Biospectal Wins 2018 MassChallenge Gold Prize Among 1000 Competitors

We are honored to have Biospectal’s cuffless optical blood pressure solution recognized by being awarded MassChallenge Switzerland’s 2018 Gold prize from a field of 1000 applicants and many talented cohort participants. A shout out to our technology research partner, CSEM for their brilliance and support.

Professor Patrick Schoettker, co-founder and chief medical advisor of Biospectal, received the award for the team. “We are passionate and driven to bring non-invasive technologies to everyday devices so anybody can monitor their blood pressure, anywhere, anytime. While we are clear on our goal to make a global impact on hypertension monitoring and improving the lives of well over 1.3 billion people worldwide with the disease, we are grateful that others understand where we’re going and believe in our mission. Our thanks to CSEM and MassChallenge for supporting us!” 

Based on over ten years of clinical research and development in Switzerland, Biospectal is currently developing their breakthrough optical blood pressure monitor app and supporting platform to deploy through common smartphones. “All you need is your fingertip and your smartphone loaded with the Biospectal app, we take it from there,” explains Professor Schoettker. “We want the experience to be easy, accessible, and actionable. MassChallenge is helping us on that path.”
