Western Economic Diversification Canada awards Kent Imaging with an investment of $1.75M through the Business Scaleup Program.

Oxygen is the key to life. Kent Imaging provides solutions to instantly measure tissue oxygenation in acute and chronic wounds to help in assessing a wound’s capacity to heal. Kent designs, manufactures and distributes a medical imaging device, SnapshotNIR, from their corporate headquarters in Calgary, AB.

The investment provided through Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD) will be leveraged to expand Kent Imaging’s footprint on a global scale. We are very appreciative of WD, as not only are they providing financial support to industry through these programs, they are also facilitating collaboration between industry and all levels of government to accelerate the growth of the Healthtech Ecosystem in Alberta.

“We are very excited to be a recipient of investment through WD’s Business Scale-up program to assist Kent Imaging in leveraging our innovative imaging technology, SnapshotNIR. Kent’s goal is to provide physicians immediate insight into the ability of tissue to heal, thus improving outcomes and reducing complications during treatment. This investment allows us to accelerate our product innovation and expand our global technology footprint.”
