JVP Labs

Home-based care of CHF patients typically relies on physical markers like blood pressure, weight gain and symptoms which do not predict disease progression.  This results in readmission rates greater than 25% within 30 days. Implanted pressure monitors have proven to reduce readmission rates after discharge, but are costly and require surgery.

JVP is the cornerstone of in-hospital management of CHF patients. It is a direct measure of pressure inside the heart and predicts worsening symptoms. JVPLabs has automated the capture of the JVP (and other vital signs) in an easy to use, cost effective and non-invasive device, facilitating effective monitoring in hospital and home.

NXT Biomedical

NXT Biomedical is an incubator of medical technologies, working in areas of disproportionate impact to patients and the healthcare system. NXT has developed a subcutaneous, multi-parameter sensor which measures a pressure in the interstitial space that has a direct relationship to invasive hemodynamic pressures traditionally obtained by providers managing heart failure patients. The NXT IFPx sensor, and associated patient management platform, form a system that provides this novel pressure, alongside a suite of established physiologic variables to empower providers with trending, multiparametric, and continuous data for therapeutic titration to reduce HF admissions with little to no patient involvement.
