Bloomer Tech, a Cambridge, Mass.-based Health technology company, raised $3M in a seed funding round.
The round was led by Material Impact, joined by One Brave Idea and several prominent angels that include John Abele, co-founder of Boston Scientific. Adam Sharkawy, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Material Impact and a former cardiovascular healthcare executive, will be serving as Bloomer’s Chair of the Board.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its pilot program, collect key clinical data and further develop the commercial product and user experience.
Led by Alicia Chong, CEO, Bloomer is tackling the leading cause of death in women with an electrocardiogram device that looks and feels like a bra. By embedding patented, medical-grade fabric sensors and machine learning algorithms into a garment that women wear every day, the company provides users and doctors with access to heart health data. Bloomer’s patented technology platform leverages over 20 years of evidence-based research showing sex and ethnicity-related differences in the cardiovascular system enabling women, researchers and care providers to learn from each individual’s unique physiology and provide data-driven care.
