CardiaVue, LLC

Abstract

CardiaVue is a medical technology company whose primary goal is to improve patient care by developing wearable & portable solutions for vitals monitoring. In today's fast paced world, every second matters and hence CardiaVue aims at making products that allow medical professionals to diagnose patients at remote sites quickly and conveniently. CardiaVue's premier products are VitaSign Band, VitaSign Patch and VitaSign Monitor. Each of these products offers a varying range of in-field patient monitoring, remote communication and diagnostics capabilities. Our solutions range from bands for accident victims used by first responders to determine medical severity quickly to full-fledged wearable 12-lead EKG bands which maintain accuracy and allow the user to be portable.

Additional Questions

Who is your customer?

Our target customers are Emergency Medical Services (EMS), first responders such as firefighters, police officers, and nurses at care facilities and schools.

What problem does this idea/product solve or what market need does it serve?

Our vital signs monitor, VitaSign allows EMS providers to: (1) improve information collection by first responders without additional training, (2) provide automatic patient classification using a proprietary severity index algorithm in emergency situation and offers better resource allocation between Advanced Life Support (ALS) and Basic Life Support (BLS), and (3) improve response time of emergency services, improving survivability rates.

What attributes will make this idea/product successful? Why do you believe that those features will create success?

Existing devices don’t house all the vital sensors to collect temperature, SpO2, respiration rate, pulse rate, and blood pressure in a single unit. Furthermore, these devices also don’t address the lack of automated patient classification and monitoring in emergency situations; and they don’t provide remote real-time communication.
