David Narrow, BME MS ’13, among Forbes 30 Under 30 in healthcare

January 7, 2016

David Narrow, a 2013 biomedical engineering master’s program graduate, has been named by Forbes magazine 30 Under 30 in healthcare.

David, now 25, is CEO of his Baltimore-based company, Sonavex. He has raised an astounding $11 million to develop the EchoSure clot monitoring system. The EchoSure imaging technology makes it possible for nurses without specialized sonographic training to monitor patients for clot formation prior to a serious problem.

In addition, David also runs MonoMano Cycling, a company that makes adaptive bikes for stroke survivors and people with similar limitations.

Narrow was quoted as saying, "I'm extremely humbled by this honor, which is a testament to the talented people I work with every day at Sonavex. It's been a really exciting time for us, with many positive milestones, and our success can be attributed to the hard work and dedication of the founders and our employees — they deserve the spotlight, too."

Narrow developed the EchoSure technology with his team while earning his master’s degree at Johns Hopkins. The development team won the 2013 Biomedical Engineering Innovations, Design, and Entrepreneurship Awards competition.

Sonavex is part of FastForward, a business accelerator program supported by Johns Hopkins Technology Ventures.
