Description

Description: 

A Portuguese SME designs, develops and implements medical devices in an unique synergy between engineering and health.

The Portuguese company has over 10 years of experience in developing medical devices. The two main areas of activity are pressure sensors for rehabilitation and telemedicine/robotics.

Some areas of expertise include software and hardware development, establishing medical certification standards (CE, ISO 9001, ISO 13485), bringing products to the market.

The company has formed long-lasting partnerships with universities, hospitals and rehabilitation centres since the beginning of its activity. Therefore, there is an extensive experience through technology development and national/international R&D projects.

The Portuguese company is developing a new platform that will integrate signals of OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) healthcare IoT (Internet of Thing) devices to provide quick analysis of patients.
Therefore, the company is looking for the following types of connectable devices:
• Sphygmomanometers
• Bioimpedance scales
• Glucose Meter readers
• Blood Pressure readers
• ECG monitors
• Spirometers
• Pressure plates
• Force plates
• Vital parameters: temperature, heart rate and oxygen rate

The partner sought does not need to have all the devices from the list. The Portuguese company needs each device individually, meaning that a partner can provide just one of the listed devices.

The goal is to acquire the signals from each device and build an OEM integrator to merge all the information into one place. The device requisites are:
• The device must be able to connect to an external platform (not a closed design architecture);
• The connection must work well between every device;
• The connection must be simplified.

The devices will be used to collect medical data from patients at home or at hospital.

The Portuguese company is willing to establish a commercial agreement with technical assistance and/or services agreements.
