Sensifree is a medical device company, develops and manufactures advanced technologies for non-invasive cardiovascular monitoring

About Us

Sensifree is focused on helping physicians in hospitals to do their work better. In developing our products, we work closely with clinicians on the best ways to provide them with the information they need, while simplifying their work processes and reducing workload.

Our innovative technology facilitates easy to use solutions, supporting clinician’s decision making towards a better patient care.

We, like our customers, value affordable, easy to use solutions. We made these standard design objectives in all of our products.

What we do

Our first product implements Sensifree’s patent pending, novel technology for continuous, non-invasive blood pressure (cNIBP) monitoring. This product uses the ubiquitous, low-cost fingertip SpO2 sensor to provide functionality that otherwise requires either invasive or very expensive solutions. Our aim is to extend cNIBP to larger group of patients and make it the new standard of care in hospital BP monitoring.

A Paradigm Shift in Blood Pressure Monitoring

Sensifree’s vision is to create a paradigm shift in the way blood pressure is monitored. Continuous reading of blood pressure will increase patient safety and help to improve the medical outcome.

The merits of continuous blood pressure (BP) monitoring have long been established, with arterial lines commonly accepted as the gold standard for it. However, the invasive nature of arterial line, the relative complexity of the procedure and associated complications, limit its use to cases where these shortcomings are justified.

Arterial lines are mostly used with acute patients in intensive care units (ICU), high dependency units and in anaesthetized patients undergoing surgical procedures. For less acute patients, the associated risk, complexity, and management of cannulated patients often outweigh the benefits of invasive continuous BP monitoring.

In most cases, BP is still monitored using a technology that hasn’t changed much for more than a century – the inflatable BP cuff. Even when used in automatic monitors, it provides only intermittent readings and frequent cuff measurements are not well tolerated by patients.

Numerous studies have shown the shortcomings of intermittent BP readings, both in acute care settings and in the general wards, resulting in missing out events of high or low BP. These events, going unnoticed by medical personnel, manifest themselves in serious complications and even death.

Ward Monitoring
Critical Care Monitoring

A low risk, low-cost, easy to use method for continuous, non-invasive BP (cNIBP) monitoring would therefore have a great value in the treatment of hospitalized patients, going through the various stages of their admission.

Our products are well tolerated by patients and affordable to the healthcare provider. We are initially targeting in-hospital applications in general & surgical wards, and critical care units. Our roadmap includes monitoring of additional vital signs to provide a broader view on patients’ condition. We further plan to expand beyond the hospital boundaries to offer remote monitoring of patients discharged from the hospital and patients with certain chronic conditions, such as hypertension, end stage renal disease and preeclampsia.

A new standard of care in hospital BP monitoring

sensei 200 extends continuous blood pressure monitoring to larger patient populations through the different stages of their admission. Clinicians and patients can now benefit from the advantages of arterial line monitoring, without the associated risk, cost and complexity.

sensei 200 relies on Sensifree’s patent pending technology of analyzing the waveshape of a PPG signal. Our technology is based on the physiology of the human cardiovascular system and the physics of fluid dynamics in the arteries. We have implemented a unique approach of dynamic biomechanical modeling of the cardiovascular system for tracking changes in blood pressure. The sensei 200 provides continuous reading of systolic, diastolic and mean arterial pressure (MAP) values, as well as trend lines of BP values, all in a compact form factor and at affordable price.

Top reasons for choosing sensei 200:

  • Affordable, continuous & non-invasive BP monitoring; fits standard care practices
  • Easy to use by a nurse or technician
  • Standard EMR interface
  • Choice of sensor – use the existing patient monitor SpO2 sensor or Sensifree’s optimized, low-cost, disposable sensor
  • Flexible pricing models at a fraction of alternative solutions’ cost

Sensifree’s Platform Technology

Our proprietary, patent pending technology platform comprises of two main elements:

1. Unique technology, based on the use of standard optical (PPG) sensors
2. Advanced algorithmic layer to calculate and track blood pressure

Our sensor features red and infra-red wavelengths that track blood volume inside the pulsating blood vessel and then constructing a unique signal, originating at the index finger. The result is a continuous waveform that is proportional to the arterial pressure wave.

We then apply our proprietary algorithms, based on biomechanical modeling of the cardiovascular system to extract and track systolic and diastolic blood pressures, as well as mean arterial pressure (MAP).
