Thermology Health, a medical technology company and spinout from the National Physical Laboratory, has appointed Yuval Yashiv as its new CEO.

Yashiv co-founded IRISS Medical Technologies, an ophthalmic medical device company where he held the position of both co-founder and CEO. He has also served as CEO of 3i-backed software company Pixology Plc, and also as a venture capitalist at Eurovestech Plc.

Yashiv is currently a senior advisor to DAI Magister, an investment bank which advises international technology and climate companies, and an entrepreneur mentor in residence at the Institute of Entrepreneurship & Private Capital of London Business School.

Previously known as Celsius Health, Thermology Health is focused on the development of robust and reliable thermal imaging measurement in healthcare applications and has devised an innovative device for the early detection of diabetic foot ulcers. 

“I am delighted to join Thermology Health to support its pioneering work,” said Yashiv. “Our focus continues to be on utilising our technology to empower clinicians and transform the health of their diabetic patients.
