Sotera Wireless has raised $10.75 million in a Series C funding round. The round was led by West Family Holdings and also included existing investors Sanderling Ventures, Qualcomm Ventures and Intel Capital.
The San Diego company's ViSi Mobile device, which the funding will be used to help commercialize, is a wireless platform designed to continuously monitor patients' vital signs, including blood pressure, without a cuff that needs to be inflated frequently. "Sotera's novel technology for monitoring all of the vital signs will be a valuable safety net for seniors and people suffering from chronic diseases who want to live independently, but be connected to their doctor if there is a problem," said Gary West, founder and chairman of West Wireless Health.
Sotera changed its name from Triage Wireless last November as part of a settlement with Inverness Medical Innovations.
