Proximity Health Solutions
Proximity Health Solutions

In the U.S., 5-10% of all patients contract at least 1 Hospital-Acquired Infection (HAI) during their stay. This leads to over 99,000 deaths per year. Currently, there are no commercially viable screening devices designed for the point-of-care setting. Proximity Health aims to develop a silk-based screening device to rapidly identify and isolate infected patients. The mission of our company is to reduce infection rates, associated healthcare costs and most importantly, unnecessary deaths.
