A lifesaving device backed by Bondholder Tioga has been recognised as Runner-Up in the 2019 National Medilink Business Awards for UK Start-Up companies.
Developed by SurePulse Medical Ltd, the heart rate monitor will improve the life chances of babies who require medical support in the precious first few minutes of their lives. About one in 10 babies need resuscitation or stabilisation at birth for a variety of reasons including premature birth, trauma or blocked airways.
The SurePulse VS uses an optical sensor integrated into a Cap which wirelessly transmits heart rate information to the Display Unit. This helps clinicians in their management of the baby in the ‘golden minutes’ that they have to stabilise the baby. In the most critical cases it will mean babies’ lives will be saved or life-long disabilities avoided.
SurePulse Medical Ltd is backed by Tioga Ltd and recently shared a stand at the UK 2019 MedTech Conference at the NEC.
Angela Williams, Sales Director of Tioga Ltd said “SurePulse has been an incredibly exciting project from the start and it’s fantastic to see a great idea go from the research bench to full production – all within the East Midlands. Congratulations to the whole team.”
