AEvice Health and THB Global sign MoU to advance remote monitoring of Chronic Respiratory Disease in MENASA region

Singapore, 5 November 2020 – AEvice Health, a Singapore-based MedTech company at the forefront of addressing chronic respiratory disease, and THB Global, a leading tech-enabled home care, healthcare and chronic disease management company, headquartered in Singapore, with regional offices in Dubai, today announced that they have signed a strategic Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to distribute novel wearable respiratory monitors in the MENASA region (Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia). The partnership, facilitated by Enterprise Singapore, would see the AireSone Device be integrated into THB Global’s existing telehealth services to provide patients with chronic respiratory disease, such as asthma and COPD, an even more complete care from the ease of their homes.

COVID-19 has disrupted the access to care for many patients globally, with global surveys showing asthma and COPD being among the most impacted chronic conditions in which healthcare resources are reduced due to the pandemic. With travel restrictions, patients are facing difficulties seeking regular treatments for their chronic conditions. While many patients are encouraged to turn to telehealth services to reduce face-to-face interactions, the lack of at-home assessment tools to complement teleconsultations exacerbate existing challenges faced by clinicians in monitoring the symptoms of their patients.

A Connected Device to Enhance Virtual Care for Patients with Chronic Respiratory Disease

The strategic partnership would allow AEvice Health to leverage THB Global’s wide network and strong presence in the MENASA region to distribute their AireSone Device to patients with chronic respiratory disease. The AireSone Device, a non-invasive, wearable respiratory monitor, is capable of monitoring an individual’s respiratory rate, heart rate, and sleep patterns remotely, continuously, and in real-time. When paired with THB Global’s slew of telehealth services, patients can stay more connected to their clinicians by allowing them to remotely monitor their conditions and to track their responses to treatment.

Separately, AEvice Health and THB Global will also collaborate to deploy AEvice Health’s medical device, the AEviceMD, in the MENASA region. With both the AireSone Device and the AEviceMD in the pipeline to be deployed, both companies are determined to advance virtual care for patients with chronic respiratory disease in the long term, enabling them to control their chronic conditions simply and effectively.

Dr Karen Wai, Chief Strategy Officer, AEvice Health, said, “At AEvice Health, we are determined to drive medical innovation to transform healthcare, improve outcomes, and empower lives. This strategic collaboration with THB Global would provide patients suffering from chronic respiratory disease a convenient, efficient, and effective solution to manage their chronic conditions from the comfort of their homes.”

Zarmina Jafar, Head of Strategy, THB Global, said, “Combining innovation with healthcare delivery is an essential part of what we do. The AireSone wearable respiratory monitoring technology compliments our Virtual Hospital and Remote Monitoring services and will have a great impact on the remote Healthcare Management of patients we serve.”

In setting up the partnership between THB Global and AEvice Health, Enterprise Singapore played a significant role in linking both companies up together. Imran Hamsa, Regional Group Director, Middle East & North Africa, Enterprise Singapore, said, “The partnership, facilitated by ESG, between AEvice Health and THB Global will improve patients with chronic respiratory diseases access to medical care in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia region and allow treatment to continue from home amid the pandemic. We look forward to facilitating more of such partnerships between MedTech companies from Singapore and the United Arab Emirates to drive the development of innovative solutions and support enterprise growth for the long term.”

Aevice Health Announces the Appointment of David Van Sickle, Former CEO of Propeller Health, as the Board Advisor

Aevice Health Announces the Appointment of David Van Sickle, Former CEO of Propeller Health, as the Board Advisor

Singapore, 15 September 2022 – Aevice Health, a MedTech company developing novel wearables to enable remote management of chronic respiratory diseases, is pleased to announce the appointment of David Van Sickle, PhD, as Strategic Advisor.

Van Sickle, who served as the co-founder and former CEO of Propeller Health, has over 15 years of experience in digital health. As Aevice Health continues to transform the landscape of home management of chronic respiratory diseases such as Asthma and COPD, he will assist the team in developing its US commercialization strategy. Van Sickle will also support the company’s efforts to build clinical evidence for its remote monitoring solutions.

Aevice Health’s flagship device, the AeviceMD, is a wearable stethoscope that allows people to easily record their lung sounds and share them with their physicians. Additionally, the device analyzes the acquired sounds for key respiratory symptoms such as wheezing. From earlier studies done, the company found that clinicians who remotely examine how their patients’ lungs are doing can potentially reduce number of in person visits required to achieve the same clinical outcomes.

“I am thrilled to announce the appointment of David as Strategic Advisor,” said Adrian Ang, Aevice Health CEO. “David’s experience and expertise will be instrumental in helping Aevice Health excel in the US market and beyond. He brought Propeller Health to the global stage and revolutionized the way asthma and COPD are managed. I look forward to his guidance and believe he will serve as a similar catalyst to the growth of Aevice Health.”

While at Propeller Health, a digital health company focused on asthma and COPD medication management, the company secured notable partnerships with many leading pharmaceutical companies, health plans and provider systems. To date, Propeller Health’s connected inhalers have been used by more than 140,000 patients in 16 countries worldwide[1].

Van Sickle led Propeller Health through the 2019 acquisition of the company by ResMed (NYSE: RMD) and continued to run the company as a standalone business until 2021, when he became an Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) at the San Diego-based medical equipment manufacturer. He was recently appointed Non-Executive Director by Closed Loop Medicine.

“In the US we now have appropriate coding, coverage, and reimbursement to support physicians who remotely monitor their patients with chronic respiratory disease,” said David Van Sickle. “The new wearables from Aevice Health allow easy, accurate, and reliable remote auscultation of lung sounds and enable more informed management of asthma and COPD at home and in the community. I look forward to working with the team to help them bring their wearable sensors to market in the US next year.”

This announcement comes at a momentous time for Aevice Health as the company doubles down on its strategy to scale in its key markets. The company has recently announced its participation in major accelerators in the US and APAC, including the Cedars-Sinai Accelerator and MedTech Innovator APAC. The Cedars-Sinai Accelerator is a 3 month-program that helps position companies for launch in the US market and MedTech Innovator is the largest accelerator for MedTech companies connecting participants with leading players in the MedTech industry.
