NEW YORK, November 21, 2022-- Wesper, the first clinical-grade FDA-cleared wireless home sleep lab, announced a $9.6 million Series A round to accelerate growth and revenue as well as continue to develop industry-leading diagnostic sensing technology. The round included participation from Valor Equity Partners, Breyer Capital, Spark Capital, as well as angel investors from leading health-tech firms.
Wesper's wireless biometric sensors and algorithms enable at-home medical diagnosis with professional services and ongoing measurement before, during, and after treatment.
