About us

Cimon Medical exists to innovate life saving solutions. We do this by developing and manufacturing Doppler ultrasound technology for health care facilities. Our first product, NeoDoppler, provides non-invasive continuous blood flow monitoring for infants.

To reduce neonatal mortality and the risk of neurodevelopmental damage, there is a strong need for improved monitoring of brain circulation during birth, resuscitation and intensive care treatment. But no adequate solution has been available – until now.

Our technology originates from the world-renowned ultrasound environment at The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and St. Olavs University Hospital, in Trondheim, Norway.

Here it was invented by Professor Hans Torp and Pediatric Cardiologist Siri Ann Nyrnes, who are both driving forces in the local ultrasound community.



Doppler Ultrasound for clinical use is developed at the internationally renowned Department of Circulation and Imaging at the Norwegian Technical University (NTNU) in Trondheim, Norway

Pilot- and clinical studies with prototypes initiated at St.Olavs and Oslo Univ. Hospital
