AN Inverness-based med-tech firm has raised a £255,000 investment including a Scottish Enterprise grant.
MIME Technologies’, a spin-out from the University of Aberdeen, innovative product is designed to revolutionise the support given to cabin crew during in-flight medical events – it can monitor passenger’s vital signs while communicating with clinicians on the ground.
The intuitive technology captures and communicates high-quality data, and can translate vital signs data into a seamless handover to emergency services.
The investment was led by Equity Gap investors and the Scottish Investment Bank – the investment arm of national economic development agency Scottish Enterprise – will be used to accelerate customer growth and create new operational and technical jobs in the firm. The company has also secured a SMART: Scotland feasibility grant for research and development in sensor technologies from Scottish Enterprise.
