About ResApp Health Limited
Founded in 2014, ResApp Health Limited, through an exclusive license granted by the University of Queensland (UQ) is developing smartphone medical applications for the diagnosis and management of respiratory disease. The technology is based on a machine learning algorithm that uses sound alone without the need for additional hardware to diagnose and measure the severity of a respiratory condition. The algorithms have been successfully tested for pneumonia and asthma diagnosis in a clinical proof of concept study by UQ through funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Addressable markets for this technology include licensing to large telehealth service providers for ‘in consultation’ point of care diagnosis, at-home diagnosis and management of respiratory disease through direct sales to consumers and healthcare providers, and working with global aid and humanitarian organisations to deliver tools for low-cost diagnosis in the developing world.
