In response to the coronavirus pandemic, Spry has partnered with a network of remote nurses to offer clinician-led patient monitoring services for providers overwhelmed by the surge of COVID-19 patients. Part six of our series on remote patient monitoring.
Founded in 2014 and incubated at Stanford University-affiliated accelerator StartX, start-up Spry Health is focused on remote monitoring of people with chronic diseases. The company’s Loop System, a wrist-worn wearable with optical sensors that remotely track heart rate, pulse oximetry (SpO2), and respiratory rate, was FDA cleared as a Class II device in April 2019 and was validated for clinical use at the University of California, San Francisco. In response to COVID-19, the company recently partnered with a network of remote nurses to offer clinician-led patient monitoring services for provider organizations overwhelmed by the surge of patients due to the pandemic.
