About Us

MISSION:

As a company founded by healthcare professionals we are compelled to serve patients whose quality of life has suffered greatly despite being offered the most effective medical therapies available. We aim to create new, innovative solutions to address a group of diseases that claim the life of thousands each year and impair even more. We intend to bring affordable, life saving medical devices to the masses.

Vision

We believe that as a society our understanding of human physiology & biochemistry is very much still in the infancy stage. After more than 5,000 years of human intuition and innovation we are not yet capable of utilizing gene therapy to repair or prevent organ failure. Largely, pharmacologic measures and invasive options like surgery remain the most viable options to repair the human body. Through the integration of modern technology and innovation we believe that our products have the potential to bring about a renaissance era in medicine, setting the stage for widespread global biomedical advancement.

Motivation

The adage, “Necessity is the mother of invention”, ascribed to the Greek philosopher Plato, is a mantra which encapsulates our inspiration. We are driven to invent, because cardiovascular disease continues to be a leading cause of human morbidity and mortality. Unlike technological breakthroughs that have allowed mankind to enter the realms of outer space, medical technology and innovation has lagged behind and many challenges of our biological inner space remain unexplored and unexplained.

History

Parace Bionics was created in 2004 with the sole purpose of finding innovative bioengineering solutions, to meet the needs of people suffering from cardiovascular disease and the potentially devastating cardiopulmonary manifestations that result. After nearly a decade of research we are now making great strides in the development of three unique innovative cardiac products that will enable us to diagnose and mitigate the effects of heart disease. The Ekoscope™, is an FDA approved device, designed to aide the diagnosis of cardiac arrhythmias and their associated disease states, by digitally processing heart sounds and ECG data in under one minute. We have also pioneered the development of a minimally invasive LVAD and TAH using technology that has unique power regenerating properties (conservation of momentum and energy, like Newton's cradle). This multi-patent pending, advanced power regenerating technology is both revolutionary and unique; and awaiting FDA review. We have enlisted the cooperation and expertise of scientists, physicians, engineers and industrial designers worldwide to address the global challenge and public health crisis of heart disease.

Leadership

The company’s is spearheaded by Carolyn Whatley, MD, MPH, SHM; a Harvard Medical School graduate; a clinical assistant professor with more than a decade long experience as a medical director/ leader in academia. Dr. Whatley is also an active member of the American Medical Association and American College of Physician Executives.

Inspiration

We hold James Maxwell, Sir Isaac Newton & Albert Einstein in the highest esteem, for giving us our understanding of light, electricity, magnetism, energy, mass, gravity and quantum physics. Without their insights, Parace Bionics would have no legacy on which to build upon. Our innovations in various fields of interest, give credit to the laws and equations set down by these prodigious men of science. More importantly, their work were intended to be harnessed, built upon, and utilized globally for the betterment of all mankind.
