The team at NAVi has strengths in pediatric medicine, biomedical engineering and small business management. Together we share a vision to develop products that assist doctors, and ultimately deliver better standards of clinical care.
UVC procedures have been performed the same way for the past 60 years
Roughly 30% of patients admitted to Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) require a potentially life-saving procedure called an Umbilical Venous Catheterisation (UVC). UVC procedures provide a vital pathway to deliver nutrients and drugs to critically-ill babies.
The problem? Current techniques are inadequate where 40% of attempts result in misplaced catheters due to lack of real-time feedback.
Misplaced catheters often lead to severe patient harm and reduced hospital efficiency.
we are transforming how uvcs are placed in patients
At NAVi, we have a shared vision of using technology to improve the successful placement of umbilical venous catheters in the initial attempt.
Our solution: the neoNAV, NAVi's first product, provides physicians with accurate, real-time localization of the catheter tip during the UVC procedure.
The neoNAV combines safe, proven technology with a proprietary algorithm to improve catheter placement in the initial attempt.
The neoNAV provides physicians with accurate, real-time localization of the catheter tip - making umbilical catheter placement easier, and more effective.
The neoNAV uses a proprietary algorithm to analyse the patient's intravessel signals to determine the precise location of the catheter tip, allowing for accurate placement.
Combined with a traffic-light system, the catheter tip location is conveniently displayed on the neoNAV user-interface.
Using a catheter adaptor and a signal processing unit, the neoNAV does not alter the actual catheter, but rather provides an add-on to existing catheter equipment.
The neoNAV uses safe, proven technology in an innovative way to improve the placement of UVCs.
