Detailed Description

Update

Founded by MIT scientists, QMedic is a smart wearable medical alert service that passively detects mobility and sleep patterns and sends real-time alerts to caregivers when a problem is detected. By sampling data continuously, QMedic is able to baseline behavior for each user and identify key deviations, such as late wake-up times, sleep disturbances, non-wear events, bouts of irregular activity, and other signs of functional decline. QMedic provides 24-hour access to emergency call center services.

QMedic has received over $2.4 Million in contracts from the National Cancer Institute and National Institutes of Health, and has a 3-year clinical partnership with Northwestern University's Robert H. Lurie Cancer Center/Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. The company won the 2013 Cleveland Clinic Future of Medicine Award and was a finalist for the 2012 AARP Innovation 50+ Award and the 2013 Amazon Web Services Global Startup Challenge. The team and advisors include experts in wearable computing, machine learning, and health IT strategy and sales from MIT, Stanford, and industry.
