A Santa Cruz company seems to have its finger on the pulse of the healthcare industry, so to speak.
Fullpower Technologies has found success mixing one of the oldest professions known to mankind, caregiving, with 21st century technology. The company makes devices that monitor bodily activities, such as sleep patterns, and the apps for smartphones and tablets to which the devices upload their data.
Last week, the company announced several new patents for technology for "noninvasive wearable wireless medical devices and applications" that it thinks will soon become indispensible in the U.S. healthcare industry.
The technologies, some of which are market-ready and some of which are currently under development, are expected to help healthcare professionals determine appropriate medication dosages, gain accurate readings of health indicators more quickly and collect data about a patient that's more holistic.
The reason we are writing about Fullpower Technologies is that this business was, at one point, a mere startup. We want people who have business ideas that they believe in to understand that all the successful companies of today were once just ideas. It certainly is not as if they were all overnight successes.
If you have decided it is time to take your business idea from concept to a reality, it may be a good idea to have a consultation with a business law attorney first. He or she will be able to identify issues you may need to address in the near future and that will help you develop a clear and realistic path forward.
