Presenting companies

myBiometry- Asthma attacks are the primary driver of adverse outcomes and costs. If deteriorating asthma is detected early enough, attacks can be prevented by self-adjusting medications and avoiding triggers. Today, patients rely on written symptom diaries and lung function to detect changes in asthma. Symptoms and lung function begin to deteriorate 2-3 days before an attack, and medications take 1-2 weeks to have full therapeutic effect. Even if patients accurately track themselves, they can’t identify deteriorating asthma early enough that interventions prevent attacks. myBiometry's solution identifies patients at risk of an attack up to 20 days before symptoms and lung function. We combine a patented sensor, connected device, and app to measure a breath biomarker of airway inflammation that provides an early warning of deteriorating asthma up to 20 days before symptoms and lung function. This data empowers patients to identify deteriorating asthma early so simple interventions can prevent attacks.

Rocket VR Health- Rocket VR Health is a digital health platform that offers virtual reality therapeutic experiences and programs. We are transforming the mental health treatment landscape by offering immersive live support groups, interactive mindfulness meditations, and evidence-based therapy programs.
