“Elfi-Tech shares the XPRIZE vision to create affordable, personalized healthcare through sophisticated sensing technologies. The ability to accurately monitor personal health as well as to securely share that information with medical professionals will truly revolutionize healthcare.”

Team Story

Elfi-Tech Ltd. was founded in 2006 and aims to develop technology in the field of non-invasive monitoring of physiological parameters. Using our Elfi mDLS sensor, we focus on developing a range of breakthroughs in the field of non-invasive monitoring of blood circulation parameters.

The Elfi mDLS sensor and signal processing tools allow accurate, continuous and non-invasive monitoring of blood flow waveform at different locations on the body. This information enables the accurate monitoring of numerous physiological parameters such as heart rate, blood perfusion, blood pressure and different cardiac functions.

We share the vision of providing non-invasive self-monitoring by using lightweight and easy to use sensors with the Nokia Sensing XCHALLENGE. Therefore we aspire to take part in the competition for further development and adoption of our technology.
