Scottish medtech company set to double workforce

Scottish medtech company Current Health is set to more than double its current headcount after closing a successful £31m funding round to further ramp up sales of its remote healthcare delivery platform.

The funds will help the company create 100 new jobs by the end of this year, half of which are set to be based at the company’s Edinburgh headquarters and the remainder in its main market, the US.

Current Health manufactures a remote monitoring device that is worn on the arm and collects the user’s vital signs. The device was designed to provide a ‘mission control’ for healthcare delivery outside of the hospital.
