Sensome has developed a revolutionary sensing technology that combines impedance-based micro-sensors with machine learning algorithms to instantly identify biological tissues upon contact with an unequaled predictive reliability. Its first application is the Clotild® connected guidewire for the treatment of ischemic stroke. Sensome's sensor technology can be deployed in multiple other medical fields, such as interventional cardiology and oncology.
In January of 2020, Sensome raised a $9 Million B Round with equity investment from Asahi Intecc, which will go towards testing the clinical performance of their first product, the Clotild® connected guidewire which will be used for the treatment of ischemic stroke. Ischemic stroke can now be treated by removing the clot blocking the brain blood vessel using mechanical thrombectomy devices. At the current moment, the clot is only successfully removed on the first attempt in one of every three cases. Sensome's new technology aims to greatly increase the chances by providing information on the clot thanks to the integration of Sensome’s tissue sensor into a guidewire.
