ThermoDiab is an intelligent system using a high-resolution infrared camera and Artificial Intelligence to detect diabetic foot complications
In development by MedVie, ThermoDiab received a Seal of Excellence from the European Commission in recognition of the standard of our recent SME Instrument Phase 1 funding application.
Diabetic foot disease is one of the most devastating, serious and costly complications of diabetes. Globally, there are over 422 million people living with diabetes, who have a 32% risk of developing a Diabetic Foot Ulceration (DFU) , which can be a precursor to further complications that may result in amputation. Diabetes-related amputation rates have increased year on year, but despite this, existing methods of identifying diabetic foot disease are outdated and unreliable which leads to diabetes foot disease not being recognised until irreversible damage to the health of the foot occurs.
Currently, there is a lack of a gold-standard technology on the market that allows for the early detection and prevention of DFUs. MedVie aims to address this challenge utilizing its extensive experience in diabetes research and medtech innovation to develop an effective and easy to use device that becomes the gold-standard solution leading to a substantial reduction in both the health expenditure and number of amputations related to Diabetic Foot Ulceration.
InDx is an EU funded Horizon 2020 project that seeks to develop an innovative orthopaedic implant that restores natural motion to patients with thumb base joint arthritis.
InDx is a two-year Fast Track to Innovation project that commenced in July 2019. MedVie assisted Loci Orthopaedics in drafting the successful grant proposal and are Project Managers of the resultant project. The Project Kick-off Meeting was held in Dublin on July 23rd 2019 attended by all four partners in the international project consortium.
The consortium is a group of innovative, world-leading, and complementary companies, who can significantly accelerate delivery of the InDx implant to market to meet a huge unmet clinical need. Loci Orthopaedics, EndoLab, and NAMSA have already started work on the performance testing and clinical trial plan required for EU regulatory approval. Medvie brings its strong expertise in medical device design, project management, and global commercialisation to the project and have initiated a commercialisation plan for the InDx implant.

ATXA Therapeutics – Awarded SME Instrument Phase 2 Grant
“Cristina’s support was invaluable to ATXA Therapeutics Ltd during the preparation of our SME Instrument Phase II application. Her templates were excellent, ensuring coverage of all aspects and leaving no stone unturned. Her timely and rigorous advice during the review of our draft application was of enormous benefit to us, particularly in respect of challenging our overall business model, financial considerations and advising on revisions to the structure of the application. I feel certain that Cristina’s support was pivotal in us securing funding.
On behalf of ATXA Therapeutics Ltd, I offer the strongest possible sup- port to Cristina in recommending her to any other applicants when filing either a Phase I or Phase II SME Instrument application or indeed when filing any other type of proposal. Should the situation arise again for ATXA in making other types of applications, we will most certainly engage Cristina’s support.”
Dr. Therese Kinsella,
Founder & Chief Scientific Officer, ATXA Therapeutics.

We benefited greatly from Cristina’s project management abilities with respect to the clarity of purpose, momentum and organisational drive she injected into the strategic planning and application process and appreciate greatly the commitment Cristina made to ensuring our goals were met.”

I have no hesitation in recommending Cristina and look forward to working together in the future.”

“It has been a great pleasure to work with Cristina Purtill on our recent “Fast Track to Innovation” as part of the H2020 application process. We have felt that Cristina very quickly became part of Serosep’s team and this differentiates her from other consultants in the past. She did pull up her sleeves and did a lot of work and we delivered our application within a 2 week period. We remain very optimistic of our chances despite the significant competition.”
