Ag Startup Engine at the Iowa State University Research Park has made an investment in Ames-based VetMeasure, Inc., a producer of technology monitoring dogs in post-surgery recovery. VetMeasure’s MeasureON! harness is designed for dogs and detects key health metrics to continuously monitor critical care patients and those recovering from surgery, according to the Ag Startup Engine. The harnesses’ measurements allows health conditions such as hypothermia to be identified and treated earlier, reducing the length of recovery. MeasureON! monitors a dog’s temperature, respiration and heart rate, and the dog’s environmental temperature and humidity. The metrics are viewable by veterinarians and clinic staff through a web application, and automated alerts are sent out when a dog nears critical levels.
