Mobile healthcare company ResApp Health (RAP) has received a research and development (R&D) tax refund of $707,744.

The EMDG is an Australian financial assistance program for aspiring and current exporters. It is not limited to healthcare but spans a range of industries.

ResApp had a busy FY20, launching SleepCheck for sleep apnoea sufferers, teaming up with Phenix Health, and receiving Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) approval for its ResAppDx-EU version 2 app.

ResApp has developed a mobile software device, ResAppDx-EU, which is used by clinicians for the diagnosis of multiple respiratory problems.

It uses machine learning algorithms to analyse a patient’s cough sounds to diagnose diseases and provide quick and accurate information.

It is a software-only solution that can run on smartphones, meaning it does not require any additional hardware or accessories.

ResApp last received a tax refund in December 2019, which totalled $1.8 million.

Shares in ResApp are down 1.47 per cent on the market and are trading at 6.7 cents at 11:28 am AEDT.
