Hemoflow is a non-invasive device that helps doctors save lives by providing real time and trending blood flow monitoring of injured limbs.
Hemoflow is placed on the injured limb at the ankle or wrist. Light
emitters & detectors are used to collect 32 data points a second.
The data collected is run through our proprietary software
& deep learning artificial intelligence to determine the
hemodynamics in the limb.
The outputs of our diagnostic engine are displayed in a user interface for
physicians to make key recommendations for a patient.
Monitoring perfusion and the nuances of hemodynamics in the extremity is incredibly difficult for caregivers. One of these such ailments is Acute Compartment Syndrome (ACS). ACS occurs when the tissue pressure within a muscle compartment exceeds the perfusion pressure resulting in the crushing of veins and nerves in the limb. This is commonly caused by fractures, burns, and other trauma related injuries to limbs.
The current standard of care is inserting a 16-gauge needle into the muscle compartment every few hours to monitor the pressure over time. Many physicians are reluctant to use this device unless ACS is obvious.
Watch current diagnosis
An emergency fasciotomy must be performed on the patient. A fasciotomy is a highly invasive surgical procedure where the muscle compartment is cut open to relieve tension and pressure.
Watch a fasciotomy
Patients are often too quickly recommended for emergency fasciotomies. The US Department of Defense estimates that 85% of conducted fasciotomies are perfromed unnecessarily.
Meet the people responsible for making the magic happen.
Steven received his Bachelor of Science degree with an emphasis in Sports Medicine and Biology from Purdue University. Graduating as a Certified Athletic Trainer, he gained a thorough understanding of common medical malpractice and diagnostic procedure for compartment syndrome. Using his understanding of medicine, he attended Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law, where he studied entrepreneurship law, medical device regulation, and intellectual property law.
