By monitoring the 47 million at-risk Americans, we aim to enable timely interventions that prevent costly hospitalizations.
COPD alone accounts for 1.5 million Emergency Department visits per year and 800,000 hospitalizations. Nearly 20% of AECOPD patients are readmitted within 30 days.
A unique framework to capture respiratory sounds in real world settings, providing real-time feedback and denoising to optimize data quality.
We extract dozens of features - many undetectable by the human ear - to power our best-in-class algorithms.
