Creavo Medical Technologies is a privately-held medical company, spun out of the University of Leeds, focused on using advanced quantum principles to rapidly detect life threatening medical conditions.
Research by Professor Ben Varcoe led to the development of a portable and completely passive medical platform to detect and display the tiny bio-magnetic signals associated with various tissues in the body. These signals can be used in a variety of medical applications and for the detection of a range of medical conditions.
Creavo Medical Technologies' first focus area is in cardiology, on a rule out test for serious and life threatening heart conditions, including myocardial infarction (heart attack). This is an enormous, global problem: about one million people attend A&E departments in the UK every year with chest pain, only for the vast majority of them to be sent home after a sometimes lengthy and anxious stay. A rapid, rule out test on admission would revolutionise the way we treat patients with chest pain coming to hospital.
Vitalscan is a portable, battery powered medical device that can be used in a routine and acute hospital setting to perform a simple and passive scan at the patient’s bedside in around 3-5 minutes. It produces a trace, numerical data and visual magnetic field map of the heart to help healthcare professionals triage patients presenting with chest pain.
