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.
Finding tomorrow's solutions for today's medical problems
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.
