Partnering opportunity

A UK SME is looking for neonatal and paediatric hospitals for vital-sign remote monitoring collaboration under a technical cooperation agreement.

Summary

The British SME is developing a remote monitoring diagnostic device and ecosystem for infants. This ecosystem comprises a wearable device to capture clinical vital signs and a bespoke software platform to analyse real-time data, supported by a 24/7 medical assistance call centre. The company is seeking collaboration with leading neonatal/paediatric hospitals to carry out further research on infants using this device, and the data, under a technical cooperation agreement.

Partner sought

The UK company is seeking collaboration with leading neonatal and paediatric hospitals to further develop and carry out research around infants between 0-24months. The purpose of the research would be to test the remote monitoring diagnostic device, supporting infants with chronic diseases, such as: sudden death syndrome, respiratory disease, seizure, diarrhoea, sepsis, pneumonia, asphyxia. The main benefits for the potential hospitals' partners are: routine vital-sign monitoring on the ward; reduced length of stay in hospitals; reduced re-admissions or the drain on hospital. The company is willing to engage with hospitals from any country in Europe and in the international market. The envisaged collaboration would be under a technical cooperation agreement.

Description

Infants are at higher risk of complications when suffering from a medical condition. Thus, detecting any signs early is critical to allow rapid onset of treatment. However, today there are no efficient methods to monitor infant vital signs 24/7 that allow having a clear image of the exact ongoing condition. Although some systems are available for use in clinical settings, there is not yet an option for parents to monitor signs reliably at home. Thus, paediatrics triage is not yet possible. The UK company, based in London has developed a clinical health infant monitoring ecosystem. The ecosystem encloses a wearable device to capture clinical signs, a bespoke software to analyse the data captured, an app, and a medical assistance call centre. The technology will remotely monitor vital signs: temperature, respiration, pulse, oxygen levels, movement, blood pressure, circadian rhythms. The system is conceived to be released in 2 forms i) a medical system for use under clinical supervision, and ii) a consumer system for open use without prescription. The UK company is now seeking collaboration with leading neonatal and paediatric hospitals to further develop and carry out research on infants between 0-24 months. The purpose of the research would be to test the remote monitoring diagnostic device and ecosystem. The envisage collaboration would be under a technical cooperation agreement.

Advantages and innovations

The technology classifies as class 11b wearable remote infant monitoring device and it has been developed to carry out reliable longitudinal monitoring of infants between 0-24 months. Other advantages include: Accuracy of biometric readings: the product will be the first clinical device of its kind to give the highest accuracy in real-time vital signs readings (over 90% accuracy) over a sustained period. Cost reduction in public and private health sectors: the product will allow healthcare providers to triage patients to provide targeted care, thereby reducing care provision costs by reducing re-admissions by at least 60%.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
