This strategic collaboration with BluSim Tech Pte Ltd. marks a significant milestone in Fischer MVL’s journey towards expanding its healthcare portfolio and enhancing its offerings in medical imaging and diagnostics solutions, aiming to redefine healthcare through advanced technologies and unparalleled expertise.

BluSim Tech Pte Ltd. is a pioneering health-tech company based in Singapore, dedicated to transform the elder care industry. Their technology, Ballistocardiography, is a non-invasive method based on the measurement of the body motion generated by the ejection of the blood at each cardiac cycle. Their product, BluSim Mat, powered by advanced algorithms and AI, enables continuous and contactless vital monitoring, including heart rate, respiration rate, sleep pattern, bed position, and presence monitoring, all without wearable devices. By converting micro vibrations into meaningful biomarkers, BluSim Tech’s solution provides real-time monitoring of patient vitals and detect early warning for potential health issues.
