Tueore Technologies is a privately-held company that develops and licenses technology to prevent hacking of critical devices in the consumer, aerospace and defense industries. Our first product is the Digital Current System (DCS) that renders all current wiring and electronic control systems obsolete, and our first indication is the cardiac pacemaker market.
Hacking is an inconvenient reality in our modern world, but altering of medical devices can lead to injury or death. The possibility of hacking drug delivery pumps has recently been proven by the ability to remotely access them through the hospital network which could result in, at worst, administration of lethal doses of intravenous medications. In fact, the FDA issued guidance regarding device cybersecurity in 2014, followed by a warning to hospitals in 2016 regarding a specific pump that was vulnerable to unauthorized user control. A specific and critical hacking susceptibility lies with cardiac pacemakers which are designed for remote programming and are necessary to maintain proper heart rhythm. A malicious intentional reprogramming of a pacemaker could lead to death, making these devices particularly vulnerable.
