Multisensor Diagnostics (MDx) is a diversified health and wellness management company enabled by an innovative device and supported by proprietary software.
Vital signs are an important component of monitoring dementia patients. They help determine the effectiveness of treatment protocols, provide critical information needed to make life-saving decisions, and confirm feedback on treatments performed. Accurate, documented vital signs are a very important part of assisting caregivers in better understanding the patient health status.
But, today, dementia patients don’t get access to all the vital signs associated with their disease and co-morbidities. Even if devices are provided, they are expensive, bulky, requires training and assistance, and definitely need technology assistance of connectivity to a smart device (phone or tablet).
The only three options that are currently available to them are.
Going to the hospital to get your vitals checked, but you cannot take all those bulky devices home.
Alternatively, you could use single home monitoring devices, like BP cuff, pulse ox, thermometer, but you are not monitoring everything that is associated with the disease.
The third and most effective approach is to use devices that can measure everything associated with a dementia patient but it significantly lacks patient adherence.
Ultimately, patients get re-hospitalized or visit ED frequently.
That is exactly why we created MouthLab, a non-invasive, RAPID MEDICAL ASSESSMENT device that measure multiple vital health parameters in 30 seconds and send data to the provider in real-time. We put together a cadre of tools essential for monitoring and managing dementia patients at the comfort of their home.
Patient use our single, rapid medical assessment device, MouthLab, rapidly and non-invasively measures respiratory-rate and pattern, pulse-rate, electrocardiogram, SpO2, temperature, blood pressure, dehydration, and spirometric lung functions in less than a minute. Our software supports seamless connectivity with providers, patients and caregivers, and unifies all aspects of patients’ health in a single place.
A tool like this even if its use irregularly gives more meaningful data points to the provider then the current tools. Our AI-powered triaging system helps guide through the care management process and enable early identification of clinical deterioration, early enough to intervene and provide appropriate care at home.
And we have shown the accuracy through a randomized clinical trial with 52 patients at Johns Hopkins. We found sensitivity and specificity of our device close to the Gold Standard. We also published the study at the reputed Annals of Biomedical Engineering Journal.
The market for MouthLab is Tremendous, once we achieve success in the dementia market we aim to target several other chronic conditions.
The current options are focus on providing multiple peripheral devices that are complicated, expensive, and often requires special training and assistance. Instead, we are providing patients with a single device that is easy to use. In addition to providing significant cost and time reduction, we provide value to the stakeholders by improving patient adherence. We also inbuilt an IoT technology that is integrated into our device, so we are using the cellular network or LTE-M technology to send data in real-time to the providers without the need for a smart device (cellphone or tablet).
We have gotten great traction so far and featured in more than 80 prominent media outlets. And have participated in more than 26 global competitions and won more than 11 prestigious awards, including an opportunity to meet Joe Biden to be a part of his moonshot initiatives.
We partner with industry leaders and health transformers. And, being part of Johns Hopkins and TMCx helped us to garner more traction in obtain pilot partnerships with health systems and commercial partners.
We have a team that was founded by a technologist; and medical device industry veterans who helped develop and commercialize a number of medical devices. We also surrounded ourselves with relevant experts in a number of fields that are incredibly germane to what we’re doing.
We developed a tool to not only help identify and manage dementia patients or susceptible to dementia but also managing caregivers. Because, caregivers are highly subjected to stress and physiological changes due to caring for patients with dementia. Therefore, we developed a tool for better management of both the patients and their caregivers. Ultimately, we believe if we don't take care of a caregiver we would be developing another patient.
We want MouthLab to be used daily to have a significant impact on monitoring the overall health of both the patients and caregivers, similar to what brushing as done to our dental health and hygiene.
The current ability of MouthLab to measure all vitals signs are only the beginning. Because, our device is positioned in the mouth, we have access to blood vessels, breath & saliva, which in turn provides access to many biological indicators of health.
Imagine if a dementia patient regularly monitors their health with MouthLab, they could reduce the number of hospitalization by half or even to zero, and ultimately, help their caregivers to better manage the condition. Our mission as a company is to change the culture of healthcare monitoring. I would like to invite each and everyone of you who believe in us and passionate about caring for your loved ones to join us to make this a reality.
