About Bulzī, Inc.

Bulzī is bringing to market the first-of-its-kind, clinically proven and regulatory approved smartwatch for early detection of heart disease. Through patented innovations in vital sign sensor technology, this device leapfrogged the $44B smartwatch industry and has opened the door to eradicating the leading cause of premature deaths.

This is a new chapter in healthcare, and Bulzī is leading the fight.

We are focused on integrating this revolutionary IoT technology into the Department of Defense (DoD) market through channel partners and using our proprietary DoD-approved edge-to-cloud IoT software stack to secure a long-term sustainable advantage.

Problem statement

The Department of Defense (DoD) needs to improve the quality and lower the cost of care for its active-duty members, veterans and their families.

Cardiovascular disease is the #1 killer of the 10 million DoD members and costs agencies over 25% of their annual $250 billion health budget to treat. Most heart diseases are fully treatable if detected early, but late-stage treatments are costly and, in many cases, too late to save the person from a premature death.

Active-duty DoD members also have specialized needs for monitoring mission readiness, detecting injuries in real-time, and tracking vitals of injured personnel to maximize survival rates.

Bulzī's novel vital signs monitoring (VSM) technology has the ability to solve all of these problems, for the first time in history. It is based on patented VSM sensors that have achieved first-ever regulatory approvals for use as a Class-II medical device. It applies AI to detect 27 irregular heart conditions ("arrythmias") in early stages (before they become "chronic") and monitors the doctor's treatment program daily for efficacy.

Our disease detection technology uses AI analytics running on the wearable's precise VSM signals to achieve what has never before been possible. This is the future of healthcare, and Bulzī is leading the charge.

Traction information

Bulzī developed the IoT cloud software and AI training technology platform using $2M in non-dilutive "SBIR" funding sponsored by the Air Force and Army. It is now DoD-certified and can be used directly by any Federal agency without managing a multi-year competitive bidding process.

Bulzī secured an exclusive agreement with the first-in-class VSM technology developer to integrate it into our technology solution for the DoD market.

Bulzī was recently competitively selected for four medical technology solicitations from Army, Air Force, and Navy.

Bulzī recently secured channel partnership agreements with three large defense contractors, including the largest in the medical technology segment.

Milestones

June 2024

Bulzi Partners with Top DHA Defense Contractor on $1.3M R&D Proposal

Bulzi partnered with a tier-one defense contractor (under NDA) on the $1.3M R&D Defense Health Agency (DHA) DHA244-D003 solicitation to deliver an advanced IT solution for improved combat casualty care.

Our proposed solution includes Bulzi’s first-in-class medical-grade wearable technology for continuous real-time monitoring of key vitals of injured personnel. Our wrist-worn device replaces a full suite of medical equipment used in a typical ICU. Since most of this equipment is impractical for use in forward-deployed environments, Bulzi’s technology will enable medics to access hospital-grade equipment in the field for the first time.

Our defense contractor partner will contribute DHA systems integration expertise and telemedicine technology to support military medics at the point of care. This partnership is intended to support DHA’s strategic objective to “care for our joint force and those we are privileged to serve… Anytime, Anywhere - Always.”
