Dynocardia: Wearable blood pressure imager
Dr. Mohan Thanikachalam of the Tufts University School of Medicine thinks continuous blood pressure monitoring is the key to better predict cardiovascular disease, according to a Tufts University news release. For years, he worked with an MIT team in an NIH-funded project to develop a wearable tactile blood pressure imager. He is now CEO of Dynocardia, which is seeking to commercialize the ViTrack technology that came out of the research.
Dynocardia touts ViTrack as a cuff-less, wearable technology for continuous, non-invasive blood pressure monitoring, according to the company’s StartHub Boston profile.
The company reported to the SEC this month that it’s raised $340,000.
