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.
Approximately 25% of neonates admitted to Intensive Care require umbilical access to enable delivery of drugs and nutrition. Placement of the catheter is difficult due to the lack of real-time feedback, and confirmation via X-ray is required.
The neoNAV is the first medical device of its kind designed specifically for neonates. It's innovation is in its ability to continuously detect and analyse the hearts electrical signals to locate the catheter position at every step during the procedure.
