Rhaeos, Inc. aims to improve the care of 1M Americans today living with hydrocephalus, a neurosurgical condition caused by the accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the brain. Implantable shunts, the gold standard treatment in a $2B market, often fail and lead to multiple trips to the emergency room. Patients with failed shunts show nonspecific symptoms, including headaches, nausea, and dizziness. CT scans are used for diagnosis, but are inconclusive, expensive, 3and expose patients to harmful radiation. To address this problem, Rhaeos is developing FlowSense, a wireless, noninvasive thermal flow sensor that can be mounted on a patient’s skin overlying the shunt to detect the presence and magnitude of CSF in a matter of minutes as opposed to waiting for x-ray or CT imaging that can take an hour or more. With FlowSense, an FDA designated breakthrough device, the monitoring of shunt function can occur in clinics, in-patient settings, emergency departments, and homes, obviating the need for unnecessary imaging, hospital visits, and admissions leading to significant cost savings for the healthcare system.
