The product was patents pending and will be launched within 2019, while continuouslly improving second version by 2020. Our market plan will initiate and focus in Thailand with collaboration with two Mahidol University hospitals, six hospitals in same district, and Thai Medical society, while attempt to find alliances in Japan in order to expand internationally, given Thailand and Japan moving to full aging society.The potential PD people are 150,000 in 2020. Our revenue in 2020 is $ 1.4 million and increase to $10 million in 2023, while NPV is $540,000 at 40% discount rate and IRR is 80%.
