PMD Solutions wins Irish Times Innovation Award
PMD Solutions was this week announced as the overall winner of the Irish Times Innovation Award for 2022. The company also took the top award in the Life Sciences & Healthcare category for RespiraSense, "a continuous, motion-tolerant respiratory monitoring device that can detect a change in a patient’s breathing before it becomes a problem". The potential of the device was realised during the pandemic as it allowed for remote monitoring of groups of hospital patients without the need for individual contact by pressured health care staff. The idea for the device was sparked back in 2009 while founder Myles Murray was in college studying mechanical engineering at Cork IT. He set out to tackle the problem of patients presenting with unstable respiratory rates for his final year project. The device that was developed can continuously monitor patients and alert healthcare staff to changes in their rate of respiration hours before these changes would typically be picked up by a visual check, which is the current global standard of care.
