PneumaCare is a Cambridge (UK)-based company providing clinicians with respiratory diagnostic and monitoring equipment using novel 3D imaging technology. The Company's PneumaScan™ product family are revolutionary non--contact respiratory monitoring systems providing richer information to a broader patient population. Using PneumaScan™ patients can be assessed while breathing naturally or performing spirometric manoeuvres without the need to breathe into, interact with, or contact the apparatus. Non-contact assessments also reduce risk of infection and instrument running costs.
The PneumaScan™ instrument has been developed by PneumaCare Limited in partnership with Cambridge University, Addenbrookes Hospital Cambridge and Plextek Limited. PneumaCare has been funded by its Founders, Cambridge Enterprise, Cambridge Capital Group and individual business angels as well as grant and contracts from the East of England Development Agency and UK Ministry of Defence.
In 2011 PneumaCare won the overall Best Business Proposition and the Best Business Proposition in the Respiratory Category at the 2011 Medical Futures Innovations Awards as well being a finalist in the Cambridge News Business Awards and a Red Herring European 100. In 2010 Pneumacare was named one of the 'Killer 50' companies in Cambridge UK and won the Cambridge Wireless Discovering Start-up Competition. PneumaCare was founded in 2009 to address directly the needs of respiratory clinicians.
