Public Profile

Formerly known as Kai Sensors, Inc., the firm changed its name to Kai Medical, Inc. in March 2010. The firm had been developing products able to detect and monitor heart rate and respiration, based on its proprietary technology. Kai Medical, Inc. develops wireless and non-contact respiration sensing devices. The firm offers Kai Spot, a stand-alone respiratory spot check device for measuring respiratory rate; and Kai Continuous, a non-contact and continuous respiratory rate monitor to monitor, measure, display, and record respiratory rate, patterns, and activity. Kai Medical is focused on developing solutions designed to measure and monitor respiration wirelessly, without contact to the subject, and from a distance in a variety of patient settings. In addition, the Company's wireless and non-contact features products offer significant advantages to medical professionals including improved accuracy and increased ease of use across a wide range of patient groups. The Company's first product, the Kai Spot, is a proprietary stand-alone respiratory spot check device designed to offer a practical and effective approach to measuring respiratory rate, and has received FDA 510(k) clearance to be marketed in hospital and clinical settings. It is not clear if the firm is still operating as a independent small business. Further, a firm with a similar name (but locatedin Texas) was acquired by Empower Clinics in Fal 2020
