Health Canada Gives Thumbs-Up to BBI’s SEM Scanner

March 3, 2016

Health Canada has awarded Bruin Biometrics — developer of sensor-based diagnostic products — with a Medical Device License for its SEM Scanner to detect pressure ulcers.

The scanner is the first handheld device that can pinpoint pressure-induced tissue damage before visual signs of skin ulceration appear, the company says.

BBI also has completed a three-year distribution agreement for the SEM Scanner with The Stevens Company. — Anisa Jibrell
