Palo Alto, Calif.
Spry Health has created a wearable called the Loop System that is designed to be worn by people who have chronic illnesses.
The clinical grade wearable continuously and passively collects vital signs while streaming the data to an analytics platform. The analytics uses machine learning to identify early symptoms of deterioration before the symptoms are even noticeable to patients. Healthcare providers can then intervene as necessary to provide the best treatment.
Loop System has been proven to improve outcomes and reduce hospital stays, shorten the time it takes to start treatment and improve patient experience and compliance, according to Spry Health.
