.
It works by transmitting data to a software platform, via a WiFi connection, which notifies clinical staff, facilitating early medical intervention if needed. As a result of the collaboration, the team identified opportunities for further collaboration on patient data analyses and the products battery life.
In 2018, Current Health secured an additional $8 million (£6.1m) in what is the largest seed funding round by a digital healthcare business in the UK.the largest seed funding round by a digital healthcare business in the UK.
