rHEALTH and XPRIZE
We embarked on a mission to democratize biomedical diagnostics. Early on, we had to explain to everyone why and the importance of what we were doing. Today we don't. This is in part due to XPRIZE's shared vision to create devices that push the technological capabilities of current diagnostics and bring them to consumers.
Strengthened through competitions
We believe that our technology cannot be good without extensive external testing against standards as well as other innovations. And so, we deliberately pushed ourselves toward this activity in order to come to something that is valuable and useful. Throughout our participation in two XPRIZE competitions, the $2.25M Nokia Sensing XChallenge and the $10M Tricorder XPRIZE, our team and technology had to meet numerous deadlines, milestones, technology demonstrations, laboratory standards, and user experience criteria. In aggregate, the stringent requirements has given us invaluable experience, technology edge, and a core team dedicated to make this happen.
Personal diagnostics will unfold gradually, in a disease- and indication-focused manner. After successful participation in competition, we are in the unique position to make our solutions broadly available to help increase society's access to healthcare.
A view towards the future
The future is what you make of it. This is firmly what we and XPRIZE believe. In fact, the competition introduced to the word, "visioneering," which is a portmanteau of vision and engineering. The competition goals were meant to be visionary, a guidepost for what the future may look like 10-20 years down the road. Our involvement had provided us the perspective to put the rHEALTH to work.
We are committed to deliver the next generation of the rHEALTH® system into the hands of consumers. It's about managing health and disease better and it begins with an integrated system that can sense the internal indicators. Our solution offers what has been missing in the wearable and digital health revolution—precision, biochemical blood-diagnostics.
