Patient Warming Technology

A novel product technology designed to use a combination of vacuum and heat to efficiently transfer energy to the patient core to assist in maintaining the patient at normothermic temperature. The device would consist of both a control unit, as well as a single patient use disposable.

Core warming of patients receiving anesthesia for operations helps prevent unintended hypothermia and tremors as patients emerge from the anesthesia, as well as reducing infections and potentially speeding recovery. Using the foot to warm has potential benefits to enable patient transfers between care settings—pre-op, OR, and post-op recovery room. A license to background IP from Stanford University will be required.

The category of forced-air patient warming began with the introduction of Bair Hugger® therapy in 1987. The global opportunity for patient warming is approximately $1 billion, with the forced-air warming category expected to grow at about 10 percent per year. Our technology offering provides a disruptive approach to this category.
