The Сonception of Mobile Diagnostic Device by PERSONAL THERMOGRAPH Nizhniy Novgorod
Introduction. CEM-Technology Company has long- standing experience of the development and market launch of home-use medical devices. Our product Smart Thermometer is created for monitoring of more than 100 diseases.* Every household in Russia and in the worldshould have this device by 2017.
Background and Statement of the Problem.Today, we can observe the boom of medicaldevices for home use. Healthcare systemdoes not cope with early diagnostics andmonitoring of even socially significantdiseases (vascular, oncology, and diabetes).The need for affordable and easy to usedevices for self-examination has emerged.* MHealth world market has alreadyreached 1,3 billion dollars in 2012.
The Solution.Smart Thermometer Conception: measures temperature in any area of the body for monitoring of specific diseases visualizes thermal field of any area of the body automatically gives conclusion for the patient
Product Overview.The list of groups of monitoreddiseases, sequenced in accordance withInternational Classification of Diseases-10:• Neoplasms (C00-D48)• Endocrine, nutritional and metabolic diseases (E00-E90)• Diseases of the ear and mastoid process (H60-H95)• Diseases of the circulatory system (I00-I99)• Diseases of the respiratory system (J00- J99)• Diseases of the skin and subcutaneous tissue (L00-L99)• Diseases of the musculoskeletal system and connective tissue (M00-M99)
Product Overview. Algorithm of SmartThermometer work
Product Overview.The example of use of the Device.Monitoring of the knee joint arthritis(time of measurements is 1 minute). 2. Positioning of points on the photo 1. Taking a photo for temperature of knee joints measurement 4. Receiving thermogram and 3. Point by point conclusion on the measurement of results of examination. temperature with Warning the user infrared sensor about the problem of the Device
Competitive Advantage. • 100% patent protection. • One device – more than 100 diseases. - Examination method is absolutely non-invasive and safe - User-friendly interface and techniques - The results of examination are automatically processed, interpreted and presented to the user in easy to understand and visual format. - The device consider individual peculiarities of the examined area due to drawing thermograms on the photo. - The device is portable and does not have any consumables.
Business Model.• License AGREEMENT* We have more than 10 year successfulexperience working as licensor (6 licenseagreements for other biomedicaltechnologies).** At the present time, we conductnegotiations on license agreement’s termswith two interested parties from SouthKorea. Consumers: all people over 50 have one or several chronic diseases. They need regular and objective monitoring of their diseases at home.
Risk Management.• Regulatory risk is absent.- Commercial risk is the absence of the licensee, it is solved.- Technological is solved.- Technical nonrealizability risk is solved.- The risk of not receiving patents in some countries is present, but it is not critical.
