Lifesciences start-up companies are in an aggressive mode to commercialize their technology embedded devices that enable transparency in medical care and efficiency in patient care. These include smartphone enabled Fetal Heart Rate (FHR) remote clinical decision assistance platform, smart pill box which connects to a mobile application via Bluetooth, among others.

The innovative products developed by 22 start-ups are multi-disciplinary and are sector-agnostic. The products covered artificial intelligence (AI) blockchain and IoT (Internet of Things), augmented virtual reality for cybersecurity healthcare, seamless billing solutions, Solid Waste Management, Effluent Water Treatment, and Deep Tech based platforms for Quality Assessment. These were launched at the Bengaluru Tech Summit (BTS) 2022 to garner the much-needed recognition.

Majority of these startups are incubated in Karnataka government  supported incubators such as K-tech Innovation Hubs, Centres of Excellence (CoEs) and Technology Business Incubators (TBIs) anchored by C-CAMP, IISc, associations like NASSCOM and IAMAI. The lifesciences startups  and have developed these innovative products using the state of art facilities available at the K-tech Innovation Hubs and the Centres of Excellence across related research labs.  Some startups are also recipient of the government’s Idea2PoC (Proof of Concept) ELEVATE Grant- in-aid seed funding program for startups, said Karnataka Minister for Information Technology and Biotechnology,  Dr  Ashwath Narayan.

Among the notable startups included CareNX Innovations with a med-tech solution : Fetosense, which is a smartphone enabled Fetal Heart Rate (FHR) monitoring device to perform Non-stress Test (NST) & CardioTocoGraphy and (CTG) Test - to early identify prematurity.
Nanosafe Solutions developed a patent filed NSafe mask. This according to the company is India’s first copper treated antimicrobial mask, reusable for 50 washes, with filtration standards certified by SITRA. RubSafe sanitising lotion and AqCure water bottle also developed by RubSafe are claimed by the company to be the  first-of-its-kind active copper imbibed prolonged protection sanitising lotion and antimicrobial water bottles respectively.

A medical technology titled as Svasthya developed by Samasti Health Technologies is a remote clinical decision assistance platform that provides health equity by connecting the right doctors to the patients for timely medical intervention, clinical assessment, triage and care co-ordination with referral pathways.

Aikenist Technologies  provides innovative and patented QuickScan technology which reduces MRI scanning time by half using AI software. Another company Theranautilus housed with the Center for Nanoscience and Engineering at IISc  developed Theradrive and Magnetic nanobots which  reached the entire depths within the dentinal tissues which are mineralized dental tissues to ensure a thorough cleaning by targeting antibiotic resistant (AMR) bacterial colonies using heat- based method that are out of reach with the current state of the art tools.

Labezy Medtech  has a cancer screening device will be used as tool for screening breast cancer through its trans illumination method.

 DoseTap is an IoT embedded  smart pill box which connects to a mobile application via Bluetooth. It contains a casing to store medications for the whole week as per prescribed dosage time and contains an integrated circuit board with sensors to track patient usage.

Mialo ‘s Sensilance  uses IoT to combine sense + surveillance, enabling  computers with human-like abilities of hearing, seeing, reasoning, and learning by transforming pixel and sensor data from videos, images, documents and other sources into actionable insights. In the case of  iBloom which is an IoT device for a prognosis of  heart attack at home, uses doctor-assisted Ai and drone delivery of first aid AED defibrillator devices at home.
