Nov 6 First Friday Bioscience – It Shouldn’t Be So Hard….

Nov 6 First Friday Bioscience – It Shouldn’t Be So Hard….

Full Title: It Shouldn’t Be So Hard: A novel Non Invasive, Low Cost, Accurate, Easy to Use lifesaving technology – It shouldn’t be hard to bring to market, but it is.


The development of the device is easy compared to the challenges of regulatory approval, and most of all reimbursement and adoption. David Cassidy and Roy Wallen discuss their challenges and their strategies for a path to market.

Arterial stiffness is a proven PREDICTOR of cardiovascular disease! The European Society of Hypertension officially recommended PWV to be part of all routine exams for high blood pressure patients since 2007. Cre8MDI’s new device is non-invasive and simple to use and provides a high margin revenue stream for the while giving patients peace of mind from infections. Cre8MD boasts a team that has brought medical devices to market before and success before. With all of these advantages, this should not be so hard – but, it is.
