I-PASS: Intracranial Pressure Assessment and Screening System
CranioSense, MA, United States
I-PASS utilizes three small external sensors to calculate intracranial pressure (ICP). ICP is an important marker of brain health, but there is no current system for monitoring it noninvasively. I-PASS uses near-infrared sensors on the forehead, ear, and finger for blood flow information, from which ICP is calculated.
Primary Application Area: Medical Devices
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 6
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: I-PASS is a highly promising technology by which we can record an important brain parameter quickly and safely. I-PASS can be used in a hospital setting, to replace invasive methods and their associated risks, but also brings monitoring of this important vital sign further forward in the injury cascade.
