Modulim Supports Development of Optical Technologies for Soldiers on the Battlefield

July 1, 2020

Check out this article detailing research using optical technologies to help manage soldiers health on battlefield. We are grateful to partner with the Beckman Laser Institute and support their efforts to build optical technologies for our soldiers in work funded by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR). Modulim’s SFDI technology was invented at the Beckman laser Institute and has been supported by AFOSR program in the development process.

The wide applicability of optical technologies detailed in the article show the power of biophotonics for monitoring patient health in point of care settings. Modulim’s first product, the Clarifi Imaging System, is being used by clinicians in point of care settings to identify potential circulatory compromise and help clinicians reduce lower-limb complications in patients with diabetes. This is particularly relevant for veterans as the most common reason for hospitalization is diabetes- related complications. We continue to value our partnerships that help bring optical technologies to market so patients can live healthier, longer lives.

About Modulim

Modulim delivers transformative optical solutions that help people live healthier, longer lives. Clarifi, powered by Spatial Frequency Domain Imaging (SFDI) technology, identifies compromised circulation at the point of care through non-contact rapid microvascular assessment of tissue. Clinicians and healthcare systems are empowered by SFDI images to make proactive, data-driven decisions in a multidisciplinary care setting, in order to reduce lower-limb complications caused by diabetes and peripheral arterial disease. Founded by the inventors of SFDI at the University of California Irvine, Modulim is based in Irvine, CA with a team dedicated to delivering powerful healthcare solutions that elevate and standardize health care delivery, while improving patient outcomes. Modulim is backed by Pangaea Ventures, Fresenius Medical Care Ventures, Grey Sky Venture Partners, Mitsubishi Capital, Hamamatsu Photonics, The Cove Fund at UCI Applied Innovation, and Fouse KK.
