Ben Hwang, Chairman and CEO at Profusa, spoke to LLAMA host, Peter Bowes, at TEDMED in California.
LLAMA, an acronym for Live Long and Master Aging, is a podcast that explores the science and stories behind human longevity. Guests include world-renowned scientists, future thinkers and biohackers, all of whom have a common goal of figuring out how we can live longer and healthier.
Ben Hwang spoke about the company’s mission to make the inner workings of our bodies more accessible. The goal, using micro sensors, is to gather information about internal biochemical changes, in real time. The 3 to 5 mm long sensors are designed to be compatible with the body’s tissues for long-term monitoring. They collect data, transmitted to external devices, providing a stream of information for long-term health and wellness.
