Take a look of project's partnership.
Globally, 15 million preterm babies are born annually (435,000 in Europe), from which 1 million die. Even when surviving, they may face disabilities, such as neurodevelopment impairment or paralysis. Since their respiratory and cardiovascular systems are immature, they need early oxygen (O2) therapy. Tissue oximeters are medical devices needed to monitor the actual level of O2 supply in their brain, since little O2 variations can produce irreversible damage. However, current devices are adapted from tissue oximeters initially meant for adults, lacking the precision and reliability preterm babies need. World leading neonatologists have been alerting about the urgent need to develop tissue oximeters specifically designed for preterms, to decrease unnecessary deaths and chronic disabilities. OxyPrem is our answer: a brain oximeter created just for preterm babies and providing the degree of precision and reliability they need. OxyPrem consists of (1) a high-quality Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) sensor embedded in biocompatible silicone that is fixed to the preterm's head to monitor brain O2-levels, and a (2) monitor running advanced analysis algorithms transforming the signals into tissue oxygenation saturation measurements. OxyPrem prototypes have shown unmet levels of precision in clinical studies, reducing 5x the variation observed with competitors. Furthermore, our reusable sensor (opposed to the disposable ones from competitors), translates into important savings. OxyPrem represents a compelling business opportunity, capitalizing from the global neonatal intensive care market, worth €5.6 billion and expected to grow at a CAGR2017-2024 of 5.62%. The commercialization of OxyPrem is key to the viability of our company OxyPrem AG, a Swiss spin-off from University of Zurich, born to make preterm life's easier.
Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "OXYPREM" project.
For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.
Send me an email (email@example.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.
Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
