In the realm of Patient Monitoring and Bio Innovation, strides are being made daily. From self-driving cars to landing spacecraft on Mars, technology keeps advancing. Our aspiration at Kos is to utilize technology to aid in early detection of health conditions. Using our platform combined with wearable tech, we aim to identify potential health issues.

Consider the case of the Zika Virus: The Value of Early Detection

From 2015 to 2017, the Zika virus emerged rapidly, becoming a global concern. Initially identified about 70 years before, Zika was largely overlooked until outbreaks were reported in the Pacific region between 2007 and 2013.

Zika presented a unique challenge for medical professionals. Approximately 70 to 80 percent of Zika Virus infections display no clear symptoms. As a result, a vast majority of those infected might not even realize they have been exposed to the virus. In cases where symptoms did manifest, they were often mistaken for other infections, such as adenovirus, dengue, or chikungunya. With resemblances to conditions like malaria, its symptoms ranged from low-grade fever to muscle pain. Understanding the disease’s progression and its effects is essential. Early detection tools, like those we’re developing at Kos, aspire to help monitor potential outbreaks and provide vital insights.

Placing Human Life at the Forefront

Our belief is that technological progress should always have human well-being as its core objective. Combining artificial intelligence, insights from health professionals, our platform, and wearable tech, we’re working to observe subtle changes that might hint at underlying health conditions. Our system’s sensors continuously gather data, and our algorithms aim to identify potential health concerns at their onset. Early detection can be pivotal for improved health management, and our hope is to contribute positively to the global health community.
