Cuff-based devices, which have been used for more than a century to measure blood pressure, are largely inaccurate. Even if you manage to get an accurate reading, cuffs cannot provide continuous measurement of a vital sign that changes significantly throughout the day. Dynocardia, a startup in the Luminate accelerator‘s fourth cohort, came up with a fundamentally different way to measure blood pressure and built a wrist wearable for accurate, continuous BP monitoring.
Mohan Thanikachalam, MD, Founder and CEO of Dynocardia, talks with Luminate’s Program Technology Manager, Dr. Damon Diehl, about trends in patient monitoring and a shift towards preventative care. He shares his advice for entrepreneurs and what he believes startups need to be successful.
