Fischer Medical Partners with Wonder Tech to Provide AI based Mental Healthcare Driven Solutions

In a development, that could potentially change the mental healthcare scenario in India, reasonably priced MRI equipment manufacturer Fischer Medical Ventures has recently announced that it has invested in Wonder Tech Group, a Singaporean company that uses artificial intelligence to transform mental healthcare through its wholly owned subsidiary. The company in question is Time Medical International Ventures (India) Private Limited.

This makes Fischer MVL the first Indian company to produce cutting-edge medical imaging equipment. Focusing on mental health, Fischer MVL makes investments in a range of diagnostic tools. Fischer MVL has shown its commitment to bettering mental healthcare with its investment in Wonder Tech, which comes after its subsidiary engaged with "The Therapy Platform" in mental health therapy.

Recall that Wonder Tech pioneered biomarker technology, a breakthrough that significantly improves mental health diagnosis. From a 60-second voice sample in any language, its AI-driven acoustic-based system quickly assesses mental wellness.

This speech-based digital mental health platform uses voice biomarkers to improve early diagnosis and treatment through private, objective, and affordable mental health screening.

Leading medical facilities, chronic disease management companies, and insurance companies have confirmed that Wonder Tech's nine-year-old technology accurately assesses depression severity with 83% accuracy.

The Lancet Global Health reports that mental illnesses impact over a billion people worldwide. By 2032, the mental health sector should have grown from USD 399.7 billion in 2023 to USD 530.5 billion. Despite the large market, mental health diagnostics have not advanced much; they mostly rely on psychiatrists for diagnosis, which is expensive, time-consuming, and stigmatised, preventing early assessment and treatment.

The scalable, unbiased, and user-friendly speech biomarker detection system from Wonder Tech collects data from mobile phones without the need for hardware. By using AI triage, it offers customised, comfortable diagnostics in private.

"Our partnership with Wonder Tech reinforces our mental healthcare investment," stated Ravindran Govindan, Chairman and Managing Director of Fischer MVL. In this critical yet underdeveloped sector, we want to rule the world. This investment gives us the rights to scale up a technology that works across languages, including several Indian languages, and market Wonder Tech's acoustic-based depression detection solution throughout ASEAN, India, and the Middle East."

The investment and partnership thrilled Wendy Wu, founder and chairman of Wonder Tech Group: "Fischer MVL's funding and marketing support propel us towards our goal of democratising mental healthcare globally, helping more patients detect mental health issues early and seek assistance while protecting their privacy and reducing screening costs." Our system uses a few seconds of voice data to measure mental health and wellbeing for people and companies. Fischer MVL's robust sales network will greatly assist us in growing our business.

Through their strategic partnership, Fischer MVL and Wonder Tech Group establish a benchmark for innovation, accessibility, and quality in mental healthcare worldwide. The group wants to lead the way in advanced medical technology and accessibility, therefore improving healthcare with an emphasis on innovation, affordability, and quality.
