About Us

Wearable devices are becoming an everyday companion. At Sensifree, we are pioneering the landscape of contactless sensors for wearables. We work closely with manufacturers of wearables and understand real-life challenges of new wearable devices.
Our mission is to provide sensors that will make wearables comfortable, accurate and consume low power. Our sensor technology is unique and we are making it affordable for the consumer market. Our heart rate sensor is already available and we are currently developing a revolutionary, cuff-less blood pressure sensor.

The Vision

Sensifree has developed a unique, patent-pending sensor technology that solves the shortcomings of optical sensors. Our RF based sensor technology can accurately monitor heart rate from different points on the human body. Unlike current LED optical technology, Sensifree sensors are very low power, deliver robust operation, and give designers and manufacturers the ability to create new wearable products that do not compromise comfort, appearance or usability.

Sensifree partners with wearable manufacturers, fashion brands and luxury watch makers seeking next generation biometric sensors for consumer electronics devices, fitness trackers, traditional watches and smart clothing products.

About Us

Sensifree is a medical device company, on a mission to revolutionize how patients are cared for in hospitals. We develop continuous, noninvasive hemodynamic monitoring solutions, based on our proprietary NEST™ (Noninvasive Electromagnetic Sensing Technology) platform. Our first product provides continuous blood pressure monitoring for patients admitted in the ICU, undergoing surgery or recovering from procedures. This product offers beat-to-beat reading and waveform display as the invasive arterial line, without the risks and costs associated with it.

Technology

NEST™ Platform

Our proprietary NEST™ (Noninvasive Electromagnetic Sensing Technology) platform is a novel, patent pending, RF based technology for continuous, noninvasive hemodynamic monitoring. Our sensor produces a unique signal from the radial artery, tracking the distention of the pulsating blood vessel, thus generating a continuous waveform that tracks the arterial pressure wave. We then use our proprietary algorithms, based on biomechanical modelling of the cardiovascular system to extract and track systolic and diastolic blood pressures, as well as mean arterial pressure (MAP). Stroke volume and cardiac output will be added in the future.

Key benefits of the NEST™ platform:

  • Noninvasive application
  • Continuous waveform trace display
  • Near real time blood pressure values calculation
  • Early detection and alert of condition deterioration
  • Based on analytic cardiovascular model. No need for human parameters database that is inaccurate

With every beat of the heart a pressure wave is created, traveling down the arteries. The blood pressure inside the arteries is constantly changing between its systolic and diastolic values. This periodic increase and decrease in blood pressure creates a distention in the artery wall.

Sensifree has developed and miniaturized RF based technology that senses artery distention for measuring blood pressure.

Applications

Hemodynamic Patient Monitoring

Achieving hemodynamic stability is crucial in improving patients’ clinical condition. Several hemodynamic parameters such as heart rate, blood pressure and cardiac output are important to monitor and control. Abnormalities of any of these parameters may indicate hemodynamic instability which may lead to inadequate perfusion to support normal organ function. Two of the variables that most directly reflect organ perfusion are blood pressure and cardiac output [1]. Sensifree’s proprietary NEST™ platform will enable noninvasive and continuous measurement of blood pressure, heart rate, stroke volume and cardiac output parameters in patients who need monitoring in various care settings, such as –

  • Operating rooms
  • Intensive care units
  • Emergency departments
  • Post-surgery recovery units

Hospital Blood Pressure Monitoring Redefined

In many situations, close monitoring by arterial line is desired however not viable, due to various reasons, such as risk / benefit profile or contraindication. Our first product meets that need by offering a noninvasive & continuous blood pressure monitoring device, enabling arterial line grade monitoring for extended patient populations. The device is virtually risk-free, and requires a simple set up by an nurse or technician. Product consists of a disposable patch, sensor pod and a dedicated bedside monitor.
