A better way to measure blood pressure
Non-invasive, continuous pressure monitoring — Reinvented
No more squeezing cuffs!
Esperto's patented technology uses sound waves to measure blood pressure without an inflating cuff. It's based on first-principles physics: no guessing games, and no finnicky recalibration.
Continuous monitoring of heart health
Round-the-clock monitoring even when a doctor or nurse isn't present
About Esperto Medical
Esperto Medical was founded on the principles of making medical care more accessible through automation. Our first offering is a noninvasive, continuous blood pressure device meant to enable better vital sign monitoring at home, in the hospital, and maybe even in austere environments... like Mars. Esperto aims to improve medical diagnostics so that clinicians and patients are no longer limited by a hospital environment.
Dr. Aditya Rajagopal is a co-founder and board director of Esperto Medical. He is also a founder, CTO, and a member of the board of directors at ChromaCode, a multiplexed diagnostics company that uses signal compression to lower costs, increase capacity, and standardize measurement with existing PCR instrumentation.

Raymond Jimenez is the Head of Engineering for Esperto Medical, where he specializes in rapid iteration and technology development. Before Esperto, Raymond led several efforts at SpaceX (where he operated Dragon missions to the International Space Station, commanded a satellite test fleet, and redesigned Falcon & Dragon navigation sensors), Boeing (where he designed power supplies for geostationary communications satellites), and Phase Four (where he led electronics development for the company's first flight-ready plasma thrusters).
Mr. Jimenez specializes in full-stack electrical engineering, spanning system design through firmware devlopment and product test. By leveraging the ever-marching trend of miniaturization in consumer and industrial electronics, he aims to bring ever more efficient and compact designs to previously untapped fields.
Raymond Jimenez received his BS in Electrical Engineering from Caltech.Back
Austin Rutledge brings a general engineering background with a passion for mathematically modeling the physical world.
Before Esperto, Mr. Rutledge specialized in two fields: positioning and navigation, and sensor ingestion/processing. He brings over 9 years of experience with GNSS navigation applications (including RTK, INS sensor fusion and sensor self-calibration algorithms), and helped develop an entire sensor API for generic sensor integration (e.g., applying sensitivities/scale factors, temperature compensation, calibrations, and various mounting geometries). He also brings over 12 years of experience with buried utility detection and location for both lines (cylindrical EM fields) and point sources (EM dipoles). He has developed optimization solutions for near field detection/positioning of underground beacons (EM dipoles).
In addition, Mr. Rutledge has experience with radar signal processing and image processing applications, and worked on a team to oversee real-time image orthorectification and blending of aerial UAV imagery. Additionally, he developed feature detection methods for maritime superstructures to aid in target classification.Back
Dr. William Dempsey is a Staff Scientist at Esperto Medical. William obtained his BS and MS from Johns Hopkins University in Biomedical Engineering, where he modeled cancer-relevant biochemical reaction systems in silico. Subsequently, he obtained his PhD in Bioengineering at Caltech, developing a set of nanoparticle- and non-invasive transgenic-based imaging tools to tackle fundamental questions in early development and wound repair in vivo. After refining his skills in nonlinear imaging at Caltech, Dr. Dempsey examined novel fluorescence and harmonic imaging phenomena at ETH Zürich in Switzerland, uncovered foundational structural correlates in the brain during memory formation at the University of Southern California, and returned to Caltech to track early stage mammalian development with high spatiotemporal resolution. Before joining Esperto Medical, Dr. Dempsey developed assays and analytical methods for spatial multi-omic sequencing applications at Singular Genomics.Back
Matt Fu is a Senior Mechanical Engineer for Esperto Medical. He received his B.Sc. from Caltech in Mechanical Engineering and Ph.D. from Princeton University in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.
