What is Internal Hemorrhage?

Hemorrhaging is the result of blood vessel damage from a traumatic event that causes external or internal bleeding. Internal bleeding, also known as internal hemorrhaging, is invisible to the naked eye. This poses great challenges for diagnosis.

Up to 90% of preventable military deaths are caused by trauma-induced hemorrhage ... With our rapid diagnostics tool, internal hemorrhage could have been identified earlier, allowing these soldiers to receive the necessary life-saving medical care.

Our Device

Our mission, at its core, is to save lives by lowering the training barrier for internal hemorrhage diagnosis. With our device, life-saving diagnostic results can be obtained and read by anyone, anywhere.

1. Point of Injury

Our device can be deployed immediately following a traumatic event at the point of injury.

2. Blood Prick

The user samples blood from behind a potentially hemorrhaging patient using our proprietary blood drawing mechanism. A finger prick of blood contains all the biomarker information required for diagnosis.

3. Wait 15 Minutes

After about 15 minutes, the user will be able to read the test device to determine whether the patient has internal bleeding or not.

4. Results

No medical training is needed to read the results. One line on the device read means no hemorrhage; two lines mean that bleeding is present.

5. Evacuation

If the soldier is internally hemorrhaging, they will be medevacked to the nearest hospital for immediate surgical treatment.
