Biosense Founder & CEO
While studying biomedical engineering at Marquette, I worked as an Emergency Medical Technician in Milwaukee and faced many ECG issues. On scene, I assessed patients’ conditions for respiratory, cardiac, and trauma emergencies. I found it very challenging to set-up the ECG device – I had to decide if I would remove clothes in public or move the patient to the privacy of the ambulance. Patients with hairy or sweaty skin also caused problems with ECG setup. These issues took valuable time and were very frustrating. Unfortunately, some patients crashed while applying the ECG in the field.
I knew there had to be a better way, so I started BioSense. I brought together the top researchers in non-contact sensing to develop and patent the world’s first non-contact ECG system!
