ANGES QUÉBEC Members Invest in Manyeta and its Telehomecare Application
August 24, 2011
Montreal, August 24, 2011 – Anges Québec is pleased to announce that a group of seven private investors, including Me Robert Brouillette of the law firm Brouillette & Associés, have granted financing to Manyeta, a Laval-based telehealth company that has developed an innovative telehomecare application.
Manyeta’s telehomecare system lets patients with limited mobility due to age or disability stay connected with their healthcare team in real time. Remote interactive systemic follow-up on the patient’s metabolic condition allows the patient to exchange messages with the medical team and receive reminders to take medication. Manyeta’s solutions can be used with iPad, PC, smart phone and similar platforms, but because the company has taken into account the fact that elderly people are generally less familiar with the Internet and new technologies, its telehomecare application can be used with a simple cable TV.
Anges Québec will allow Manyeta to consolidate its management team, complete a clinical study in the US and launch the marketing of this remote systemic follow-up system, which was first successfully tested with a Philadelphia target group. The founder and president of Manyeta, Mario Perron, remarked, “This Anges Québec backing couldn’t be better timed, as we are poised to launch our solution on the US market. I’m glad that with Anges Québec, I found investors who believe in the project and who have confidence in me and in my determination to put technology to work for people.”
As Ms Magaly Charbonneau, who will be coordinating Anges Québec investments with Manyeta, confirmed, “Manyeta’s product corresponds to Anges Québec investment criteria, but it was also Mr. Perron’s long experience, sound judgment and personality that immediately earned our investors’ trust. Mr. Perron has developed an innovative product that anticipates the needs of an aging population and explores the possibilities of using new technologies to develop a homecare follow-up protocol that will make life easier for thousands of people every day.”
The vice president of Anges Québec, André Forest, added, “We have no doubts that Manyeta’s telehealth solutions represent a genuine potential for implementation worldwide. We want to help this company expand under the expert guidance of its president and fonder.”
