BioSig Technologies, Mayo Clinic partner
Friday, March 17, 2017
BioSig Technologies, a medical device company developing the PURE EP System, a proprietary platform designed to address an unmet technology need for the $4 billion electrophysiology (EP) marketplace, has signed a 10-year strategic agreement with Mayo Clinic and Mayo Clinic Ventures. This new, expanded collaboration with Mayo builds upon the work realized under the Advanced Clinical Research Program that was signed with Mayo Clinic in March 2016.
BioSig intends to work closely with Drs. Samuel Asirvatham and K. L. Venkatachalam, Mayo electrophysiologists, to develop advanced clinical features and applications for its PURE EP System, as well as to leverage the company’s core competency in physiologic signal processing to develop future technologies. Mayo is expected to contribute know-how, intellectual property and clinical support to the partnership. The company expects joint patent filings to come out of the relationship.
Kenneth L. Londoner, executive chairman and founder, commented, “We are pleased to strengthen and broaden our relationship with Mayo Clinic and Mayo Ventures to grow our innovation capabilities and deliver superior medical technology.”
Greg Cash, president and CEO, added, “Our experience working with Drs. Asirvatham and Venkatachalam has been outstanding and has resulted in three peer reviewed publications to-date. Adding innovation and intellectual property to the equation should raise this collaboration to a whole new level, likely resulting in better diagnosis and treatment of complex arrhythmias in many patients.”
