SMART CLOTHING THAT SAVES LIVES IN THE BATTLEFIELD
3% of battlefield deaths are due to uncontrolled bleeding from the limbs.
50% of all the injured in the battlefield sustain major injuries in the limbs. In addition, when user is under stress, today’s manual tourniquet applications have only 67% success when user is under stress.
Product & Technology:
Xmetix’s product is smart clothing designed to save lives on the battlefield. Xmetix smart pants and shirt are capable of identifying and responding to limb's bleeding injury autonomously. Xmetix's technology includes both the injury detection and bleeding control features integrated into the clothing:
A. Sensor mesh technology: printed on the fabric without changing its specifications or compromising comfort.
B. Adaptive onboard software: algorithms tuned to detect and classify user status and the need to activate the automated bleeding control.
C. Self-powered tourniquets: miniature electromechanical elements designed to stop hand or leg bleeding within seconds range based on radial pressure.
Go to market strategy:
Focus on military and police customers. Establishment of partnerships with US OEM. Initial focus will be on special forces as they are identified as potential early adopters for the product.
IP & Regulation:
The company’s technology is protected by a patent covering both the proprietary detection process and the reactive portion of the system.
The company is aiming to achieve product classification of its product as a de-novo medical device in the USA and Europe.
Xmetix’s main competitor is the manual tourniquet. The gold standard tourniquet is the Combat Application Tourniquet (CAT).
