AUSTIN, Texas August 24, 2004
The Austin Technology Incubator will provide strategic business consulting services to Monebo Technologies to help it target the home health-care market with a next-generation mobile/wireless cardiac monitoring system.
Monebo, an early stage technology company, has developed a leading-edge approach to real-time cardiac monitoring. The Monebo technology opens new windows into the identification and automatic alarming of many types of cardiac abnormalities including arrhythmias, changes in ST elevation, and other transient occurrences. The breakthrough in Monebo’s patented approach is that the analysis is done on a beat-to-beat basis without signal averaging. Monebo is targeting various segments of the $51 billion (2003) home health-care market with its technology.
“We were impressed with the company’s understanding of their target market within home health care, the extraordinary intellectual property in the company, and the capability of its management team,\” said Erin Defosse, director of ATI’s Information Technology and Wireless Division. “We are working closely with Monebo on a milestone-driven basis to help it become the leader in the home health-care market. The company will be able to leverage our expertise and our network partners in the wireless, software, hardware and life sciences industries.”
ATI, which has a rigorous and competitive admission process, will provide strategic counsel, operational guidance- and marketing and financing support to Monebo. ATI will also provide Monebo with partnerships and access into ATI’s “Go Global on Day One” network of leaders, investors, and professional service providers.
