Cloud DX was honored as XPRIZE’s first Bold Epic Innovator, in recognition of exponential technological progress in the field of consumer-focused medical technologies, and potential for expanding access to healthcare when deployed at scale.
The team is a tight-knit group of programmers, software architects and bio¬medical engineers, backed by the savvy leadership of highly experienced entrepreneurs. After being selected as Top 10 finalists, the original 4-person startup expanded their team, developed key partnerships, and went to work designing every part of their Vitaliti Tricorder from scratch. Vitaliti gathers multiple raw ECG, PPG, temperature and accelerometer signals from the body with high reliability. It continuously monitors all the main vital signs - continuous non-invasive blood pressure, heart rate, respiration rate, ECG, blood oxygen saturation and core body temperature - in real time, but it’s so comfortable to wear that you can sleep with it on. Clever hot-swappable battery technology permits continuous monitoring 24 hrs a day. The IVD platform includes Giant Magnetoresistance (GMR) “lab-on-a-chip” technology developed in partnership with the Stanford Center for Magnetic Nanotechnology, a Distinguished Award winner in the Nokia Sensor XChallenge. GMR can run simultaneous tests on any fluid sample at 10x higher resolution than standard tests.
While their ambitious approach ultimately fell short of the Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE criteria and timeline, their efforts have been remarkable. Since 2014 the team has raised $7.5 million and grown to a staff of 24, with 2 licensed patents, 3 patents-pending, 3 innovation awards and at least 4 incredible commercial products launched or coming soon.
