Heart Failure affects a large patient group and poses a burden on health systems worldwide. Currently available solutions to closely monitor disease progression in order to reduce hospitalization are invasive and come with significant upfront costs and complications. PrecorDx, a spin-off from UMC Utrecht, develops a novel, non-invasive, patient-friendly diagnostic device for monitoring chronic heart failure, which can facilitate early detection of deteriorating conditions in patients. After promising results from NWO Take-Off 1, Open Mind, and Venture Challenge (winner fall 2022), the start-up has recently been founded. With NWO Take-Off 2, they aim to develop the technology, initiate clinical studies, and prepare productization to accelerate to market.
