Novel Sensor of Compartment Syndrome


Value Proposition


Without rapid diagnosis, Compartment Syndrome (CS), or elevated tissue pressure in muscle, can cause irreversible muscle damage within hours. Current catheter-based methods to detect CS require multiple measurements that are invasive and prone to error. The NanoTorr overcomes these limitations and has significant potential to become the new standard method for detecting CS to prevent muscle damage.
