Cloud DX Awarded Silver at the 2021 Edison Awards

The VITALITI™ continuous vital sign monitor is among the most advanced medical wearables ever designed, continuously measuring ECG, heart rate, oxygen saturation, respiration, core body temperature, non-invasive blood pressure, movement, steps and posture. When fully commercialized VITALITI™ will be the first of its kind as a portable, wearable, scientifically validated, medical-grade continuous vital sign monitor for post-operative hospital-to-home patient care. VITALITI™ was originally developed as part of the Team Cloud DX entry in the Qualcomm Tricorder® XPRIZE competition, where the company was awarded the first ever Bold Epic Innovator Award for "exponential technological progress in the field of consumer-focused medical technologies with the greatest potential for expanding access to healthcare when deployed at scale."
The Edison Award builds on Cloud DX's established track record for innovation recognition. In addition to the XPRIZE, VITALITI™ has been named a Fast Company "World Changing Idea" and BNN "Top Disruptor."
"More than 230 million adults have major non-cardiac surgery annually and over 25% of those adults over the age of 45 will suffer a major complication (myocardial infarction, bleeding, sepsis and infection) in the first 30 days post-operative days.

Simply put, this technology was designed from the ground up to save lives," says Robert Kaul, CEO of Cloud DX. "We are thrilled by the global recognition we have received from the Edison Awards team, and we are humbled to stand alongside exceptional household name brands such as Medtronic, SC Johnson, Avon and Abbott and to have our brand associated with Thomas Edison, one of the most celebrated inventors of all time."
