How did you get started in the medical industry?
We build communities for seniors, independent, assisted, memory care communities. I got started in it, partly to see how we can monitor their vitals. In the middle of that a cousin of mine had an episode where he died prematurely. I said if I was able to monitor his vitals, his wife could have known in advance before he possibly would have passed. That then burst into what we’re doing today.
So this is a unique product. How are you positioned in the space?
We are positioned well because of our relationship with senior communities around the country. We have tremendous influence within the senior communities on how to be able to us VitalKey as an early warning device their vitals.
What is next for your product?
What’s happening within the industry right now is we’re moving in what we’re calling Wearable 2.0. Right now, you’ve got wearable devices that are really great for the consumer to be able to stand around the water cooler and talk about what their vitals are. VitalKey is a wearable device that actually captures heart rate, HRV, blood pressure, and will be the first market to do that at a ninety eight to ninety nine percent success rate.
