Netherland-based Onera Health has raised €30m ($32.7m) in Series C financing to accelerate the manufacturing and deployment of its products.
Onera also plans to use the funds to accelerate the clearance of second generation at home sleep disorder diagnostics, polysomnography (PSG) systems in Europe and the US. The company launched the first generation of the PSG system in Europe in September 2022.
The PSG system utilises a patch-based sensor system with cloud technology to allow healthcare professionals to perform PSG in both at-home and lab settings. PSG records a variety of vitals, including brain waves, oxygen levels, heart rate and breathing along with eye and leg movements during sleep. It is the gold standard for sleep-related breathing disorders such as obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) and central sleep apnoea.
The Series C financiers included EQT Life Sciences, investing from its EQT Health Economics 3 fund, Gimv, Innovation Industries, Invest-NL, imec.xpand, BOM, and 15th Rock. As part of this transaction, Drew Burdon from EQT Life Sciences and Michaël Vlemmix from Gimv Life Sciences will join Onera’s board of directors.
Onera plans to showcase the PSG system at the American Academy of Sleep Medicine’s event ‘Sleep Medicine Trends 2024’ taking place on 23-24 February in La Jolla, California, as per a 16 January press release.
Multiple companies are investing in the development of sleep diagnostic and remote monitoring devices. A 2022 report by GlobalData forecasts that the remote patient monitoring device market will reach $760m by 2030. The market will exhibit a compound annual growth rate of 3.3% from 2020 to 2030.
