MUSE Diagnostics is a Bangalore based Medical Device company founded by a Veterinarian, a Sound Engineer & a Geneticist.
In 2016, Arvind Badrinarayanan & Sumukh Mysore met at a recording studio in Bangalore, where Arvind, a veterinarian, was trying to extract digital heart sounds from a Vinyl LP from the 1960s that had recorded Dog heart sounds, to run through a diagnostic algorithm. Sumukh, a sound engineer and musician was at the studio where his knowledge of audio recording, formats, and transfer started a conversation among them.
This led to a deep discussion on medical technology and how to create and improve devices by applying scientific principles within a digital framework. We reasoned that this would enable the creation of databases that could suggest diagnosis!
