About

Nasotrak is developing a nasogastric tube (NGT) system which uses ultrasound technology to help the user to determine the location of the distal end of the NGT to give a real-time, accurate and safe means of tube placement before feeding.

Nasotrak is developing the system in partnership with clinicians from the National Healthcare Group (one of the major healthcare clusters in Singapore) and Trendlines Innovation Labs.

Market Need

Commonly used methods for detecting correct NGT placement are pH aspirates and X-rays. However, these methods are not foolproof: pH aspirates cannot be immediately drawn in more than 50% of patients and misinterpretation of X-rays were responsible for 45% of misplacements.
