In the sensors and imaging field, UWS supported development by Current Health (previously Snap40), an AI-enabled healthcare company, of a wearable medical device that monitors patients’ vital signs.
Data is transmitted by WiFi to a software platform that notifies clinical staff through mobile devices, facilitating early medical intervention if a patient deteriorates. As a result of UWS collaboration, the team identified opportunities for further collaboration on patient data analyses and the battery life of the product.
In 2018, Current secured an additional $8 million (£6.1m) in what is the largest seed funding round by a digital healthcare business in the UK.
