NERv was co-founded by two University of Waterloo Engineering graduates who were determined to see that no patient loses their life because of an undetected post-operative complication. Our growing team of engineers and surgeons is committed to achieving that goal by developing sensors and predictive models to detect complications at their onset. Our products will alleviate the fear that can arise after a surgical procedure by accurately monitoring patients. Post-operative recovery can be a stressful period and we aim to improve outcomes by making sure that patients have an uneventful recovery.
Our first product will focus on detecting anastomotic leakage, or the leakage of content from within the gastrointestinal tract into the abdominal cavity after surgery. Anastomotic leaks often result in a cascade of complications that can lead to mortality and adverse outcomes for the survivors. It affects more than 100,000 patients who go through surgery every year in the United States. NERv’s patent-pending solution is a sensory platform capable of detecting leaks within minutes of incidence.
Our solution provides physicians with an additional toolkit to help them improve clinical outcomes. If you would like to get involved, please contact us below.
NERv’s vision is to become a world leader in the field of post-operative care. If you would like to get involved, please contact us below.
