Discipline: Professional Concept

Heart diseases are responsible for 31% of all global deaths. Existing blood pressure and flow measurement relies on expensive, static single measurement systems. Flo is a revolutionary approach based on extensive research in the UK and Columbia. Three key technologies; mobile low-cost ultrasound transducers, mobile computing and AI combine to allow a genuine step change in early heart attack and stroke detection. The mobility and low cost nature of the system allows for true beat-to-beat continuous pressure and flow monitoring within the brain, vastly improving diagnosis accuracy and access to greater global patient population.
