Medical Devices & Equipment
TecMed, Inc. is a privately held intellectual property (IP) company focused on the creation, development, and commercialization of eminently accurate, automated, real-time, cost-effective blood glucose measurement and monitoring technologies.
Our primary focus now is the creation of business relationships with commercialization partners for automated clinical IP which allows for increased accuracy, reliability and cost effectiveness in hospitalized patient blood glucose measurement. The early designs incorporating our core technology and patented scientific principles have consistently demonstrated precision in measurement far superior to current measurement devices and technologies.
Our core technology began as The Sentinel, a non-invasive consumer glucose measurement device. This technology led into the development and refinement of IP designed specifically for automated blood glucose measurement before, during and after surgical procedures and in critical care units. Research consistently shows that properly managed blood sugar reduces healthcare costs and improves patient outcomes. Today, there are no patient monitoring solutions that provide this data with sufficient accuracy, immediacy, or frequency to achieve necessary blood sugar goals. Moreover, current methods are labor intensive, expensive, and lack the accuracy that our IP provides. In fact, the accuracy of TecMed’s patented and patent pending clinical measurement IP has been demonstrated in more than 30 human trials. In this unserved global market, currently valued at nearly $3B, we are the only organization that has met the current US government regulatory specifications for glucose measurement accuracy in critical care environments.
Over 380 shareholders have invested more than $67M in the creation and refinement of core technologies for utilization in this $15B industry. As we transition from research and development to marketing, we are actively seeking commercialization partners. Our IP for non-invasive consumer, automated clinical patient, and other medical measurement and monitoring designs are ready to be transferred to others for utilization in adaptive medical device design development, manufacturing and monetization.

Automated Surgical and Critical Care Glucose Measurement IP – The “Clinical Sentinel IP”
TecMed’s automated perioperative and critical care glucose management IP is a highly advanced measurement and monitoring platform that is now ready to be commercialized to others for final design development, manufacture, and distribution. This refined IP provides our commercialization partners a flexible platform that can be built into existing patient monitoring systems or as a stand-alone design. The patented and patent pending core intellectual property has repeatedly demonstrated accuracy exceeding all current and proposed regulatory measurement specifications for critical and intensive care patient monitoring.
Non-Invasive Consumer Diabetic Blood Glucose Monitor – The “Consumer Sentinel IP”
Product development has also continued for additional device designs and applications that are in various stages of development including diabetic self-monitoring called the Consumer Sentinel IP. This IP represents a fundamental departure from the expensive, inconvenient, and painful fingerstick method. In vivo human studies have validated TecMed’s method and instrumentation for non-invasive glucose measurement. This IP is designed to provide the user an accurate and direct readout of blood glucose levels within seconds as often as necessary or desired without additional cost for disposables.
