Formerly known as Odonata Health, Marani Health is an AI-powered platform for remote pregnancy care co-founded by the Mayo Clinic. In February, the company announced an oversubscribed funding round of $3.7 million, for a total of more than $5.5 million raised to date.
Marani is developing a wearable device to acquire fetal, maternal biometric data for use at home, in the clinic during pregnancy, or in the hospital during labor and delivery. Data captured will be transferred via wireless technology to Marani’s platform, and patients and providers will have unique portals to access the information.
The company is advancing toward clinical testing and market introduction, according to founder and CEO Ann Holder. “We are excited about the potential our technology has to change prenatal care and provide clinicians with more data in both telehealth settings and in clinics,” Holder said in a news release. “We are eager to make a positive impact.”
The company also won a National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant of $255,000 in September 2020.
