Opioid overdose is the most common cause of accidental death in most countries in the developed world.
Nearly all of these deaths are preventable and avoidable.
Altair Medical’s mission is to ensure there are zero deaths from taking opioids.

Overdose Detection

Optimised to detect abnormal breathing associated with opioid induced respiratory depression (OIRD)

Novel Biosensor

Our specially designed wireless biosensor is one of the smallest available. It transmits data to the cloud using a smartphone or tablet.

Remote Monitoring

Biosensor data is analysed in the cloud by algorithms that use machine learning to enhance accuracy.

Overdose Alert

Where signs of overdose are detected, nearby responders are alerted to check the patient.

Life Saving Potential

Overdose monitoring and alerting will maximise the use of naloxone, the highly effective opioid reversal agent.


Designed for home use or in a healthcare setting.
