Tel Aviv-based startup BiPS Health is looking to change the way patients’ vital signs are monitored at hospitals and at home.

The firm is developing a medical device that enables the constant monitoring of various vital parameters, including blood pressure, blood oxygen saturation (SpO2), respiration rate and heart rate. The accessory is a bracelet attached to two short inflatable finger cuffs with sensors. The bracelet and the sensors are able to regularly analyze the information obtained, said BiPS CEO Ran Keren in a phone interview.


BiPS’ technology nabbed first place last month in a Israeli competition for early-stage medical companies. The competition was run by Trendlines Medical, part of the Trendlines incubator, the Israel Export Institute, and Israel Advanced Technology Industries (IATI), among others.
