Computer design of UbiPatch

UbiHealth, a MedTech Startup based in Lugano is has launched its wearable device and software platform for continuous remote patient monitoring. The solution allows for more efficient, qualitative and sustainable healthcare.

UbiHealth is developing a solution comprising of a patch (UbiPatch) and a software platform. The wearable patch is applied to a patient’s chest to collect biometric data and share it wirelessly within the practitioners’ network. The data is then assessed on the software platform. The solution is based on Cat-M1 technology which facilitates remote monitoring of patients who are victims of particular cardiovascular conditions and are at risk of complications.

With their solution, the startup aims to bring the quality and the professionalism that characterize hospitals, allowing healthcare professionals to monitor in real time their patients status in order to make better diagnoses, understand whether they have taken their prescribed medications regularly, and understand the impact they have on the body. This enables Doctors and physicians to handle emergency care and delivering prompt actions whilst saving time on their daily activities.

The UbiHealth team is comprised of Jacopo Pelanda Mazza, Founder and CEO together with team of four other students from the University of Lugano (USI). Pelanda developed the idea after his participation in the Start Summit 2018 where participated in a one-minute business pitch challenge conducted by Pirate Hub Swisscom. Palanda’s performance convinced the organisers, who rewarded him with an admission to the Red Kickbox programe, a three-stage startup accelerator program supported by Swisscom.
