Spry Health, a Silicon Valley company, won FDA clearance to introduce its Loop System continuous health monitor. The product, which consists of a wrist-band wearable device, charging cradle, and platform to analyze the readings, provides clinical-grade pulse oximetry, heart rate, and breathing rate of a patient over the entire day. Clinicians can have remote and real-time information about patient status, helping to monitor those with COPD and other chronic conditions.
The patient doesn’t have to do anything except place the wearable on the charging pad when it’s asking to be recharged. After charging, simply putting it back on the wrist activates the optical measurements to begin being made.
“This FDA clearance is an exciting milestone for Spry Health. We are thrilled to bring our technology to healthcare providers and patients to make a positive impact on managing COPD, one of the most challenging problems in healthcare today,” in a published statement said said Pierre-Jean “PJ” Cobut, co-founder and CEO of Spry Health. “We believe this technology holds the potential to not only improve health and reduce costs but also to provide reassurance and peace of mind for patients and caregivers.”
