BOCAhealthcare : Revolutionising Body Fluid Management with AI

Alessandro Faragli, Founder & CEO, BOCAhealthcare
In terms of fluid balance, the human body is much like a plant. We all know the situation when in high summer the plants in our home garden seem to slacken due to heat. This reaction of the plants is immediately visible to us; and we immediately water the plants. But, the outcome is quite different for people. The human body consists of approximately 65 percent of water, and even small deviations of their body’s fluid balance can be harmful— particularly in the case of patients with heart failure and chronic kidney disease.
However, unlike plants, water shortage or excess is difficult to detect visually in humans, which is why people tend to rely on technologies. Even then, there have been no simple and reliable methods for measuring fluid balance until now. This is where BOCAhealthcare comes in, establishing itself as the new standard for body fluid management. The company, equipped with innovative AI-based digital healthcare offerings, is empowering organisations to easily manage body fluid levels in their patients.
BOCAHealthcare’s beginnings can be traced back to Alessandro Faragil, the company’s founder and CEO, whose personal experiences prompted him to take the first step. As his father—a heart patient—had faced the challenges of excess body water, Faragil wanted to build a solution that would alleviate such problems for patients. The idea that cropped up in his mind was that of body fluid management system that could diagnose and predict dehydration and overhydration in patients with heart failure and kidney disease.
BOCAhealthcare has developed BOCAhealth—a portable device that is intended for both clinic and home use, which can provide analysis values comparable to the stationary benchmark products in body fluid management
Under the direction of Faragil, BOCAhealthcare has developed BOCAhealth—a portable device that is intended for both clinic and home use, which can provide analysis values comparable to the stationary benchmark products in body fluid management. The pocket-sized device uses multi-frequency bioimpedance technology and software integrated with AI features, all designed to meet the unique needs of healthcare practitioners related to hydration management.
The core of BOCAhealth’s innovation is the software, which is based on the use of artificial intelligence. The system can continuously learn from all user data and improve the accuracy of the analysis. On this basis, trends towards obstructive developments in the patient’s condition are identified precisely at an early stage so that the treating physicians can initiate appropriate treatment—even for patients whose medical history is not yet available. BOCAhealth either can be placed on the patient during the hospital stay by the medical specialist or, with its user-friendliness, can be operated directly from home by the patients themselves.
With such data-driven approaches, BOCAhealthcare aims to improve the patients’ quality of life by eliminating unnecessary hospital stays and helping medical professionals improve their outcomes. Besides, the company also wants to revolutionise the management of body fluid disorders by enhancing not invasive diagnostic solutions for the monitoring of the hydration status of the human body.
