What is Albus Health?
Albus Health (registered as ‘BreatheOx Limited’) is a spinout company from the University of Oxford developing systems to predict and help prevent asthma attacks.
Why do we do what we do?
Asthma affects the lives of over 330 million people globally. In the UK alone, every 3 seconds someone has a potentially life-threatening asthma attack resulting in a deep patient and economic impact, with two thirds of the deaths being preventable. One of the key reasons for this is the failure in objectively monitoring symptoms and identifying early warning signs at home. Of the nearly 1400 people in the UK who die due to asthma each year because of Asthma, nearly 45% die before they even reach the hospital.
We have developed a small non-contact table top device that monitors respiratory symptoms at home without the patients having to do or wear anything. Our algorithms convert the information from remote wireless sensors in the device to clinically relevant information using signal processing and machine learning. We are developing tools to track the early warning signs and enable patients (and their families) to take the necessary action at home and in time to prevent attacks.
What have we done so far?
Within 2 years of starting the company, we have developed and launched our first product and secured major grants and VC funding. We have secured a contract to supply our technology for a clinical trial with one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world.
We have won multiple awards, including two innovation awards from the UK government and competition by US Embassy, and are a part of the first cohort at LEV8 Accelerator at the Oxford Foundry.
