OUR JOURNEY

Praesidium was founded with the purpose of preventing unnecessary tragedy and making life better and safer. Our story began in the summer of 2015 when a few infant hot car deaths occurred in a short span of time. The realization that these should have been prevented put us into action and gave birth to the vision of a technology that would ultimately be able to detect and monitor signs of life without any touch. We named our company for this purpose. Praesidium is a Latin term meaning to guard, help and protect. Introducing BioFi, the first non-contact vital sign detection device.
