our story

Output Medical was founded by Dr. Jay K Joshi as an Intern managing complex Intensive Care Unit (ICU) patients. Concerned by the limitations of manual urine output measurements and subsequent kidney care management, he set out to develop a technology that would improve the measuring and recording of urine output to help patients with kidney injury or kidney failure.

Born out of a need to improve urine output measurements, Output Medical is passionate about kidney management and saving patient lives.

Output Medical is a multi-disciplinary team of physicians, engineers, and thought-leaders collaborating to advance the standard of care through our technology. Our entrepreneurial spirit drives us towards success, and we have established the framework and vision needed to reach our goals.
