Creating a one of kind, brand new medical device is certainly a challenge and comes with many, many, many revisions! Throughout our development stage we have been naming the different components of our device. Though the technology evolves the name has stayed the same for our senors: the eggs!
We are extremely encouraged by the evolution of the technology and functions of “the egg” from our first prototype up to our final ” MAP” Milestone sensor. We will begin using it to capture patient data soon!
“We can Measure Pulse Wave Velocity!” – Cre8MDI
Pulse Wave Velocity is a crucial measurement to determine the health of your arteries. Our device is simple, easy to use, and delivers a reliable measurement. Although the measurement of arterial stiffness has been validated for hundreds of years, using PWV continues to gain momentum in publications.

- Total > 3500 in 9 years
- 2015 –> 940
Cre8MDI has been chosen as an M2D2 $100K Challenge finalist to make a presentation in a live pitch-off event on March 23rd. Finalists will be vying for a total of $100K in services and prizes from BD, Boston Scientific, M2D2, Mintz Levin, MPR, Omni Components, and R&Q.
Chief Business Officer, Roy Wallen, will be presenting about our Cardio 1:1 device and sharing our plans for market penetration. Winners will be announced on April 6, 2016.
The Massachusetts Medical Device Development Center (M2D2) is a lifeline for the state’s smaller medical device companies, offering inventors and executives easy, affordable, and coordinated access to world-class researchers and resources at the Lowell and Worcester campuses of the University of Massachusetts.
Every day at Cre8MDI words like “heart, cardio, arteries, blood pressure” and more are discussed, but this is not the norm across America. Many people never consider their heart, until it’s giving them trouble. As the most important muscle in your body, your heart’s condition should be a priority in your life.
The American Red Cross has campaigned to make February “Heart Month” with WEAR RED campaigns, jump rope competitions in elementary schools, and fundraising campaigns to bring to mind the heart and its well-being. Many organizations and clinics have joined the campaign to bring heightened awareness to the general population.
The American Heart Association has defined what it means to have ideal cardiovascular health. Known as “Life’s Simple 7,” these steps can help add years to your life:
Maintain a healthy weight
Engage in regular physical activity
Eat a healthy diet
Manage blood pressure
Take charge of cholesterol
Keep blood sugar, or glucose, at healthy level
The MedTech Strategist featured Cre8MDI as one of their “Start-ups to Watch” in their recent publication.
ABSTRACT: “The science behind the measurement of pulse wave velocity as a surrogate for arterial stiffness and vascular health is reaching a critical mass of acceptance. Cre8MDI aims to enter a prepared market with a simple, easy-to use diagnostic device that will reveal which patients are at risk of suffering future cardiac events.”
