Kickstarter Launch for Remote, No-Contact Home Senior Vital Sign Monitor

Rockville, MD, September 5th, 2017 - V-Sense Medical Devices, a Maryland-based startup company, has launched a Kickstarter for a Welbi, a vital sign monitor for seniors that works from across the room, with no contact, and sends the vital signs to the family members.

V-Sense is a startup company founded by former NASA engineers and project managers. They are using a NASA-invented technology that can measure vital signs from a distance, without any physical contact or wires attached to the target’s body. Their product is Welbi, a vital sign monitor for seniors living alone that sends the person’s vital signs to remote family members. This allows the family members to stay aware of how their relative is doing without prying, calling multiple times per day, or visiting in person frequently just to check up.

Welbi is unique among vital sign monitors in that the person being monitored does not need to wear any kind of wearable, keep any lead or contact attached to their body, or change their behavior or routine in any way. The Welbi unit sits unobtrusively in the room and continuously monitors the person’s heart rate, respiratory rate, and heart rate variability. At any time the person’s relatives can open the Welbi app on their smartphones and see at a glance how their loved one is doing.

Founder Jeff Nosanov worked at NASA JPL for five years, leading advanced concept projects. The underlying technology was developed at JPL to identify victims of natural disasters by locating sources of heartbeats in rubble piles. V-Sense started in 2015 after CEO Jeff Nosanov and CTO Hector del Castillo met in Gaithersburg, MD and realized they had JPL experience in common. CFO Ryan McVicker joined the company bringing a 15 years of finance and startup experience. The team raised Venture Capital from IndieBio, a leading investor in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2015, and from an Angel Investor in the Washington, D.C. area in 2016.
