Play • 25 min

A device that looks like an astronaut’s helmet and helps you breathe, but not in space, instead, in a hospital… is it science fiction? Arpan and his team at Clarivent will certainly disagree!

On the second part of Med Tech Talks with Arpan Grover, our co-hosts Geoff and Abdo dive deeper into Arpan’s professional trajectory, as he delves into his time at COSMIC during the COVID-19 pandemic, and how Clarivent came out of it as a by-product, and now a full-time job for Arpan.



01:43-07:44 - Arpan explains the concept of what Clarivent does, the details of the product they’re building, and how they plan to improve it further.

07:45-11:30 - Dealing with the legal aspect of business, and trying to patent the technology that Clarivent is building.

11:30-14:41 - Finding the product-market fit for a product built specifically for COVID? No big deal!

14:45-17:30 - Arpan explains the innovation that Clarivent brings with their helmets, and how they solve the discomforts of the traditional CPAP masks.

17:31-19:32 - Scaling up; and the challenges that a new medical device faces during its initial trials at hospitals.

19:33-22:35 - Arpan comments on his choice of building his own start-up and going through that struggle, instead of taking the short route and working at an already established company.
