About NERv

NERv was co-founded by two University of Waterloo Engineering graduates who were determined to see that no patient loses their life because of an undetected post-operative complication. Our growing team of engineers and surgeons is committed to achieving that goal by developing sensors and predictive models to detect complications at their onset. Post-operative recovery can be a stressful period and we aim to improve outcomes.

NERv Technology Inc.

NERv aims to create a paradigm shift in post-operative care, utilizing the plethora of data within the body, to help in the detection of post-operative complications at their onset. NERv’s platform sensing technology augments existing wound drains and catheters, providing healthcare providers with a smart monitoring tool that can enhance the delivery of care. NERv’s technology is being built with the goal of decreasing surgeon’s response time to potential complications, making patient recovery easier, and hopefully saving lives.

The Problem

For patients undergoing general surgeries, the worries are not over once a surgery is complete. Complications, such as leaks, bleeding, and infection, can occur during recovery. These complications require a timely response to prevent serious damage or death. In some cases, it can take 2-3 days to detect, which is sometimes too late.

The Solution

We developed a Smart Catheter System that can actively monitor patient status, analyze what’s happening inside the patient, then reliably report the data to the surgeon.
