Neopenda is a Chicago based social enterprise in the global health space. We are a technology startup company striving to engineer innovative healthcare solutions that give newborns in low resource settings the healthy lives they deserve.Our first product is a small low cost wearable vital signs monitor. It is designed for critically ill newborns being cared for in hospitals in low resource countries. We re engineered clinically validated technologies into a simple novel multiparameter sensor array that measures heart rate respiratory rate blood oxygen saturation and temperature. The low power sensors use rechargeable batteries and wirelessly transmit data to a central monitor which alerts nurses when a newborn is in distress. We are currently working towards our first field deployment at our partner hospital in Uganda.
