Seer Medical provides 21st century diagnostic services for neurological, cardiac and sleep

combine wearable technologies with machine-learning algorithms to remove barriers to
diagnosis. We hope that our work can pave the way for a wider range of healthcare innovation in Australia,
and contribute to a strong med-tech ecosystem here in Victoria.

The Mission
We’re building a web platform to power a new wave of wearable and implantable devices about
to enter the healthcare market. The platform will store and manage the biomedical data from
these devices which would allow us to provide personalised insights, predictions and alerts to
patients in real-time. The platform currently supports our at-home EEG-ECG diagnostic services and will soon
support clinical trials of devices carried out by partner companies.

  • Work with a talented web development team and alongside world experts in neurophysiology and machine learning
