VPG Medical uses unconventional tech for heart care
Among the companies in the Luminate NY accelerator, VPG Medical Inc. is a bit unique.
While most companies in the accelerator are based around developing hardware products in the optics, photonics and imaging space, VPG is a software company, developing a platform that can be used with built-in smartphone, tablets and computer cameras. In a software atmosphere where virtually every possible use of a phone’s capabilities has been explored, it’s tough to imagine what kind of tech a company could produce to put them in the largest optics accelerator in the world without even having a physical product.
That is, until founder and CEO Jean-Phillippe Couderc explains just what they do.
