Adam Spielman, Head of Innovation, Citi Global Insights will interview a wide range of innovative companies and thought leading speakers as part of this series.
Aktiia is a developer of an always-on optical blood pressure monitoring wrist-band. It combines optical sensors and clinically-validated algorithms, helping both the individual and healthcare professionals.
Speaker: Michael Kisch, CEO. Mike is a digital health veteran. He co-founded and ran Beddr, a SleepTech company, and was CEO of Soundhawk, which made smart, personalized hearing systems.
Some of the questions we will discuss will include:
- What are the advantages of a condition-specific device like Aktiia – which focuses only on blood-pressure – relative to a general wearable like a Galaxy Watch?
- Can products like this really work equally well for consumers and clinicians?
- What do these sorts of products mean for traditional MedTech sensors and companies?
