Current therapeutic modalities for patients with moderate to severe heart failure HF demand life-threatening invasive procedures to be installed (e.g. open heart surgery with cardio-pulmonary bypass), function with unfriendly blood profiles incurring unacceptable levels of blood damage, and lack auto-regulation capabilities. Following a successful proof of concept, Cardionyx is developing a “one of a kind” miniature and smart device which can be installed through a short and simple procedure, whose design provides minimal damage to blood cells and with a unique auto-regulation algorithm.

CaStory helps contractors and developers improve the way they build, by identifying construction errors.

Using a hardhat mounted camera, we passively capture indoor visual data on-site- and later match it against the original blueprints. This way we can spot progress delays, construction defects, and other deviations, thus reducing the project's rework costs dramatically.
