When an investor thinks of stocks in the cardio-monitoring arena, names like General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) and Medtronic PLC (NYSE:MDT) tend to surface first. And well they should. Medtronic is the largest name dedicated solely to equipment that tells doctors and nurses how well a patient’s heart is functioning, while GE Healthcare smartly leverages the name of its parent company’s recognizable name to win market share in the medical equipment space.
General Electric and Medtronic aren’t the only names in town, however, and certainly not the top prospects for an investor seeking out a fresh, undiscovered growth opportunity. That honor arguably belongs to an up-and-coming small cap outfit called Biotricity Inc. (OTCMKTS:BTCY), which is nearing its first-ever revenue.
Don’t look for a Biotricity product quite yet, as they’re not on the market. Consumers as well as investors will want to keep their eyes and ears open for two of them soon though, however, with one of those devices being a high-precision, FDA-approved instrument for use by healthcare workers in a clinical setting. The other device is a consumer-oriented version of the same technology, giving BTCY access to not just one but two crucial markets. Even more recently Biotricity reported it was opening up its development pipeline to the fetal monitoring and sleep apnea markets. Heart-monitoring is the near-term venture, though.
The two products are called biotricity and biolife (neither moniker is supposed to be capitalized). The latter is a wireless, remote consumer-oriented heart rate and activity monitoring device, and the former is a clinical-grade monitoring device… also wireless and remotely operated/monitored.
Bioflux is only available by prescription. The bioflux hardware includes an ECG (heart-rhythm) monitoring device, software, and if desired, service from a monitoring lab that performs remote diagnostic monitoring for up to 30 consecutive days at a time. It

Biotricity Inc (OTCMKTS:BTCY) announced on Tuesday morning it was teaming up with Global to Local (G2L) to develop remote monitoring solutions that not only work, but serve the underserved (medically speaking) community. This partnership is of particular interest to current and would-be BTCY investors, as it will likely validate the crux of the work the company has done thus far.
Biotricity is the developer of two different though related technologies. One is called bioflux, and the other is called biolife. Both are heart-monitoring devices… the former for use by caregivers in a clinical setting, while the latter is for use by individuals outside of a clinical setting. Neither is on the market yet, but both are projected to be on the market next year. The company recently filed a 510k request with the FDA for its bioflux technology (the 510k path is for medical devices rather than drugs, and as such doesn’t require a lot of regulatory deliberation), and has heard back from the FDA about a key part of the device already – it got the green light. Another arm of the FDA must look at other aspects of the device.
The technology is unique, in that it not only provides stunningly accurate detailed information about a patient’s heart function, but it constantly feeds that data – remotely – to a caregiver and monitor that can make good use of that data. In August the company announced AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) would be handling the wireless (cellular) connectivity between clinics and patients’ bioflux devices.
It’s a breakthrough, for many reasons, not the least of which is that remote monitoring lowers overall healthcare costs for those patients, and ultimately, for insurers.
The hardware is not yet available on a commercial basis, but it is being tested in a clinical setting. The Global to Local partnership will be another field test of sorts, validating the work Biotricity has performed on the R&D front.
