Elcam Medical invests $1.5 million in Serenno Medical for kidney monitoring device
Serenno Medical is working on developing a remote monitoring device which helps in early detection to prevent kidney failure
Sentinel will be able to detect early symptoms of AKI by measuring urine output to monitor whether a patient’s kidneys are functioning well or not. Acute changes are complicated to detect and diagnoses are often revealed when it is already too late. The coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic has been known to actually exacerbate the prevalence of kidney failure. In addition, it also allows detection to be conducted remotely, reducing the risk of hospital staff."Our plan is to begin deployment of the devices in several US hospitals towards the end of 2021, in the hope to eventually reduce kidney failure risk for every patient at ICUs,” Serenno’s co-founder and CEO Tomer Lark said.
