Patent Covers Novel Optimization of Care by Remote Monitoring Devices Including Smartwatches
Oak Ridge, TN, Nov. 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Daxor Corporation (Nasdaq: DXR), the global leader in blood volume measurement technology, today announces that Daxor was recently granted a patent for a system to provide remote blood volume monitoring after initial testing with Daxor BVA-100® (Blood Volume Analyzer) diagnostic.
- This U.S. patent number (US 11,801,002 B2) adds to our existing portfolio that includes more than a dozen issued and pending-review patents.
- The recently issued patent provides remote blood volume monitoring through various methods including wearable devices such as smartwatches for a wide variety of medical conditions for which volume assessment is recommended.
- This proprietary technology will help ensure ongoing care is optimized based on the patient’s evolving blood volume status.
“We are very pleased to add this newly issued patent to our growing portfolio of intellectual property (IP) covering innovations in applying blood volume measurement to specific medical conditions and situations,” said Jonathan Feldschuh, Daxor’s Chief Scientific Officer. “This patent protects systems and methods for monitoring patients after an initial blood volume measurement. This will help ensure that the patient’s continuing care is optimized based on their evolving blood volume status. The patent discloses various ways this can be accomplished, including the use of wearable devices such as smartwatches, to monitor patients with diagnoses including heart failure, critical care, hypertension, renal failure/dialysis, sepsis, ARDS, surgical blood loss, and others.”
“Daxor has a robust research and development program focused on innovation and next-generation technologies, including approaches to blood volume optimization that rely on leveraging smart algorithms, computer-assisted clinical decision support, and novel hardware.
