A UNIVERSE WITHIN: Individual diagnostics for better therapies

The unique nature of each one of us requires individual and specific diagnostics to determine the most effective individual treatment. This plays an essential role in turning medical data into meaningful health information towards improving therapeutic outcomes and product effectiveness.

We at VivoSensMedical are dedicated to investigating core body temperature as a biomarker. We use body-related data to gain new medical insights for a variety of indications, which we translate into medical algorithms and precise sensor-based medical devices for individualized diagnostics.

This leads more effective therapies while reducing costs and side effects.

We mainly focus on the indications autoimmune diseases, chronobiology, and women’s health.

Our aim: Translating medical knowledge into marketable medical devices for individual diagnostics based on the biomarker body-core temperature.

Paradigmshift

Our vision: A paradigm shift in medical diagnostics with individual diagnostics for better therapies.

History

DAWN OF AN IDEA: From medical need to biomedical engineering

It’s not the success story; it’s the people behind it. The first chapter of our corporate specialization began more than forty years ago, when Prof. Dr. Henry Alexander embarked on a life of research in endocrinology, gynecology and reproductive medicine. These have always formed the basis for all of our ideas, developments and inspirations.
