Bringing 21st century technology and mathematics together, the new CADScor® System signifies dramatic changes to advanced auscultation (listening to the internal sounds of the body).
The Acarix CADScor® System combines world class Danish acoustic knowledge and advanced algorithms into a new method for obtaining a patient specific CAD-score, for estimating the risk of suffering from coronary artery disease.
Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is the most common heart disease affecting up to 50% of the westernized population during their lifetime. CAD is however not restricted to the industrialized world but also increasing dramatically in expanding economies like Brasilia, Russia, India, and China as well as in the developing world.
The value of persistent commitment is essential in medical device development. Glaze technical project management experience is essential to the success of Acarix.
The The Acarix CADScor® System project has been through all phases from the specification and architecture of the product through the MDD approval and all the way to maintenance, support and product updates and in that process Acarix has used technical expertise and management from Prevas, Kapacitet and Glaze.
One of the main challenges in the project has been to bring together the culture from a number of very different persons and companies. Mechanical Design, University Research, Production Facilities and Software Quality have all been coordinated in order to achieve the same goal - of getting the product to the market.
Claus BV Christensen, the COO at Acarix says: "We have enjoyed good overall budget adherence, expected technical expertise, and deadlines within agreed limits. The use of a dedicated project manager is an important asset for any project, to keep momentum, while the client is concentrating on other business. Keeping solid records (hours, budget, progression) and being able to analyze and communicate these important measures built transparency, trust and confidence. So I would recommend to keep that project structure for clients like Acarix, with limited electronic development resources and knowledge."
