Caretaker Medical® based in Charlottesville, Virginia, was founded in March 2014 to commercialize wearable monitoring devices built around its Patented Pulse Decomposition Analysis technology.
The company has developed the Caretaker wearable wireless vital signs monitoring system that sets a new standard in portability, simplicity, and medical-grade wearable monitoring devices. Using a small, comfortable finger cuff, CareTaker accurately measures continuous non-invasive beat-by-beat Blood Pressure (“cNIBP”), ECG-Accurate Heart Rate, and Respiration Rate, as well as Blood Volume (for hemorrhage detection), Arterial Stiffness, and other hemodynamic parameters.
Clinical trials have validated that Caretaker measurements are equivalent to other cNIBP patient monitors and heart rate methods. The company anticipates that its innovative approach to vital sign monitoring will be widely accepted in the medical community while disrupting existing patient monitoring solutions.
