Another US FDA breakthrough designation for AWAK’s predictive AI
Singapore-based medtech AWAK Technologies has obtained its second breakthrough device designation from the United States Food and Drug Administration for its predictive AI.
Its kidney disease progression prediction (KDPP) AI model assists with assessing the risk of kidney disease progression and the initiation of renal replacement therapy. The model was developed in collaboration with Ever Fortune.AI, a spin-off of China Medical University Hospital.
The FDA designation is AWAK’s second, following that for its peritoneal dialysis device in 2019.
AWAK will be collaborating with Singapore General Hospital to test its KDPP model using the hospital’s de-identified data of chronic kidney disease patients. It is also in advanced talks to integrate its solutions with US partners.
