Neopenda is a New York City-based global health tech startup striving to engineer healthcare solutions that give newborns in low-resource settings the healthy lives they deserve.

Their first product is a small vital signs monitor integrated into a wearable device. It is designed for critically ill newborns being cared for in hospitals in low-resource countries. Clinically validated technologies have been re-engineered 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.
