About Us

Can We Save Lives and
Improve Healthcare for Everyone?

Our dream at Oxehealth is to help clinicians, carers and custodians to save lives and improve healthcare for everyone.

Oxehealth has secured the world's first medical device certification for software enabling an optical sensor remotely to measure pulse rate and breathing rate.

Our Digital Care Assistant solutions give clinical staff more time for hands-on care where & when it's needed most; they act as an assistant for when staff can't be there, paying attention to every room.

Oxehealth is majority owned by IP Group Plc and Ora Capital, two major British investment companies backing UK science for the long term.

Tools Clinicians Say They Need

Oxehealth was founded by the Head of Engineering at Oxford University, Professor Lionel Tarassenko CBE. The business was formed at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBME). This unique research group asks clinicians what challenges they most need addressing, and then tasks biomedical engineers with inventing tools to meet those clinical needs.

We stay true to this heritage: we are entirely focused on building the contact-free solutions clinicians, carers and custodians say they need to improve the care and increase the dignity of their patients and other subjects.

Validated Technology

Our solutions are based in rigorous, ground-breaking science: our first two clinically validated studies into the accuracy of our technology were published in 2014 and we have over a dozen patents granted or filed.  

We were, in 2018, the first group in the world to secure medical device certification for software enabling a secure optical sensor to measure pulse rate and breathing rate.

Oxehealth has always worked in close partnership with the NHS: we are part owned by Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and have undertaken studies at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital, Broadmoor Psychiatric Hospital, Royal Brompton Hospital, Oxford Health and Coventry & Warwickshire NHS Partnership Trust.
