The body’s response to a foreign element is powerful and effective—just consider how it feels to get even a tiny splinter; within hours the skin around it becomes red and painful, and if it’s not eventually removed, your body will enclose it with tissue so that it can’t invade your body any further. In almost every situation, this response is invaluable and life-saving, but that’s not so when it comes to biochemical sensors capable of analyzing real-time data.

Due to the body’s protective response, biochemical sensors that are currently on the market don’t last longer than a few days or weeks, meaning they must be replaced often. This not only drives up the amount of work you have to do but also means you have to pay a lot more for your personal biochemical data.

Profusa is a company that has developed a product that’s changing all of this, giving individuals an affordable, convenient, and painless way to obtain biochemical data that can be used for diagnostic purposes by a physician. How does it work? CEO of Profusa, Ben Hwang, joins the podcast to explain the details of how the Profusa sensor was developed, how it functions in the body, and why it’s been so successful thus far.

By pressing play, you will learn about all of this and more, including:

  • How the Profusa sensor overcomes the body’s foreign body response, which allows it to remain in the body for years
  • What biochemical the Profusa sensor is currently able to detect, and which biochemicals it will be able to detect in the near future
  • How the Profusa technology can be developed further
